Thank you for your question and I understand your concern.

Your oven burner and broil burner uses an electronic glow bar igniter. When the control is programmed for baking, the control board must close the bake relay which completes the voltage supply (120 volts) to the bake igniter. The bake igniter glow red hot and it must pull enough current/amperage to open the oven gas valve. If the bake igniter is glowing, the igniter is likely too weak to open the gas valve. Replace the bake igniter and the oven gas valve will likely open and the igniter will ignite the burner.

If the bake igniter is NOT glowing, it could have a broken bake igniter or a faulty electronic oven control.

The bake burner and bake igniter is located under the floor of the oven. The oven floor can be removed to access the bake igniter. You should find two screws at the back of the oven floor to remove in order to lift out the oven floor. You will also see another panel under the floor to remove. It will likely have screw in the 4 corners to remove and then you can lift the panel out to access the burner and igniter. The bake igniter #5303935066 for model 790.75768002 can be ordered from Sears Parts Direct. NOTE: Disconnect the power cord from the power source before servicing.

I also added a video showing the basic procedure.

Check the things I have covered here and if I may be of further assistance as more details become available, please reply to this post.

Thank you for your question and I understand your concern.

In order for the oven to ignite; the bake igniter must glow red hot and it must pull enough current/amperage to cause the oven gas valve to open. The bake igniter is located under the floor of the oven and is mounted on the burner assembly. The bake igniter can be accessed by removing the oven floor. Remove the two screws at the rear of the oven floor and lift the oven floor out. Once the oven floor has been taken out, you will see another panel that will need to be taken out in order to see the bake burner and bake igniter. If the igniter is not glowing or if it glows, the igniter is likely broken or too weak to allow the oven gas valve to open. If the igniter is not glowing, it can be removed and tested for continuity with an Ohm meter. NOTE: Disconnect the power cord from the power source before removing and replacing the bake igniter.

The bake igniter #5303935066 for Kenmore range model 790.75768002 can be ordered from Sears Parts Direct.

A:

What you are describing does sound unusual. The short cycling of that oven burner could be caused by a weak glow bar igniter or a problem with the clock control board in that console. The theory of operation for that glow bar ignition system is shown in the image below. If the igniter is weak, it will not be able keep that safety gas valve open properly. A weak igniter will cause that short cycling if that igniter continues to glow through that short cycling process. That issue can be hard to observe. You will normally see a problem with the oven being able to maintain the proper temperature if that igniter is weak. If you see that type of issue in your oven, I recommend that you have a service technician replace repair the range. Here is a link for the Sears Service website: Sears Home Services .

There is a possibility that a defective control board is causing this problem. If the oven is heating properly and you are seeing no other problems as this time, then you can probably continue to use the range even though the process that you are describing is unusual. If you detect any problems with the range, I recommend that you have it serviced.

If you need more help, reply with additional details and we will assist you further.
