Question and Answers

Q:

Why is my bottom oven element not working? 79079913300 Kenmore Gas range

A:

Thank you for choosing SearsPartsDirect. I will be more than happy to assist you with your Kenmore range.

From the information you have provided above, I would suggest replacing the lower element. By replacing the element it should fix the issue. if both elements went out than it would be a bigger problem like a control board or something of that nature, but it’s probably just a burnt out element. The part number for you element is 316075104.this can be ordered from searspartsdirect.com.

I hope you found this information useful. Again thank you for choosing Sears, we appreciate your business, have a great day.

A:

There is a refurbished (rebuilt) control board available through the Sears PartsDirect website. The part number for that refurbished board is 316272201R (an "R" is added to the end of the part number). Here is a direct link for that part: Clock Timer .

I assume that your husband already tested the components and concluded that the clock control board is bad. Here are some diagnostic tips that might help him check to see if any issues were missed:

  1. Check the house circuit breakers or house fuses for the range outlet. The control will power up but the oven elements will not heat if the L2 leg of power is not provided to the range.
  2. If the house circuit breakers or fuses are okay, you can check the voltage at the range outlet. NOTE: You should only check that live outlet voltage is you are completely confident in your technical ability to safely measure it. Wear proper safety equipment when checking live voltage -- insulated rubber electrical safety gloves and safety goggles . The second image below shows a diagram of the outlet with voltages that should be measured. If one leg of voltage is missing at that outlet, I recommend that you have an electrician check the house wiring and repair that issue.
  3. The first image below shows a wiring diagram for the range with the oven element circuit traced in wire colors. I recommend that you unplug the range and check the wiring connections on the control board. If you are comfortable with checking the live voltage, you can carefully check to see if you have 240 volts going to that control board. Unplug the range as soon as that live voltage check if complete if you conduct it.
  4. You can check the resistance through the bake and broil circuits from the control board using a volt/ohm meter. You can check the bake circuit through the yellow and orange wire. The broil circuit can be checked through the blue and orange wires. You should measure around 15 to 30 ohms of resistance through those circuits. If the control board has 240 volts going to it and the bake and broil circuits are good, then you will need to replace that clock control board.

I hope that these additional tips help. Those issues may have already been checked since your husband was ready to replace that clock control board.

If you need more assistance, reply with additional details.

Q:

What would cause all 5 surface burner ignitors to stop working?

A:

The spark ignitor system consists of 5 burner valve switches (key#3), spark module (key#8), electrodes and a voltage supply. The 5 switches are connected in a parallel circuit. Whenever any burner knob is pressed and rotated to the "LITE" position the burner switch closes and completes the voltage supply to the spark ignitor which powers up and supplies voltage to all 5 electrodes/spark igniters which will begin jumping spark between the electrode and the grounded burner. So, in order for the electrode to begin sparking the burner switch must close to complete the supply voltage to the spark module. In order to diagnose the failure will require checking the voltage supply to the spark module whenever any one burner switch is set to "LITE". Since all 5 quit at the same time could indicate a failed spark module or a loose wire connection between the 5 switches and the spark module. I will not be able to say with any certainty what the failure is without physically being there so I can not recommend any parts. I added an image below with intructions on how to raise the top and how to remove the manifold cover.

I recommend calling a service technician to diagnose the failure.
