Question and Answers


my oven is not heating to temp.


I understand that your oven is not heating to it's selected temperature and this can be a big problem when you are making a nice home cooked meal. I have taken some time to research your question here on the Manage My Life website and I noticed that someone else had asked a similar question with a posted response from an expert. I attached the link below if you are interested in viewing. I hope the link that I provided is helpful. Have a great day.

Thank you for your question and I understand your concern.

Based on your symptom and details I suspect a weak bake igniter. If the bake igniter becomes weak and does not pull enough current/amperage it can cause a long delay in the opening of the oven gas valve. To access the bake igniter you will need to remove the oven bottom. Replacing the bake igniter will likely resolve the problem.

The electronic oven control does not have a thermostat in the control. The control has a bake relay that closes then the oven temperature sensor calls for heat. When the bake relay closes and completes the path of voltage to the bake igniter; the igniter must glow and pull enough current/amperage before the oven gas will open.

The bake igniter #316489400 for Kenmore range model 790.78582404 can be ordered from Sears Parts Direct.

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