Question and Answers

Q:

oven not getting hot enough 36275321000 Kenmore Gas range

A:

You could have a bad temperature sensor (part WB21X5301)  or a weak bake burner igniter (part WB13K21). 

 

Try this test: Start the oven in the broil mode and see if the broiler heats properly. If it does, then the oven temperature sensor is likely okay. You will probably need to replace the bake burner igniter if the broiler works properly.

 

If the broiler will not heat correction, then you probably have a bad oven temperature sensor. You can check that component using a volt/ohm meter. Unplug the range and measure the resistance of the sensor. It should measure around 1100 ohms at room temperature. If that sensor is defective, replace it.

Unplug the range and shut off the gas supply before accessing internal components.

Thank you for your question and I understand your concern.

Converting the range back to Natural gas will involve removing the LP surface burner orifices and re-installing the Natural gas orifices. The gas regulator vent cap will need to be removed and flip over for Natural gas. The bake and broil burner spuds must be opened by turning them back out (counter clockwise) about 2-3 revolutions and then adjusting the air shutters on the bake and broil burners for the best blue flame possible.

If you do not have the Natural gas orifices, the part number is WB28K10022 and you will need 4. You can order the natural gas orifices WB28K10022 for model 362.7532100 from Sears Parts Direct. I also added an image below to reference showing how to remove the surface burner orifices.

I hope this is helpful. If I may be of further assistance as more details become available, please reply to this post.

A:

The ovens had a lot of extra work over the holidays and some are developing problems. While you wait for the expert, you may want to check page 46 in the owner's manual that I attached below. I see it has this problem and some diagrams that may help. I also found a similar problem from a previous expert post and attached that answer below. Bear in mind the model is a bit different than yours. Hope one of these help you find an answer.

Thank you for your question and I understand your concern. The bake burner and broil burner uses a glow bar igniter that must glow red hot and it must pull enough current to cause the gas valve to open. If the glow bar igniter is weak, the igniter will not pull enough current to open the gas valve.

If you open the oven door and look towards the top of the oven cavity and turn on the broiler you will see the glow bar glowing red and once it pulls enough current the gas valve will open and the gas will ignite off the red hot igniter.

The bake burner should operate the exact same way. I added an image below with the theory of operation and instructions how to access the bake igniter. You will likely find the bake igniter glowing but too weak to open the gas valve. Now, if you do not find the bake igniter glowing then it could have a failed electronic oven control, gas valve or just a failed oven igniter which means you will likely need to call and have the range diagnosed and repaired.

If you find it glowing and it never causes the gas valve to open, replace the igniter. The igniter is part #WB13K21 and can be ordered from Sears Parts Direct .

If you do not feel confident repairing this problem yourself, then you can have it repaired at your home by a Sears technician. Here is a link for the website: Sears Home Services .
