More than likely, your igniter for the bake manifold needs to replaced. Even if the igniter glows, they sometimes become weak with age and no longer provide the necessary current to open the gas valve. The following link explains all this and how to replace one if you wish to perform the repair yourself:

Since the BAKE function is used more frequently than BROIL, the lower igniter tends to wear out more often. Its a fairly simple repair job. Replacement igniters can be found on line at searspartsdirect.com or repairclinic.com. There are other sites available, but these two tend to have the best prices, with Sears offering excellent parts illustrations for easy component identification. I hope this helps you. Let me know if you require additional assistance.

Kenmore oven doesnt bake


Can I assume that you determined that the bottom burner flame is burning properly? To do this, remove the oven bottom insert. The flames should have approximately 1" of blue cone and should burn with no yellowing tip, if on natural gas. (A small yellow tip on the end of the outer cone is normal with most LP gas.) The flmaes should not lift off the burner ports. If the flame is lifting, gradually reduce the air shutter until the flame stabilizes.

Go to the following website for your particular manual.

The oven burner will not ignite.


Because the glowbar is glowing does not necessarily make it good.
Turn off the gas to the stove. Remove the oven racks. Remove the bottom oven pan. Remove the flame spreader. This gives you access to the glow bar and gas valve.
Put a clamp on amp meter around one wire of the glowbar. Turn the oven control on to BAKE.
If the glowbar reads 3 amps or less,replace the glowbar ignitor.
If the glowbar reads good,check the burner tube for a white ash buildup. It can be cleaned with a wire brush. Look closely near the glowbar section of the burner.
Check all the wire connections for the gas valve.
If the glowbar is good and the ash deposits are gone and the oven still will not ignite,the next step is to replace the gas safety valve.

I can't bake. The bottom burner in my stove is not working. The broiler works fine. Could the burner be bad?


yeah, it's definitely the burner. most people use bake more than broil and that's the reason why bake goes out first, almost all the time. you can check by getting a reading of 240v where the element connects to, assuming this is electric. If it's gas, then the ignitor needs to be changed and you should get 120v reading. Good luck.

The glow bar for the bake burner is bad, needs to be replaced. Remove oven bottom to get to it, and also the utility drawer.

Oven produces soot when running, broiler ok, stove top ok


Al, you need to seat the needle valve on the bake. Remove the bottom drawer, right below the bake burner you will see the nut just below the air shutter adjustment. Turn this nut clockwise a few times, it might seem hard but just do it. Then try the bake again, you should have a nice bluel flame. Tenbears.

Oven burner doesn't light


If memory serves me,there are a couple of screws on oven floor.Remove panel.Sounds like ignitor is the culprit.It feeds back to control.It may glow and light but unless it is sending full signal,gas valve will not open fully and oven will take forever to heat.
