HI THERE DEE WHEN U SWITCH ON YOUR OVEN DOES
1 THE FAN MOTOR IN THE OVEN ROTATE AND RUN
2 DOES THE OVEN HERMOSTAT TEMPERATURE LIGHT COME ON.
IF THE ANSWER TO THE 2 QUESTIONS IS YES THEN YOUR MAIN OVEN ELEMENT HAS BLOWN AND REQUIRES REPLACEMENT.
HOPE THIS HELPS

You most likely have a defective oven ignitor. Even if it IS glowing, (orange) it may not be creating the proper resistance to open the gas valve to the oven burner. Once the ignitor is replaced, your oven should come on within 30-45 seconds after you set temperature.

Hello mrstrini2 - Do you have an electric or gas range? Most fault codes consist of both letters and numbers. Could you provide me the code to better address the issue at hand?

Kenmore Gas Range. Top burners work fine. Oven is slow to preheat. Igniter has a yellow glow and the burner lights within about 20-30 seconds later. However, the burner has a very small flame and it takes...


the ignitor should glow bright orange.it sounds like you have a weak ignitor but if the flame lites within 20 to 30 seconds it sounds like it's ok,it could be braking down though when it gets hot,it doesn't matter if it glows,it has to be putting out 3.2 amps,if you have an amp meter with a clamp on it you can read out the amps,if the broiler works ok i would change out the ignitor,then follow the tube down to the bottom and stick a paper clip in the orifice hole where the gas comes out and make sure that's clear,also there's a shutter on the tube to adjust the air flow,see if it's closed,it's usually almost wide open,check the tube to make sure the ignitor didn't burn a hole through it.i've found tubes with holes in them from a lazy ignitor,most of the time if there's a problem it will be the ignitor

Oven appears to start, takes forever to preheat,


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.
