Your current burner ignition problem could be caused by a failed igniter, an "open" safety gas valve or a wiring failure in that circuit. There is a slight chance that you could have a bad thermostat but that is unlikely since you just replaced that component. The wiring diagram for that circuit is shown in the first image below. The second image shows the theory of operation for that ignition system. I recommend that you unplug the range and check the wiring connections on the thermostat, the igniter and the safety gas valve. You can check the resistance through that gas valve and the igniter using a volt/ohm meter. That gas valve should measure around 1.5 ohms of resistance. The igniter should measure between 10 and 400 ohms of resistance. Continuity (some measurable resistance) is needed through that igniter. If either of those components are "open" (measure Ol -- open load or infinite resistance) then they will need to be replaced.

You can order parts from the Sears PartsDirect.com website.

This information should help you repair this failure. If you need more assistance, reply with additional details.

If you get to a point where you need to have a service technician repair the range, you can schedule service through this link: Sears Home Services .

I am assuming the oven burner is coming on and going off without you turning the oven thermostat knob. If this is the case, the oven thermostat will need to be replaced.

The part number of the oven thermostat is WB20K8, and the price is $93.97. You can order the thermostat at Parts Direct

You seem to be indicating that one of the stove top burners is clicking. You did not indicate that you see a flame on the burner. This type of problem could be caused by a bad burner switch. I recommend that you have a service technician examine the range and repair this type of problem. Here is a link for the Sears Service website: Sears Home Services .

If you need more help, reply with additional details and we will try to assist you further.

Thank you Lyle. It is not the stove top. It is the actual oven. Yes we do see a flame. The clicking is from the metal expanding from the heat.

Thanks for the additional information. The oven ignition system is controlled by the thermostat that is just behind the control knob for the oven in that console. The wiring diagram in the first image below shows that oven ignition circuit with the thermostat circled in green. Based on your description, that oven thermostat (part number WB20K8) must be the defective component. I recommend that you have a service technician replace that thermostat. I provided a link for the Sears Service website in my previous response. If you want to replace that thermostat yourself, you can order it from the Sears PartsDirect website (see link below). To access that thermostat, you will need to lift the cook top as shown in the second image. Not the routing of that temperature sensor from the thermostat to the oven cavity. That sensor will need to be positioned properly. If you need more help, reply with additional details.
