Check to see if the control will light up briefly when you press any of the buttons. If it does, then the time-of-day clock is turned off. You can restore the display using the procedure in the image below.


If that is not the problem, then you will probably need to replace the clock control board in the console (part 316452311). Before ordering that part, you can unplug the range and check the wiring connections on the back of that control board. Remove the upper back panel behind the console to access the control board. The power to the control board is connected through the black and white wire. If those connections are okay, then replacing that control board should fix your problem (unless you have a bad outlet cord or a wiring failure in the power supply circuit). 


Note: If you replace that control board, you will normally also need to replace the overlay (part 316419307).


You can order parts from this page: Kenmore Gas Range Model 790.78662602 Repair Parts.   Unplug the range before accessing internal components and replacing parts.
