Question and Answers


Broiler works but not baking


I can understand wanting to know what part to replace but without having the specific model number of your range I can not be 100% certain of the exact model you have. I can provide general information based on your symptom.

Based on your symptom, there could be one of several possible failures preventing the bake burner from operating. It could have a failed clock/oven control, gas valve or bake igniter.

The bake igniter is most likely the failure. It could be too weak to cause the gas valve to open or it could be broken and not glowing at all.

When you turn ON the broiler you will notice the broil igniter begin to glow red. The glowing igniter must pull enough current to cause the oven gas valve to open. The bake operation works the same way but the igniter and bake burner is located under the floor of the oven.

Remove the oven floor and then turn the oven to bake and see if the glow bar igniter is glowing or not. (See image below) If it glows and the oven gas valve never opens then the bake igniter is too weak and not pulling enough current to cause the gas valve to open. Replace the bake igniter. If the bake igniter is not glowing then it could have a failed gas valve, clock/oven control or a broken igniter. This would mean in order to diagnose which has failed will require disconnecting the igniter and checking it for continuity. If it has continuity then you will need to check to see if the igniter is getting AC voltage or not. If there is no voltage to the igniter then you will need to ohm out the circuit through the gas valve. If the gas valve measures continuity, and there is no voltage supply to the bake igniter, then the oven control/clock has likely failed. You could verify this by checking the voltage to the igniter from the oven control/clock assembly.

Note: I do not recommend checking voltages unless you have experience and feel safe and confident in doing so, otherwise I recommend calling a service technician to diagnose and repair your range.

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 .
