Question and Answers

Q:

Kenmore Gas Range bake and broil burners won't ignite, but gas is flowing. Ignitor glows.

A:

A non working Range 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 links for some possibilities. Hope this is of help.

Thank you for your question and I understand your concern.

If the glow bar ignitors are glowing and not igniting the bake and broil burners I would suspect weak glow bar ignitors. If the ignitors are weak they will not pull enough current/amperage to allow the gas valve to open or open enough to ignite.

Replace the bake and broil ignitors and your bake and broil burners will likely operate normally again. The broil ignitor is part #318177710 and the bake ignitor is part #316489400. You can order them from Sears PartsDirect

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 .
