Since I purchased my oven new 5 years ago, I have had a problem where occasionally I would hear the gas valve open and the ignitor click, but no flame -OR- it would start on it's own (or with a match) and run till it got hot then stop running. It seemed like it happened faster as you set the oven temp higher. It also appears to happen both baking and broiling. Recently, it has become an every time headache. I changed the bake ignitor two days ago and since then I have seen no issue with the oven lighting, but it shutting down once fully warm has continued. Thanks in advance for your help!
ANSWER Hi. Ohm the oven sensor part # W10181986 to make sure it ohm between 1060-1100 ohms. More then 10% tolerance then you need to replace it. It sends the oven control the temperature readings so the preset command will allow the bake and broil relays to send heat and stop (open) the heat. Thank You
