My oven will not maintain cooking temperature. During cooking cycle, the igniture will click but will not ignite. This does not happen during every cooking cycle. Repairman says we need a 9763716, 9760229, 9762794, and W10131825. For a 5.5 yr old unit this seems excessive. Seems as though they are replacing everything possible to just resolve my issue. Thoughts?
ANSWER Hello Ken,
You can check most of these parts using a voltmeter. The oven sensor W10131825 you can test at room temperature. You should read 1090 ohms at room temperature. The oven safety valve 9763716 you can test by checking the solenoids on the valve. You should have 216 ohms between broil and common and between bake and common. You can test the spark ignitor for between 3.2 ad 3.6 amps when trying to light oven. If all of these things check ok then you would want to check wiring from each component to back to control board and make sure that there are no broken or damaged wires.
