My wife cooked pies ok Wed. morning. She then used the self cleaning function with no problems. All in the A.M.. That evening she tried to light the oven to bake cookies for Thanksgiving, the oven wouldn't light. The stop TIME KNOB is pushed in, She has never used this function before but I checked it to eliminate that possibility. Our oven is a Kenmore Model # 911-7398510 Serial # 5164308. Purchase date 6-10-1985. The previous owner kept the Owners Manual,Bless her heart. Please help with any suggestions. Is there a way to test the ignitor? I have some electronic troubleshooting knowledge. I can't afford new. Any tips or hints greatly appreciated!!!! Thank You.

Re: burners light ok, oven will not light
Stop time knob needs to be out; you set it for timed bake. I cannot see your reply due to some tech issue w/ the site, so it may be a day or so before I can reply again. Please leave feedback for me if appropriate. Thanks

The oven temperature is regulated by a temperature sensor when placed in self clean the sensor is removed from the circuit and full power is applied to both the bake and broil elements causing an the temperature to exceed in some some models up to 1,000 F. I would recommend against using self clean for the simple fact that no oven cavity to this date has been designed to withstand that high of a temperature and therefore excess heat is passed upward resulting in damaged lock mechanisms, control boards, and other electronic components. The most common complaint I have had with built in ovens besides the element burning out, is the oven door locked shut. When I get to the house and I ask to tell me a little bit of whats going on the story always starts " well, I was using the self clean option" or some variation of the sort.
I don't see the make and model number of your unit. I only see part of your post. Please post the make and model number. It should be a simple fix. From what I do see in your post, it sounds like the control board will need to be replaced. Regards,Richard
the bulb i am sure is ok . but you have had a power failure to the burner . it could be the burner itself . if all the burners do not work the power to the range may be the problem .. ck the main fuse and make sure the 220 power is ok mm
We had the same thing happen and now they came and said it was the clock that needs to be replaced. They said that controls the oven. Even though clock is on and working the function for turning on the oven is not
you either have a gas pressure problem from your meter outside or a bad pressure regulator on the range. if you use a magnehelic guage (get from a plumming supply house) you should be getting about 11inches of water coloum, or you can call your gas company to check it out... Let me know how it goes.
i have an old model of the fridgedare gallery professional series stove. After self cleaning, the ignition sparks for the burners will not come off, they keep clicking and only stops when i pull out the plug. can you help me with this situation?
Simply set the Clock and Delay Start to the current time, then set the Stop Time ahead 3 hours. For example, if it is currently 8:00 then set the Stop Time to 11:00. The lights on the console will come on and the cleaning cycle will begin. At some point during the cycle when the oven gets hot enough, the lock mechanism is "fixed" and will not release until the cycle is complete.
