Hole in Bake Tube Kenmore oven....

My oven refused to turn on, I went to change the igniter (broiler worked fine) and after removing the bake igniter, noticed that it had arced a large hole in the bake tube. Can you tell me how hard it is to change out this bake tube and how to do it. I found the bolt inside the oven near the front, what secures it at the back, is it just the two bolts that it looks like I can access from under the oven, or is their some kind of gasket/seal?
thanks, model number is 362.75481891

Kenmore electric oven will not bake


The bake element
is the heating element that is found at the bottom of the oven. Most electric ovens use both the bake element and the broil element in a bake cycle, with the bake element performing 90% of the heating. If the bake element isn't working, the oven may not heat. To help determine if the bake element is defective you should first do a visual check. If the element is blistered or separated then it should be replaced. If the element appears to look normal, then turn the oven on to a bake function for a minute and then turn it off.

Check the element for signs of heating and if it is still cold then it may be defective. Disconnect the power and then remove the back panel. First check the wires as they may have become loose or corroded. If the element appears to be fine visually, test it for continuity with a multi-meter. If the element is burned or no longer has continuity, it will need to be replaced.

My kenmore gas oven won't heat. I turn to dial to temp i want can smell gas building up in oven and can see a glow in bottom of oven but will not ignite. Sometimes if I turn on a cooking eye I can then...


When the bake igniter becomes weak or burns out, your oven would not bake. The bake igniter is usually mounted on the oven burner. It's about 1 inch by 4-8 inches (depending on the model), and comes in round or flat styles. If you don't see the igniter glow at all, it's probably burned out. Replace the igniter if found defective. Note: one of the exceptions could be that your oven is set to automatic mode instead of manual. If this is the case, set your oven to manual mode and check again.

If the bake igniter glows red and not bright yellow or white, it is probably because it is too weak. When this happens, the safety valve would not let the gas out into the oven burner. A weak igniter must be replaced.

A faulty igniter is probably the most common cause, however there are others:

-- defective thermostat
-- defective selector switch
-- defective gas safety valve
-- defective gas valve coils

GE oven bake igniter is bad ?


Yes, it should work fine to swap them. (fortunately the bake and broil igniters are often the same part number on GE gas ranges, as as opposed to many other brands) Of course now you broil will not work, but you should be able to get your oven going again.

Kenmore oven wont work


Hi, The most common issue when the oven doesn't work is the ignitor. You can open the door and remove the floor panel inside the oven. Start the bake and see if the ignotor glows. It probibly will but, that doesn't mean it is ok. It just means the ignitor is getting voltage. When the ignitor is glowing, you can try (BE CAREFULL not to be to close to the buner) and tap on the side of the gas valve with the handle of a screwdriver. If the gas ignites, you will need to change that ignitor.
Again, this is very common.
Please let me know if this helps you or if I can assist you further.

My Kenmore oven wont ignite. The broiler works


The problem is your bake ignitor. The following link explains:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r401858-replacing_oven_igniter_gas_range

The bake and broil oven features each have their own separate igniters and operate independently of one another. That explains why the broiler still works. They are, however, fed from the same gas source. So...the logical conclusion would be to replace your bake igniter (the no glowing is usually a dead give-away).

Replacements can be purchased on line at searspartsdirect.com, appliancepartspros.com, pcappliancerepair.com, or repairclinic.com. Prices can vary amongst sites, so shop around for the best price. The sites I provided to you, I found, tend to offer the best service and prices.

If you have questions along the way, or require addtional service, please let me know. I hope you find this information helpful.

Kenmore electrical oven


Trying to better define the problem....

Do you have any cuts, holes or "shorting" or tin-foil/aluminum around your bottom bake heat-element? If so, you may need to replace the baking Heat Element. (Ensure you do not use aluminum foil around your heat element to prevent your oven from getting dirty)

To replace your baking heat element, with power off; remove 2 screws securing the bake element. Slightly tug and pull towards you for about 3 inches or so and disconnect the connecting wires at each end. Then completely remove the heat element and install new in reverse manner. Whats' you're model number?
