Kenmore Gas Oven not working

I have a Kenmore Gas Range Model #79075721991 I would say it is at least 15 years old? It came with the house when we bought it. The burners lite with no porblem, but the oven will not not turn on? Could it be a Pilot out? Not sure what kind of Ignition it has? Any help would be greatly appreciated. I am hoping I do not need to replace the whole thing.

Thanks!
Michelle

    Thank you for your quick response! So, do I just go under with a match and hope it lights? I did remove the warming tray and there is some sort of thing connected to the gas line. I get a little nervous around gas.

    Thanks

IT POSSIBLY DOES IF SO IT WOULD BE UNDER TH BOTTOM PAN USUALLY IN THE BOTTOM OF THE OVEN , YOU WILL NEED TO LIGHT IT WITH A MATCH (AFIREPLACE MATCH WORKS BEST ) LET BURN FOR A FEW MINUTES TO MAKE SURE IT GOING TO STAY LIT BEFORE YOU TRY THE OVEN .

I turn on the stove and about a minute later it shakes the side of the house and lights. Heats well and works fine after doing this. It's a kenmore and about thirteen years old. What could be happening.


There could be expansion issues with the oven. When the oven heats up the sides or bottom could be flexing causing this. If it is a gas range with an oven igniter it could be the igniter is getting weak and the gas is not lighting right away and causes a small explosion when it does light. If it has an igniter look to see how bright it is. If it is orange in color it is probably the problem. They should glow a bright yellow. If the igniter has never been changed it could be the problem. Hope this helps.

Bottom of kenmore oven pitted


Baked on debris causes this. The spots are from food sitting there without being cleaned.

Kenmore gas Range -- Control Panel not working


Hi. your assessment is correct. when you have normal operations with the stove top and the control panel is blank or non operational, this will confirm either a wiring harness issue or a dead control circuit board. The wiring harness can sometimes become lose or the connectors can become corroded but, in this issue, i am sure its the ECB(electroninc control board). In this case, you will have to replace the board it self.

Please rate and god bless:)

My oven is a kenmore gas single, self cleaning oven about 8 years old. the oven will not light. the top of the stove is fine.


Open the oven door and take the bottom panel off. you will be able to see it the hot surface ignitor starts to glow or not. Now turn the oven on and see if the hot surface gets red hot it not that is the problem. Should be able to get the part at a heating and air parts house or a appliance parts house. let me know what you find out. ken

Kenmore Model #790 - smooth top range


Probably not. It sounds like your broil element burned out. This just happens sometimes. If it is this , it will have visible chunks missing. Yes, It shorted with enough force to blow the main fuse. Unplug it as sometimes it can still be live and sparking when power is restored. Element is fairly cheap usually less than $50 and you can fix it yourself.
