Question about Kenmore Kitchen Ranges
My oven will not light. I swapped the bake ignitor with the briol ignitor and it still did not work (oven one worked when connected to the broil circuit). I put a volt meter on the bake circuit and there was no power to the bake ignitor. Also, when I try a self-clean cycle, it waits about 10 seconds and quits (no error code). Is there a circuit board issue? Is it possible to fix by replacing a part?

SOURCE: Oven will not bake or broil
bann...why did you replace the element? It is possible that the relay or the control circuit were the problems and still are. The hi limit switch is a temperature 'box' which is designed to open the circuit in case of overheating. Rarely a problem. First, these units are 3 wire units. That means 220 volts ... two breakers. They may be part of a linked unit or separate. Turn them BOTH off and then on. Do all of your burners heat properly on high? If you have a voltage tester, you can test to see if the voltage is there. Unplug the unit. The vertical slot is neutral. Each of the other slots with the neutral should light the tester. If not, your problem is outside the stove.

Check that you have not lost one side of the 240 volt line at the receptacle. This would be MOST noticeable on the oven but would also reduce the cooktop.
Beyond that, the thermostat and oven timer are suspect.
Inadvertently setting a delayed start of the oven could cause it of course, but that would be obvious.
