A:

That is the correct bake element for your range. I verified the part number in our system. You could have a bad control board or a wiring failure that is causing this failure. The control board in the console has the relays for the bake and broil elements. There are no fuses in that circuit. The wiring diagram in the first image below shows the circuit through the bake and broil elements traced in colors (likely wire colors). Since the stove top burners work, this indicates that you have proper electrical power to the range. Since the bake element was just replaced, we can assume that the bake element is okay. I recommend that you unplug the range and check the clock control board in the console. Remove that upper back panel to access the control board. The second image below shows that portion of the range. Check the wiring connections and look at the back of that control circuit board. If you see a burned spot on that board then it will need to be replaced. There is a chance that you may not see any visible damage to the board but it still may need to be replaced to fix this problem. You can check the wiring connections on the control board and the elements. Use that wiring diagram as a guide to check that wiring. If you find a wiring failure, then reconnecting the wiring may fix your problem without having to replace any more parts.

If you do need parts, you can order them from this page: Kenmore Range 790.95742991 Parts . Be sure that you unplug the range before accessing and replacing internal components.

These tips may help you resolve this oven problem in your range. If you need more assistance, reply with additional details.

Q:

How to get the door lock mechanism to unlock?

A:

You will need to locate the oven door light plunger (key#72) at the upper left hand corner of the oven frame. Push and hold it in while pressing the clear button. Hold the door light plunger in until the lock reaches the fully unlock position. The oven control board needs to see the oven door light switch closed before it will unlock.

If the unit fails to unlock, the range will need to be pulled away from the wall to access the lock motor (key#89) and rod (key#88). Disconnect the rod so that you can manually unlock the door mechanism. The door lock motor may have a bad monitor switch.

NOTE: Disconnect the power to the range before removing the rear panel.

I recommend calling a service technician to diagnose and repair your range.

Q:

I have a Kenmore model 790.95742991. When I try to set my oven to heat it displays off.

A:

The oven will not bake or broil unless the time of day has been set.

If your clock is displaying the time of day and you can't set it to bake, the electronic oven control is bad. The part number of the electronic oven control is 316101001 and the cost is around $180.00. The overlay will peel off the original clock and adhere to the new one. Heating the overlay with a hair dryer before removing makes it easier.
