Question and Answers

Q:

I have a Kenmore Elite Duel Fuel Range, Model # 79079389406. The burners are not lighting, this last week we have had to use a match.

A:

Going old school to light the oven and broiler would get tiresome. I located a similar question that may help while you wait for the expert. I attached the link below. I hope this information helps.

Check to see if the oven is heating properly. If not, you could have a voltage supply problem. The igniters in this range are powered off of the L2 leg of voltage to the range. I provided a wiring diagram of your range in the first image below. If the oven is not heating, I recommend that you check the house circuit breakers or fuses for the range.

If the oven heats, then the voltage supply is apparently okay. You could have a wiring failure in that circuit that is traced below or you could have a bad spark module. The second image shows some general access information for the type of range that you have. Your range may look slightly different than the one shown below but you should be able to use that information to access and check the wiring in that circuit. Unplug the range and shut off the gas supply before accessing internal components. If you find not wiring problems, then you will probably need to replace that spark module.

You can order parts from the Sears PartsDirect website if necessary.

If you need more help, reply with additional details.

If you get to the point where you need to have a service technician diagnose and repair this failure, you can schedule service through this link: Sears Home Services .

Thank You, The oven works GREAT, After looking everythig over I really think it must be the spark module. Because after speaking with one of your service techs it is highly unlikely that all 4 burners would stopped sparking at the sametime. If you could send me detailed instructions on how to replace the spark module that would be great. Again Thank You,

I provided a direct link for that spark module replacement part below this response. That bottom right corner of the second image provided above shows the basic procedure for replacing the spark module in this type of range. You will probably find that spark module by UNPLUGGING the range and removing the back panels. Once you locate that spark module, you can follow that basic procedure to replace it. If you need more help, let us know.

You should find that spark igniter module on the back of the range behind that rear panel. Unplug the range and remove the lower back panel. It is attached with screws on each side. Once you remove that panel, you should find that spark igniter module mounted on the side of the frame as shown in the image below. Finding that spark igniter module is the essential step in this repair. The exact location will vary. I recommend that you unplug the range and make sure that you can locate that component before ordering the part. If you can locate that module then you can order the part and replace it. Replacing that component involves removing the wires and then pulling it off of the frame where it is mounted. You can then mount the new spark igniter module and connect the wires to the new module in the same manner that they were connected to the old one. Mark or document the location of the wires so that they can be reconnected properly. Keep in mind that replacing this igniter module is not guaranteed to absolutely fix your problem. A failure in the wiring harness could also prevent the igniter electrodes from sparking properly. If you need more help, let us know.
