Where is a gas fuse in a Kenmore oven?


Gas ovens don't have a fuse. Won't the oven light?

Pilot Light won't stay lit?

We get asked this question many times.

If you light your pilot light, hold in the button and then when you release it and the pilot light goes out, generally you need a new thermocouple. Gas repairs can only be undertaken by a qualified gas technician so you can't do this job yourself.

The thermocouple is a safety device that recognises that the pilot has a good flame and is enough to ignite the main burners. The thermocouple open that valve to the burner.

In limited circumstances the thermocouple doesn't need replacing, either the shield that aims the flame to the thermocouple has become dislodged, or the pilot jet is a little blocked by debris. Either way, having the appliance serviced by a qualified gas fitter is the way to go. I am sure you will have seen news stories about explosions caused by gas leaks and faulty appliances.

I have a kenmore oven modle 790 78511403. I need to know if it has a pilot light. Im getting ready to set off bug bombs and the instructions say to make sure there are no open flames or pilot light.


Yes, turn the gas off to the stove and wait a few minutes for the pilot light to go out. Also, you might want to unplug the fridge as it can produce a spark when it kicks on and off.

Our Kenmore oven has stopped working. We were thinking it had something to do with the pilot light going out, since we do smell gas when we turn the oven on. Can you tell us where the pilot light might be?...

Kenmore gas oven won't light. The pilot light is on but no gas. What do I do?


Put a torch on the probe. If the flame comes on them the thermocouple is weak.If nothing at all replace the safety valve.That is if you have a standing pilot. If you pilot is an electric one then it should be so bright it is hard to look at but if it is dim orange it is weak.

Pilot light


When you smell gas...is it all the time? If so, this is dangerous. If it only happens when you're trying to start the oven, no problem. Push the red button and hold it while lighting the pilot. Hold for 30 REAL seconds more. Release. The pilot should stay lit. If not, get a service tech.
