A:

You could have a problem with the thermostat or the igniter that is causing this failure. A wiring failure or a bad safety gas valve on the oven burner could also cause this problem.

Pull the bottom panel of the oven and start a bake cycle. See if the igniter on the bake burner glows. If it does then the thermostat and safety gas valve should be okay. In this situation the igniter is your most likely failed component even though it is glowing. It is not likely heating to a point where the resistance of this component decreases to a point where enough current flows through the circuit to open the safety gas valve. An explanation of the ignition system for this range is shown in the image below. If you suspect that the igniter is bad based on this information, you may be able to fix the range by replacing the igniter (part WB2X9154). You can order this part from the Sears PartsDirect website.

If the igniter is not glowing, you can unplug the range and check the continuity through the safety gas valve, igniter and the thermostat to determine the cause of your failure. The igniter should measure about 40 ohms of resistance. The safety gas valve should measure about 1 ohm of resistance. The thermostat should measure near zero ohms of resistance when it is set to a temperature.

These tips should help you resolve your oven heating problem. If you need more help, submit additional details and we will try to assist you further.

If you do not feel confident repairing this problem yourself, then you can have it repaired at your home by a Sears technician. Here is a link for the website: Sears Home Services .
