Thank you for your question. I should be able to help you replace the ignitor in the oven. You may not have to remove the back panel of the range but you do need to unplug the range first. Then follow the steps below.

  1. Open the door a little bit. The door should stay. Then lift the door off the hinges and put it aside. This makes it easier to work around.
  2. Remove the bottom drawer of the range and put it aside.
  3. Remove the bottom (floor) of the oven. There should be two along the back holding it in. then put it out of the way.
  4. Remove the flame spreader from the top of the burner. Once the spreader is out you should be able to see the ignitor.
  5. Remove the two screws in the ignitor and follow the wires. Sometimes the plug for the ignitor is behind the bottom drawer near the gas valve. Once you find the plug, go ahead, disconnect it, and install the new ignitor in the reverse order.

Make sure you do not touch the charcoal colored part of the ignitor. The oil from you fingers can cause the ignitor to fail right away.

Please let me know if you need further assistance.

Q:

Will a larger orifice make the flame hotter on my Kenmore gas stove?

A:

The instructions for conversion of the range from natural gas to LP (propane) gas are shown in the first image below. I only see one natural gas orifice for the stove top burners listed in the parts diagram and referred to in the instructions below. The natural gas orifice for the burners on this range is part number WB28K7. You can order this orifice from the Sears PartsDirect website. I do not recommend using a different orifice to convert this range back to natural gas.

The oven burners will need to be adjusted as described below.

I recommend that you have a qualified installer properly convert this range to natural gas. Not converting the range properly can result in a hazardous situation.
