Question and Answers


Oven Range Gas/ Bake burner not working?


Thank you for your question and I understand your concern.

The bake burner operates like the broil burner. When the oven is set to bake, the electronic oven control closes the bake relay which completes the path of voltage to the bake glow bar igniter. If the bake igniter is broken, it will not glow. If the igniter is glowing, the igniter must pull enough current/amperage to cause the oven gas valve to open. If it glows and the burner never ignites, the bake igniter is weak and it will need to be replaced.

The bake burner and bake igniter is located under the floor of the oven. You can remove the oven floor and then set the oven to bake and see if the glow bar igniter will glow red or not. If it does not glow, the igniter could be broken. The igniter can be disconnected and tested for continuity/resistance with an Ohm meter. If it does not measure any resistance, the igniter is broken. If the igniter will glow, the igniter is too weak to pull enough current/amperage to open the gas valve and the bake igniter will need to be replaced.

To access the Bake Burner and Ignitor;

  1. Turn off electrical power to the range.
  2. Remove oven door and racks.
  3. Remove screws securing bottom bake cover.
  4. Raise the back of the bake burner cover and slide cover back to release the front edge of cover and lift out of oven cavity.
  5. Remove screws securing bake burner assembly to the oven chassis.
  6. Maneuver bake burner from the burner orifice and out of the slotted location.
  7. Pull forward on assembly to allow the ignitor terminal plug to pass through the back of the oven cavity.
  8. Disconnect terminal plug and remove assembly from the oven cavity.
  9. Remove screws securing ignitor to bake burner.
  10. Replace and reassemble in reverse order.

If the igniter is good, and it will not glow, then it likely has a faulty electronic oven control. In order to confirm the the control is faulty will require making a voltage measurement across the two wires connected to the igniter. It must measure 110-120 volts. If it does not measure any voltage, then the voltage supply should be measured at the control board across the Yellow wire on P5 connector to white wire on P2 connector. NOTE: I do not recommend making any voltage measurements 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 .
