Question about Kenmore 79012 / 79014 / 79019 Gas Kitchen Range

Open Question

My kenmore elite gas range model 790.79013102...the oven doesn't always stay not for cooking purposes. Sometimes it takes a very long time (15 minutes) to preheat. Sometimes it will cook just fine i.e. when baking cookies, but when we put the 3rd or 4th batch in the oven it fails to stay heated to desired temperature.

SOURCE: Preheat taking long time

If your oven has the hidden bake element then it is probably working properly. A standard oven with an exposed bake element will usually take about 12-15 minutes to preheat. The hidden element models take a little longer but they usually heat a little more evenly.
Post back if you have any more questions.

some of the newer ranges only pre-heat using one element. this gives them a better energy saving rating

SOURCE: Oven lights ,but doesn't heat to preset temperature

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. There is a video at http://appliancehelponline.com/gasoventroubleshootvideo.html this will walk you thru the correct procedure for performing this test. 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.

For replacement parts - head on over to PartSelect.com or RepairClinic.com and enter in your full model number for a full parts listing.
I recommend both sites because ...


FixYa has no affiliation with either site - I have been using and recommending them for years - trouble free.

PartSelect has a great schematic database for locating the part on your unit and great "testimonials" for each part that often times includes HOW-TO information.
RepairClinic has pictures of each part they sell and also a great how-to and troubleshooting for basic repairs.


If your unit has never been serviced - there should still be an original service manual enclosed in plastic taped to the inside of the shell.
In the service manual are Error codes, maintenance procedures, and troubleshooting steps you can follow.


Anything too complicated or beyond your scope should be handled by a professional.

If you think you want to tackle the repair - and have gotten stuck on a step - reply to your question and I will be glad to help you out.





Thanks for using FixYa - a 4 THUMBS rating is appreciated for answering your FREE question.

Kenmore oven take a long time to heat up, but bakes just fine once it reaches temperature. Is there anything I can do to speed up the heating process?


Start earlier?
>> check all elements for current,
check seals
check temperature calibration (allowed to be 15% ie 180 can be 153 or 207 Celsius!) no wonder Margs' scones cook faster at her house :-)

My kenmore elite grill has a ceramic cooking grid. it is 1 yr old.recently a problem developed. the ceramic grid lights as usual, but does not stay lit.once i let go of the knob the burner goes out. thanks...


check thermo coupling., its purpose is to keep heat at flame area-helps keep flame lit,like a pilot light... clean it with a finger nail file LIGHTLY- or use sand paper LIGHTLY, just to clean surface..

Oven slow to ignite and come to temperature.


Change the igniter.

As they age, they often times will no longer draw enough amperage to allow the gas safety valve to open. Increasing the line voltage would help, but that's a little impractical.

This will be why the oven acts up. The broiler doesn't rely as much on this as the bake part does. Replace this and it should fix your problem.

Kenmore gas oven intermittently not lighting


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 sears.com
