Check for a loose bulb or faulty door switch. Sometimes a bulb can fail and the filament can reconnect to work at a higher wattage before failing completely.

Kenmore Oven- The oven doesnt heat or light at all. If I sent it to 350 degrees; should i still smell gas?


I beleive this model has an electric igniter, You may have to change this they sometimes just wear out, or it's just simply your pilot light is out and you need to relight it, hope this helps.

Oven gets up to correct temperature but sometimes fails to maintain temperature. [does not re-light sometimes] sears kenmore model #362.75621300


sounds as if your bake igniotr has gone , or is going bad, if you remove the lower tra in oven cavity it will expose the "glow coil ignitor" after removing the power source you can unscrew and remove the ignitor form the burner bar and bring to local repair company for replacement ignitor, 50-90 bucks depending on which part it is, essy enought repair

New replacement thermostat needs calibrating on my Kenmore oven


There is no real way to calibrate the thermostat. Most ovens have the same problem. By lowering the setting slightly will help get a closer temperature. Sometimes similar thermostats are substituted and may not be exactly the same as the original that came with your oven. Hope my trying to answer your question was helpful, Thanks, Sea breeze

Kenmore gas stove Model 790


It could be that the sensor wire that controls the main gas valve is out of position. It should sit in the pilot light flame.
Look, and adjust if needed.
If it's ok, then you need a replacement main gas safety valve.
This should only be fitted by qualified personnel.
They do give up eventually after years of heating, and fail safe.
