Question and Answers

Q:

KENMORE FREE STANDING OVEN MODEL 790.78629401 BOTTOM BURNER IS NOT HEATING UP IN THE BAKE MODE, BUT THE TOP BURNER HEATS UP ON THE BROIL MODE.

A:

From the description you give the problem will be with the control, ignitor or oven valve.

The wiring diagram in the image below may help you with this.

You don't mention any details about the ignitor but it and the valve coil can be checked for resistance if you have access to a volt/ohm meter.

The ignitor is the most likely cause of the no bake element and the least expensive part. The ignitor 316489400 can be obtained from the following link: Sears PartsDirect .

If the ignitor glows then the control is most likely okay and the problem will be with the valve.

I hope this information is helpful to you.

If there are any additional details such as an error code I would be able to assist you further.

The ignitor does have resistance on it, is there a range that the resistance should be within to tell if it's still good to use. The ignitor does glow, so could it be the valve instead. Thanks for the advice.
