Question and Answers

Q:

Why won't my Kenmore gas oven light?

A:

First, the bake and broil burners do not use a spark ignition system; it has a bake and broil glow bar ignitor. You did not indicate if the ignitor is glowing red or not. The ignitor must glow red hot before the oven gas valve will open. If the glow bar ignitor glows red then it’s likely a weak ignitor and it’s not pulling enough current/amperage to cause the gas valve to open.

I added the theory of operation in the image below. If more information is needed resubmit your question with additional details for further assistance.

If the glow bar is not glowing red; the failure could be:

  • An open circuit in the gas valve
  • thermostat
  • clock
  • the clean timer
  • glow bar ignitor

I recommend calling a service technician to diagnose the failure.
