There are times when my whirlpool oven wouild not light, and then other days it works fine. There's proper voltage all the time, and gas top burners work, so it's not a gas supply issue. There are multiple neighbors with the same issue, ovens work, then they stop, then they work again. very frustrating.
You will want to check the oven safety valve and make sure that the valve is not faulty. To do this you will need to check for resistance of 216 ohms from bake to common and from common to broil. If outside of this resistance then the valve is faulty. If this checks ok then would likely be the spark module or the control board causing the issue.
Broiler, and top work, Oven burner does not light. You hear and see spark, gas valve open after a couple of clicks, closes off. I tested resistance at gas valve and get 216 ohms on both oven and broiler. VDC on both 10 VDC. Checked readings on DSI module and all are as specified in tech sheet in the back of the stove. I can light the oven burner manually while the unit is sending out the spark, it lights for about 3 seconds, and the gas gets shut off. Burner, or gas valve ????
Answer Miguel, You do want to check the burner, make sure there is no corrosion, or debris in the burner tube. Check and make sure the range is properly grounded and there are no loose connections. If all's OK replace the DSI spark module W10331686. Sounds like the safety "lock out circuit in the module is being energized and locking out the gas valve.
My oven will light and then the burner shuts off when it is done preheating. But then it cycles you can hear the ignitor clicking and th eoven turns on but only for short periods. Will not hold temp. I have replaced the oven control board in the middle of the top. What else could be wrong?
Answer Ray, Check to make sure the power cord is plugged into a properly polarized, grounded, 120 VAC outlet. Then check the wires from the DSI spark module W10331686 to the burner igniters. You didn't mention any issues with the top burners or the broil burner, so we'll presume your issue isn't a gas flow/pressure problem. That pretty muck leaves the issue in the Gas Valve solenoids W10293048 The solenoids are probably weak and/or a mechanical failure in the interior components of the valve.
Bake burner will not ignite. Broiler and stove top burners work fine. Want to fix myself. Can I replace the bake igniter? If so, which part should I purchase? Thank you.
Yes, you can replace the bake igniter 8054129. You would remove the oven racks and the bottom panel of the range. Pull the burner assembly out and remove the igniter. Install the new igniter and reinstall in reverse.
