Re: Broiler Works/Oven Doesn't

Jrzy, even though you can see the bake igniter glowing, that doesn't mean it's good. Igniters actually get weak (unlike a light bulb that simply burns out). It's hooked up in series to a safety valve (the valve that allows main gas into the oven) which actually reads the amps flowing through the igniter. If the igniter is weak and the amps are too low, the valve won't open up. Replace your igniter and you'll be cookin' with gas again. Tip---> before you unscrew your old igniter, put a little liquid dish soap on the threads for lubrication. This'll ensure it comes out with no problems.

Oven Stopped Working..

It sounds like the igniter. The oven is not getting a spark to turn on, and heat up. We had the same problem, but changed the igniter, and it works fine. Good luck!

Kenmore gas oven; range&broiler work, not bake cycle-bad ignitor?

Well there are other parts that control the igniter,but if you can remove the igniter and look for any cracks.Most are hard to find so you may need a magnifying glass.Any crack no matter how small will keep it from glowing.The gas will not flow until the photo senser has detected the igniter glowing for several seconds.You can get a parts breakdown at hope this helps.

My Kenmore oven wont ignite. The broiler works

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

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,,, or 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.
