They pretty much work independently of each other. I love to bake so I did some quick research to find what other expert technicians might have written about this in the past. I found one response from a technician I really respect. Review his answer (it's on your particular model number) while waiting for your expert response. I hope this helps you and have a nice day.

Thank you for your question and I understand your concern.

Based on your symptom and details I would suspect a faulty electronic oven control/clock assembly.

Before replacing the electronic oven control (EOC) make a visual inspection of the bake and broil elements. If one of the two elements happened to burn out and short, it can cause the electronic oven control to fail. So, make sure that the bake and broil elements do no show any signs of cracks or blister before installing a new electronic oven control/clock assembly. Note: Disconnect the power cord from the range before inspecting the oven elements and before removing the panel from behind the control panel and replacing the oven control. The electronic oven control #316455420 for Kenmore range model 790.91072602 can be ordered from Sears Parts Direct.

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 .
