My Amana Gas oven has a problem, When I turn the oven on and set the heat temp it takes a longtime maybe 30 minutes or so to get the oven up to temp. Thanks for any help
Answer Hello Bob. Test for 3.0-3.6 volts AC at the gas safety valve with the igniter turned on. If the voltage is there, you have a bad safety valve. If the voltage is low, you have a weak igniter and the igniter will need to be replaced. 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
Oven will not get hot. Power is on. Fan on convection works but won't get hot. What do you think the problem is?
The most likely cause for the oven not working would either be faulty elements or a faulty control board. You can visually check the element to make sure that they are good. Test the control board by checking voltage. Also check the power supply to make sure that there is 240vac getting to the unit.
I sent question yesterday about bake and broil not getting hot. I have an electric oven and burners work fine. is the Y0314907 a likely problem for my broil and oven not getting hot?
Answer Hello Mike. Sorry about that the model number used pulled up a gas unit. On your model, check and make sure there is 240 volts to both elements. With both failing at the same time, it leads toward a voltage issue with the unit. You can test this with a multi-meter TJMA-DMT3.

I get F-4 code when I turn on temp control for oven and oven won't start.
Answer Hello Russ,
F4 Error code indicates a shorted oven sensor circuit. You will want to test the wiring to your oven sensor circuit. Also test sensor. Sensor should ohm out at approximately 1100 ohms at room temperature.
I have an Amana electric stove model ARR630LL and I started getting an F3 reading on the clock. I did some research and found out that the F3 meant a faulty heat senser. I went to the local parts house and got a new senser (part # y0314907) and installed it. The same thing is still showing on the clock (F-3). What next???? Roger
Answer Roger, A new oven temp. sensor should have a resistance of 1050 to 1100 ohms. Since the sensor is new, you'll need to check the wiring from the sensor connection up to the ERC/clock, make sure there are no broken wires, or damaged insulation and no loose connections. You may want to disconnect the sensor harness from the ERC and check the resistance across the wires in the connector. if you have the correct resistance, the ERC/Clock Y0309441is at fault
How hard is it to replace the temperature sensor in an amana electric oven?
Answer Hello Frankie. These are not hard to replace. Remove the screws securing the sensor and pull it out to unplug the connector. Then plug in the new sensor Y0314907 and reinstall the screws. Most can be done from the indie of the oven, but some require the back panel to be removed to access the screws for the sensor. Hope this helps.
