Oven and top burners seem to work fine. Broiler igniter sparks and I smell gas but gas smell goes away and spark stops after maybe 3 clicks.
Answer Hello Dmfx,
There will always be a bit of a gas smell from a gas unit during initial ignition. The unit has to open the valve then get it lit. During this time, a gas smell that dissipates is normal.
I have a yellow flame on all burners plus broiler and oven, no issues with my
natural gas grill or other gas appliances in house.
Answer Hello Wally. You need to check and see if the pressure regulator on the gas valve 9763716 is bad and will need to be replaced on the unit.
Oven will at times not keep temperature during cooking cycle. Oven will attempt to ignite but will not.
Answer Hello Ken,
You would want to do an amp draw on the oven ignitor. You should be getting between 3.2 and 3.6 amps 8054129. If you are not then you need to replace the ignitor. You can also check the resistance of the gas valve 9763716. Should be 216 ohms between bake and common and broil and common.
I need 2 orifices for the whirpool gas oven 52 hood broil and 49 hood bake.
Answer Mike, to obtain the natural gas orifices you will need to order the oven valve 7501P232-60 and fitting 74010901. However, if you are needing the LP orifices you will need to use the conversion kit W10168551. Thanks!
I have a small gas leak at the broiler orifice, when all functions are off. I assume this valve controls this flow and, assuming it is defective, will this be the only reason I would get leakage?
Answer Hi Billy. You will need to immediately trip the gas valve top lever to the off position for safety concerns. While replacing the new safety valve, make sure that you use a gas type thread tape (yellow) Or the gas Thermatic brand thread compound at the local hardware store. Make sure the gas tubing is tight. Then make sure the on/off lever is placed on when ready to fire. Safety valve part # 9763716. Thank You.
burners will spark and ingnite, oven has AP3886513 and AP3921285, they are not glowing, but oven control shows that it's pre heating fan comes on. Oven neveg gets hot. Broil ElementPart Number: AP3885724 will heat up but no flame on boiler or oven.
Answer Hello Kevin. To test the valve, 1. Unplug range or disconnect power.
2. Turn off gas supply to range.
3. Remove the storage drawer. NOTE: You
can access the gas distribution valve from
inside the drawer area.
4. Disconnect the wires from the gas distribution
5. Set the ohmmeter to the R x 1 scale.
6. Touch the ohmmeter test leads to the
indicated gas distribution valve terminals.
The meter should indicate as follows:
Terminal 1 (red) to terminal 2 (orange)
= 216 O ±30.
Terminal 2 (orange) to terminal 3 (blue)
= 216 O ±30.
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
