Question about Whirlpool GY396 Electric Kitchen Range

1 Answer

Oven or broil does not work

Live in south Florida. I have a whirl pool range model number GY396LXGT5. Neither Broil l nor Bake works. The display is fine and the four top burners works well.
All the buttons on the control works, timer, clock etc. When either bake or broil is pressed,I hear a click sound, I assume its the relay closing? but there is nothing happening to the oven/bake coils. They stay cold.
What could cause neither bake or broil to work?

    I had the same problem. Everything else worked including the clock. We did have a power blink the other day, but this is the first time we used the oven. I have 25 years experience with high tech electronics. So I did what I have done to fix some things in the past. Unplug the appliance and wait 2 minutes, then plug it back in. It works great again!!!

Unplug the range.
I would open the control console and locate the BAKE/BROIL terminals on the Oven control. I would reverse the wires,plug the range in and try again.
Sounds to me like someone has changed out a part and wired it wrong.

GE oven bake igniter is bad ?


Yes, it should work fine to swap them. (fortunately the bake and broil igniters are often the same part number on GE gas ranges, as as opposed to many other brands) Of course now you broil will not work, but you should be able to get your oven going again.

My broiler works - but the oven does not - GE Dual Fuel range


Thanks for providing the full model number, which allows us to look up part numbers and see exploded views of your product.
Most likely the bake ignitor is bad (even if it still glows, it may not draw enough amperage to allow the gas safety valve to open). One way you can test this on your model is to swap out the broil ignitor for the bake ignitor, as they are the same part number on your model. (part number WB13T10045) The broiler is normally used much less than the oven, so the part does not fail very often on the broiler. You will have to take the cover off the floor of the oven, then the flame spreader, to reach the burner area. The ignitor is the rectangular part at the back, on the side of the burner. (only two wires to deal with) (By the way, for future reference, your model number ends is SS, as in stainless steel, not a 55)

JBP26 Oven broil and bake do not work and the oven light is flash


If you have 240Volts to the range and BOTH elements don't work, it sounds like the L2 OUT relay on the oven control is bad. Bake and Broil share this line and this problem is not un-common. Make sure you have proper incoming voltage first. Turn breaker off and back on to make sure both poles are set.

What is the complete model # from the sticker on the range? I will need that so I can look into this for you. I will say that I have seen, in several cases, where the oven control gets a surge and fries after an element has broken.
