Periodically, front burner jets on my Kenmore Model 790,7250 become weak and just as unexpectedly resume at full blast. Why? How can the problem be solved?

Here are the model numbers on the Use/Care Guide that came with the stove; not sure which one my stove is: 790.7250, 7280, 7290.

hi,

sounds like you have the old-style coil elements on you stove.

your problem is the switch under the element, called the infinite switch. i would suggest to have a technician replace it. they usually charge for the labour but if you have never done it before, it's money well spent.

check the burner socket, it is likely that contact is being lost where the burner connects to the hardwired portion of the system (the socket). It is not unusual for the socket to "burn up" when there is a poor connection to the burner resulting in the burner being replaced and the new burner not working or working intermittently.

What is the boost on my sa.d filter for ?


Most booster pumps are hooked up to the floor jets that periodically blast water in different directions to move dirt around so it can be sucked into the filter. They are never hooked up to a filter, only one pump per filter.

Conversion of Kenmore Elite Gas Range 790.7523 from Natural gas to propane.


each burner has a natural gas jet or (orifice) as you pull them out, one atb a time. You should be able to color coordinate them at that point. the jets will be at the end of each gas line right before the burner. and each burner gets one. I haven't seen the model you are referring to. but the ones i have changed out in the past, usually the hole is the same size for all the burners no matter the size of the burners. I hope this helps. good luck with it!

Front right hand burner turns itself up to high has caused damage


it may just be as simple as changing the valve the knob is connected to. These parts use a few springs sometimes that may be too strong and/or too weak to hold it where you put it and can be replaced simply by removing it and replacing with a new one. (usually just a screw or 2 and a couple hoses)

Sears Kenmore gas stove, the front left and the left and right rear burners turn on when the knob is turned to the lite position. The right front burner doesn't turn on when put lite position. N


If there is no clicking sound like you hear when you turn on the other burners than I'm going to say that either the electrode is bad or the spark switch, which is what you turn to turn on the burner to begin with. Both parts are cheap so it may be a good maintenance thing to change all of the burners. Make sure you have your model and go to www.repairclinic.com and order both parts, and if you don't need one send it back for a full refund even if you installed it. good luck

I have kenmore gas oven ignitor glows but will not light


Hello there:
It doesn't bake dot_lineone.gif Bake igniter
When the bake igniter becomes weak or burns out, your oven would not bake. The bake igniter is usually mounted on the oven burner. It's about 1 inch by 4-8 inches (depending on the model), and comes in round or flat styles. If you don't see the igniter glow at all, it's probably burned out. Replace the igniter if found defective. Note: one of the exceptions could be that your oven is set to automatic mode instead of manual. If this is the case, set your oven to manual mode and check again.

If the bake igniter glows red and not bright yellow or white, it is probably because it is too weak. When this happens, the safety valve would not let the gas out into the oven burner. A weak igniter must be replaced.

A faulty igniter is probably the most common cause, however there are others:

-- defective thermostat
-- defective selector switch
-- defective gas safety valve

If you are certain the igniter is ok, it might be a good idea to call a professional appliance technician.

Dryer works but no heat


Many times when the gas solenoids get weak the gas will light for a very short time and not light again. One coil has 3 connections and is used to make the ig-niter glow hot and turn the gas valve on too. If it becomes weak over time it just does not have the strength to hold the gas valve open. Go to my page below and enter the model number listed inside the door frame. If you cannot find the part here go to sears parts and see if you can locate a kit of 2 solenoids. My site also offers free help.(click on link below)

Loss of pressure on Kenmore 16322


I can tell you EXACTLY what is wrong. Remove the tank and open all valves to the grill. Reconnect the tank and turn it on just slightly. Relight the grill.
Ther is a safety device in the tank that needs to be reset. The only way to do it is removing the tank.

Amana oven won't turn on gas flame


Sounds like the oven ignitor has become too weak and needs replaced. When power is applied to an ignitor it builds up resistance in order for the gas valve to open and let gas flow to the burner. When they become weak this will not happen. If you notice a whiteish color on the ignitor or it doesn't have a strong full glow that is a sign of it going bad.
