Question about Kenmore 75844 / 75849 Gas Kitchen Range

1 Answer

Burners don't receive gas though oven/broiler does

The burners on my Kenmore 665.7584 gas range aren't getting any gas at all, although the broiler and oven light up fine. (Even if I leave the burners on high for a while, I smell no gas from them, nor will a lighter light them, so it's not the ignition system, I don't think.) Is there a valve or something between oven and burners that I need to turn? Help!?

    Thank you - that was exactly the problem! We figured it out on our own later in the night (by following the gas line to the solenoid, where the gas stopped) but I would have been better off waiting for your excellent reply... :)

Tommi, this model has a cooktop lock-out solenoid feature. Try pressing and holding the top light keypad for 5 seconds and see if the top comes back to life. If not, check your owners manual, it may be a different key. The lock-out solenoid is in the back behind the outer panel. The cooktop lockout valve has been redesigned from a AC to DC voltage because of complaints of chattering. The new part number is 8184768. Lets hope you don't need it and just have the top locked out.

How to Troubleshoot a Gas Range Oven That Won't Heat

Although gas range oven may prove useful for cooking and baking, they may fail to ignite if they aren't properly maintained and set up. Lighting a gas range often involves simply turning a knob; however, blockages from food particles and debris caught in the burners, improper burner cap installation and gas supply are common problems that interfere with your gas range oven's performance. A few troubleshooting guidelines may solve these problems safely.

      Inspect the small vertical holes on the side of your burners for dirt, food and debris. The gas won't ignite if they are clogged. Scrape dirt, debris and food from the vertical holes using a pointy object such as a toothpick or paperclip.

      Reinstall the burner caps properly. If they are tilted or wobbly, the gas may not ignite. Install the caps on the right burners. Some burners are smaller than others, so match the caps to the appropriate burners.

      Move the burner knob to the "Lite" position and wait for the gas to ignite. If it ignites, rotate the knob to your desired setting. If it doesn't ignite, contact a qualified appliance technician.
