Question and Answers


When I use my new Kenmore gas oven (model # 79078530600) it only cooks well on bottom rack.Is there no heat from the top down except for broiling?


The broil burner will only operate during the broil cycle and not during the bake cycle. The lower rack should work as well as the upper rack when cooking meats unless you’re broiling then you would need to have the upper rack closer to the top.

Your old oven may have been cooking hotter than it should have. A quick way to check to see if your new oven is baking correctly would be to bake some of those refrigerated biscuits following the instructions on the can. Be sure to allow the oven to pre-heat before baking the biscuits. If the biscuits come out brown on top then the oven is likely operating correctly. If you feel the oven is not heating correctly then I recommend calling a service technician to check the operating temperatures.
