Question and Answers

Q:

takes 20 mins to turn stove on why? 36272422200

A:

Thanks for the inquiry and for being a valued member.

I am sorry to hear of the issue you're having with the range taking so long to ignite. I know how frustrating that is.

I suspect that the igniter will need to be replaced to solve the issue. The igniter needs to glow to a specified ohms rating to allow the safety valve to release the gas. A defective igniter may glow, but not hot enough for the valve to release the fuel. 

You can test the igniter to see if it's working if you have a meter. To properly test the igniter, you need to read the amps the igniter draws. The igniter will (or should) increase in amp draw as it heats up. When the amp draw of the igniter reaches 3.4-3.6 the gas valve should open. This should happen within 40 seconds from when the oven is turned on. If the amp draw doesn't reach 3.4 the igniter is bad. 

I hope this helps and thanks for using SearsPartsDirect.com. We appreciate your business.

That conversion to natural gas should be completed by a qualified installer.

I posted the LP conversion instructions in the first image below. That is the best reproduction that I have for that document. I know that it is a poor copy and difficult to read. Here are some additional tips for you and the installer:

  1. Before ordering parts, I recommend that you check the area beside the regulator for a package that may contain the natural gas orifices and the instructions shown below in a hard copy form (as directed on page 36 of the owner's manual that Anna T. posted in the above response)/
  2. You will only need 3 of that part number WB28K10121. That is the medium 1.24mm orifice that is described in the image below. Those natural gas orifices will be installed on the Left Front, Right Front and Right Rear burners.
  3. You will need 1 large orifice for the Left Rear burner. That part number is WB28K10122.
  4. The center burner uses the small orifice that is part number WB28K10123.
  5. Those surface burner orifices can be changed as shown in the first image below (I hope that the installer can read it well enough or knows how to complete that task).
  6. The pressure regulator will need to be converted back to natural gas as shown in the first image below.
  7. The orifice hood on the oven burner will need to be backed off about 2 1/2 turns to reverse that LP setting as described in the first image below.
  8. The low flame adjustment should be completed for the surface burners as shown in the second image.
  9. That owner's manual shows the adjustment for the oven burner on page 35.


I hope that the conversion information provided above helps. If you have further questions about that conversion, let me know.

The problem with the oven burner not igniting could be caused by the oven shut-off valve on the regulator being in the "off" position. That metal tab should be pushed toward the regulator to open the gas supply to the oven burner. That valve will not affect the surface burner gas supply.

If that oven shut-off valve on the regulator is "on" then you could have a problem with the glow bar ignitor on the oven burner even though it seems to be glowing red hot. Here is a link for a video that explains that oven burner ignition system: Video: Gas Ignition Operation . Even though the ignitor is glowing, it may be too weak to allow enough current to flow through the safety gas valve so that the gas valve opens for ignition. There is a chance that you may need to replace that ignitor in the oven.

You can order parts from this page: Kenmore Gas Range Model 362.7242200 Parts . Be sure that you unplug the range before accessing and replacing internal components.

If you need more help with the oven burner ignition problem, let us know.

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

Most Sears technicians will not be able to complete the natural gas conversion on your range. You can contact your local gas supplier for an installer. You may also be able to find a pre-screened service provider on the ServiceLive.com website.

NOTE: Conversion of this range to natural gas should be performed by a qualified installer.

You may have missed the reversal of one or more of the conversion steps shown in the image below. Make sure that the regulator was converted back to natural gas. The oven burner orifice spud should have been turned back to the natural gas position. You may need to play with this adjustment to find the correct position for natural gas. The air shutter on the oven burner will likely need to be closed to achieve the proper flame. These tips should help you resolve this problem.

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

If you are not a qualified installer, you can likely find a service provider on the ServiceLive.com website that can complete this conversion. Here is a link for that website: ServiceLive.com

Thank you for the attachment and leading me to the regulator. Mine is a bit different in that you just flip the nut over to allow more volume for NG. I loosened the oven burner orif. but I don't see the illustration (mentioned in step 4 of the attach.) for the oven pilot selector screw. I have more flames now than I did but still not full power, so please direct me to the pilot selector screw step 4 talks about.

I took that direction out of the image after I noticed (but not before you saw it). That step applies to a range with a pilot light instead of the glow bar igniter and safety gas valve that you range has. You do not need to complete that step on your range. The technical sheet that I used to provide the conversion instructions applies to several different models (some of which have pilot lights instead of the glow bar igniter/safety gas valve system that yours has). The burner spud on the oven burner should normally be loosened about 2.5 turns. I recommend that you tinker with that adjustment and the air shutter to get the proper flame. You may need to unscrew the oven burner spud on the burner more to get the proper NG gas flow. Let me know if you need more help.

The tinkering w/the spud worked on the flames, she's ready for cookie dough now! I thank you and my kids thank you!
