Question and Answers


Oven cuts off during baking before it is finished 79071852300 Kenmore Gas range


Thank you for your question and I understand your concern.

If the electronic oven control/clock display goes blank, the electronic oven control/clock assembly and the clock overlay/face plate will need to be replaced. A short time fix until the electronic oven control can be replaced is to disconnect the power cord or flip the house circuit breaker off dedicated for the range wall outlet for 30 seconds or so and then reconnect the power cord or flip the  house circuit breaker back on.

Now; if the clock/oven control display is not going blank, I suspect the bake burner glow bar igniter is likely getting too weak and not pulling enough current/amperage to open the oven gas valve once the burner cycles off and then calls for heat again.  In order to access and see the bake burner glow bar igniter, the oven floor will need to be removed as well as the frame spreader. If you find the bake igniter glowing for 45 seconds or longer and the bake burner never ignites, the bake igniter will need to be replaced. To remove the oven floor, remove the two screws at the top back of the oven floor. Lift the rear of the oven floor up and slide the floor back until it clears the lip of the oven frame at the front and then lift the oven bottom out. Remove the oven door and oven racks before removing the oven bottom. On page 19 in the Use and Care Guide, it will have the instructions on how to remove and replace the oven door.
