Troubleshooting your Kenmore gas range when the oven won't heat
Check the gas supply. If surface burners aren't working, check your gas supply cut-off valve to make sure it's open.
Test the igniter. Pull the bottom oven panel out and start the oven. If the igniter glows but doesn't light the burner, it may not be getting hot enough to open the safety gas valve. You'll likely need to replace the igniter.
If the igniter doesn't glow, measure resistance through the igniter using a multimeter. Replace the igniter if the meter measures infinite resistance.
Test the safety gas valve. Measure resistance through the safety gas valve using the multimeter. The meter should measure less than 5 ohms of resistance through the gas valve. If the meter measure infinite resistance, you'll need to have a service technician replace the safety gas valve.
