The ignitor is probably weak and not relighting when it needs to. Replace the ignitor.

My gas oven isn't heating up properly, is there


We were able to trouble-shoot our gas oven before calling the repair man. Our oven reached temperature but did not reheat when it cooled down. Our troubleshooting included taking out the storage drawer and looking at the underside of the oven near the valve.

First check if you can see the flame when the oven is on.

Use an oven thermometer in the oven to test if the oven gets to the desired temperature first. Does it get close to the desired temperature and stay near there for your entire bake time? If it does, you may need to adjust the thermostat setting. (This should be in your manual. Many Frigidaire manuals are available from their support site: http://www.frigidaire.com/Customer-Support/Videos--Manuals/ . )

Since our oven was reaching the set temperature and then not reheating, we had one person crawl under the oven and tap on the regulator when the oven needed to reheat. (We could see the ignitor spark.)

If the oven isn't heating at all, then the thermostat, the gas valve, controller or ignitor are suspects. Can you see the spark of the ignitor? Then it's probably not the issue. Similarly if you see the flame coming on several times during the bake cycle, it's not likely to be the valve. If you have a multimeter, you may be able to check the thermostat and controller for any breaks in the wire.

In our case, since the valve was failing, we ended up replacing the 10-year old range. (We looked at the price of a new range versus part and labor cost for the replacement. The part and labor was more than 50% of a new range.)

I hope this helps.

I have a Sears Kenmore Elite 790 hooked up to propane .. is it ok to have it hooked up to propane or is this over for natural gas only?


Kenmore Gas ranges can be used with Natural gas or Lp. They come from the factory set up for Natural gas so if you want to use Lp it needs to be converted by you or your gas company. There are several adjustments that have to be made and some ranges require orifices to be changed. Your installation manual tells how to convert it but if you're not sure about doing it you would be better off the call the gas man.

Ignitor for oven comes on but gas release cuilds up before oven ignites causing a voom


I have a Kenmore Gas Range, model 72503. #1 problem-the orficies were not installed properly; #2 problem-when I turn the top burners on, gas comes out before the ignitor comes on. I called Sears, they sent someone who said that the burners can't be adjusted. I feel this is very dangerous. This is a new 2011 model, made for Sears by Frigidaire. Who should I contact about this problem. Sears say it is out of their hands. Help!

I have a Kenmore gas built in oven, model number 790.30179400. It's 5 years old. I just used the oven and it wouldn't turn off. It seemed to be hotter than the temperature I had it on. I have a fuse box in...


Usually F11 is a comunication error and the initial fix is to remove all power for 30 seconds then try it again.

The oven element that did not turn off is a sticking relay on the Electronic Range Control (ERC) board /clock timer that did not open the relay electrical contacts when the power was removed from the relay coil. Or there was an on the printed circuit board (PCB) fault in the ERC that allowed power to remain on the relay coil until you removed power by pulling the fuse.

The most probable cause below with the cheapest source being Sears Direct in 2nd link.

Kenmore oven error code f10


on that type of range F10 indicates a problem within the electronic control, but it could possible be caused by a faulty temperature sensor.

I would recommend service from a technician
