Kenmore 790 Oven Door will not close tight enough

I have a Kenmore model no. 790.96212400 SN: VF44033128.

Does anyone know if the hinge problem on this range is covered by any recalls or such?

Thanks in advance...

SOURCE: Kenmore Elite 790 Range

I can't believe I found this today. Today, my Elite 790 inner coil also stopped working! A little too coincidental.

When I turn on the burner, I can hear like a relay click on, but it does not heat. The middle and outer burners are fine.

if your locking it to make the light goes off it sounds more like the light switch on the oven needs to be replaced

SOURCE: Kenmore Oven Door Lock Stuck Out

We had this same problem. We found that pushing the censor button/switch on the upper left rim of the oven's inside moved the lock and made it capable to unlock, or purchase a pizza pizzaz.

SOURCE: I have a Kenmore Elite Gas Range. #790 series.

Possibly a malfunctioning electric gas valve. The electronics may be sending the message to open that valve, however it could be stuck, clogged or, worse, the electric servo that manipulates it could be fried (no pun intended).
Do you have your exact model #? {Not serial} I can research where to troubleshoot a valve problem or an electronics issue.

My Wolrd Pool Double Oven Door will not close all


same problem, I tried to adjust the level and tip the oven back, but that didn't work either.
Two options exist, change the hinges, or close the door with a hammer handle between the door and oven. Place the handle down low by hinge, then push the door closed very firmly to pull the hinge outward a bit.

Place a hammer handle between the door and the frame at the hinge location.
Carefully apply pressure on the door to push the door closed.
This will often re-set range door hinges.

Ovendoor not closing for tight seal...


You should feel the door pull closed when you as you lift it and get near the closed position.

There is some spring linkage associated with the hinge pins at the bottom sides of the oven.

I cannot find the oven you indicated, but I did find exploded views and parts list of the topic post oven on the SearsPartsDirect website.
