Re: Kenmore gas stove Model 790
It could be that the sensor wire that controls the main gas valve is out of position. It should sit in the pilot light flame.
Look, and adjust if needed.
If it's ok, then you need a replacement main gas safety valve.
This should only be fitted by qualified personnel.
They do give up eventually after years of heating, and fail safe.

if you have no bake most likely you need to change out the ignitor,next time send the model number,if it's a stove with the burners on top open the utility draw and on the left or right side on the frame you'll see the model number
Hello,Please use the chart to determine which stove you have. You will have
to look at the model number. The first 3 numbers will be the series on
the chart. In most cases an F1 error would require replacement of the
electronic control. This part is commonly refered to as an EOC or ERC.
However this type of repair is usually reserved for repair specialists.
KENMORE Range/Stove/Oven Fault Codes – 362 Series (General Electric) F1 = Stuck Touch Pad Key - Replace Electronic Range Control (ERC).
KENMORE - 911 Series (General Electric/Roper) F0-F1-FF = Failed transistor in Electronic Range Control (ERC).
KENMORE Range/Stove/Oven Fault Codes- 665 Series (Whirlpool) F1-E0 EPROM Error - Electronic Range Control (ERC). F1-E1 EPROM Error - Electronic Range Control (ERC). F1-E2 U/L ERC Errors - Electronic Range Control (ERC). F1-E3 Fuel Type Fail
Kill power 30 seconds-Cancel-Start/Enter-5 seconds-Should see “E” for electric- “9” for gas-If code changes again-replace Electronic Range Control (ERC).
KENMORE - 790 Series Electronic Oven Control (Frigidaire) F1 = Shorted Touch Pad = Electronic Range Control (EOC) Internal check sum error. Runaway Temp = Replace Electronic Oven Control (EOC).
Kill power 30 seconds - if error returns - replace Electronic Oven Control (EOC).
There is a problem with the regulator or the thermal bulb you need to call a repairman in to replace it, if you have a gas smell it is allowing the piolet light to have gas comming out and not lighting this is DANGROUS do not put it off get it looked at right away. This can kill you.
Most likely a hot-surface ignitor has failed. If it doesn't consume enough current, the gas valve won't open. It's usually a fairly easy fix, once you gain access to the ignitor and have a new one to replace it with. Make sure you unplug the range...
