Question about Kenmore 78812 / 78814 / 78819 Gas Kitchen Range

Heat coming out

I have a new kenmore gas range/oven. When I turn the oven on, a lot (and I mean a lot) of heat comes out of the top of the unit, between the rear stove burners and the controls for the oven. It seems like too much heat to be coming out. Is this of concern or is it normal?

Hello,

The reason the igniter would come on yet not let the gas flow is because the IGNITER IS WEAK and not drawing the proper power to open the gas valve. Replace the igniter nad the oven will work without having to tap on the valve

Kenmore oven blows hot air out at top


The hot air is supposed to come out so you can heat other things. If the oven is loosing heat, try to see if vent has flap, or test the temp sensor

Oven pilot light won't light


Part of the problem was my own ignorance about this particular Kenmore gas oven. It doesn't even have a pilot light. Instead, there is an electric heating element close to the burner which gets so hot that it ignites the gas. It seems that the heating element also doubles as a temperature sensor, so that it opens the gas valve only when the heating element is hot enough to ignite the gas. This heating element, called the "ignitor", no longer gets hot in my oven even though there is 120VAC applied to it when the oven knob is turned on. Therefore, the ignitor is defective. I ordered a new one on-line from "Appliance Parts of America" for $31.50 plus shipping, and this should fix the problem. If it does NOT, I'll add to this post.

Kenmore gas range--oven won't come on


My oven will not work. After pressing the desired temp on the oven, the preheat light and oven light comes on. After about 15 minutes, the oven is slightly warm and maybe an hour later the oven may or may not heat to desired temp. Kenmore gas range model #790.72851301.

Ge profile gas range


  What do you mean by the surface burners coming on.  This is a gas range,  correct?  Do you mean that the flame comes on?  Or does the spark come on and they don't light? 
  Does the oven come on?
