Q:

Kenmore Range Model 79097453800 temp issue 79097453800 Kenmore Electric range

A:

Thank You for contacting ManageMyLife.com

I understand your frustration when you not able to use your oven. Based on the information you have provide it can have 2 possible cause. When you try to heat the oven do you see the bottom element glowing? If it doesn't close then the element needs to be replaced. If the element is glowing but the over just doesn't get hot enough then the problem is going to be the temperature probe. I have included a link to our PartsDirect page where you can purchase the part you need to complete your repair. Just click the blue link below to be taken to the page.

Thank you for your question and I understand your concern.

The first thing to do is to place the oven into a broil cycle and see if the broil element is working or not from a cold start.

The second thing to do is to place the oven into a bake cycle and see if the bake element is working or not. Both bake and broil elements are used during bake so it's important that both elements are working. If one of the oven elements is not working, it could have a faulty element, oven control/clock assembly or a loose or burn wire connection in the heating element circuits.

The bake element is hidden under the floor of the oven. The oven floor can be removed in order to access and remove if necessary. Remove the two screws at the back of the oven floor and lift the rear of the oven floor up and slide it back to remove. You can also access the bake and broil element leads from the rear of the range for testing. NOTE: Disconnect the power cord from the power source before removing the rear panel and disconnecting the wire connections from the element leads. The bake and broil element can be tested for continuity/resistance with an Ohm meter. If both oven elements measure resistance, the most likely failure is the electronic oven control/clock assembly. I added a link below showing how to test the oven elements.

I hope this is helpful. If I may be of further assistance as more details become available, please reply to this post.
