I have replaced the oven probe the oven still wont get to temperature if it does it takes a while to reach it and wont hold temperature,
Answer Hello Brian,
Several things can cause this to include the gas pressure to the unit, the ignitor 7432P136-60, the safety valve 12002604, and the relays on the control 74009214. These need to be tested to insure the correct part is replaced.
Hi. I replaced the igniter (74008064) for my KichenAid KGRS205TSS range. The igniter heats up and the gas starts flowing, but it still won’t light up after 5 min (you can smell the gas). I cleaned all the holes. Also I can turn on the oven manually, so it looks there is enough gas flow to keep the oven on, but not enough to turn it on automatically via the igniter. Any idea what the problem is?
Answer Hi. Verify the ignitor still ohms out to 50-400 ohms cold. A new ignitor can have a hairline crack in the middle. It is very rare because the manufacturers have worked hard to triple wrap the ignitor for this shipping issue. You need 120 vac to the ignitor. Measure the Safety Valve part # 12002604 for 3.2-3.5 ac volts. If it is there and the ignition takes longer then 30-45 seconds then replace the Safety Valve. If the voltage is lower then replace the ignitor part # 74007498. Make sure all connection's are clean and tight. Adjust the air shutter on the burner is closed all the way to the stop screw. Do not close the shutter but insure the shutter adjustment loop end is opened fully under the stop screw. Make sure the safety valve manual shut off lever is turned off and back on all the way. Thank You.
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.
