Re: bottom burner in oven dose not work but top burner ...
Hello, The wire going to the bake element could be burned in two. Pull the range out and take the back off ( make sure you unplug it)., check the wire going to the bake element for any shorted, burned, or broken spots. The wire will lead all the way to the thermostat on the control panel. If the wire is good, you have a bad thermostat. The thermostat part number is. part # 74005019 price $98.97 This part is listed as NO LONGER AVAILABLE at the manufacturer so you should really get one as fast as you can, or it will be gone for good. I hope this will help. Mike Anderson Anderson Appliance Repair (865)945-3808

When increasing the temp. on a gas range the oven's burners do not increase flame size as the cooktop burners do. It just keeps the burner lighted for a longer amount of time.
First if you can see the burners do they light within about a min. or less. If no you probably have bad igniters which are not lighting the burners as quickly as they should or they are "opening up" (stops working) when they get too hot. In this case replacement of the igniters should solve the problem.
Second if it lights quickly but still takes a while to heat; you want to look at the burners to ensure that the flames are down both sides of the burner tube and not dancing around too much. If only part of the two sides of the burner tubes are lighted then a pluged orifice or burner tube is the most likely cause. Once cleaned it should work fine.
As with anything mechanical there are numurous possiblities for something not working correctly and above are the two most popular reasons that come to my mind.
possible hat the bottom elemnt has burnt out/broken/shorted. you would need to check the element for continuity witha power meter ifits not an obvius break.. BEWARE ALWAYS LIVE WIRELEADING TO THE BAKE ELEMNT TURN OFF POWER FIRST!!!!!!!
You need to tighten down the orifice spud for the bake burner. Remove drawer in bottom of oven. Look for bottom of burner tube, where the shutter adjustment is. Right below it is the orifice spud. Usually a goldish color. Take 1/2 inch open end wrench and tighten until it stops. Do-not overtighten! Try it now. If flames are still to high, tighten a little more. Repeat if needed.
Gowen, more than likley it's your ignitor that failed. Remove the ovens bottom panel by removing the 2 screws in back and lifting up. Remove the nut from the flame spreader and you will see the ignitor. Now turn the oven on and look at the ignitor, does it glow. Even if it does, it needs to draw at least 3.2 amps to open the gas valve. Part number for the ignitor is 5303935066. Easy job. Catriver...post back.
