I've got the same model number, Kennmore built in oven and it just
brork in 2008 too. Repair man said they dont make the parts for the 17
year old oven so i'm out of luck. The relay in the clock area broke and
is $250, and that sends energy to the coils, but i guess its a new oven

Hello' Does your model have an electronic ignition? If so open broiler drawer ,turn on oven and look for bright orange glow. May take a few seconds.If it glows but no or poor flame .replace oven igniter.If no glow at all , check for voltage at igniter when switched on to see if it may be oven thermostat . Get a tech to test if not sure.All easy to fix.
Most modern gas ovens have a device called a Glow Ignitor to light the burner. If this ignitor has filed, it will NOT left the gas valve open-- (Good thing, right? :-) )
You say the broiler lights fine-- so let's observe something when the Broiler lights: Do you see a bright glow near the Broiler burner? (Usually toward the top rear of the oven--)
Well, you should see a similar bright glowing near the BOTTOM rear of your oven, for the main burner to light off-- If you do NOT see this glowing-- then you need a new ignitor-
You can remove the bottom burner cover, and dig deeper into the repair if you like- But a new ignitor needs to be exactly like the failed one-- the safety circuit is very fussy about the exact same ignitor-- or it will not allow lighting-- even with a new 'generic' installed.
How deep do you want to go into this repair?-- Maybe it is time to call the service people into do the job?-- You can tell them that you think the ignitor needs replacing-- and approx. what will they charge you for the service call and the ignitor?
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.
Most likely a hot-surface ignitor has failed. If it doesn't consume enough current, the gas valve won't open. It's usually a fairly easy fix, once you gain access to the ignitor and have a new one to replace it with. Make sure you unplug the range...
there is a eletric thermocouple at the bottem back of oven unplug the stove remove broiler draw to get access to this part remove small screw disconnect wire replace with new one to order part you will make modle s/n off data plate good iuck later
gas ovens and many broilers use a "glow-bar" style of igniter that
glows red-hot to ignite the gas. If the igniter doesn't reach the
proper temperature, the gas valve won't open. You may need to replace
