A:

That's great that you are wanting to know more about your appliance before you start fixing it. I did locate a similar question to yours about the oven not heating. It gives some general information but i hope that it helps you in figuring out what can be the possible issue. http://www.managemylife.com/mmh/questions/124197-oven-heating-1

Hi Celene, I noticed the problem description in the question 124197 refers to the ignitor not firing. My stove uses an old fasion pilot light. I am leaning towards the valve or the control knob as my problem. Unfortunately for me, there does not appear to be a manual for this model, so I will have to make a choice. A. Try to find a repair person that knows this particular product or B. shotgun a fistfull of parts and hope I get lucky. Not looking too good.

The pilot in your oven heats the bulb of a flame switch that interrupts the flow of electricity to the oven gas valve if it is not heated. In order for the flame switch to close, the bulb in the pilot flame has to be cherry red.

Be sure the pilot is heating the bulb cherry red first. If the pilot is not heating properly you can take it out of the range and clean the small orifice inside it that controls the size of the flame.

If you turn the thermostat off and measure the voltage across the 2 terminals you should read 110-120 volts ac. When you turn the thermostat on the voltage should drop to 0. If the voltage does not drop, the contacts inside the thermostat are not closing.

Most of the parts for the range are no longer available. You might consider going to www.sears.com/?MML=MMLxexpertxmerch and shopping for a new range.

Jimmy K, Thanks for the response. The pilot light is working well and the bulb is "cherry red". I went ahead and made sure it was nice and clean anyway, still looks good. There are two leads on the top of the valve that measure zero volts with the control knob off. I turned on the control knob and was able to measure 120 volts. So, although I got the opposite results from your note, while measuring the voltage, it tells me that the electrical part is working. I belive I have located a valve (expensive bugger) and have ordered it.

The answer I sent you wasn't as clear as it could have been. I apologize. I am assuming you read 120 volts across the 2 terminals on the oven gas valve. If this is the case and you have ordered the oven gas valve, you should be fine. Good luck.

Thanks for the follow up. I was able to find a valve, so now I wait. Cheers!
