Question and Answers

Q:

Why won't the oven heat above 160 degrees?

A:

The likely failure is a weak Bake igniter. When the Bake igniter becomes weak it will not pull enough electrical current to cause the oven gas valve to open. In order to test the current draw of the oven igniter would require an amperage meter. It should pull 3.2-3.6 amps in order to open the oven gas valve. (See image below)

Another way of knowing if the igniter is weak is if you see the Bake igniter glowing for a long period of time before the gas valve opens or if it's glowing and the gas valve never opens. If the Broil igniter looks like it would mount the same as the Bake igniter you could remove the Broil igniter and install it for the Bake igniter to see if the oven will heat properly.

If the bake burner comes on every time when the bake igniter glows bright red the failure is not likely the Bake igniter but possibly the oven temperature sensor probe. Part number WB21X5301 (sensor probe)

The part number of the Bake igniter is WB13K21 I added a link below to Sears Parts Direct with the igniter already looked up.

Q:

Why won't my compressor reach the 160 psi cutoff?

A:

Since air is not leaking in the outlet line, the likely problem is in the pump. You will need to remove the pump head and examine the components. You could have one of the following failures that could prevent the pump from building pressure above 125 psi:

  • Worn or damaged O-rings on the valve plate assembly
  • Damage to valve plate assembly
  • Scratches or wear on the cylinder sleeve
  • Damaged or worn piston assembly
Physical examination of the components will be the only way to determine the cause of your failure. If you are not able to determine the cause of your failure, I recommend that you have a Sears Technician examine the compressor. Here is a link for the Sears Service website: Sears Home Services .
