I can't get the bottom storage door to open on my new whirlpool 5.0 gas oven. How can I get it to open?
If the storage drawer will not open then you will want to find some way to access what is in it to get it loose so that it will open. It sounds like something that would be blocking it that will not allow it to open.
Periodically the oven does not light and smell like gas then ignites and attempts to light stove full of gas. It does not leak gas all the time and top burners all work good. The stove is the only part I have issues with. Sometime there is a small explosion in oven.
Answer Hello Larry. It sounds like the igniter is weak and will need to be replaced. Test for 3.2-3.6 volts AC at the gas safety valve with the igniter turned on. If the voltage is there, you have a bad safety valve. If the voltage is low, you have a weak igniter and the igniter will need to be replaced. 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
Cant find model# jenn-air down draft oven. Gas igniter bad, need model# ? Looks like AP4041425.
Answer Patty, the model number can be located on the center of the vent trim with the door open, on the oven side of the door jamb with the door open, if it has a bottom drawer it can be on the sides or inside of the drawer. Thanks!
