I turn on the stove and about a minute later it shakes the side of the house and lights. Heats well and works fine after doing this. It's a kenmore and about thirteen years old. What could be happening.

There could be expansion issues with the oven. When the oven heats up the sides or bottom could be flexing causing this. If it is a gas range with an oven igniter it could be the igniter is getting weak and the gas is not lighting right away and causes a small explosion when it does light. If it has an igniter look to see how bright it is. If it is orange in color it is probably the problem. They should glow a bright yellow. If the igniter has never been changed it could be the problem. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: Gas stove. Oven won't

Hi,

Welcome to FixYa.

Based on your description, "Oven won't light/heat. Broiler does still work" the hot surface ignitor for the bake burner is likely the problem.

Here's what you can try to varify if it's indeed the ignitor...if you're mechanically inclined.

**Turn off the breaker or unplug the range and turn off the gas to the appliance before attempting any service...safety first**

if the boiler has the same ignitor ( some do some don't ) one could swape the ignitor`s ( very carefully, they are very fragile and don`t like to be handled ) this will allow you to use the bake burner, but it will leave you without the broil function...until you have a diagnosis and can purchase another.

This will confirm or dismiss if the ignitor is at fault...99% of the time this is the case.

You should be able to find one at most brick & mortar appliance parts vendors or on-line depot's such as "repairclinic.com", "searspartsdirect.com" to name a couple.

You can ask for part number 12400035, That is the most common ignitor and is for Maytag, but built by "Norton" for gas oven`s.

I would still double check with your model number with the part`s professional`s.

Hope that help`s. Let me know if I can assist you further and good luck.

Thank`s for visiting "fixya" for your repair needs.

I have kenmore c880 model stove , both oven and stove are not heating up after shifting to new house...any tips to get it resolved? Only oven light is working.


Make sure there is 220 volts at the wall socket where you plug the oven into. A faulty circuit breaker in the power panel on your house will only let 110 volts get to the oven so the lights and timers will work but not the heating elements.

I put my kenmore oven on to clean.I PRESS CLEAN AND THAN START.THE DOOR LOCKED AND THE CLEAN LIGHT CAME ON.AFEW SECOND LATER I HEARD BEEP BEEP AND ERR-F9.GOT MY BOOK OUT AND FOUND NO ANSWER.SO I CALL...


The F9 code indicates there is a problem with the door lock.

Try disconnecting the power to the range for 10 seconds and reconnecting. Open the oven door and hold the door switch plunger in while you try these things. Put the control into clean for 5 minutes then cancel clean. You must hold the door switch plunger in for the 5 minutes.

Try canceling the clean cycle without putting the control into clean.

Bake and Broil not working


After you hit the function you want...bake or broil...click the up arrow.  That should give you the default temp of 350 and the unit should light.  Now adjust to the temp you want.

Kenmore ultrabake lights up when stove top is on but wont heat up


Hard to know...First thing I'd check is the power supply to the unit.  Turn off both breakers.  Check wiring all the way through for tightness.  Turn both breakers on.  Next, you'll need to check the elements for continuity...with the power off.
