Oven will not come on.

The oven will not come on, on my gas Kenmore gas range. The igniter for the burner also will not come on. I have power to the leads going to it but like I say it does not get hot. Do you know what my problem might be.

Re: Oven will not come on.

If you have power to the ignitor but it doesn't come on then the ignitor is bad and will need to be replaced. Good job on checking for power to the ignitor first.

I have no heat coming from the oven portion of my kenmore 790 electric range after hearing a "pop" sound. fyi, the element looks intact.

Top burners are working, broiler is working, bottom oven burners dont ignite and dont heat the oven? What can we do?

Hi i have a kemore gas range that the bake ingiter or broil won`t

The igniter in the oven does not spark. It heats up and glows red hot until enough current opens the safety gas valve to the burner. It is not associated with the stovetop burners. Replace the oven igniter itself.

I have a kenmore stove 362.7361193 pilot not on

There isn't a pilot light on MOST modern gas ranges. The top burners are controlled by individual igniters through a common spark module. The oven, however, is controlled by an igniter on each manifold. One for bake, one for broil. If you are having problems with ONE of the oven features, I would suspect a bad igniter. If BOTH oven features are bad, you may have a bad Electronic Oven Control (EOC) board. If the oven works, but none of the surface burners are working, I would suspect a bad spark module. The following link explains a little theory on oven igniters:

Since your range appears to have a common gas safety valve and regulator, all burners are fed fromthe same gas source. Which means, if you have ANY burners lighting, you probably don't have a gas problem.

I hope you can determine what your problem is from the information I provided. If not, please post back and elaborate a bit more on your symptoms so that I may assist you better. I hope this helps you.

Kenmore Gas Range/Freestanding/ Electronic Ignition

I have an electronic ignition Kenmore Gas Range. The Model Number is 790.78573407.

Am getting the error code F93 in the oven control panel. The manual says the likely cause is "Maximum oven door lock time exceeded". When I plug the oven the "door lock light" flashes and then the "F93" error code flashes. Am not able to use the bake or broil.
