Thank you for your inquiry on your Kenmore Range, Model: 790.96002601. From reviewing the details on your model, it appears that the part directly for your model hasn’t been substituted, so everything on the new surface element should be the same. I have provided a link to the element we have on file for your model for your convenience. I have also included a link to a couple of videos on similar model of ranges that use the same terminal block, which should be able to advice you on the correct wiring.

no heat 79096002601 Kenmore Electric range


Thanks for the inquiry and for being a valued member.

I am sorry to hear that the oven and surface units aren’t working properly. I know how frustrating that is to have happen.

The electronic control only requires 120vac to power up, but the range needs 220vac to heat. You could have an issue with the second leg of power supply.

Your symptoms suggest that you may have a blown house fuse or tripped breaker for the L2 leg of the power supply since no elements will heat. Check the house fuses or breakers for the range outlet. If you find no problems there, I recommend that you unplug the range and check the LINE 2 wiring connection on the terminal block of the range. 

If this connection is okay, then I recommend that you carefully measure the voltage at the range outlet.You should only conduct this live outlet voltage check using a volt/ohm meter if you are completely confident in your technical ability to safely execute it.

If the voltage at the outlet is okay, then you could have a problem with the outlet cord. Unplug the range and use a volt/ohm meter to check the continuity through the power cord. If the power cord is bad then it will need to be replaced.

If you would feel more confident have a Sears Home Service technician help assist with the diagnosis/repair, you can call 1-800-469-4663, or click here to be directed to the page to set up service.
