Amana Glow Bar

1992 Amana Range(model#AGS745W–manufacturer#P1113904S): The oven would not heat up, the bake glow bar ignitor would start glowing slowly, but was worn out, with normal use, and it wouldn’t send a signal to the safty valve to let the gas come out to the bake burner.
The oven ignitor will need to be replaced.

Magic Chef

Magic Chef Range(model#CGR1420BDQ): The oven igniter glow bar comes on but does not signal the safty valve to start the gas flow to the burner. The problem is the oven igniter is bad.
These are easy to install, just take off the bottom cover of the oven, then remove the flame shield, and you will see it.

Outer Tub Assembly

Sears Kenmore made by Frigidaire(model#41743042200): Very loud banging sound when its spinning, and leaking water from the middle of the drum from where the 2 sides bolt together.
The problem is the Rear outer tub bearing and shaft seal is worn out. Also on some of these the spin basket spiders can break.
This is a major repair, its a complete teardown of the washer installing the new parts, it can be a 2-4 hour job.

Range Bake Element

Sears Kenmore Electric Range made by Whirlpool (model#665.95002101): Oven is not heating when the bake cycle is on, I always make sure the range is receiving 240 volts at the range terminal block, a volt/ohm meter is a necessity. If that checks ok, then I check the the bake element for continuity with the ohm meter, make sure the power to the range is off first before testing the bake element for continuity.
There was no continuity in the bake element, when i checked it.
