Question about Kenmore 40192 / 40199 Electric Single Oven

Hole underneath back left burner?

There is an open metal tube that runs from my oven to underneath the back left burner. Should it have a cap? It seems to be letting a lot of hot air out the oven, and my cooking times are way off.

It is your oven vent. It needs to be left open. There could be a calibration issue with your cooking times. Check the accuracy of your thermostat with an oven thermometer.

Oven flame is yellow


There is an adjustment on the burner assuming that the top side burners are ok. Getting to that adjustment may be a pain, so look for a screw on the metal sleeve on the end that the gas line connects to. this sleeve controls the amount of air that mixes with the gas to produce a hot flame. Do not let this go, because the amount of carbon monoxide the oven produces now can be lethal.

How to Troubleshoot a Gas Range Oven That Won't Heat
By Kefa Olang, eHow Contributor
Although gas range oven may prove useful for cooking and baking, they may fail to ignite if they aren't properly maintained and set up. Lighting a gas range often involves simply turning a knob; however, blockages from food particles and debris caught in the burners, improper burner cap installation and gas supply are common problems that interfere with your gas range oven's performance. A few troubleshooting guidelines may solve these problems safely.

      Inspect the small vertical holes on the side of your burners for dirt, food and debris. The gas won't ignite if they are clogged. Scrape dirt, debris and food from the vertical holes using a pointy object such as a toothpick or paperclip.

      Reinstall the burner caps properly. If they are tilted or wobbly, the gas may not ignite. Install the caps on the right burners. Some burners are smaller than others, so match the caps to the appropriate burners.

      Move the burner knob to the "Lite" position and wait for the gas to ignite. If it ignites, rotate the knob to your desired setting. If it doesn't ignite, contact a qualified appliance technician.

Magic chef oven with uniburners oven will not light. igniter gets red hot but seems like no gas coming at all. burners on top work fine.


Hello,

Since the bake burner does glow yet no flame that means that the igniter is weak and should replaced...the way the igniter works is that it comes on and get very hot where upon getting hot it draws a certain amount of amperage which will allow the gas valve to open resulting in a flame. The igniter is indeed coming on yet its not getting hot enough to draw the proper amp drqaw to open the gas valve...by replacing it with a new fresh igniter it will draw the correct amprage and let the gas flow.

The top left front burner will not ignite. The igniter is sparking, but does not ignite burner. You can smell the gas. The burner will ignite with a match.


Hello
This sounds like the tube that runs from the burner to the ignitor is clogged. If you raise the top of the stove, look for that tube, take it out and run it under some hot water to remove the residue buildup. Replace the tube and try it again. My thought is that is the trouble,
Let me know how you make out, Please rate and comment, Thank You

Kenmore Gas Range. Top burners work fine. Oven is slow to preheat. Igniter has a yellow glow and the burner lights within about 20-30 seconds later. However, the burner has a very small flame and it takes...


the ignitor should glow bright orange.it sounds like you have a weak ignitor but if the flame lites within 20 to 30 seconds it sounds like it's ok,it could be braking down though when it gets hot,it doesn't matter if it glows,it has to be putting out 3.2 amps,if you have an amp meter with a clamp on it you can read out the amps,if the broiler works ok i would change out the ignitor,then follow the tube down to the bottom and stick a paper clip in the orifice hole where the gas comes out and make sure that's clear,also there's a shutter on the tube to adjust the air flow,see if it's closed,it's usually almost wide open,check the tube to make sure the ignitor didn't burn a hole through it.i've found tubes with holes in them from a lazy ignitor,most of the time if there's a problem it will be the ignitor

I have a Maytag Oven Model CRG9800BAE Will not ignite gas when turned on.


are you saying that when you set it to bake the oven doesn't heat or are you talking about the top burners?if it's the oven you have a bad ignitor, the oven flame should lite in under 40 seconds to a minute,if it doesn't it's the ignitor,part number 12400035 and it's around 80 bucks.unplug it or kill the braker,take out the racks,remove the bottom panel or oven floor,take off the wing nut and remove the metal cover and you'll see the burner tube and the ignitor,,with a wet paper towel wet the screw threds on the two screws with water so they don't strip out and then remove the two screws holding the ignitor on,trust me it works.if you have to, unplug the ignitor or if it's not the original ignitor cut the two wires at the end of the old ignitor and connect the new ignitor with the ceramic wire caps and remove the burner tube if it's hard to get at the ignitor screws.put it back together and the ignitor should lite the flame in less than a minute.let me know how you make out

I opened the door of the microwave oven but I could feel hot air


is yours a convection and microwave combo oven? if yes the fan is a cool-down fan to blow cold air over the magnatron tube. Microwaves are designed with a multiple number of safety switches usually 2 or more in the door that the magnatron (the thing that generates microve energy) could never come on with the door open.

Burner not lighting but igniter is glowing red hot.


The flame sensor is not activating the gas valve. Check or change sensor.
