I have a Kenmore stove, model number 911-735-9180. My burners are working fine (they click to turn on) but my oven does not work. I push the bake setting and it does not heat up although my broiler works fine.

  • Is it a stove you're familiar with that has worked in the past? Just wondering if it's a question on using the stove or if it's developed a fault. – PeterJ Feb 12 '15 at 20:56

    If was working before... call Sears? – talon8 Feb 12 '15 at 21:51

    I'm voting to close this question as off-topic because it is a technical question about an appliance, not anything to do with cooking as per our guidelines. – Cindy Feb 15 '15 at 16:22
  • @Cindy Kitchen equipment is the second bullet in the help center: cooking.stackexchange.com/help/on-topic I do think questions like this will likely get better answers on diy.stackexchange.com though, since those folks often have more experience with major appliance repair than us. – Cascabel Feb 17 '15 at 5:23
  • In the world of home appliances, a cooktop with an oven in a common cabinet is called a "Range".
  • This is a Kenmore Gas Range model # 911.7359180
  • Sears model #'s usually don't have - dashes/hyphens in them.
  • There are only 3 or 4 parts that can fail.

Basic Gas Oven Troubleshooting:

  1. Check the power, needs to be plugged in, standard 110vac outlet.
  2. Check the Igniter, it's the most common oven part that fails. Does it glow?
    • NO = replace igniter $25
    • YES = can you smell/detect gas from oven pilot or burner? = replace igniter.
    • YES = but no gas smelled/detected. = bad gas valve.

May have 1 valve, combination safety & control OR 2 valves, separate safety & control.
Gas Valves start around $100.
