I am having trouble getting my broiler to work on my Kenmore range. Does the broiler require a separate pilot light? Thanks, Alan

Sorry about that. My problem is with a Kenmore Elite Model #790-367-13500. Again, I can't get the broiler to work. It will not light up and I'm wondering if there is a separate pilot light that may need to be lit or it may be another problem.

A:

The broil burner does have a separate glow bar igniter. I provided a theory of operation for that type of ignition system in the image below. I recommend that you check that igniter to see if it is glowing in the broil mode. If not, then you could have a bad igniter, a wiring failure or a problem with that clock control board in the console. If the igniter is glowing, then you will probably need to replace that glow bar igniter since it is likely too weak to ignite the broil burner. In that situation, you can shut off the house circuit breaker for the range (or unplug it) and then carefully switch the bake and broil igniters to see if that broil burner will ignite properly with that bake igniter installed on that broil burner. If it does, then replacing the bad igniter should fix your problem. You can order the new igniter from the Sears PartsDirect website. The part number for the igniter is 318177710. Be sure that you do not touch the element of that igniter with your fingers. Her are videos that show how to replace the igniters in that type of range: Range Broil Igniter Replacement , Range Oven Bake Igniter Replacement . Your slide-in range is slightly different than the ranges shown in the videos but the basic procedures are the same.

If the broil igniter is not glowing after switching the igniters, then you could have a problem with the clock control board in the console, a wiring failure or a bad safety gas valve. Reply with additional details if you need more help with this problem.

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 .
