Check the stove top burners to make sure that the igniters are clicking when they are set to the light position. If the igniters on the burners do not tick, then you could have a problem with that electrical outlet for the range. Check the house circuit breaker for the range. If the breaker is okay, plug a small lamp or appliance into that outlet to see if it is working. If the outlet is bad, I recommend that you have an electrician fix that problem.

If the burner igniters work properly, I recommend that you check the regulator to make sure that the service cut-off valve for the oven is properly positioned as shown in that first image below. The second image shows the components in that oven burner circuit. The third image shows the theory of operation for that oven burner ignition system. See if the igniter is glowing on that oven burner when the thermostat is set in the bake mode. If that igniter is not glowing, then you could have a bad thermostat or bad igniter. A wiring failure or a bad safety gas valve could be causing your problem. If the igniter is glowing, then that igniter is likely bad since the other components in that circuit are apparently okay.

You can order parts from the Sears PartsDirect website.

This information may help you determine the cause of your oven problem in the range. If you need more help, 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 .

Check the burners to see if they ignite using the spark igniters. If the surface burners do not click, I recommend that you check the outlet for that range. The igniter will not glow if the range is not getting power through the outlet. Check the house circuit breaker for that outlet. If the circuit breaker is okay, you will probably need to have an electrician check that outlet.

If the range has power, you probably have a failure in an internal range component. Since the igniter is not glowing, you could have a problem with the thermostat, the igniter, the safety gas valve or the wiring in that circuit. I provided a wiring diagram for that range and some additional technical information in the first image below. The second image shows the theory of operation for that ignition system on the oven burner. I recommend that you unplug the range and check the resistance through that igniter and the safety gas valve to diagnose this failure. You should measure around 1 ohm of resistance through the safety gas valve. The igniter should measure between 20 and 400 ohms of resistance (it should at least have continuity). If those components are okay, you can check the continuity through the thermostat. With that thermostat set to heat the burner (with the range still unplugged ), you should measure continuity (around zero ohms of resistance) through that thermostat. This information should help you determine the cause of this oven heating failure. If all of those components are okay, then you likely have a wiring failure in that circuit.

These tips may help you fix this failure. If you need parts, you can order them from the Sears PartsDirect website. If you need more assistance, reply with additional details.
