Question about Kitchen Ranges
On 9/03/07 we ran the self clean on our kenmore 9242 and now the bottom heat element doesn't work. Everything else is fine and no error codes come up. The wires and element seem to Ohm out fine.
Same problem here. Looking for solution..

We have the same problem. Broiler ignites fine and turns on and works fine but the bottom will not come on. AS POSTED BY: JSROCK516 This usually is an indication of a bad igniter. If this is the standard glow type igniter, it could appear as if it is working, but may not be providing enough current to open the gas valve. This is a safety feature on gas ovens. The gas valve requires a current potential of .32 to .37 amps through the igniter before it will open and allow gas to flow. This prevents gas leakage if the igniter fails to light. The reason your broiler works is probably due to the fact that the broiler gets used less and the igniter is probably in better condition. You can test this theory, if you like, by swapping the igniter for the bake and broil burners to see if the symptoms change. Or, you can simply just replace the bake igniter with a new one. Make sure you secure the power before attempting, though. You shouldn't have to turn off the gas for this. Chances are that's all it is. I hope this helps you.
