Unplug the range for 2 minutes and then plug it back in to reset the control board. The clock control board may have encountered a power surge or glitch through the electrical lines that caused it to freeze up. Resetting that control board will sometimes allow it to function properly.

If that does not help, check to see if the bake igniter glows when the oven is set in the bake mode. Check the same issue for the broil function. If the igniters are not glowing, then there is a chance that you have a problem with that clock control board in the console. You can unplug the range and check the back of that control board for a burn mark since you heard a pop noise. Here is a link for a brief repair video that shows how to replace that clock control board: Range Clock Control Board Replacement . You don't have to remove that control board yet. Just check the wiring connections and look for a burned spot on the circuit board. If the control board is apparently damaged then it will need to be replaced. You can order that part from the Sears PartsDirect website if needed. You may also need to order that overlay unless you can reuse the original one as shown in that video.

If the igniters are glowing properly in the bake and broil modes then the clock control board and other components in the oven burner circuits are probably okay. A bad igniter could be causing your problem if the igniter glows but the burner will not light. I provided the theory of operation for that ignition system in the image below.

These tips may help you resolve this oven heating 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 .

I called an used appliance store and they advised that it was the heating element and a new ignitor would be needed.

A:

The oven igniter is likely too weak in order to open the gas valve. A weak igniter will not pull enough current to cause the oven gas valve to open. The igniter # 5303935066 is available at SearsPartsDirect .
