Everything works except broiler. Igniter glows but burner does not light?
Answer Hello Kevin,
You may want to check the igniter before the valve. The igniter 74007498 has to reach a certain temperature to turn open the gas valve. I would first ohm out the igniter. The ohm reading should be between 50-400 ohms at 75 degrees. Amp draw should be between 3.2 and 3.6 amps when turned on and the voltage should be 120 vac. If you are not getting at least 3.2 amps or do not fall in the correct ohm range then replace igniter.
The stove top works. The oven and the broiler both make the bake error code blink. Before the oven stopped working the stove would lock it self randomly when the oven was on. We had to trip the breaker to unlock it, it would not unlock by the control panel.
Answer Hello John,
The most likely cause is the temperature probe 12001655. The reasoning behind this diagnosis is the fact that the control will lock the door if it see a high temperature in the bake compartment for safety reasons. If the temperature probe is out of tolerance and sending the incorrect information to the control, it will lock the door so no one gets burned. The second suspect is the control 5701M709-60 itself. The door lock mechanism isn't a consideration because it is able to lock and un-lock the door.
bake mode on oven igniter comes on but it doesnt ignite the burner. Could this be a valve ? The broiler works, just not bake mode
Answer Danny, It's most likely a weak igniter on the bake burner 74007498. The igniter has to glow "white" hot, it may glow orange or red, but it has to produce 3.2 to 3.6 amps on the system to open the valve and ignite the burner. That's the more likely issue and not the valve assembly. Thanks
