There could be several reasons.

  1. You could have 1 bad element.
  2. You could have a loose connection in the stove. Try removing the element and reinstalling to reset the element.
  3. Your selector switch could be bad. Contact an electrician for electrical checks

SOURCE: Oven does not heat but broiler does

The most common cause of this symptom is a defective ignitor. Oven ignitors can glow and allow enough current through to open the oven gas valve but just not produce enough heat to ignite the gas immediately (see the link below).


In that case, replacing the oven ignitor is the usual solution.

SOURCE: oven gas in intermitit. broiler works but oven gas

This problem is commonly attributed to a bad igniter on the bake manifold. Each oven manifold (one for bake, one for broil) has its own igniter. They are both fed from the same gas source, though. So, if the broiler works, more than likely you simply need to replace the bake igniter. The following link explains:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r401858-replacing_oven_igniter_gas_range

The bake igniter tends to wear out faster, due to the frequency of use.

You can purchase replacements on line at searspartsdirect.com, appliancepartspros.com, pcappliancerepair.com, or repairclinic.com. Just use you model number as your search criteria.

This is a simple repair that anyone can do on their without the need of a service call. Just follow the steps provided. If you have any questions, please let me know. I hope this helps you.

It appears your Ignitor has failed in this instance.

For replacement parts - head on over to PartSelect.com or RepairClinic.com and enter in your full model number for a full parts listing.
I recommend both sites because ...


FixYa has no affiliation with either site - I have been using and recommending them for years - trouble free.

PartSelect has a great schematic database for locating the part on your unit and great "testimonials" for each part that often times includes HOW-TO information.
RepairClinic has pictures of each part they sell and also a great how-to and troubleshooting for basic repairs.


If your unit has never been serviced - there should still be an original service manual enclosed in plastic taped to the inside of the shell.
In the service manual are Error codes, maintenance procedures, and troubleshooting steps you can follow.


Anything too complicated or beyond your scope should be handled by a professional.

If you think you want to tackle the repair - and have gotten stuck on a step - reply to your question and I will be glad to help you out.





Thanks for using FixYa - a 4 THUMBS rating is appreciated for answering your FREE question.

How do you know the ignitor is fine? The ignitor for the oven is different than that of the burners. Rather than clicking, the oven ignitor will glow red. If when you turn of the oven you don't see a source of red light coming from under the oven bottom your ignitor is bed.

Oven wont heat broiler wont heat


is this a gas or electric range. If it is gas it sounds like a flame sensor is not working. The oven will try to fire up, but if it does not sence a flame, it will shut off again to keep the range from filling with raw gas. Also the easy one, is the gas turned on?

Gas broiler works, but the regular oven works intermittently, can you explain how this can happen.


The ignitor for the oven could be going bad and causing the oven valve to open intermittently. I see this often. Or the oven valve could be going bad... but the usual suspect is the ignitor.

Oven and Broiler not working


The gas supply valve to the oven/broiler is the likely culprit. It is a separate valve from the stovetop. I've had the same problems and had to replace mine twice now. They are very expensive, (about 100 dollars) considering the cost of the whole stove. It is located
inside the broiler drawer on the very back wall.

Oven igniter will not lite


Replace the igniter. Even if it's glowing red hot, it is still likely the problem. Evidently the oven reads the resistance across the heating element, and when it doesn't detect enough resistance, it knows that the igniter is wearing out, thus not getting hot enough, and you're going to have a hard time igniting the gas. So, it won't turn on the gas -- how thoughtful of your oven to keep you from blowing up.

I had the same problem until I read all about it at http://fixitnow.com/wp/2004/09/19/appliance-repair-revelation-troubleshooting-a-gas-oven-that-wont-fire-up/

If you're in a bind and need to use your oven tonight (or you want proof that it's the igniter going bad), you can try stealing the igniter from the broiler and using it to replace the igniter for the main part of the oven. Since most people use the broiler less than the regular "bake" feature of the oven, that igniter lasts longer.
