Kenmore Gas Range


Hey Alan- 'Self clean' sells. Techs call this function 'self- destruct'. Depending on age and number of previous 'clean' cycles, the control may have developed errors, or lockout switches may not function. If inside is thoroughly scraped, and bottom pan checked, removed, and cleaned if necessary, oven should work fine. Preventitive drip pans and a lot of aluminum foil keep the 'Self Clean' Gremlins away. Hope this helps- Thanks- ED

We self cleaned and the 2 days ago and the door is still locked. Help


The lock is operated by a solenoid and may have stuck due to friction or goo around the magnet core. Try bumping the stove or lifting it 2 inches in front and dropping to the floor. 2 inches will not break anything. There may be a mechanical timer in the self-cleaning circuit... is your gas stove still plugged in and showing signs of power such as ability to ignite top burners electrically? If the timer has failed the door lock solenoid is still activated and there could be a slight hum. Try unplugging the range and see if the door can be opened. The thermal interlock should be free to let the lock retract. If that works replace the timer motor. If solid state (no timer motor) replace circuit board with timer relay.

Kenmore Oven Problem I have a Kenmore 79012 Range. The burners and broiler work fine. The ignitor comes on in the oven, but it will not light. After a few minutes I can smell gas, but the ignitor is still...


the ignitor has to be on before the gas valve opens up and until the stove recognizes a flame, if it doesnt the gas will shut off and the ignitor will cool off, If you use the self clean setting to clean the oven you will destroy the ignitor much faster because they are only rated for about 1000 degreese for just a minute and self clean keeps it around 800 for an hour or so. You may just need to replace the ignitor.

Hello d_i_a_n_a18,
In order to put most ovens into the self-clean mode, there are a series of steps that must be initiated in a specific order. On most units the oven control needs to be set to bake or clean and the temp. control needs to be set to clean and the door lock mechanism must be engaged for everything to work. I would suggest that you consult the user's manual for directions for your specific model. If your manual is not available, check on line at the kenmore parts web-site and you can usually get a PDF version of your manual. Good luck.
