Kenmore Oven Model 362

I have a Kenmore oven model #362.XXXXXXXX which is more likely a GE. I get a bad line code on the message center. The code is for a bad wiring situation but did not appear until a year later after the oven had been installed. The line is a dedicated circuit running directly to the panel. The circuit checks out with proper grounding and proper voltage. Could there be an internal problem with the circuit board or other parts.

Gas Range

This is actually a Kenmore oven, natural gas, the exact model number is 362.75621302. I bought this from Sears and have found out it is actually manufactured by GE. I get a BAD LINE code as soon as the stove is plugged in. The oven does not work but I can get the burners to work with a lighter. The code is constant and never changes and is accompanied by a loud beeping noise. I have read the online error code explanation that states the problem is in the external wiring or the outlet. This stove worked for over a year on the same outlet and never had a problem until recently. The circuit is grounded and the voltage is correct no other problems when tested.

Suggestion: (Try This)
Use a grounded extension cord to plug the oven into a wall outlet that is NOT on the same electrical circuit and see what happens. If the results in/on the ovens display panel change, the wall outlet that is or was being used before the test is then defective somehow (likely lost it's grounding if that is even possible???) or the electrical problem is within the appliance.

Reason why I suggest this test is because the sparkers have also stopped working. Based upon an assumption as a result of your statement you light the top burners manually. Usually top burner sparkers have there own spark module and are on a separate circuit within the appliance. Usually but not always.
