It sounds like your describing either the oven burner igniters or the surface burner igniters, not sure. If you are talking about the oven igniters you will need to access & check the resistance of the igniter with an ohmmeter. The meter should read close to 160 ohms value. If you do not get a reading (open) then you will need to replace the igniter. Another possibility; safety valve, ERC (clock) or wiring harness.

The surface burner igniters operate off of a spark module. If none of the surface burners spark I recommend replacing the spark module if the harness checks good.

I am providing you with the service tech information sheet in the link below. Please click on the link for complete step by step instructions to access, test & replace the suspected parts listed.

Remember to disconnect power to the range before attempting to access or replace parts.

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 .

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.

Your assumption of it being the igniter inside the stove was correct and the igniter on the bottom registered 0 on the ohm meter while the one on top hit nearly 200 ohms. I take this to mean that i need to replace the bottom igniter. upon looking up the part number i found that the top and bottom igniter have the same part number but the ones that i am currently holding have very different electrical ends on them. Do I have to buy a universal and splice them together or am I missing something?

Thank you for the follow-up. Yes, you will need to splice the wires together with the included wire nuts. You can cut the plug-in connector off the old igniter & re-use it also if you wish. Remember to disconnect power before attempting access or part replacement.
