Question and Answers

Q:

why does the stove top work but not the oven?

A:

They pretty much work independently of each other. I love to bake so I did some quick research to find what other expert technicians might have written about this in the past. I found one response from a technician I really respect. Review his answer (it's on your particular model number) while waiting for your expert response. I hope this helps you and have a nice day.

Thank you for your question and I understand your concern.

Based on your symptom and details I would suspect a faulty electronic oven control/clock assembly.

Before replacing the electronic oven control (EOC) make a visual inspection of the bake and broil elements. If one of the two elements happened to burn out and short, it can cause the electronic oven control to fail. So, make sure that the bake and broil elements do no show any signs of cracks or blister before installing a new electronic oven control/clock assembly. Note: Disconnect the power cord from the range before inspecting the oven elements and before removing the panel from behind the control panel and replacing the oven control. The electronic oven control #316455420 for Kenmore range model 790.91072602 can be ordered from Sears Parts Direct.

If you do not feel confident repairing this problem yourself, then you can have it repaired at your home by a Sears technician. Here is a link for the website: Sears Home Services .

You did not mention that you were having any trouble with the stove top burners heating. I assume that those components work okay.

The problem with the bake and broil elements not heating could be caused by a wiring failure or a bad clock control board in the console. It would be a rare failure for both of the heating elements to break at once. I recommend that you unplug the range and check the wiring connections on that back of the clock control board in the range. Here is a brief repair video that shows how to access (and replace) that clock control board in the console: Range Clock Control Replacement . You don't have to remove that control board yet. Just access that back of it (with the range unplugged ) so that you can check the wiring connections. The first image below shows the wiring diagram for the bake and broil element circuits. The second image shows the location of those wires on the clock control board. Check the red, orange, blue and yellow wires to make sure that they are all properly connected.

Look for a burn mark or visible damage to the back of that circuit board. If the control board is apparently damaged, it will need to be replaced. You can order that part from the Sears PartsDirect website. The part number for that clock control board is 316455420. Here is a direct link for that part: Clock Control .

If you find no wiring failures or apparent damage to the clock control board, you can check the resistance through the bake and broil circuits using a volt/ohm meter (with the range still unplugged ). Remove the orange wire and check the resistance between that orange wire and the yellow wire (this checks the bake circuit). You should measure between 10 and 40 ohms in that circuit (usually around 25 ohms of resistance). Perform the same check between the orange and the blue wires (broil circuit). If you measure the proper resistance through those circuits, this indicates that the wiring and elements are okay. Replacing the clock control board in this situation will probably be necessary.

Further analysis of this failure would require live voltage checks. Those tests are dangerous and should normally be conducted only by a service technician using proper safety equipment (insulated rubber electrical safety gloves and safety goggles).

This information may help you fix this oven failure on your own. If you need more assistance, reply with additional details.

If you do not feel confident repairing this problem yourself, then you can have it repaired at your home by a Sears technician. Here is a link for the website: Sears Home Services .

A:

The link for a previous answer that Celene provided in the above response provides troubleshooting that you should be able to use on your range. You likely have a failed electronic control board or a wiring problem. I provided the wiring diagram for your range in the image below. The L2 supply to the control board is traced in red. The L2 supply from the control board to the elements is traced in orange. I recommend that you unplug the range and check these wiring connections on the control board. A loose wiring connection could cause this failure. Check the control board for a burned spot or signs of damage. If you find no problems with the wiring or damage to the control board, then you would likely need to continue with the troubleshooting provided in that previous answer if you are comfortable with making voltage checks. If you are not completely confident that you can check the voltage being supplied to the elements, I recommend that you have a service technician repair this problem. Here is a link for the Sears Service website in case you need it: Sears Home Services .

If you can determine the failed component, you can order parts from the Sears PartsDirect website.

If you need more help, reply with additional details and we will assist you further.
