Q:

IGas Range Question

A:

When it comes knowing everything about your appliance one of the main question is how old is the appliance. While you are waiting on an expert to answer your question, I was searching in the Manage My Life website and found your owner's manual. I have attached the link below. Hope this helps!

Thank you for your question and I understand your concern.

The range was made in 1997. In order for the oven to ignite the glow bar igniter must glow red and it must pull enough current/amperage to cause the oven safety valve to open and let gas into the bake burner.

If the igniter is glowing red and the oven never ignites, replace the glow bar igniter.

If the igntiter is not glowing a technician would disconnect the power cord and then disconnect the igniter. He would re-connect the power supply and then program bake and then check to see if there is 120 volts supplied to the igniter. If voltage was present he would replace the igniter. If there was no voltage, then it likely has a faulty oven control or possibly a faulty oven safety valve.

The oven control is $81.49 and the oven igniter is $81.04. The service fee is approximately $130.00 which includes the labor.

You can have it repaired at your home by a Sears technician. Here is a link for the website: Sears Home Services .

Thank you for your info. Now that I know the machine is 1997......Is it worth repairing or should I update? The reason I ask is that you quote almost $300 to repair.... Thanks for your help.

Robert: If if it just needs the igniter replaced then it would be worth it unlesss you are in the market for a new range. It may be time to up date.
