    Forgot to tell you. That the night before the power went out. Called a company and they said unplug for about 1 hour and than try it. So, I did and it works now. But thanks anyway. I really will let people know about this neat space. Thanks

First check your breakers, then the wiring from the receptacle to the back of the oven. Check to see if the wires are properly fastened inside the plug itself. Now, in the back of the oven with the back panel off, see it the wires are properly fastened to the connection box. This is probably where your problem is. Re-attach and this should make everything fine. If you wish, you can me at 803 463 5567 and we talk your way through it.

The oven safety valve
(also called the gas valve) is the part that ensures that gas is not released until the igniter has reached the correct temperature needed to ignite the gas. While this part can fail, it is uncommon. If the hot surface igniter does not glow you should first verify that you have voltage to the circuit. This is a live voltage check and should be performed by a qualified person. If voltage is lost at the valve terminals then you should verify the continuity of the bi-metal in the valve using a multi-meter.

The oven burner igniter
commonly known as the hot surface igniter is used in modern gas oven burners to open the gas valve and to ignite the gas. As the igniter draws electric current it will heat to a high temperature and glow, as well as cause the bi-metal in the oven safety valve to warp and open the valve releasing the gas to be ignited. This sequence normally takes about a minute. Igniters come in both flat and round styles and are very fragile. If the burner does not light then you should check the igniter first. If the igniter does not glow at all, then check for power to the circuit. This is a live voltage check and should be performed by a qualified person. If power is present then the igniter may be open circuit and can be checked for continuity with a multi-meter. If the igniter is glowing, but the burner is not lighting, the igniter may be weak and still be at fault because it requires a certain amount of current draw to open the valve. This check requires the use of an amp meter and should be performed by a qualified person. If the igniter is defective then it must be replaced.

Oven quit working . Stove top burners work just


if its an electric start. then the problem is usually the ignitor for oven. if you change this yourself, be carefull they are very fragil. hold on to igniter by its base. slide ignitor into steel case then install. and hook up the 2 wires for ignitor.

I have a kenmore electric stove. The top burner


I have the same problem, it turns out that the clock has a sensor in it to turn on the oven. If that sensor is not working, which is found in the clock, the oven does not work. I had a repair guy come out and it will cost 350.00 to repair. My stove is only six years old. It is only two months to the day off warranty. Apparently a power outage can cause the sensor to go. Hope this helps.
