Hi The oven igniter has an intermitting spark issue. Some times it will spark and light the gas bar other times it will spark once then miss then spark then miss without gas igniting. Do I have a bad igniter or is it in the control module. Thanks
With this issue, If the igniter is sparking then it will most likely not be the cause of failure unless the igniter insulator is cracked. This issue would most likely be caused by a faulty spark module but you will want to also check the resistance of the safety valve to ensure that it is good. The valve should have a 216O resistance reading from the bake to common and from broil to common. If there is not the proper resistance then replace the oven safety valve.
Hi, I replace the igniter on my Whirlpool oven. It lite once. The second time I tried the oven it would not lite? Is it possible that the part is defective or is there another problem that I should be looking at? thanks.
You will want to check the oven safety valve to make sure that it is good. Test for 216 ohms of resistance from bake to common and from broil to common. If the resistance is not correct then replace the oven safety valve.
Sometimes the oven will heat up and then shut off. If we reset it, it will work fine. This only happens once every 5 or 6 times of using the oven. Can you tell us what it might be?
Answer Dave, there are lot's of possibilities, first is the range on Natural gas or LP gas. You may have fluctuating pressure to the range. check and make sure the range power cord is plugged into a properly polarized and grounded, 120 VAC outlet. Check the wiring at the gas valve, igniter and spark module. If all's OK, suspect a weak or faulty solenoid on the gas valve/regulator assembly W10602001.
How can you tell if the spark igniter is not working . The boil works fine . The bake will not lite. You can hear the igniter trying to lite.
Answer Hello Jesse. You will need to check and see if you can see a spark from the igniter. If you see a spark, then test the gas valve. Check between each solenoid for 216O resistance. 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
How do you replace the oven ignitor?
Answer Hello Tee. 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
My Maytag range, every thing works except the oven. when the oven is turned on it has a delay then starts clicking with a strong odor of gas then turns off any ideas. I just replaced the spark module?
Answer Eric, You'll need to check or replace the gas valve W10293048. The gas valve has three terminals, the center terminal is the "common" circuit. From the center terminal to each outer terminal you should have a resistance of 215 ohms with the wires disconnected. with the wires reattached, and a bake cycle programmed you should read 8 to 18 volts DC across the orange and red wires from the DSI spark module. You should also have 8 to 18 volts DC across the orange and blue wires when broil is selected. If all checks OK, replace the gas valve.
