Question and Answers


Oven burners do not heat up 79097432802 Kenmore Electric range


Thank you for choosing Sears Parts Direct. I will be more than happy to help with your range. Upon researching model 79097432802; you can test the temperature sensor for continuity using a multi meter.  To test the sensor you must unplug the range power cord and remove the sensor when the oven is not hot. The test should read anywhere from 1000-1100 ohms of resistance if you get a much different reading than the sensor may need to be replaced. If the sensor shows continuity then you may need to replace the control board. I have posted a link of the sensor to view the link click here.


I trust this information will help you, we appreciate your business thank for choosing Sears.

Kenmore oven won't preheat. 79097432802 Kenmore Electric range


Thanks for the inquiry and for using
Sorry to hear about the oven heating issue you are experiencing. I know how frustrating that is.
This type of issue would either be caused by the oven temperature probe sensor, part number 316490000, or the electronic control board, part number 316462878. 
You can test the sensor for resistance to see if it's the cuprit. At room temperature, the sensor should measure 1091 ohms, plus or minus 5. If the sensor checks out, the board needs replacement. If the sensor doesn't read within that range, the sensor is defective.
Hope this helps and thanks for using We appreciate your business.

Range 79097432802 79097432802 Kenmore Electric range


Hello glad to help.  Thank You for choosing Sears
I am sorry and do understand your frustration when there is problems with the oven.
Glad to help out.   Im  looking at your Kenmore Range model number 79097432802.
A failed relay on the control board could also prevent the bake and broil element from heating as they should.

 I recommend that you unplug the range and check the bake and broil element for continuity. You can remove the lower back panel to access the leads on the bake element. Remove one wire (with the range still unplugged) and measure the resistance through the bake element. You should measure between 10 and 30 ohms of resistance through the bake element. If you measure Ol -- open load or infinite resistance, then the bake element is bad and will need to be replaced. 

1.  Unplug the oven from the wall outlet.  
2.  Remove the racks from inside when you have the oven door opened.  
3.  The elements have a screw on each side and need to remove the screws and pull the wires from the
    elements out.
4.  Turn the dial on a multimeter to Rx1k.  Place one lead from the meter on the terminal at the end
    of the element, then place the other lead on the end of the other termial.  The needle on the
    multimeter should register between 19 and 115 ohms.  Replace the element if no reading registers
    on the meter.
5.  If the elements are good then take the meter and test both wires that you hook to the bake/broil

NOTE: You should not perform this live voltage check unless you are completely confident in your technical ability to safely execute it. 
Thank you for your understanding in this matter and I hope we can help you with your future questions and repairs.  Thank you for choosing Sears and using our

The oven reaches temperature such as 350 but once you place the food into the oven, the oven doesn't come back on to maintain the temperature.
