Question and Answers

Q:

oven rack 79098029801 Kenmore Elite Electric range

A:

Thank you for being Sears’ valued member and for contacting SearsPartsDirect.com with your question about the oven racks for your Kenmore Elite range model 79098029801. I am so sorry the racks keep falling when positioned in the middle of the oven. I know how frustrating that has to be when the rack falls while in the middle of cooking something. I will be happy to help you with this.

Your range uses three different oven racks. There is one style of oven rack for the upper oven and two styles of racks for the lower oven.  The racks do not work in all of the slots in the oven. The offset rack can only be used in the bottom of the lower oven. The upper oven needs oven ladder supports and mounting brackets. I have included the link below for you to view the owner’s manual online.

Owner’s Manual for Kenmore Elite Range 79098029801

Page 13 refers to the positioning of the oven rack. Your question stated that you replaced the racks with new ones, but did not indicate if you ordered each of the different racks. In case you haven’t, I have included the part numbers for you.

Upper oven rack – part number 318601905

Upper oven rack ladder- part number 318603810 (2 required)

Upper oven rack ladder mounting bracket – part number 318603915 (4 required)

Lower oven rack – part number 318262513 (oven uses 2 of this rack)

Lower oven offset rack – part number 318262514

I hope this answers your question. Thank you for choosing Sears, we appreciate your business.

A:

That lower oven has a thermal circuit breaker switch that will prevent any of those elements from heating. That component is circled in red on the wiring diagram shown in the first image. The second image shows a photograph of that component. You can unplug the range and locate that switch on the back of the lower oven cavity. You can press the red reset button and then see if that lower oven will heat properly. If the oven heats, be sure that you monitor it for overheating. If that lower oven overheats and trips that breaker, then you could have a stuck relay on the relay control board. If the oven heats properly, you could have had a single isolated situation where that component got too hot and tripped (such as during the self clean cycle where excessive spills were present in the oven).

These tips may help you resolve this problem with the lower oven in your range. 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 .
