It may be a wire fried or came loose, and is touching metal. if an exposed wire is touching metal, you wont be able to reset the breaker. pull the range out, and remove the back, and if necessary, lift the top and check the wires to the burners also. it should be easy to spot the wire that's causing the problem from there. let me know if you have further questions, shane

It could possibly be you are not getting 240 volts to the range. The top igniter may be getting a current back through the other side of the 240 circuit and that is why it works when the oven is turned on but the oven will not be getting power to heat. Have the 240 circuit checked or make sure the circuit breakers are reset correctly.

My kenmore elite stove model#790 the oven and broiler do not heat up but the fan runs


Since none of the burners or elements will heat, I recommend that you shut off the house circuit breakers for the range. Your symptoms point to a voltage supply problem. The range should have a double breaker (the two circuit breakers are probably connected together with a metal clip). The range clock control will light up if only one leg (L1) of that power supply is provided to the range. If the second leg of power (L2) is missing, then none of the burners or oven elements will heat. You could have a problem with the circuit breakers or the wiring on the terminal block at the back of the range. With the breakers shut off , I recommend that you pull the range out and check the wiring on that terminal block. Based on your description, you may find a loose connection or burnt wiring in that area. The image below shows wiring information for the terminal block and the junction box for the range. This information should help you check that issue. If you can find a wiring failure and restore a proper voltage supply to the range, then the stove top burners and oven elements should heat properly.If you find no problems with the wiring, then you could have a bad circuit breaker or a problem with the house voltage supply for the range. An electrician will normally need to diagnose and repair that type of failure. I hope that this information helps. If you need more assistance, reply with additional details. If you need parts, you can order them from the Sears PartsDirect website.If you get to a point where you need to have a service technician repair this failure, you can schedule service through this link: Sears Home Services .

My stove poped and went off. I tripped the breaker and now the oven will not heat. Neither the top or bottom unit.


First I would look at the heating element in the oven and make sure it is all in one piece. there are usually one on the bottom and one on top. sometimes they will burn apart and short out to stove. if they look ok then do a quick check, I would turn off all knob on the stove top and oven. then try to reset the breaker. hopefully it resets ok. then turn on one at a time and see which burner or oven element has a short. when you find the bad burner or stove element it will trip the breaker again.
hope this helps

None of the coils will heat up on top and the oven wont heat. the panel is dark. When I turn a eye on the clock wil flash.


hey that sounds like a burnt wiring connection where the house wiring connects to the range,sometimes its hard wired to the range and sometimes their is a outlet and a range cord,when you turn on burner power is back feeding to the clock. TURN OFF CIRCUIT BREAKER TO RANGE pull range out from wall and check the connection from house wiring.

Oven elements do not heat?


The oven bake element has burnt out and needs replacing. Shut the power off to the range. Remove the element mounting screws located inside the oven above or below each end of the element. Carefully slide the element out, disconnect electrical wiring. Install new element.
