Question and Answers

Q:

broiler will not light. Oven works 79078510401 Kenmore Gas range

A:

Thanks for using SearsPartsDirect.com, and for being a valued member. 

I am sorry to hear that the broiler is not lighting. I know how inconvenient that is to have happen.

Chances are the igniter is not glowing at all, or is not glowing hot enough to allow the safety valve to release the gas. More than likely a replacement igniter will solve the problem for you. You could test it first with a multi meter to be sure before replacing it, but this type of issue where bake works and broiler doesn’t, or vice versa, typically indicates an igniter failure. The part number is 318177710. I have linked it below so that you may view it.

A:

Check the ignitor inside the oven to see if it glows bright red when the oven is turned on. If the ignitor is red the oven controls are sending voltage to the ignitor and oven safety valve. Either the oven safety valve or the ignitor might be bad.

Someone needs to measure the voltage between the white wire on the oven safety valve and the yellow wire on the ignitor. The voltage should read 120 volts ac.

If 120 volts ac is being supplied to the ignitor and the oven safety valve and the ignitor is red someone needs to measure the amps drawn by the ignitor. The ignitor should draw 3.4-3.6 amps in order for the oven safety valve to open.

If the ignitor is drawing 3.4-3.6 amps and the oven safety valve is not opening, the oven safety valve is bad. If the ignitor is drawing less then 3.4 amps, the ignitor is bad.
