Question and Answers

Q:

kenmore range

A:

Check the gas service cut-off valve on the regulator as shown in the first image below. The oven will not get a supply of gas if that valve is shut off even though the stove top burners will work.

If you find no problems with that issue, you can check to see if the igniter is glowing when the oven is set in the bake mode. The second image shows the theory of operation for the oven burner ignition system on this range. If that igniter is glowing but the burner will not ignite, it is likely that you have a bad igniter. A technician would check the amp draw through the wire between the igniter and the safety gas valve to verify this failure. If you have a clamp-on ammeter and the proper safety equipment (insulated rubber electrical safety gloves and protective goggles) then you can check this issue yourself. You should measure over 3 amps through that wire when the igniter is glowing as described in that second image below. If that igniter is bad, you can order a new one from the Sears PartsDirect website. The part number is 5303935066. Here is a direct link for that component: Igniter . Be sure that you unplug the range and shut off the gas supply before accessing and replacing internal components.

If that igniter is not glowing, you could have a problem with the temperature sensor probe, a failed clock control board in the console, a bad igniter, a wiring failure in the ignition circuit or a failed safety gas valve.

If you need more help with this failure, reply with additional details and we will assist you further.

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 .

Q:

How to light the pilot light for the oven

A:

The oven burner in that range has a glow bar igniter. Here is a link for a brief video that explains the ignition process: Gas Ignition Operation . Check to see if the igniter is glowing when you set the oven in the bake mode. If that igniter is glowing but the burner won't light then you will probably need to replace that igniter.

You can order parts from this page: Kenmore Range Model 790.71002102 Parts . Be sure that you unplug the range before accessing internal components and replacing parts.

If that igniter is not glowing when the oven is set in the bake mode then you could have a failed igniter, a bad safety gas valve, a thermostat failure or a wiring failure in that ignition circuit. Reply with additional details if you need help diagnosing and repairing that type of failure.
