Question and Answers

Q:

Kenmore gas stove, the oven won't work but burners do work

A:

Thank you for your question and I understand your concern.

If the broiler will ignite but not the bake burner, I would suspect a faulty glow bar igniter. The bake burner operation works like the broiler operation. Open the oven door and turn on the broiler. You will see the glow bar igniter begin to glow red and once it gets red hot and pulls enough current/amperage (min of 2.5 amps), the oven gas valve will open and the burner will ignite.

In order to access and see the bake igniter, the oven floor will need to be taken off. Open the oven door and remove the racks, remove the two screws at the back of the oven floor. Lift the back of the oven floor up, slide it back in order to clear the front lip and remove the floor. You will see another panel (flame spreader) that will need to be taken off to access the glow igniter. If you find the glow bar glowing, it is likely too weak to pull enough current/amperage to cause the gas valve to open. If the igniter is not glowing, it could be broken or it may have faulty selector switch or thermostat.

I hope this is helpful. If I may be of further assistance as more details become available, please reply to this post.
