I have a Kenmore gas stove in my house. The model # is 790.71011200 and the serial # is VFZ21536060. I had gas delivered recently and a few weeks later the stove wouldn't heat up to the temp I set it on. I turned the dial to 400 degrees for 20 mins and it only made it to 250. I can see the flame under the pan at the bottom of the stove, so I am not sure what is wrong. All the top burners still work.

Oven temperatures that wont go to set temperature can often be calibrated but I see the difference here is rather large. The expert will review this model and respond. Is this a gas or propane fueled stove? If you decide to schedule a qualified technician to help, I attached the link to Sears Home Services below. I hope this helps if needed.
