Since you were able to access the back of that clock control board, I recommend that you check the resistance through the bake and broil circuits using a volt/ohm meter. Be sure that the range is unplugged when accessing internal components. The image below shows a wiring schematic for that range with the bake and broil circuits marked in wire colors. You can check the resistance of the bake element circuit through the yellow and orange wires. The broil circuit can be checked through the blue and orange wires. You should measure between 10 and 30 ohms of resistance through those circuits. If you do then those elements are probably okay. In that situation, you probably have a bad clock control board in that range. If you are completely confident that you can safely check the live voltage going into and out of that control board, then you can check for 240 volts going to the control board on the black and red wires. NOTE: You should only check that live voltage if you are completely confident in your technical ability to safely measure it. Wear electrical safety gloves and safety goggles when conducting that live voltage test. Unplug the range as soon as live testing is completed . If you have 240 volts going into the control board, then you can check for 240 volts going to the bake element through the yellow and orange wires when the oven is set in the bake mode. You can also check for 240 volts through the blue and orange wires in the broil mode. If you have 240 volts going into the board but the control is not providing the 240 volts to the elements, then that clock control board will need to be replaced. You can order that control board from this page: Clock Control Board for Kenmore Range 790.92681301 . Be sure that you unplug the range before accessing and replacing that clock control board. You may also need the overlay unless you can reuse the original one as shown in this repair video: Range Clock Control Replacement .

These tips should help you diagnose and repair that oven heating failure. If you need more assistance, 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 .

Q:

Why won't the control on my Kenmore electric range model 790.92681301 turn on?

A:

This type of failure points to a tripped breaker, outlet problem or wiring failure at the terminal block on the back of the range. The control is only lighting up when it gets voltage through the L2 leg supplied through the burners that energizes the L1 leg to the control when a burner is turned on. I recommend checking the breakers for the range first. You may find that one is tripped. If the breakers are okay, I recommend checking the voltage at the outlet for the range using the first image below as a guide. NOTE: You should only check this live outlet voltage is you are completely confident in your technical ability to safely measure it using a volt/ohm meter.

If the voltage at the outlet is okay, then I recommend unplugging the range and checking the outlet cord wiring on the terminal block behind the range. The second image below shows the proper wiring for the terminal block. If the L1 (Line 1) wire is loose or broken, this would cause the problem that you are describing. If the wires are okay, I recommend checking the continuity of the power cord.

If these tips don't help you resolve your problem, then you have an internal wiring failure in the range. I recommend calling a service technician to diagnose and repair that type of failure.
