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.
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.
