Question and Answers


range model crg9800aab no oven heat bake or broil clock works fine stove top fine how to troubleshoot


A failure of the bake and broil burners points to a bad clock control board, a bad safety gas valve or a wiring failure in the oven circuit. The safety gas valve is the most suspect component given these details. I recommend that you check to see if the bake igniter glows when you set the oven in the bake mode. Check the broil igniter in the broil mode. If neither of those igniters is glowing, you can unplug the range and check the continuity through the safety gas valve for the bake and broil circuits. You should measure about 1.5 ohms of resistance through that gas valve using a volt/ohm meter. If that valve is "open" (measures Ol -- open load or infinite resistance) then it will need to be replaced. I recommend that you have a service technician replace that valve. Here is a link for the Sears Service website: Sears Home Services . If the safety gas valve is okay and the wiring connections are okay, then you will probably need to replace the clock control board in the console. A technician would normally check the voltage going out of that control board to the bake and broil circuits before replacing that control. I do not recommend that you check that live voltage yourself unless you are completely confident that you can safely complete that type of voltage check. Wearing protective rubber gloves during that voltage check is necessary to complete that type of check. If that control board is bad, it will need to be replaced. You can order parts from the Sears PartsDirect website.

If the igniters glow but the burners will not light, then you could have a problem with the igniters or the safety gas valve. You would need to check the amp draw through the circuit using a clamp-on ammeter. The basic theory of operation for the ignition circuit in your range is shown in the image below. If the igniter is glowing but the resistance of that igniter does not decrease to a point where the minimum 2.5 amps is flowing through that circuit, the safety gas valve will not open. If the amperage through that circuit is 2.5 amps or higher, then the safety gas valve would need to be replaced. It is rare for 2 igniters to fail at one time but it is possible.
