This answer was rated:

My Kenmore Gas range will not always get up to temperature. Some days it works fine and other days it doesn't. It is a model number 790.75768002. Do you have any ideas? Thanks, Mark
Hello Mark
When you set the unit to bake watch the bake igniter how long does it glow for before gas comes out and lights?
Customer: replied 8 years ago.
I pressed the bake button and set the temp to 365. About a minute later I could see a red glow in the bottom of the oven in the cut outs on the left an right sides.
Ok did the igniter light after that min or did it just keep glowing?
Customer: replied 8 years ago.
I dont see flames. It is only glowing red still. It has been about 3 minutes now.
Ok great this is your issue the igniter is bad.The igniter is not drawing enough amps to open the gas valve very common issue on these gad ovens.there is two screws in the back that hold the lower panel down once the screws are out the base will lift up and out.then the igniter is held onto the bracket with two screws.
