I have a Kenmore gas freestanding oven. Model# 709.72402013, Serial# VF04136844 and the oven and broiler do not turn on. The stove top burners work fine. In the other side of the panel it says "12 OV/60hz 15 amp Intermittent Type Ignition Device". I got a part number for the ignitor of AP4433236 from your site but when I pull up ignitors by oven, there is a whirlpool ignitor that replaces the broil/bake elements and your Q & A lists a Bake Ignitor and a Broil Ignitor. ARe there 2 parts? Can I use the combined part from Whirlpool? I am now very confused because if I have to buy 2 parts, I want to know before I take the oven apart. I also need instructions if they are available, the ones I have are very simplified.
ANSWER Hello Rochelle,
The symptom doesn't go along with the ignitor failing because, as you said, there is one for the top burner and one for the lower oven unless the unit has a broiler drawer, in which case there is only the one ignitor. I would assume that there is a high limit thermal cutout that has opened. This is about all I can guess without a valid model number. I tried the one you listed and it came back as invalid. If you would like us to pinpoint the part for you, please re-post with a valid model number.
