Sounds as if this is gas. The igniter has gone bad which is located under the bottom panel inside your oven at the burner assembly. Even if it may glow orange it is not sending enough amps to the gas valve, Replace the ignitor.

Any ideas as to why gas valve wont open


Usually that the thermocouple is worn out. It is a small metal tube that sits in the flame and tells the gas valve that the pilot is alight and hot and the valve can be opened. Call in a gas technician.

I have a kenmore self cleaning gas oven. the pilots light, the broil kicks on, but preheat won't start. what can i do?


Ok well heres the deal. I'm assuming that because this is a self cleaning oven then its probably fairly new in which case you probably don't have actual pilot lights on there but "glowbars" which are called ignitors. If this is the case, and you can see your ignitors for the bake and broil both glowing then chances are you have a weak bake ignitor. If the ignitor is not getting hot enough, then it will not send enough current to the gas valve to energize it (allowing it to open and let gas in). If its not glowing at all you can just get a voltage detector (you can buy them at walmart for about 10 bucks) turn the oven on and use your wand to see if the ignitor is getting power. If it is then its going to actually be open or shorted.

Overall deal is that 95/100 times if you have a gas oven with ignitors and its not baking its and bad or weak ignitor. They cost about 60-90 bucks.

If your oven does indeed have a pilot light then you will have a bad thermocouple or possibly obstructed burner tube.

Hope this helps _MJ_

Self cleaning


Never use spray cleaners in a self clean oven it will void your warranty and possibly ruin the oven. it sounds like what may have happened is the fumes from the spray ignited inside the oven and may have blown out the pilot light if your using gas.
or maybe replace the thermocouple. sorry, hope that helps.

Self cleaning oven directions


Press the self-clean button.  The panel becomes blank(---), then press the up arrow( ^ ).  The panel will appear 3:00 (indication for the duration of self-cleaning). The oven will lock on its own and start the self-cleaning.  Good luck, ya'll!
