My oven clicks to turn on the heat, but wont stay on to heat the oven. And when it does light up the heat doesn't stay high
Answer Holly, You didn't mention an issue with the Broil burner. If it is working correctly, then the issue is most likely in the DSI spark module W10331686 The "re ignition" circuit in the control is weak and or malfunctioning and not allowing the burner to re ignite during the bake cycle
I have a Whirlpool Gas oven, approx 5 yrs old, Model # #SF362LXTS0.
This gradually started over a 1 month period. The oven ignites, heats up and then cuts out. The broiler works, the range top works without issues... It's just the oven.
I had tested the temp probe with my multi meter, I was getting 0 for ohms, when I should be reading approx 1100 ohms, I even cut the jacket back a bit and still came up with 0. So I bought a new temp probe, which ohms fine..
with the new probe, it does stay lit a bit longer (15 -25 min) , but cuts out still.
Can anyone please help direct me to where I should be looking next?
Gas valve / Circuit Board / or the ignitor-gas burner..
My oven's gas burner has the ignitor riveted to the side, IT IS NOT the heater element type, looks more like what you have on your grill outside..
I appreciate all your thoughts , suggestions and efforts....
Answer Hello Jim. If it shuts off and never lights back, you will need to replace the control board on the unit. It should cycle on and off to regulate the temp once the unit has preheated.
stove top works and .the broiler works. when the oven comes on you can hear the spark igniteor try three time and cycle out.
This is not consistant sometimes the oven works and sometimes it doesn't.
Answer Kevin, since the issue is intermittent, and it seems to apply to the bake burner ignition you'd need to suspect the DSI spark module,W10331686. The re ignition circuit in the control board for the bake burner is probably weak and intermittent.
