I need to convert my stove from Lp to natural gas. I have the four parts for the burners but I need the part for the oven.
Answer Hello Jeff! You will want to order kit part number W10032030 if you do not have an orifice with a marking "56" on it, to convert the oven burner correctly. You will need to flip the cap on the regulator to LP also, you can refer to your use and care guide for reference. Thanks!
I guess my question is, what keeps the oven safety valve open on a Whirlpool DSI (Direct Spark Ignition) system?
Answer Richard, The DSI spark module W10331686 has a "flame safety circuit" built into the board circuitry. " Once the gas has ignited, the flame safety circuit will monitor the flame at the burner to make sure it is present. If a flame is not present at the burner, The DSI will allow the igniter to spark for 4 to 5 seconds. After three attempts to ignite, the DSI will perform an oven system "lockout". You'll have to cancel the cycle and start all over again. The gas valve W10293048 solenoids have to "open" before the ignition spark occurs, of course it's somewhat instantaneous for the valve solenoid to open and the sparking to occur and ignite the gas, and flame is established.
