It sounds like the element shorted out and needs replacement. I would not continue to use the oven, although it should be ok to use the stove.

It's difficult to say what a new element plus installation will be, but you can call around and get estimates. Have the model number, type and serial number available if possible before you call.

My Kenmore #79047153401 baking function is not working yet the broiler is functional as well as the warming drawer.


i looked up your model number and it comes up as a duel fuel,gas on top and electric in the stove,i would first unplug it and read out the bake element,check it for continuity,you have to pull off at least one of the wires,set the meter to say 20k,touch the leads together and make sure your meter reads it,then touch the meter leads to both sides of the element,if it stays on 1 the element is bad,if you get any other reading other than 1 then the element is good.if it's good now you have to check to see if you're getting 240 volts to the element,this will be easier if you pull out the stove and remove the back panel and you can check it this way because you have to do this with power going to the stove,if you are getting 240 volts to the element you could have a broken wire or a bad board but most likely it will be the element.also if i'm wrong and this has an ignitor check that out with a meter but like i say this comes up with electric in the stove and gas on top.the bake element part number is 318255401 and it's around 95 dollars,this is on the sears site,hope this helps,http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/part-model/Kenmore-elite-Parts/Range-Parts/Model-79047153401/0583/0122008/R0309147/00003?blt=06&prst=0&shdMod=79047153401 copy and paste for the sears parts site.

I have a Kenmore 790.94479801 electric range. While using the Bake function, I noticed that the broiler element was on and the oven had gotten very hot. I hit the Stop button and noticed a small puff of...


When the broil function is off, check for continuity between the broiler relay output terminals. If there is no continuity, check for an external short. If there is continuity when the broiler is supposed to be off, you need to replace or repair the board.You can get your old board repaired at appliancetimers.com.

My wife heard a loud pop while baking, the oven will no longer bake, the stove top still works so does the clock ect. Elements are fine just don't warm up. I have a kenmore 790, is there a internal fuse...


Check the baking element, sometimes these will make a popping sound if they burn into. Also a lot of your components are behind the knob/clock area.

We have a GE gas oven/stove top and the stove top is lighting as well as the broiler but we can not get the oven to heat up. What do you suggest we try?


i just moved and our stove in the new place doesnt bake things right. it seems that the top coil doesnt come on. its very difficult to bake anything. seems to come up to temp for pre heating, but only the bottom coil comes on. If you put it on broil, then the top coil gets hot. that works fine. tired of burning pizzas and biscuits. can anyone help with a cheap fix? dont have alot of cash.

Oven stopped working.top works fine.noticed chard insulation in back of stove.burnt wire seems to be connected to electrode in oven. any ideas?


Hi, Check voltage or continuity on the bake element. If you test voltage, there should be 240V to the element. If you check continuity, unplug the range and test the element to see if it has an open circuit. In either case, you should replace the wire connectors if they ae burnt.

I hope this helps you. Please let me know if I can assist you further.

Kenmore oven not working


Hi, You need to unplug the stove, take the back panel off and check continuity on the bake element or after the back panel is removed, plug the oven back in, and turn oven to bake. You should get 240Volts to the two terminals on the bake element. If you have 240 Volts, the element is bad and needs replaced. I can ship you the new element.

Hope this helps

Oven will not heat past 300 degrees (on bake command)


Remove the bottom plate on the stove which is likely help in place by a couple of bolts at the back. Remove the plate & inspect the bake element underneath. It is probably melted or broken in some area. It it does need replacing unplug the stove from the wall & remove one of the back panels at the back of the stove which access the wiring at this height on the stove. Disconnect the element.
Installation of new element is the same but in reverse.
Good luck!
