To test the bake burner you need to remove the oven bottom and the flame spreader on top of the bake burner.

Turn the oven on bake and see if the bake ignitor glows like the broil ignitor.

If the ignitor is glowing you know the control is sending the voltage to the gas valve and ignitor.

The problem could be in the ignitor or the oven safety valve. To test you need to read the amperage draw of the ignitor. The ignitor should have an amp draw of 3.2-3.6 amps after it has been on for 30 seconds.

If the amperage is less than 3.2 the ignitor is the problem. If the amperage is 3.2-3.6 the oven safety valve is bad.

If the ignitor does not glow, read the voltage between the white wire on the oven safety valve and the yellow wire on the ignitor.

If you read 110-120 volts ac the ignitor is bad. If you read less than 110 volts the problem is in the control board or the wiring to the ignitor. You need to test the wiring and if it is good replace the oven control board.

Could you please describe how to check the amperage draw on the ignitor? I have a craftsman meter but what exactly do you put the probes on? And after it has been on for 30 seconds? Any detailed information is greatly appreciated.

johnfelts,
johnfelts,
I will be happy to assist you. The L1 side of the ignitor should have a yellow wire connected to it. To check the amps you will need an amp clamp. If you do not have one, you can pick one up at Sears. You should place your amp clamp on the yellow wire to check the amps. Then turn the oven on and observe the amp reading. If you do not have a minimum of 2.9 amps after a minute, look at the ignitor. If it is glowing, the problem is most likely a faulty ignitor. If you do not have an amp clamp to do the checks, you can get by without it. If the ignitor is glowing but the flame does not come on the problem is likely a faulty ignitor. If it does not come on you can ohm the components. First, unplug the oven. Then remove the wires to the gas valve. Place the leads on the terminals on the valve. You should have an ohm reading of 1 to 1.2. If you do not get this reading, the valve is defective. I posted two images below to aid in the diagnosis. Just click on the images to enlarge them. If you need to order the part for the oven, you can do so from the foll0wing link. Kenmore oven parts
