Question about Ovens
I TURN ON THE KNOB TO BROIL, AND IT WILL NOT GET HOT. I CHECKED TO SEE IF IT GETS HOT ON A BAKE SETTING AND NO TEMP INCREASE IS NOTED. THE TOP BURNERS DO WORK AND THERE IS NO GAS SMELL WHEN OVEN/BROILER IS TURNED ON. COULD IT BE THE REGULATOR OR ELECTRIC PILOOT IGNITION TO RUN THE OVEN/ BROILER?
See this instructions and fix it. God bless you
How to Troubleshoot a Gas Range Oven That Won't Heat
By Kefa Olang, eHow Contributor
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.

Things You'll Need
Check you have gas in your tank if your gas range oven won't heat. Contact your gas supplier if you've run out of gas.
Clean the burners if you have gas but your burners still won't ignite. To clean the burners, lift the burner caps
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.

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?

Most likely a hot-surface ignitor has failed. If it doesn't consume enough current, the gas valve won't open. It's usually a fairly easy fix, once you gain access to the ignitor and have a new one to replace it with. Make sure you unplug the range...

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

If the bake ignitor comes on (starts glowing) - check the amperage on
the bake ignitor wires when it's on. If the ignitor is a round style -
amperage should be 2.5-3A, if the ignitor is rectangular - 3 - 3.6A. If
than 2.5A or 3A respectively - replace ignitor. If the ignitor does not
come on - check the voltage on the ignitor, should be the line voltage
110-120v AC. Faulty gas valve is uncommon, but still a
small possibility. Ignitor part numbers for round style ones: 4342528,
WB2X9154, SGR403, 5304401265;
rectangular styles: 12400035, WB13K21, WB2X9998, SGR412, NR020, 5303935066, 814269, 9753108.
Ignitors of the same shape (i.e. rectangular) are interchangeable, if you can splice the wires.

Error F10 appears due to a faulty oven temperature sensor or faulty wiring on the oven temperature sensor. F10 indicates that the control detects a runaway temperature in the oven. If this error is appearing when the oven is at high temperatures then it is due to a faulty relay on the electronic control board. If this fault code appears when the oven is at room temperature, then the failure points to a failed oven temperature sensor probe circuit or a bad electronic oven control board.
To check this you’ll need to use a multimeter, the resistance of temperature sensor should be around 1100-1200 ohms. If it is above 2000 ohms then the sensor has turned bad. However, if the reading is between the specified range then check the wiring harness connection directly at the electronic oven control board (with the range still unplugged). If the wiring is perfect then you would need to replace the electronic control board. Hope this helps... If it does please do not forget to accept the solution or post back for assistance.
