Question about Kitchen Ranges

Kenmore gas oven intermittently not lighting

Okay, my Kenmore gas range works fine about 85 percent of the time, but other times, the oven just won't light. When I turn it on, I will hear some clicking and then it just stops. It only does this rarely and when I had a service tech come out, of course it was working fine and I paid $60 for nothing. Also, when I cook something a long time (10 hourse) at a low temp (200-225), the oven will cut off sometime during the cooking and then won't come back on. Has anyone heard of such a problem? It's very frustrating, because it only seems to happen when I have people over (as in Thanksgiving) and I need to use the oven! The model number is 665.75022100.

    This is probably a stupid question, but the part number says 16A and the diagram just has two 16's, no A. I'm assuming it's the ignitor (16) on the right side of the diagram that's L-shaped, and not the straight one, right? Also, since obviously I know nothing about ovens (or gas), is it something really easy to change or should I get a service tech to do it?
    Thanks in advance,

Replace your oven ignitor. It has to draw enough current to open the gas valve. it is only drawing enough current 85 percent of the time so the other 15 percent it wont light the oven (Gas valve wont open) The part number for the ignitor is 8190618 and is 55 bucks at

I have a kenmore gas range md 79072909012 the oven lower burner has delayed ignition to the point that temperature is loss in oven and heavy gas smell in home....I am a licensed mechanical contractor in...

If its lighting with the panel and baffle removed, but now with them installed, but you get a heavy gas smell its likely the gas mixture is too rich (i.e. the covers are too tight, gas pressure pushes all air away from burner so only gas and very little air occupies the space above the burner and its too rich to light, oxygen starved.) Not an issue when the covers are removed, so it lights fine. Try adjusting the burne for less gas an more air, see what happens.

Kenmore Gas Range/Freestanding/ Electronic Ignition

I have an electronic ignition Kenmore Gas Range. The Model Number is 790.78573407.

Am getting the error code F93 in the oven control panel. The manual says the likely cause is "Maximum oven door lock time exceeded". When I plug the oven the "door lock light" flashes and then the "F93" error code flashes. Am not able to use the bake or broil.
