Question and Answers

Q:

Kenmore Range model #79096122406 not heating

A:

This type of failure is normally caused by a voltage supply problem or a wiring failure. I recommend that you check the house circuit breakers for the range. Some homes have fuses instead of breakers. If the breaker for the L2 leg of power for the range is tripped or that fuse is blown, then the clock control will work but the surface burners and oven elements will not heat. If your house has circuit breakers, I recommend that you shut off the circuit breakers for the range and then turn them back on.

If this does not help, I recommend that you unplug the range and check the wiring on for the outlet cord on the terminal block at the back of the range. Here is a link for the installation guide that shows the proper wiring for that outlet cord: Installation Instructions .

If you find no problems with the wiring on that terminal block, I recommend that you check the continuity of the wiring through that outlet cord. If you need help with that test, reply with additional details and we will assist you further.

If the outlet cord is okay, then you will probably need to have an electrician or technician check the outlet for proper voltage. Reply to this thread if you have a volt/ohm meter and you are willing to complete that test yourself. Checking the live voltage at the outlet is dangerous if it is not done properly. A service technician is normally needed to perform that check. Here is a link for the Sears Service website in case you need it: Sears Home Services .

I hope that this information helps. Let us know what you find if possible and don't hesitate to reply with additional details if we can assist you further.
