Hi, My oven is not lighting consistently. The spark ignitor will click but not light the oven. Sometimes it will work after the gas dissipates and we try to light it again. Replaced the ignitor with a new one this morning but we have the same issue. Also, once cooking at 450F it heated up and then did not hold temperature and cooled off. Would this be the spark module? This stinks only 13 month old oven?
Answer Jim, The spark module W10331686 is one possibility. but you also need to check the gas valve solenoids for resistance and voltage from the module. when the oven is attempting to ignite there should be 8 to 18 volts DC across the gas valve solenoids from the spark module.
and each solenoid should have a resistance of 215 ohms resistance across the terminals. You may want to operate the oven for a few minutes before you start testing the voltage and resistances, That way the wek part would have time to malfunction to make the tests a bit easier, and results more accurate.
My oven and broiler does not work, my stove top works just fine. When I push the bake and the start button I hear 1 click and when I push the broil and start button I hear 1 click in the top panel and 2 clicks in the oven. I don't smell any gas and my oven does not ignite. Can you help with my problem?
You will need to check voltage to the spark module when the unit is turned on to bake. On the spark module you will need to check for 120 vac between J1-6 and J1-4 pins on the spark module. If there is not 120 vac then the spark module is bad. You will then want to check for DC voltage between Pins J1-1 and J1-2 which is for bake for between 8-18VDC. If there is not 8-18vdc then the spark module is bad. If there is not correct voltage then the spark module is bad. If there is between 8-18 vdc then you will need to replace the safety valve. You can test this with a multi-meter TJMA-DMT3.
