Kenmore 790.7936 gas range has no power to bake ignitor

My oven will not light. I swapped the bake ignitor with the broil 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 when turning on oven (was power when broiler was turned on). There is no noise or responce. 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?.

i would look into the valve/regulater at which you connected the gas line, off to the side or somewhere on the regulater itself there should be a shut off for the oven control, simply flick to open positon and you should start right up. it would shut off gas to oven but allow burners to light.

You did not post a complete model number, but this should help:
Take racks out of oven. Remove two screws at the very back of the oven bottom. Lift back side of bottom up and back a bit to remove oven floor. Remove flame spreader (one nut at center). ignitor is at the back left of burner, most likely a WB2X9154 (round style) ignitor. The entire burner can be removed rather easily at this point if you remove the two screws at the front and disconnect the ignitor wire (if you wish to have easier access to ignitor mounting screws.)

Flow plug


even though the ignitor seems to glow bright orange,it still maybe weak,as in not enough current to open the gas valve,an easy test is to just swap out or interchange the broiler ignitor and bake ignitors and see if this takes care of your issue on the lower bake side as most units use the identical ignitor for each upper and lower manifolds and the gas valve supplies both the bake and broiler manifolds depending on which you choose to use bake or broil

Hotpoint oven heats up barely, no indicqtor light: broiler heats up - notmhot


The broiler ignitor and the bake ignitor or intrchangeable. You could swap em out to see if the ignitor i weak OR just buy another igniotr. Observe the brightness of the broil ignitor to the bake one. The Bake one being dim is too weak to open the gas valve.

I have a G E Spectra gas stove and oven the gas oven doesn't work


does it not bake or broil? if this is the case, it could be the control panel. however if one or the other of the bake and broil functions work then it would most likely be an ignitor. check to see if your broil and bake ignitors glow. to access the bake ignitor you must remove the bottom panel from the oven but you can probaly see it gowing without removing the panel. the broil ignitor should be in plain sight.

My stove is not allowing to bake. The broil works


It would appear that the electric ignitor isn't functioning as it should and might need to be replaced.

You can remove the oven racks and the bottom oven floor to observe the ignitor. now turn the oven on and see if the ignitor glows, if not, the ignitor is faulty and needs to be replaced.

You can enter in your full model number at the following site and get the replacement part number (and price). If you're going to do the repair yourself, be sure to turn off the power or unplug the range from the power outlet before doing any work on it.

You'll need to pull the oven out so you can get at the backside panel where the electrical connections are located. There is also a screw on the inside of the oven that holds the lower iginitor in place. Simply remove and replace the faulty one with the new one and you should be fine.

If you want to confirm that the ignitor is the only issue, you can swap out the broiler ignitor with the oven (lower) ignitor, as they should be the same part for your range. If you swap them and the oven doesn't ignite, then the faulty part is probably either thermocouple that tells the gas inlet valve control, which lets gas enter into the oven. The thermocouple which tells the gas valve to open, once the ignitor has reached the proper temperature, so if the thermocouple isn't working, the gas valve won't open.

Here's a link that you can enter in your model number and get the parts list and a line drawing for your range. I think you're missing a few letters or numbers in your model#.

http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/getModel!retrieve.pd?modelNumber=JGBP90
My bet is on the ignitor as the faulty part, but the swap test will confirm that, and if the swap doesn't work, then the thermocouple is bad.

Hope you find this Very Helpful and best regards!

Bottom oven burner will not light


If your Kenmore is like most Whirlpool-built gas ranges, surface ignitors similar to those used in gas dryers are used. These devices have a conductive path fused to a ceramic substrate and are common failures. There are separate units for bake and broil burners.
Check the Sears website under the 'Parts' subsection and enter your range model number. This should bring up a choice of things to do and if you ask for the illustrated parts breakdown, you can see where the ignitor is located, get its part number, and generally order from that same site.  
It's mildly disturbing that the range continues to allow gas to flow unignited.

My broiler works - but the oven does not - GE Dual Fuel range


Thanks for providing the full model number, which allows us to look up part numbers and see exploded views of your product.
Most likely the bake ignitor is bad (even if it still glows, it may not draw enough amperage to allow the gas safety valve to open). One way you can test this on your model is to swap out the broil ignitor for the bake ignitor, as they are the same part number on your model. (part number WB13T10045) The broiler is normally used much less than the oven, so the part does not fail very often on the broiler. You will have to take the cover off the floor of the oven, then the flame spreader, to reach the burner area. The ignitor is the rectangular part at the back, on the side of the burner. (only two wires to deal with) (By the way, for future reference, your model number ends is SS, as in stainless steel, not a 55)

KENMORE GAS STOVE OVEN LOWER BURNER WON'T WORK


bad oven ignitor is the most common cause of bake failure, located onthe side of hte burner bar itself, if youd like with a multi-meter, you can check the wires leading to the ignitor for 110v. if you have power and nothing was glowing from ignitor theres your problem

Find the bake ignitor (you may need to remove bottom drawer or oven cavity floor to get to the ignitor). Turn on the bake. If the bake ignitor comes on (starts glowing after a few seconds) - check the amperage on the bake ignitor wires when it's on. If the ignitor is a round style - amperage should be 2.5-3A, if the ignitor is rectangular - 3 - 3.6A. If less than 2.5A or 3A respectively - replace ignitor. If the ignitor does not come on - check the voltage on the ignitor, should be the line voltage 110-120v AC. If there is a line voltage on the ignitor and it's not coming on - replace.
Ignitor part numbers for round style ones: 4342528, WB2X9154, SGR403, 5304401265;
rectangular styles: 12400035, WB13K21, WB2X9998, SGR412, NR020, 5303935066, 814269, 9753108.
Ignitors of the same shape (i.e. rectangular) are interchangeable, if you can splice the wires.

Good luck!
PS go to searspartsdirect.com, type in your model number for the exact replacement part number.

Oven, Broiler inopperable


Sandwich, is it your bake or broil thats not working? You have two ignitors, one for bake and broil. One of them is your culprit. This is not a hard job. The post header says broil not working so the part number for that is WB13K0003. Bake ignitor is WB13K0004. To get at the bake ignitor you have to remove the oven bottom inside panel, remove the flame spreader (both easy). The click you are hearing is the board relay sending power to the ignitor. The ignitor has to draw so many amps to open the gas valve. The oven is pilotless. Catriver..post back.

Oven will not heat up.


eerb, most likley your ignitor failed. When you turn the oven on to bake you should hear a relay click on the electronic control (clock). You can do a couple of things here. If you have a ohmmeter the ignitor should ohm out at between 50 and 150 ohms. You can physically swap out the bake and broil ignitors to see if the ignitor comes on in bake. Or you can swap the bake and broil wires on the board. They should be marked BA and BR. This way when you turn on bake, the broil ignitor should glow and verify you have power going to it. Carefull when testing, be sure to kill power to the range before any changes. Catriver...post back
