Question and Answers

Q:

glow bar wont light stove model 790.71319704 79071319704 Kenmore Gas range

A:

Thank you for your question and I understand your concern.

When measuring across the two leads connected to the bake glow bar igniter, the voltage must measure 110-120 volts AC or the glow bar igniter will not glow. If the igniter does not glow bright red and pull enough current/amperage, the gas valve will not open.

Note; there is NOT any thermostats connected in the igniter circuit. The electronic oven control/clock assembly must close a relay in order to complete the 110-120 volt AC supply to the igniter. The click you hear is the bake relay closing but the relay could be bad and completing the 120AC voltage supply to the igniter.

There is an oven temperature sensor/temperature probe which monitors the oven cavity temperature through the electronic oven control/clock assembly. The oven temperature sensor probe should measure approximately 1100 Ohms of resistance at room temperature. If the oven temperature sensor was faulty (open or shorted) a fault code would display on the clock/electronic oven control display.

I added an image below of the wiring diagram. The yellow wire is the 110-120 voltage supply and the green represents the White (Neutral) circuit. If you were to measure 110-120 volts AC across the Yellow and White (green on image), the electronic oven control is likely Okay. If you do not measure 110-120 VAC across Yellow and the White wire on the control board when the control is set to bake, the electronic oven control board is faulty.

If you do measure 110-120 volts AC, at the control board but not across the leads connected to glow bar igniter, it could have faulty gas valve or loose wire connection in the igniter circuit.

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

Q:

OVEN WONT LIGHT

A:

Thank you for your question and I understand your concern.

The first thing to check is to see if the lever on the pressure regulator had been flipped to the OFF position. See image below.

If the glow bar igniter is glowing, the glow bar igniter is likely too weak to pull enough current (minimum of 2.9 amps), the oven gas valve will not open. See second image below.

Replace the igniter and your oven will most likely operate normally. The oven igniter is part #316489402 which can be ordered from Sears PartsDirect . NOTE: Disconnect the range from the power supply before removing and replacing the igniter.

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