I have a kenmore range. The problem that I am having is that the oven will not come on and the electronic area to set the temp to the oven will not come on. The Stove Top will work but that is it. Please...


THERE IS A WHAT I CALL A GLOW PLUG IN THE BOTTOM OF THE OVEN . WHEN YOU FIRST TURN YOUR OVEN ON THIS PLUG SHOULD GLOW RED AND VERY BRIGHT, IF IT DOESN'T YOU WILL HAVE TO REPLACE THIS ITEM AND THAT SHOULD FIX YOUR PROBLEM. WHEN YOU FIRST TURN THE OVEN ON THIS GLOW PLUG HAS TO GENERATE A LOT OF HEAT TO LET THE GAS VALVE KNOW THE IT IS OK TO OPEN IF THE GAS VALVE DOESN'T GET THIS SIGNAL FROM THE GLOW PLUG THE OVEN WILL NOT COME ON

The Glow Plug is glowing, but oven will not light up.


Hi,

This may sound strange but it is most often the glow plug that is bad. What happens is as the ignitor (glow plug) ages the resistance internally rises, this rise gets to a point where it limits the electrical current just enough that the valve no longer opens.

Igniter comes on but gas won't light


It should glow almost a bright white. If its just an orange glow then replace the ignitor. Its probably just weak. If its weak it will not allow enough current to flow through it to open the gas valve. Good luck _MJ_

Glow plug works and is very bright


Current. When the glow plug gets hot enough the rectangular plugs draw about 3.6 amps as read on an ampmeter. The older, round ones are closer to 3.1 amps. When you think it's "orange" enough tap the gas valve with something non-conductive. If the current is close it will open.

If current is above the amps listed above and valve is not opening it's likely the valve is bad.

Oven burner doesnt light


Doubt that the glow plug is bad. Gas only needs about 1100 degree F. to ignite using the glow plug method. It really seems as if there may be no gas getting to the burner. If there is no flame, you should be able to smell gas. If there is no gas smell, then I would look for the obvious such as: is the gas turned on?, Does the gas valve on the unit have a safety that is tripped? and so on. A new gas valve may be in order but make sure that it is receiving the proper voltage when the glow plug is on. Lastly, there may be a safety that is malfunctioning. If the unit does not light within a given time, the safety will "Lock Out" the unit so the place doesn't fill up with gas.
Hope this helps and good luck.

Frididaire gas oven won't light


Does the cooktop burners work? if they do then the problem is either the safety valve or the glow plug (even though it glows). Try tapping the safety valve. If the oven lights up change the glow plug.Otherwise change the safety valve
