Question about Kenmore Ovens
I have a Kenmore Gas oven. The stove top igniters and gas work great, however the oven just stopped working a couple of days ago. There is no smell of gas when the oven is turned on like normal however, it sounds like it attempts at turning on just now gas. I cannot find a model number on this thing any where either. If you need I can send a picture of it, if it would help. Oven is at least 4-5 years old.
The Kenmore 24-Inch Self-Cleaning Gas Oven 30472
features a low-maintenance self-cleaning feature and is offered at a
Many retailers offer only a limited selection of gas ovens for 24-inch cutouts, but Sears has a fairly good number of models to choose from. And the 30472 stands out because of the its price and the self-cleaning feature. Since most 24-inch models are so similar, you'll want to make finding the best price your priority.
The 30472 (Sears item 02230472000) built-in gas oven offers a feature set that is typical of ovens in this category. You'll find a modern frameless door design and a digital display. Most all products offered today have a built-in clock and digital timer, like this one. The interior light goes on automatically when the door is opened. As an alternative, you can switch on the light manually without opening the door. This allows you to take a peak at a cake or other food without any heat escaping.
As is typical, this model also offers a pre-heat signal. Unlike the ovens of yesteryear, when the selected temperature is reached, this model will alert you.
Offered here in white, this model also comes in black (30479), bisque (30474), or stainless steel with black (30473).
At an attractive price, the 30472 warrants some serious consideration because of the self-cleaning feature.

On some ranges, there is an automatic shutoff valve located in the pilot assembly that shuts off the gas to the burner any time the pilot and the burner are both off. If this unit malfunctions, don't try to fix it yourself; you should call a professional service person for repair or replacement.
An electrically operated shutoff valve used on some gas ranges has two facing valves, an electromagnet, and a manually activated reset button. The thermocouple fitting is next to the pilot valve, as in most burner systems. A small amount of electricity holds the facing valves apart. If the pilot light goes out, no electricity is generated, and the valve closes to turn the gas off. On this type of system, relight the pilot by depressing the reset button and holding a match to the pilot. It should take about a minute to light this pilot. If you aren't able to relight this system, call a professional service person.
