Question about Kenmore 33464 / 33465 / 33469 Gas Single Oven
I have a gas oven,Kenmore with warm and ready drawer. I turn the oven on to cook and buttons light up that say "preheat" and "oven". oven gets some what warm but never hot and after 15 mins or more, the preheat light is still on and the oven light is Off.Occasionally if I turn it off and then back on, it will get up to the proper temp. broiler works fine.
This is what I would do: I would unplug the range and connect my test cord to your range cord. I use an ammeter along with my test cord to read the amp draw of the bake ignitor. If it cannot get above 3.5 amps I know the ignitor is bad or weak. Since the oven is working that means there is a good circuit. In order for the safety bi-metal to open the amp draw must reach 3.5 amps or better. So to me I am thinking bad ignitor. To get to it I remove the door oven racks and bottom, I then remove the flame spreader and unplug the quick connect to the ignitor. I remove the burner and ignitor and replace the ignitor on a work bench. I am too old to be bending over and trying to do any parts replacement inside an oven. LOL. I have a training film which shows how the silicone carbide ignitor works HERE. Post a model number and I may have a service manual, do not forget to rate the answer.
