Question and Answers

Q:

Kenmore gas oven, takes too long to preheat

A:

Thank you for your question and I understand your concern.

Based on your symptom and details; the glow bar igniter is weak. The igniter must pull enough current/amperage to open the oven gas valve. When it gets weak it will take the gas valve along time to open and supply gas to the bake/broil burner.

Replace the glow bar igniter and your oven will operate properly again.

You can order the oven igniter #5303935066 at Sears Parts Direct. NOTE: Disconnect the power cord from the power source before servicing.

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

Michael; without having the mode number of your gas range, I can't be certain if the oven bottom is easily removed or not. Look at the oven floor and see if there are a couple of screws at the back of the oven floor. If so, remove the two screws and then lift the back of the oven floor up and slide it back to clear the front lip of the oven frame and then lift it out. You can then follow the wires to the gas valve to see if one was pulled off. If all the wires are connected and you do no measure any voltage across the two wires connected to the igniter, it could have faulty oven control board, or a faulty oven safety valve. Reply with the model number if additional information is needed.
