Thank you for your question and I understand your concern.

Even though the igniter is glowing bright red, it's not likely pulling enough current/amperage to open the gas valve. This is why the oven gas valve will open when tapped on. Replace the oven igniter and it will most likely ignite and operate normally.

The glow bar igniter must pull a minimum of 2.9 amps. Don't assume the igniter is okay just because it is glowing brightly.

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

mine quit working a month ago. Just flat out nothing, I set the temp for the oven (doesn't matter if I set it to bake or broil), the clock/ set part makes the normal click noise and nothing else happens. I have no codes flashing, no igniter glowing red and no gas turning on down there. The stove part of the range works perfectly. Ideas?

Thank you for your question and I understand your concern.

If that specific electrode is not sparking when you turn the burner valve to light for that burner, I suspect it could have faulty spark igniter switch located on that burner valve or it could have disconnected wire on that igniter switch.

You may be able to see if both wires are connected to spark igniter switch by removing the burner knob. If not, the top will need to be taken off and possibly the manifold cover. The manifold cover is the panel that covers the burner valves. See images below. Disconnect the power cord from the power source before servicing.

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

Q:

What part do I need to fix my Kenmore gas range model 790.71422400 that occasionally does not heat?

A:

It is not likely that the regulator is causing this problem since the gas flows and the bake burner ignites once the safety valve opens. Even though the ignitor is glowing, it is the likely failed component that is causing your intermittent ignition problem in the oven. The safety valve will not open unless the resistance of the ignitor decreases to a point where enough current flows through the circuit to the safety valve so that the safety valve opens and causes ignition. The ignitor resistance is probably just a little higher than it should be to enable enough current to flow to the safety valve. Although the use of the burners is typically unrelated to the oven ignition circuit, the use of the burner may somehow affect the resistance or current flow through the ignitor so that the safety valve opens. To verify this failure, a technician will usually take an amperage reading on the ignition circuit with a clamp on ammeter. This is an expensive tool to buy in order to check this single issue. It is likely that you can fix this range problem by replacing the ignitor. The part number for the ingitor is 5303935066. You can order this part from the Sears PartsDirect website.
