When oven is on shutoff will not stay at set temperture, have to keep resetting.
Answer Joe D.
You will want to check the oven sensor on the unit to ensure that there is 1090 ohms of resistance. If there is not then the oven sensor is faulty and would need to be replaced.
A couple of years ago I asked for help and was told my control panel needed to be replaced. I replaced it and the oven has been working beautifully until recently. Now even though it says it's on and heating it's not igniting. It started with not igniting until the countdown reached 8 minutes or so and the other day there was a minute left and it hadn't ignited. The pilot light is lit as I can see a flame.
My Question is ---- is the igniter bad or does it need cleaning? How do you go about cleaning it? and is changing it something I can do myself?
Thanks for you time. Deb
Answer Deb, You are most likely seeing the igniter glowing, you don't have a pilot light on your range. The igniter 3186491 has to glow "white"
hot and produce a 3.2 to 3.6 amp draw on the ignition system, in order to open the safety valve and allow the bake burner to ignite. A weak igniter can glow (orange in color) but not produce the amperage. There is no need to "clean" igniter, there is no process for that. If you have some basic tools and some basic skills you should be able to replace the igniter yourself. Remove power to the range, remove the oven door, and racks, remove the oven bottom panel(floor) then remove the flame spreader from the burner. Remove the two mounting screws, disconnect the wires from the cabinet harness and reverse the procedure, and test the oven for ignition and heat.
