The oven works, stovetop works,... but my broiler has stopped working. For awhile, it would light, but then goes out after about 30 seconds. Now it's not lighting at all.
I ran cleaning cycle on the oven in case there was debris or something causing the problem, but that didn't change anything.
Thanks for your help.
Answer Hello Rachel,
You should check the wiring to the broil ignitor. If it is still sparking, the burner will be the most likely suspect. I would list part numbers for you but since the model number you provided was partial and pulled up ten different models, I do not want to give you an incorrect part number for your model. You can call in at 1-877-477-7278 and we can look it up for you or you can re-post with the complete model number.
Top burners work. Broiler works. Warmer tray works. But the oven does not. I can hear the igniter clicking. but it does not light the gas. There is a slight odor of gas.
It is taking the service guy forever to diagnose and come over and fix. He said that the wiring from the igniter must be scuffed and is shorting out weakening the spark. Does this make sense? If it does what do I need to do to fix this myself??
Answer Hello Steve,
You would want to test the gas valves and check to make sure that ignitor is in proper position in line with gas. The safety valve you would want to do an ohm reading from bake to common and from broil to common. The common is center terminal on valve. The resistance reading should be 216 ohms. If not within range then it would be a bad valve. The ignitor should draw 3.2 to 3.6 amps and if not positioned properly will not allow the gas to ignite. 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
