Question and Answers

Q:

GAS RANGE790.71422400, ONE BURNER WILL NOT LIGHT UNLESS ANOTHER IS LITE 79071422400 Kenmore Gas range

A:

Thank you for your question and I understand your concern.

If that specific electrode is not sparking when you turn the burner valve to light for that burner, I suspect it could have faulty spark igniter switch located on that burner valve or it could have disconnected wire on that igniter switch.

You may be able to see if both wires are connected to spark igniter switch by removing the burner knob. If not, the top will need to be taken off and possibly the manifold cover. The manifold cover is the panel that covers the burner valves. See images below. Disconnect the power cord from the power source before servicing.

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

Q:

kenmore cooktop oven model number 79071422400 ser numbervf50223830 oven portion not working

A:

Thank you for your question and I understand your concern.

Even though the igniter is glowing bright red, it's not likely pulling enough current/amperage to open the gas valve. This is why the oven gas valve will open when tapped on. Replace the oven igniter and it will most likely ignite and operate normally.

The glow bar igniter must pull a minimum of 2.9 amps. Don't assume the igniter is okay just because it is glowing brightly.

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