Question about Kenmore Ovens
I have a Kenmore Elite Double Electric Built-In Oven Models 790.4817*, 790.4818*,790.4819* suddenly tonight as I was baking supper and thought I should be about done I checked the food and the oven was off. I again set the temp to 350 convection bake and after 1 minutes it shuts off-including the timer. I tried the other oven and the same thing happens. It seems to work fine on regular bake just not convection bake.

DO you have a model number for that. I'm almost sure it's a thermal fuse in the back of the oven. Usually they go out during or after cleaning but that would shut down both elements. If you have the model (usually by the inside door look all over and up in the cavity) Then if you go to this link
It will show you a breakdown of the oven and where it is. If you give me the model I'll show you what I'm talking about. Good luck.
P.S. if it the fuse it's a cheap fix, little hard to get in back of the oven but cheap!

Very rare, in 35 years I replace maybe 2 to 5 a year out of 1500 to 2000 repairs a year on all major appliances. Make sure you replace it with the exact glass from the manufacturer, usuing your model number. Do not replace with glass from a glass shop.

it could be the oven temp sensor rod located near the top of the inside of the oven,or possibly the bake element has a hot spot on the element and can no longer pass enough current thru this spot to correctly heat to your settings a hot spot on the element will look discolored in this area
