Question about Ovens
I have a Kenmore model 79071363701 gas oven. The oven will no longer come up to temperature. The burner ignites fine and burns for several minutes, then shuts off (I can hear an audible click when it does). It then repeats this cycle indefinitely. The "preheat" light never shuts off. I have already tried replacing the igniter.
On any gas appliance there is a high and a low limit temp stat which could be indipendant or on the gas valve it's self, that is faulty.
When the oven reaches temp, it cuts out. sounds like faulty over heat stat.

the ignitor should glow bright orange.it sounds like you have a weak ignitor but if the flame lites within 20 to 30 seconds it sounds like it's ok,it could be braking down though when it gets hot,it doesn't matter if it glows,it has to be putting out 3.2 amps,if you have an amp meter with a clamp on it you can read out the amps,if the broiler works ok i would change out the ignitor,then follow the tube down to the bottom and stick a paper clip in the orifice hole where the gas comes out and make sure that's clear,also there's a shutter on the tube to adjust the air flow,see if it's closed,it's usually almost wide open,check the tube to make sure the ignitor didn't burn a hole through it.i've found tubes with holes in them from a lazy ignitor,most of the time if there's a problem it will be the ignitor

The "F5" fault code means a loss of the relay drive circuit. This can be caused by a faulty oven control, oven sensor circuit, lock motor circuit or loose/corroded connections. See image below. You should be able to access the oven control by raising the top and removing the cover from behind the console. The oven temperature sensor connection can likely be check by removing the oven temperature sensor from inside the oven cavity. NOTE: Disconnect the power supply from the range before raising the top and removing the console cover.

The problem is usually the igniter not reaching the correct amp draw .When the igniter does not reach the correct amp draw it may allow the gas valve to partially open or not open at all. The igniters are inexpensive and easy to replace. This video will walk you thru the correct procedure for testing an oven igniter. It may be a different model but the testing will be the same.You can also enter your model # for diagrams and illustrations of your specific model. Not all models are available. All parts come with installation instructions.
