Question and Answers

Q:

oven wont lite 79078772402 Kenmore Gas range

A:

Thank you for choosing SearsPartsDirect.com and being a valued member.  I can certainly understand how frustrating it can be when your oven will not light. 


Oven igniter: 
 
In order to open the gas safety valve and allow 

gas to ?ow to the burner tube the ignitor must 
create a minimum 2.9 amp draw through the 
safety valve circuit. 
Test the oven ignitor with an amp meter to 
determine if it is creating the proper amp draw. Do 
not assume that an ignitor is good simply because 
it is glowing brightly

Safety Valve:
If the oven ignitor provides the proper amp draw 
through the safety valve circuit and the gas supply 
and pressure have been veri? ed to be correct but 
the safety valve still will not open, then the fault is 
within the safety valve itself. 
! NOTE !
NEVER APPLY LINE VOLTAGE TO THE OVEN SAFETY VALVE TERMINALS. THIS WILL RESULT IN BURNING 
OUT THE HEATER STRIP AND FAILURE OF THE VALVE. TEST THE CONTINUITY OF THE INTERNAL CIRCUIT 
WITH AN OHM METER.

SAFETY NOTICE: Be sure to disconnect power to the appliance before performing any repairs. If you are not comfortable with doing any voltage checks that might be recommended, please contact your local service provider for repairs. Be aware that there could be sharp edges inside the appliance that could cause cuts or other injuries to yourself or others.
