Question about Ovens
362 75980891 I have the Kenmore Gas Range 362 75980891 that has an issue with the oven. When you turn on the oven, it takes about 1/2 hour to actually begin to heat up, and when it does start to heat it sounds like a blower that blows for different amounts of time and then the sound goes away and the oven begins to heat. The questions I have are 1. What is causing this? Obviously some part has worn out but I do not know what 2. Is the gas being feed all that time that it takes before the oven actually heats up? 3. Is the oven going to blow up as it seems this would be a step in that direction. Is it worth it to fix the issue or just purchase a replacement range?

You probably need an oven igniter, it's weak. Remove oven bottom and find caged unit attached to burner. Replace this oven igniter. The 2 wires can go either way.

I have the same oven and the same thing happened to me. I had to change out the heating element to Ignite the lower baking part. Trying to change it out is another story. I used metal snips to "open" the rear part to change it out. I was not ready to take apart the whole oven. The Part cost about 75$ from a part store, and the connections are easy. Hope this helped.

It appears your clock has failed in this instance.
For replacement parts - head on over to PartSelect.com or RepairClinic.com and enter in your full model number for a full parts listing.
I recommend both sites because ...
FixYa has no affiliation with either site - I have been using and recommending them for years - trouble free.
PartSelect has a great schematic database for locating the part on your unit and great "testimonials" for each part that often times includes HOW-TO information.
RepairClinic has pictures of each part they sell and also a great how-to and troubleshooting for basic repairs.
If your unit has never been serviced - there should still be an original service manual enclosed in plastic taped to the inside of the shell.
In the service manual are Error codes, maintenance procedures, and troubleshooting steps you can follow.
Anything too complicated or beyond your scope should be handled by a professional.
If you think you want to tackle the repair - and have gotten stuck on a step - reply to your question and I will be glad to help you out.
Thanks for using FixYa - a 4 THUMBS rating is appreciated for answering your FREE question.
