    Hi,

    When you turn your oven on, open the door first to see if there is a orange glow from the bottom, possibly your oven igniter glow bar may be bad.

    Here's the one for your model:

    Default Thanks!

    Yes that was the problem. Unfortunately I didn't wait for the reply and ended up paying much more for the repairman to fix it.

    Next time hopefully I'll have more patience.

    I have the same model stove with a oven that is acting up as well. I do see the orange glow of the ignitor though. It will be "pre heating" for 20+ min with the ignitor on but the oven burner not engaging. Strangely (it seems) if I turn on one of the stove top burners the oven lights up. But it also could be because I've opened the oven door to check on it...I swear that kicking on a stovetop burner makes the difference. Thoughts on what might be broken?

    Hi,

    Its your the exact same model#?

    If the oven igniter glow bar is glowing orange and there's no flame after 90 seconds of it glowing, then your glow bar is bad.

    If yours is the exact same model as John's, then you can order the glow bar from the I posted to it above.

    It is the same exact model so I'll give the part a try. Is there anything special to know about the installation? Tricks of the trade if you will...

    Thank you for your quick reply!

    Its very easy to change.

    Unplug your range first!

    Take the bottom panel off from the inside of your oven #8 here:
    http://c.searspartsdirect.com/lis_pn...8090-00003.png
    first take the bottom oven panel screws out#43 then that bottom oven panel lifts up and out.

    Then you will see your flame shield#20 here:
    http://c.searspartsdirect.com/lis_pn...8090-00002.png
    take off the #21 nut that holds it on. Then your oven igniter glow bar is #19, just unmount the 2 screws that connect it to the burner#18, undo the quick connector, you will need to remove your very bottom storage drawer then the quick connector will be in the very back after your remove the storage drawer. Get a flashlight to see it better.

    Thats it, then install the new oven igniter glow bar.

    If the new glow bar doesn't come with a new quick connector, then you will need to slice the wires together with the ceramic wire nuts that come with it. Which means you would need to cut the wires at the quick connector and use a wire stripper tool to strip the wire insulation about a 1/2" off then wire nut it together with the new glow bar wires that should already be stripped. If you don't have a wire stripper and hardware store will have one or Radio Shack sell them as well.

    Or you can order it here:

    Default Similar problem, different Oven

    Hi,

    Similar problem with different model. Our stove burners work but the oven does not. When we turn it on nothing happens, no glow bar glowing. Nothing.

    We have a Kenmore model 362.72224204.

    Would replacing the same part help us or are we dealing with something different? Thanks in advance.

    Test the bake ignitor first.

    The way I test it is put my volt meter leads in that connector that goes to your oven igniter glow bar, when the oven is on you should get 120 volts on the volt meter. If you do and the igniter glow bar isn't coming on, then you have a bad oven igniter glow bar.

    If you don't have a volt meter, you can get a cheap one at Radio Shack.

    To get access to the oven igniter glow bar electrical connector, I take out the bottom storage drawer completely then get a flashlight or floodlight to see under there, and then I can see the oven igniter glow bar connector.

    Here's the oven igniter glow bar for your model in case you need to order it:
    Manufacturer's Number: WB13K21

    WB13K21

    Let us know how it goes.
