Question and Answers

Q:

Kenmore gas stove

A:

That range uses a glow bar ignition system. That system is described in this video: Gas Ignition Operation .

Since the igniter is glowing, this indicates that the thermostat and the safety gas valve are probably okay. In this situation, you probably have a weak igniter that is not heating properly even though it is glowing. Replacing that igniter will probably fix your oven burner ignition problem. You can order that igniter from this page: Oven Ignitor for Kenmore Range Model 790.71002100 . Be sure that you unplug the range before accessing and replacing internal components.

Note: There is one other possibility for this failure. The pressure regulator on the back of the range has an oven service shut-off valve tab. If the back of the range was recently accessed for cleaning or some other reason, then that tab may have been shifted to the "off" position. That component is shown in the image below (circled in red). The cooktop will still have a gas supply provided to it even if that tab is in the "off" position. Check that issue if necessary.

I hope that this information helps. If you need more assistance, reply with additional details.

Q:

My kenmore gas stove has no gas pressure

A:

Check the gas shut off valve for the range to make sure that it is fully open.

This gas range requires 5" of natural gas pressure or 11" of LP (Propane) gas pressure to operate properly. Here is a link for the installation guide that provides additional details about the gas supply: Installation Instructions .

Your symptoms seem to indicate a problem with gas flow or pressure in the supply line. I recommend that you have a gas technician or the gas company check the pressure in the supply line to the range.

If the gas supply to the range is okay then you could have a problem with the gas regulator. A service technician will normally need to replace this component and perform a proper leak check on the installation. Here is a link for the Sears Service website in case you need it: Sears Home Services .
