Elements not heating correctly 79091063705 Kenmore Electric range


Hello glad to help.  Thank You for choosing Sears


I am sorry and do understand your frustration when there is trouble with the range.

Glad to help out.   Im  looking at your Kenmore model number 790.91063705.

Strange that both elements will go out.  Have you tried to exchange them.   Please never do that because though it sounds a simple thing to do if one is bad and you put another in its place then that burner will go bad too.  Also can go bad if  you aren't using the correct burner bowls.  Make sure you don't use the "so called universal" drain bowls.   They hurt more than they help.

Sounds like  you need to get new burners and doing this best to replace the terminal block too.

Oven will not bake/broil


It is the time of the year that we use the oven more than usual and when it does not come on it is a concern. Others have asked a similar question on problems with the Kenmore range and the response in the link provided below will be most helpful while waiting on model number specific information.

The image below shows a wiring diagram for your range with the circuits through the elements traced in wire colors. You could have a wiring failure or a problem with that electronic oven control board that would prevent the oven elements from heating. It is unlikely that both the bake and the broil elements would fail at the same time. I recommend that you unplug the range and check the wiring connections in those circuits first. You can access the wiring connections by removing the back panels on the range.

If the wiring connections are okay, then you will probably need to make some live voltage checks to diagnose and repair this failure. You seem to indicate that you checked the voltage on the range. If you are confident that you can safely check the live voltage going out of the control board, then you may be able to fix this problem yourself. If you are not comfortable with making the live voltage checks, then I recommend that you have a service technician examine and repair the range. You can schedule service through this link: Sears Home Services .

To check the voltage, you will need a volt/ohm meter and the proper safety equipment. Wear electrical safety gloves and safety goggles when checking live voltage. Unplug the range as soon as live testing is completed . You can check the voltage going to the bake element in the bake mode by setting the control to bake at 350 and then measuring the voltage on the yellow and orange wires on the back of the control board. You should measure 240 volts going out of that control board. You can check the broil circuit in a similar manner through the blue and orange wires. If you do not detect the proper voltage out of the control board, then you can measure the voltage going into the control board on the black (L1) wire and the red (L2 IN) wire. You should measure 240 volts going into that control board. If you have that 240 volts going into the control board but the control board is not closing the relays to apply 240 volts to the bake nor the broil elements, then the control board (part 316455420) will need to be replaced. As noted above, be sure that you unplug the range as soon as live voltage checks are completed.

You can order that electronic oven control board from this page if necessary: Electronic Oven Control Board for Kenmore Range Model 790.91063705 . You will normally also need to replace the overlay (part 316220712). Unplug the range before accessing and replacing internal components.

If you are not getting proper voltage going into the control board then you will need to unplug the range and check the black and red wires going to the control board.

If you have proper voltage going into the control board and coming out of the control board, then you will need to unplug the range and check the wiring between the control board and the oven elements.

I hope that this information helps. If you need more assistance, reply with additional details.
