Question and Answers

Q:

Why won't my oven light in my Kenmore gas range?

A:

Open the broiler drawer after turning the oven on to see if the glow bar igniter is glowing or not. If it's glowing and the oven gas valve never opens then the glow bar igniter is too weak to cause the gas valve to open and the glow bar igniter will need to be removed and replaced. If it's not glowing, then the igniter is likely broken or there is no voltage supply to it. See image below for more troubleshooting information. The glow bar igniter is part #5303935066.

Q:

Why won't my Kenmore range/oven shut off after replacing the glow bar igniter?

A:

It is normal operation for the igniter to stay on constantly as long as the oven is heating up to the set temperature. The igniter will stay on as long as the burner is operating and once it reaches the set temperature the oven thermostat breaks contact and voltage to igniter and then the igniter should fade off and then the burner should shut off with in a few seconds. Now, if you indicating that the oven burner is not shutting off and over heating then the gas safety valve has failed or the oven thermostat contacts are stuck closed.

Oven Burner Will Not Cycle Off:

  1. Disconnect electrical power from range. If the burner does not cycle off, the safety valve is defective. If the burner cycles off go to step 2.
  2. Check polarity to the range. If polarity is incorrect, check range wiring for a short to chassis. If polarity is correct go to step 3.
  3. Allow oven to heat to 300 degrees F, disconnect power, and lift the cooktop to obtain access to the oven thermostat. Set the thermostat to 200 degrees F and remove wires from the thermostat.
  4. Check across the thermostat terminals with an Ohm meter. If the meter reads continuity, the thermostat is defective.
