My oven sometimes heats up and sometimes it doesnt. You can smell gas I turn it off and turn it on several times and it works it works.
Answer Hello Bob. 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
My oven over heats. I checked probe ohms never with with tempeture.
Answer Hello Chuck. If the probe ohms bad, you will need to replace the temp probe on the unit.
My preheat is not working. I set temperature, but the thermostat is never satisfied. It gets warm but thats it. The broiler works fine.
Answer Hello John,
Most problems with gas ranges turn out to be the ignitor. I would use a clamp on ampmeter to insure the ignitor is pulling 3.2 to 3.6 amps. If it isn't, replace the ignitor 316489400. You see, the ignitor has to pull at least 3.2 amps to form a strong enough magnetic field in the valve coils to open the valve.
Gas and igniter comes on. igniter glows red then shuts off, but gas stays on sometimes loud boom when it relights. No codes come up and burners work fine. Thanks

oven does not reach temp think it is the temp-prob how many ohms should i get wene checking resistance
Answer Jeff, At, room temperature(78 dgrs.F) the oven temp.sensor should have a resistance of less than 1100 ohms resistance. At an oven temperature of 350 dgrs.F the resistance should be 1650 ohms resistance(after 30 to 40 minutes of cooking time). The first option or check on a gas range with a temperature issue, should be the burner ignition system. A weak igniter etc., can cause the temperature to fluctuate and appear as a control issue. Thanks and Good Luck
I turned the broiler on and the letters H1 came up .
Answer Hi Pat. Unhook the oven temperature sensor and check the wires for opens or shorts. Rotate the wires so you know if it is shorted or open. It is part #316134900. It will usually give a F-3 code on newer units to indicate it being an issue. Unfortunately, the clock is no longer available. Thank You.
