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.
I have an Oven that will not come on unless I tap the Oven Gas Valve with a screwdriver or some such tool. Is it a failure of the Gas Valve PN 98014893? The ignitor glows red when I turn on the Oven and Also at times I get a real small oven flame.
Answer Hello John. It sounds like you actually are forcing the valve open when you tap it. You could have a weak igniter 98005652, when you turn the oven on it should glow a bright red almost white. If it's not drawing the proper amperage it will not satisfy the valve and open. Hope this helps!
The oven stays on all the time. The only way to turn it off is if I unplug it from the wall outlet. If I plug it back in, it comes on again. While the flames are on I cant control it.
Answer Hello David,
This sounds like the start button is stuck on the clock WB27T10469. Either that or the bake relay is stuck. Either way, the same part is causing the same failure. The start button and the bake relay are on the clock.
Does this part work for all whirlpool ovens?
Answer Hello George. No, the safety valve 98014893 does not fit all whirlpool ovens. We will need your model number to help you with this. Please post your model number with a new question on the parts page. http://www.appliancepartspros.com/modelnumber_locator.aspx
