The theory of operation for the burner ignition system is shown in the image below. I also provided the wiring diagram. You could have a bad thermostat, a failed igniter, an open gas valve or a wiring failure in the ignition circuit that could be causing this problem. If you have a volt/ohm meter, you can unplug the range and check the continuity through the thermostat with it set to heat. If you measure continuity through that component, you can check the resistance of the gas valve. The gas valve should measure about 1.5 ohms. If the gas valve is okay, you can check the resistance through the igniter. The resistance through that component will vary. If you read Ol (open load or infinite resistance) then the igniter is bad and will need to be replaced.

You can order parts from the Sears PartsDirect website.

These tips may help you determine the cause of this oven failure in your range. If you need more help, reply with additional details.

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 .
