Kenmore oven doesn't light, replaced igniter and may have created a 2nd problem

Kenmore oven Model number 3627391594 doesn't light, replaced ignitor and tested ok when touching leads to oven wire, then shorted (flash of light) when separating for final installation. 2nd new igniter doesn't work at all. Is there a fuse that may need replacing or could this new problem be something else?

    Thank you very much for your reply. I will do just that. Is this a specialty part, or can I simply purchase one from Sears?

If you follow the igniter wire harness, you will see a little relay in there that will probably need to be replaced.

Kenmore gas oven 790.7862 will not light but broiler does, igniter works does not seem to get any gas


HI,
Just because the ignitors glow doesn't mean the work. With that being said, the ignitors sold job is to ignite the gas and open the safety valve to release gas. I the ignitors are weak (common) they will not allow the gas to be released. So without a amperage meter, you will be unable to see this. With one you can detect a weak ignitor with reading of (2.8 or lower), to function properly you need readings of (3.2 - 3.6).
When the ignitor is questionable, replace them, most units have two.
Good Luck

My Kenmore gas oven does not light.


Remove the oven Racks. Remove the oven base plate. Turn the oven on. You can then see the oven ignitor next to the oven burner. If the oven ignitor does not glow a bright orange,replace it. About a $90 part.

Broiler light, oven wont


You are probably right though often the ignitor will glow, but just not hot enough for the valve to open. I would definitely try replacing the ignitor first, it is much cheaper than the gas valve and those valves rarely go bad. It is possible that the thermostat is not sending 120V to the valve, and thus the ignitor but less likely.

The igniter may need to be replaced again. The only way to know is to test it to see if it has enough amperage to light the gas. If it glows, but no lighting of the gas, get it tested.
