Question about Kenmore 79383 Dual Fuel (Electric and Gas) Kitchen Range

2 Answers

I have a Kenmore Elite slide in gas range about 4 years old. Model #79036789593 Ser. # NF 63212085. The left front burner will not light automatically. I get the clicking sound and can see a spark in the orifice, but no flame until I apply a match to the area. All of the other 3 burners light fine. Any ideas? Thanks

    The spark module is sparking. I can see a spark and a tiny blue flame. We have cleaned the burners thoroughly. When you turn dial to light, see the spark, hear the gas flow, but no ignition, you can blow on the burner to get a flame or use a match and it lights immediately. Where is the switch (#4) that you refer to and what does it look like?

    Thanks

    These suggested solutions have not solved the problem. Can somebody else offer another idea?

  • denniso_mall Sep 17, 2010

    Still won't light with the dial.

  • denniso_mall Sep 18, 2010

    Thanks. By "take the burner apart" do you mean the parts on top of the range or the parts below the top that are held in by two screws?

  • denniso_mall Sep 20, 2010

    The burner will now light but only when the burner directly behind it is on?

Take the burner apart and clean the burner. Sometimes something gets down where the ignitor will not arc in the right place.

Hi,

This problem could occur due to various reasons
1)spark module needs a constant replacement.If you haven't replace for a while its time for replacement.
2)Excessive dirt cause the burners to light hard.Clean the burners and the valve fully.
3)Use the hair dryer to dry the holes and clean it perfectly.
4)There will be a switch near the burner that needs to be replaced or wired properly.
5)Check for the burner valves.Give air pressure to clean it.


Since you say only one burner is causing problem dirt could be the main cause.Clean it and let it dry for some time.

post a comment for further assistance.
Thank you for using fixya have a nice day:-)

  • denniso_mall Sep 16, 2010

    If I remove the metal top and burner...is it the white plastic dome on the right? Where the igniter is located? I don't see at "switch"

  • Natarajan Ramasamy

    Igniter will look like this it will be inside near the side of the valve

    Natarajan Ramasamy Sep 16, 2010

    This is not exact picture model of it.

  • denniso_mall Sep 16, 2010

    To get to this igniter do I have to remove the top of the stove? I don't see any way to get at this.
    I re-cleaned this burner and I now am getting a "click" when I turn the burner to "lite", a blue flame around the white "valve" but the flame will not chase around the burner unless I blow on it or lite a match near it.

I have a kenmore stove model number 790,72403012 and 3 of the 4 burners are working. They all are getting a spark, but the front left won't fire up.


First, try to light the burner in question with a match. Just hold a match to the burner, then turn the gas on to low. If the burner doesn`t light, the problem is the gas supply to the burner. Next, lift the top cover and put the prop rod in the hole in the cover to support it. Hold a match to the left-front burner. Now, turn the control knob to "light". You should see the igniter spark and hear a snap. If this doesn`t happen, repeat this step with the left rear burner. If you hear the spark and snap.
If the igniter doesn`t work on the front left burner, but does on the rear left burner, the igniter does work. The problem is likely the control knob for the left front burner. The. Control knob includes the electrical switch the activates the igniter when you turn on that burner.

I have a sears kenmore elite slide in range model number 790.46613500 that has a f13 err can anyone help with this


Unfortunately, the F13 error indicates that the oven control has failed. First unplug your range and wait 30 seconds or more to reset the code.

If the error recurs, this part will need to be replaced. See http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/part-model/Kenmore-elite-Parts/Range-Parts/Model-79046613500/0583/0124160/R0507023/00001?blt=06&prst=0&shdMod=79046613500 for the parts list.

I'm not exactly sure if your unit needs part 97 or 97A.

I hope this helps.

Kenmore elite gas range clicking sound


If unplugging it for a couple minutes and plugging back in does not rectify then it sounds like a bad spark module or a shorted wire inside. All 4 should spark at the same time when any burner is used. (Does trying to light a burner make the other 2 spark too?)
