Customer Question
We have a Kenmore...

We have a Kenmore Model #79071319705 and the over will not heat up. I took off the bottom cover in the oven and the ignitor is turning red but the burner will not light. the top burners work just fine

Contractor's Assistant: Can you guesstimate how old your Kenmore is? And just to clarify, what's the exact model?

5 years and that is the model number

Contractor's Assistant: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?

Yes

Even though the igniter is glowing, they grow weak and do not draw enough current through the bimetal in the gas valve to allow it to open to heat the oven. The igniter will need to be replaced and is available below.
