If this is a gas unit then it could be caused by a gas/air ratio mixture problem, advise you get a qualified engineer to call, this could be potetially dangerous if you get a gas build up. Regards Engineer

Why won't my gas oven light. This only happens occasionally. And when the oven won't light, I can still get the broiler to come on.

Kenmore gas range model #790-77471790 oven stopped working...broiler and stove top still work

If the oven has stopped working but the broiler continues to work, it would imply that the bottom heater is broken. When you are using the oven, both the heater for the broiler and the bottom heater are at use. The broiler only uses the top heater.

My oven experiences sudden ignition, almost like a small explosion, or very loud puff, sometimes there is even a smell of gas just prior. it is not repeatable either. I observed the igniter heat and light...

The ignitor for the oven is different from the broiler one. It is now time to replace that one also.... a faulty ignitor will do crazy things...

Check out this tip I wrote about this..

Sf195lehz5 free standing gas oven,

Check both gas valve solonoids for 216 ohms [blue broiler wire to the orange common and red oven wire to orange common] both must be ok.

Check oven temp sensor for 1080 ohms.

If above are ok then the problem is either the spark module or the control board.

Since the gas valve was not opening and there was not ignitor sound I replaced the spark module for about $90. You have a 50-50 chance of being right.

My range is relitively new and I'm haveing an oven light problem which I traced to the control board so I may replaced this board to for about $200.

Ge profile

let me understand, you p[lug in you oven and the broiler will automaticalle start??? not allowing you to cancel???? if that s the case unplug and remove the back panel from tyhe range, sound sas if the wire leading to the broil ignitor has shorted itself against the cabinet of the range itself, look for whiter braided wires at broiler hieght, chances arte they are hitting against hte cabinet right near the vent area.
