Q:

oven gas doesnt ignite.. just fills up with gas... broiler works stove top works... just oven will not work...help

A:

Thank you for your question and I understand your concern.

CAUTION; DO NOT use the bake feature until your range has been repaired. Based on your symptom and details the bake igniter is too weak to allow the gas valve to open fully/properly in order to ignite. If the bake burner is clean and intact (not broken or rusted out) then the current draw of the bake igniter should be tested. Also make sure the bake igniter is mounted up against the burner and not tilted and hanging down by one screw. The gas must flow to the bake igniter in order to ignite the burner.

I added an image below with the theory of the bake operation and how to check for a weak bake igniter. You will need a clamp on amperage meter in order to check the current draw of the bake igniter. If the bake igniter is not pulling a minimum of 2.9 amps; replace the igniter. The bake igniter is part #5303935066 and it can be ordered from Sears PartsDirect The bake igniter glow bar should pull a minimum of 2.90 amps in order to open and keep the gas valve open. If the igniter is only pulling 2.79 amps or less it may not be sufficient to open the oven safety valve properly. Use caution when checking the current draw and do not have your face over the bake burner when checking the current draw.

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 .

Q:

e 31

A:

I provided information about that E 31 code in the image below. I recommend that you have a service technician diagnose and repair this type of failure. Here is a link for the Sears Service website: Sears Home Services . There are many wires inside that cook top. Those wires need to be routed properly when the cook top is reassembled after the inside is accessed for service. If you open this cook top on your own, there is a chance that it may not work properly unless it is properly reassembled. If you are completely confident that you can shut off the house circuit breaker to completely disconnect electrical power and access the components, then you may be able to perform the troubleshooting that his shown below for that fault code 31. Be sure that you reassemble the cook top properly. If you need parts, you can order them from the Sears PartsDirect website.

Be sure that you completely disconnect electrical power to the cook top before accessing internal components and replacing parts.

If you need more help, reply with additional details and we will assist you further.
