Question and Answers


oven and broiler gas wont light or come on 79075722991 Kenmore Gas range


Thank you for your inquiry on your Kenmore Range, Model: 790.75722991. From reviewing the details on your model, the bake burner operation works the same as the broil burner. When Bake is selected, the bake glow bar igniter must receive 120 volts and begin to glow red. The bake igniter must pull enough current/amperage to open the bake gas valve before gas will flow to the bake burner and ignite off of the red glowing igniter. If the igniter is glowing, then the igniter is most likely too weak to pull enough current to open the bake valve.

If the bake igniter is not glowing red, it could have a broken back igniter, an open circuit in the bake valve or it could have a faulty electronic oven control board. Also, on the gas pressure regulator, it may have a flip lever on it and if it gets flipped to the closed position, gas will not flow to the oven burner. See image below. Check and make sure the lever did not get flipped to the OFF/Closed position.

Safety Warning: Before beginning the repair, disconnect the direct power supply to the range to prevent the risk of injury or any electrical shock.

If you don’t feel comfortable or confident in this repair, then you can have it repaired at home by a sears technician. I have the included a link to the website: Sears Home Services or call 1-800-469-4663.


I hope this answered your question. Thank you for contacting, and have yourself a wonderful day.

Igniter repair Kenmore range


Thank you for your question and I understand your concern.

I see someone entered a model number of 790.75722991 in the model number field and I will base my answer on this model.

The sealed burner igniter/electrode is secured to the bottom of the surface burner base. There is screw that is threaded from the bottom up. The top will need to be hinged open and most likely the burner base removed from the gas supply tube in order to access the head of the screw.

Before the top can be lifted up, every little screw must be removed from every burner. After removing the three screws from around each of the sealed burners open the oven door and look to see if there are any screws threaded up under the front of the top. If there are no screws, look between the bottom of the top and where it sits on the frame for two spring clips. You will need to slip a thin putty knife between the bottom front of the top and frame and push in on the clip to release the top. These clips are located about an inch inwards from each corner. You should be able to see the two clips. Push in and hold pressure and then lift that corner up a little and then go the other side and do the same. Be careful to not bend or break any of the gas tubes under the top. 

NOTE: Disconnect the power cord from the power source and turn the gas supply off before servicing.

The electrode is part # 316011200  for Kenmore gas range model 790.75722991. If you find the ceramic insulator cracked or broken, it will need to be replaced which can be ordered from

I hope this is helpful. If I may be of further assistance as more details become available, please reply to this post.

Thank you for your question on the bake function causing a strong gas odor.

Have you tried the broil to see if that does the same thing?

If it does not then I would suggest that the oven igniter is getting weak and needs to be replaced.

If the broiler does same thing the safety valve may be the problem.

The part number for the oven bake igniter is: 5303935066.

You will need to remove the oven racks and the oven bottom to get to the bake igniter.


Then open the oven door and remove all the racks.

Then locate the two chrome screws in the back bottom of the oven and loosen and lift the bottom of the oven panel and pull back to release from the front oven chassis.

Then you will need to remove the nut that secure the flame spreader over the burner tube.

Once removed you will see the igniter mounted to the side of the burner tube.

Remove the screws that secure the igniter to the burner tube and carefully pull the wire harness from the back wall of the oven cavity and disconnect the wire connector.

With the new igniter in hand, (please handle the igniter with care because it cannot take any ruff handling) mount to the burner tube and connect the wire harness and re-assemble in reverse order.

The part number for the igniter is: 5303935066 the igniter is about $64.00, and you can purchase it from Sears Parts direct. It looks like the replacement igniter has hard wires so you will have to cut the wires on the old harness and wire in the new with the porcelain wire nuts.

Please let me know what you find and we can continue troubleshooting if you need it.
