The oven will not ignite its a whirlpool model sf380pew


Hi


Thanks for using FixYa. The air holes on the side of the burner that faces the center of the stove may be clogged or holes near the oven are clogged which are leading to uncompleted combustion of the fuel and thus leading to the foul smell. This helps the pilot or spark igniter to light the gas. Try cleaning the holes with a toothpick.

Heating elements eventually burn out. Sometimes, when an element burns out, you can see that the coil burns in too, or blisters and bubbles.

When your heating element burns out, you have to replace it because they are not repairable. If, when the heating element burns out, the infinite switch that controls it also fails, you have to replace it too.

Igniter is made up of a crystal which gets damaged or distorted physically and wont work fine until replaced. This may lead to incomplete combustion of fuel and is a safety hazard.


Please do rate the solution and revert for further assistance.


Thanks

Oven does not light


first check the igniter to see the color of it. if it is orange you need to replace it because it is too weak to ignite. it needs to glow white hot. second, the burning smell could be from the coil, check the coils as well near the gas valve.

My kenmore gas oven won't heat. I turn to dial to temp i want can smell gas building up in oven and can see a glow in bottom of oven but will not ignite. Sometimes if I turn on a cooking eye I can then...


When the bake igniter becomes weak or burns out, your oven would not bake. The bake igniter is usually mounted on the oven burner. It's about 1 inch by 4-8 inches (depending on the model), and comes in round or flat styles. If you don't see the igniter glow at all, it's probably burned out. Replace the igniter if found defective. Note: one of the exceptions could be that your oven is set to automatic mode instead of manual. If this is the case, set your oven to manual mode and check again.

If the bake igniter glows red and not bright yellow or white, it is probably because it is too weak. When this happens, the safety valve would not let the gas out into the oven burner. A weak igniter must be replaced.

A faulty igniter is probably the most common cause, however there are others:

-- defective thermostat
-- defective selector switch
-- defective gas safety valve
-- defective gas valve coils

Oven not cooking evenly, outside is getting brown but inside is undercooked


Sounds like the igniter is not operating at full capacity. What happens is that the oven does not light when it should. Instead, the oven is cooling down much too far so when the oven does light it has too heat more rapidly. This causes the outside to brown/burn long before it should.
