Hello, I have a Maytag Gas oven that fires up, gets to a certain temperature, usually under the temp requested at the control board, and then all of a sudden it will shoot up to 500 degrees. What do you think? I have back probed the oven temp sensor and got the correct resistance on that part, but I am not sure if it would be the igniter? I don't have a clamp on tester to see what the draw is from the igniter, just a multi meter. Is there a certain # I should be reading to test the igniter with my multi meter?
ANSWER Hi. You can check to see if the igniter is getting 120 vac to the igniter first. You need to ohm out the oven sensor for 1080 ohms to 1100 ohms to see if it is open. I'm getting to the safery valve to see if it has 1-ohm resitance on the terminals at the safety valve. Disconnect one wire to ohm it out. It sounds like that the diaprahm internally is weak under pressure then it may be a cause as well, so ohm check it. IF the logic circuit are bad on the control board then it may be the issue. It is more then likely the diaprahm is weak over powering the gas supply during operation. Thank You.
