Question and Answers

Q:

Kenmore gas oven does not heat up to bake.

A:

The kitchen has become a gathering place while meals are prepared and you don't want to have friends or family gathered only to find the oven does not work. I located a similar question from a previous expert post that lists some possible answers. It may help while you wait for the expert to review your model. If you do decide to have an experienced technician diagnose and make repairs, an option is to visit Sears Home Services and use the handy scheduler. I attached the links below.

Thank you for your question and I understand your concern.

Based on your symptom the failure is most likely a burnt out or broken bake igniter. In order to access the bake igniter, remove the oven door as instructed in the User's manual. After removing the oven door, remove the floor of the oven and the panel below it.

To remove the oven bottom, remove the two hold down screws at the rear of the oven bottom. Pull up at rear, disengage the front of the oven bottom from the front frame, and pull the oven bottom out of the oven. Remove the burner baffle so that you see the burner and igniter. Turn the oven on and if you find the oven igniter glowing and you never see any burner ignition, replace the glow bar igniter. The oven igniter is part #5303935066 which can be ordered at Sears PartsDirect

If you do not feel confident repairing this problem yourself, then you can have it repaired at your home by a Sears technician. Here is a link for the website: Sears Home Services .

Thank you so much! The surprise for me this morning was that the oven 'all of a sudden' began working again....Hmmmm.... But we will monitor it closely. It feels really good to have specific instructions in case it stops again. We appreciate you help

Is there any chance of getting the attachment to Joey's reply larger? I have a Kenmore model 790.30472400 and I'm having the same problem. Broiler works but oven doesn't. Thanks.

Barry; There could be one of three possible failures preventing the bake burner from igniting. I added an image below of the wiring diagram and traced the bake circuit in yellow and green. Yellow is 120 volts and green is the Neutral. In order for the bake burner to ignite, the K2 relay on the control board must close in order to provide the line voltage to the bake igniter. The Bake valve must also have a complete circuit through the valve or the neutral will not be provided to the bake igniter. So with this said, the bake igniter must measure continuity across the two leads when disconnected. The bake valve must measure continuity when disconnected and measured with an Ohm meter. If the bake igniter is Okay and bake valve is okay, the failure is the electronic oven control board/clock assembly. Now, if the igniter is glowing and the bake burner never ignites, the bake igniter is too weak to pull enough current/amperage to cause the bake valve to open. I hope this is helpful. If I may be of further assistance as more details become available, please reply to this post. Be sure to disconnect the oven from the power source before disconnecting and tested the bake igniter and gas valve.
