Hi, you guys helped me before, amybe you can again. I have a
Kenmore stove(362.72295790) and the glo bar is glowing red
however there is no ignition. The saftey valve can't or won't
open to let the gas come in??? My limited understanding tells
me that if the glo-bar lights there is continuity through the
saftey valve??? Both of these parts are expensive($64 &
$72), so I would like to replace the correct one, or should I
replace both? Or is there another componet that could cause the problem?
In about 95% of these, the ignitor's the problem. Goes
high-R with age, still glows, but doesn't pass enough
current to open the valve. Replace the ignitor.
And they're not expensive. I sell them every day for
$27.50 plus $4 Priority Mail (two days) here:
