Just replaced the igniter . Oven seems to light fine but when i close the door the flame seems to retract and there is a gas smell . Open the door it is fine . could it be the safety valve ?
Answer Dave, No, it's not likely a faulty safety valve. It's more likely to be a fuel / air mixture issue. Remove and check the burner tube 74003960
Check to make sure all the openings are clean and open, the air shutter is adjusted properly (1/2 to 3/4 of the way open, then fine tune the mixture). Then check that the range hasn't been pushed back into the cabinet too far, and that the bottom drawer, and base aren't out of alignment or blocked by something not allowing the proper make up air into the oven for a proper fuel air mixture, and proper burn.
I need to convert my stove from Lp to natural gas. I have the four parts for the burners but I need the part for the oven.
Answer Hello Jeff! You will want to order kit part number W10032030 if you do not have an orifice with a marking "56" on it, to convert the oven burner correctly. You will need to flip the cap on the regulator to LP also, you can refer to your use and care guide for reference. Thanks!
I guess my question is, what keeps the oven safety valve open on a Whirlpool DSI (Direct Spark Ignition) system?
Answer Richard, The DSI spark module W10331686 has a "flame safety circuit" built into the board circuitry. " Once the gas has ignited, the flame safety circuit will monitor the flame at the burner to make sure it is present. If a flame is not present at the burner, The DSI will allow the igniter to spark for 4 to 5 seconds. After three attempts to ignite, the DSI will perform an oven system "lockout". You'll have to cancel the cycle and start all over again. The gas valve W10293048 solenoids have to "open" before the ignition spark occurs, of course it's somewhat instantaneous for the valve solenoid to open and the sparking to occur and ignite the gas, and flame is established.
Oven does not light. Replaced igniter and gas safety valve still does not light. What else could it be?
Answer Hello Al. We will need your model number to help you with this. Please call 1-877-477-7278 or post your model number with a new question on the parts page. http://www.appliancepartspros.com/modelnumber_locator.aspx
When I turn on the oven in my Maytag stove, I smell gas, after a minute or two there is a big whoosh as the oven lights, once even pushing open the oven door. Once it is on it works fine.
Answer Hello S.N.,
I a situation such as this, you need to do a thorough inspection of the burner area. If the burner looks stopped up or deteriorating or in any way malformed or defective, the burner should be replaced. The ignitor and the safety valve should be replaced any way. The burner is of primary concern because if it isn't dropping gas on the ignitor properly, too much gas will accumulate before the gas actually ignites. If it were mine, I would replace the safety valve, the ignitor, and the burner. I would strongly recommend the same for any of my customers.
