Thank you for your question.  I am sorry you are having a problem with your Kenmore 362.73278690 oven. 

Caution: Before attempting any repair, turn the power to the oven off first. 

The place to start when the oven doesn work is checking if the ignitors are glowing.  Ther is a Bake and Broil ignitor that should glow very brightly when the oven is turned on.

If one ignitor works but the other doesn't then most likely the ignitor not working is bad.  The parts are the same and can be swaped to check.   Both the Broil and Bake ignitor are the same part. 

If niether ignitor works then I suspect the oven control is at fault. 

Check if the ignitors are glowing and reply below with any additional details for further assistance.

Q:

Why won't my bake burner come on?

A:

You did not state or indicate if the new Bake igniter is glowing red or not, it should be if you have 120vac supplied to it when measuring across the Yellow and White wires unless the Bake igniter is open or if the new igniter is broken. If the gas valve had an open circuit you would not measure any voltage across the Yellow and White wires when checking the voltage at the igniter harness plug.

Check the voltage across the Yellow and White wires while the wires are connected to the igniter while the Oven is turned ON. You could be dropping or loosing the voltage under the load of the igniter. When you checked it with the igniter disconnected it very well could show the correct voltage but not when it's connected to the igniter. This could indicate a valve issue or a loose/bad connection in the circuit.

If the Bake igniter is glowing red and the gas valve does not open, replace the Bake igniter. If the Bake igniter does not pull enough current/amperage, the gas valve will not open.

Resubmit your question with additional details if needed for further assistance.

Q:

My oven wont come on I've replaced the igniter. Everything else works fine.

A:

I am assuming you mean the bake burner, the one underneath the bottom of the oven, is not lighting. Since you didn't tell me anything I am also assuming the new ignitor is not glowing when you turn the bake on.

Someone will need to check some voltages and maybe some amp draws to diagnose and repair the range.

The first test is to turn the oven on to bake at 350 degrees. Measure the voltage between the white wire and the yellow wire at the bake ignitor. If you read 120 volts ac the control and the gas valve are good. If you read 0 volts you need to leave one meter probe on the yellow wire inside the oven and take the other probe to the white wire that comes from the top of the range to the gas valve. If you read 120 volts the gas valve is bad. If you read 0 volts you have a bad control or a broken wire.

Go to the back of the range and remove the cover on the back of the control panel. Read between the yellow wire and white wire on the back of the control. If you read 120 volts you have a broken wire to the bake ignitor. If you read 0 volts the control is bad.

Be sure the range is plugged in and the control is set to 350 and bake during all these tests.

If you need further assistance with the range, send another email and include the details of these tests and we will do our best to assist you.
