My oven and broiler will not work, but the top burners do.....What could be the problem?
Answer Hello Jan. Test for 3.2-3.6 volts AC at the gas safety valve with the igniter turned on. If the voltage is there, you have a bad safety valve. If the voltage is low, you have a weak igniter and the igniter will need to be replaced. You can test this with a multi-meter TJMA-DMT3. Here is a link on how to use a multi-meter. http://forum.appliancepartspros.com/oven-repair-including-ranges-cooktops/4810-how-check-continuity-ohmmeter.html
I need to order a new oven igniter for this model gas range. Please let me know what the part number is and where can I order.
Answer Hello James,
You can order the ignitor WB2X9154 for the bake or broil burner from appliancepartspros.com from the website or by callin in to us at 1-877-477-7278.
My oven seems to have a problem maintaining the proper temp. When I set it to 350 and the prehaeted indicator came on an oven thermometer showed 310. I let the oven cool and then tried 450, when it said it was preheated the thermometer showed 475. Is this most likely the sensor or something else?
Answer Darrel, There may be nothing wrong. Now a days, the "pre heat" portion of the control is more to "temper" the oven, not truly pre heat it. It is normal to have large variations in the oven temperature at this point in the cycle. Recheck the oven temperature, first check how accurate the thermometer is, set in the oven cavity, it has to be centered in the oven, pre heat the oven for at least 15 to 20 minutes, then observe the thermometer, you have to let the oven cycle at the chosen temperature at least three(3) cycles, then average the temperatures. If the average temperature is within 25 dgrs. of the selected temperature, the oven is working properly. You can "fine tune" the temperature by recalibrating the control if necessary.
