Burners n broiler lite up fine, oven will not .... pilot out?

Does it have electronic ignition or pilot. You don't say. Check the thermocouple. That is usually why most ovens fail even when overhead broiler works. The Thermocouple is a probe that heats up either by pilot or igniter and turns the gas on when it reaches the proper temperature. You can sometime take a little steel wool and clean off the probe..sometimes that will do it. Make certain you are cleaning the thermocouple and not the thermostat probe.. Thermocouples are right near the burner itself. If that does not work you will need a new one.. some screw out and can be replaced.. others may be sealed to the gas manifold. You will then have to call a repair man to replace it.

Gas oven/broiler won't light


If neither the bake nor the broiler heating elements heat, but the range burners still work, the clock may be set for a timed or self-cleaning cycle. Check to be sure the clock buttons and knobs are set properly. If your clock has a knob that says "push for man(ual)", push the knob in and try the baking and broiling elements again. If it still does not operate properly, you probably have a defect in the thermostat, selector switch, or common wiring.

If the oven does not have a separate bake/broil/etc. selector switch, the problem may be with the thermostat. But it's not easy to check the selector switch or thermostat for proper operation. If you suspect a problem in this area, call a qualified appliance repair technician.

My Kenmore gas oven sporadically takes forever (30+ min. to heat up to 350 degrees). Sometimes it works fine, & other times it takes at least 1/2 an hour. Also, I periodically smell natural gas when I...

Sounds like a weak ignitor. If it doesn't get hot enough to allow the proper amperage through to the gas valve, you will have this symptom.

GE JBP30 oven bottom element not working after being replaced

I would be looking at the bake relay on teh coven control board. Using a voltage meter test the output voltage when energizing the bake feature. Be sure to remove the bake element wire coming from the bake element to the control. Test this terminal without the bake element wire attached. From the terminal with one meter probe to the neutral on the terminal block (where your cord attaches to), you should read 110 volts when energized and 0 voltge when shut off. What are you reading? If I can help further, I am here.....

Waiting to hear from you,
