Thank you for submitting your question. Anna has provided you with good information regarding the noise you're hearing. The poof noise that you are hearing sounds like the burner is reigniting. This could be caused by a weak oven igniter (WB13K21), gas valve (WB19K36) or an issue with the bake burner (WB16K10035). It's likely that the resistance of that glow bar igniter is just at the limit for allowing the proper current flow through that circuit to the safety gas valve. You can check that issue using a clamp-on ammeter if you have one. Be sure that you follow electrical safety guidelines when conducting that amp draw test if you perform it yourself. Unplug the range when accessing internal components. Wear proper safety equipment (insulated rubber electrical safety gloves and safety goggles) when conducting that amp draw test. Do not make contact with live contacts inside the range when you are conducting that amp draw test with internal components exposed. If you do not have a clamp-on ammeter, you can probably fix this problem by replacing the igniter. You will be taking a slight chance when replacing that component without checking the amp draw but replacing the igniter will probably fix this problem based on your description. I hope this information helps. Please reply back to this thread if you require further assistance with this repair. If you do not feel comfortable performing test or repairing this problem yourself, I recommend scheduling for service. You can schedule for service online with our Sears Home Services team.

I have a Kenmore oven that falls within this model range also. I am having the same poofing problem. I researched some of the causes and adjusted the air flow so I have a nice blue even flame. So I then checked the holes in the burner and found them to be nice and clean. I then ordered a new ignitor changed out the part and oven continues to make poofing sound. Is there a possibility that I need to call the gas company seeing as this is the second oven I have had a possible ignitor problem. The oven I owned before I replaced the glow bar twice and when it needed a third in seven years we just replaced the oven and now low and behold similar problems?

I am the same person from the above oven issue. Now as well as the poofing sound my oven indicator in use light goes out and then comes back on after the oven poofs. Then a minute or so later there's a click and the oven light is out then poof from the oven and oven light is on. With a little more research I notice that it could be an issue with the gas valve and or wiring harness. Is there a way I can use my multi-meter to test the harness and gas valve to find fault if these parts are needed or not?

The theory of operation for the ignition system on your range is shown in the image below. Your symptoms indicate that you probably have a weak igniter on that bake burner. There is no danger in continuing to use the range but you will probably need to replace that bake igniter soon. The part number for that bake burner igniter is WB13K21. You can order that part from the Sears PartsDirect website. Here is a direct link for that part: Igniter .

Unplug the range before accessing and replacing internal components.

These tips may help you with this oven problem in your range. If you need more assistance, reply with additional details.

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 .

Thank you! I ordered the part and installed it in about one hour. After testing the oven, it appears to work fine. The problem is resolved. My only difficulty was that the new part that arrived was an updated part that had the correct wiring coupler, but the wire ends were female instead of male. So the coupler would fit together, but it would not fully engage. The part came with wire nuts to remedy the coupling change issue.
