First, check to make sure gas is actually getting to the range and hasn't been stopped by a clog or simply shut off accidentally. Next, make sure the120v AC is present. If you verify that gas *is* reaching the range and there is 120 volts getting to the range, then the main gas valve is next in line(where the gas line connects). The part numbers for the main valves in the range are:
8523378, gas shut-off
8054079, gas valve
I hope this helps you!
Hello, Their is 2 possible things that are causing the oven to not heat.
1) the pilot burner is clogged with build up and not burning corretly...the standing pitol light is small and when the oven is turned on the pilot enlarges and heats a small bulb connected to a tube on a gas valve,if the pilot burner is clogged it will burn the small pilot but will not enlarge to heat that bulb so the gas will flow to the main burner.If that is whats happening the pilot burner needs to be replaced.
2) the pilot burner is properly heating the bulb connected to the above mentioned gas valve but that gas valve is bad and not opening once the pilot has heated the bulb..so in that case that gas valve would need to be replaced
There are actually two pilot lights to light, (maybe three) Under the top there would be the old style flash back tubes leading from two burners to a pilot. This small flame stays lit while the gas is on. When you turn a burner on some gas flows back through the tube and flashes or lilghts the burner. When you turn the gas on there is always gas through the pilots, unless shut off with the little set screws if you follow the lines. From the factory these are on and open. Small set screws also adjust pilot flame size. THe other pilot for the oven is down by the main burner. There is a small cap tube from the gas valve to a holder just under the burner. This is where it is lit.......... There is another line to the thermostat when you lturn it on that opens more gas to increase the pilot to a biggger flame to open the gas valve burner assembly. .Also ranges usually come set for natural gas, and you have to do spud adjustments, regulator, air flow only if you want to change to lp...... Put a new flex line on, and be careful with gas...........
In general lets be clear. The OVEN pilot is located under the oven door at the top of the Broiler.It is a small piece of metal just before the GAS safety Valve which acts on temperature so gas won't flow unless Pilot is lit,That's the OVEN PILOT.The stove's RANGE is the top burners where you heat Pots and Pans.It has either 2 Pilot lights that connect the burners to the Flame they are under the Range Top.Newer Models use electronic ignitions no flame.Please note if you had your stove/oven disconected or Gas off when you turn it back on there will be air in the line that needs to escape before you light.This is why in NYC when Utility Co.works on steet main the MUST re-light your appliances.Be Careful with Gas.Good Luck.
First, I'm not a Kenmore Tech.
* call vendor for service. Gas leaks are hazardous and require a qualified tech to service.
*** The following is for information only.***
* I've always had problems servicing gas stove, heaters, boilers, etc. Lots of unique components that require special tools to service.
* I was surprised to find out that it's better to call on your local Gas Supplier for service. The not only check the supply line but also have a very good working experience with all types of gas fired equipment.
* Slow pilot lighting or burner fire usually means a clogged gas vent or valve. If other burners are working fine, then it's just that particular burner.
* If all burners have the same symptom then it could be a number of things.
* Check gas mains for pressure and flow (you need a gas meter for this but if you have another stove on the same line then it's probable that the mains are okay. Unless the connector or shutoff valve is not working properly (partial open).
* Check gas hose to stove for kinks. Replace if bent (re bending will crack a metal hose.)
* Check the gas regulator (again, need a gas meter)
* Check the feed and branches for gas. If pilot lights are not on then there is a good indication that your not getting gas to that section. (or the pilot is clogged) Clean, clear, or replace pipes/parts.
* Check valve on each burner. This is the most used item on the stove. Expect it to wear out. Replace as needed.
* Final, Be safe; Call your Gas company or MFR tech for service.
