Question about Ovens
Our gas range oven has been undependable; sometimes it fails to heat up. This has been going on for the past 6 months. Now, just when I needed a freshly baked apple pie for my husband's antique tractor club pot luck, the darn oven decided to stay cool despite turning it to 425'F. There is an orange glow in the bottom of the oven but no heat. What can I do?

Well there are other parts that control the igniter,but if you can remove the igniter and look for any cracks.Most are hard to find so you may need a magnifying glass.Any crack no matter how small will keep it from glowing.The gas will not flow until the photo senser has detected the igniter glowing for several seconds.You can get a parts breakdown at SearsPartsDirect.com.Well hope this helps.

I have the same oven and the same thing happened to me. I had to change out the heating element to Ignite the lower baking part. Trying to change it out is another story. I used metal snips to "open" the rear part to change it out. I was not ready to take apart the whole oven. The Part cost about 75$ from a part store, and the connections are easy. Hope this helped.
