A:

The theory of operation for that ignition system is shown in the image below. A technician will normally measure the amp draw in the wire between the igniter and the safety gas valve to determine whether that igniter is bad if it is glowing. If it is not glowing, then some continuity checks and possibly voltage checks would need to be made. NOTE: Voltage checks and amp draw checks are dangerous if not conducted properly. If you are not completely confident in your technical ability to safely check those issues, I recommend that you have a service technician diagnose and repair this failure. If you want to check those issues yourself, let us know and we will assist you further.

A:

From what you're describing it sounds like the wiring harness going to the oven light switch is shorting against the oven door hinge whenever the door is opened. Try plugging the unit into a non GFI plug to see if you still have the problem;( Note The house breaker will trip if there is a short.) if you do I recommend checking the oven light switch wiring harness, if not I suspect the GFI plug is defective.

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. Be aware that there could be sharp edges inside the appliance that could cause cuts or other injuries to yourself or others.
