Q:

my broiler/oven will not stay lit

A:

A non working Oven is not something any of us want to see. If you are technically handy, this is a good site to get instruction and fix some things yourself. If you do not feel confident doing your own repairs, an option is to visit Sears Home Services and use the scheduler. While you wait for the expert to review your model, you can check the bottom link for some possibilities. Hope this is of help.

The theory of operation for the oven burners in this range is shown in the image below. If that igniter continues to glow on the affected burner but the gas shuts off (or the burner will not re-ignite) then you could have a weak igniter. A technician would normally check the amp draw through the wire between the igniter and the safety gas valve to verify this failure. If you have an ammeter, you can check that issue. NOTE: Use extreme caution when checking that live amp draw. Wear proper protective equipment (insulated rubber electrical safety gloves and safety goggles) when conducting that live test. Unplug the range as soon as live testing is completed . If the igniter is bad, it will need to be replaced. You can order parts from the Sears PartsDirect website.

If the igniter does not continue to glow, then you could have a problem with the clock control board or the oven temperature sensor.

These tips may help you fix this range failure. If you need more assistance, reply with additional details.

If you get to a point where you need to have a service technician repair the range, you can schedule service through this link: Sears Home Services .

A:

Hello Sidney. If the clock is not working properly, the clock control board will normally need to be replaced. Be sure that you unplug the range before replacing that component.

A:

The clock control board senses the temperature by using a temperature sensor probe in the oven. There is a chance that the temperature probe could also be bad. It is unusual to have 2 component failures at the same time in a range. A problem with a weak burner igniter could also cause the oven burner to shut off too quickly. The theory of operation for the ignition system is shown in the video link that I posted below. If the igniter on the oven burner is weak, then that burner will not ignite and stay lit correctly. If that igniter continues to glow even though the burner shuts off or does not stay lit, then you will probably need to replace that igniter. I hope that this additional information helps. If you need more assistance, let us know.
