Question about Kenmore 30464 / 30465 / 30469 Gas Single Oven

1 Answer

Oven makes poofing sound when in use

It takes a long time to heat to desired temp and then it makes a poofing sound like the pilot or something keeps needing to re-ignite. I don't smell gas or anything. The burners all work as does the broiler with no problems. Is this an ignitor problem? Kenmore gas range approx 11 years old.

Oven Won't Heat To Desired Temp / Burner Quits Working Sometimes

The temperature sensor in the oven needs to be replaced. Here is the part to order. As far as the top element, lift the top up and look for lose or broken wires on the element. Keep me posted.

Maytag gas oven takes a long time heat and smells of gas.

Important---if you smell gas--I'd be very very careful---could be your control valve or lines to it are malfunctioning or leaking. You might have to call in an expert repair person. How old is the oven? Some preliminary checks you might make are: Do you have a pilot lite or preheaters on the unit? If a pilot lite, make sure it is lit. An unlit pilot lite could sometimes give the smell of gas if malfunctioning. If so, there is is a procedure for lighting the pilot lite--check your user or installation manual. If you have pre-heaters make sure they are lighting up. Normally you have one for the top broiler burner, and one for the bottom oven burner. Check your preheater(s) by selecting either broiler or oven and visually checking to see if they are warming up. After 15 seconds or so, they should be turning bright red. You will see some light coming from them. Check one pre-burner at a time. If they do not come on quickly, shut off the associated valve. Again, be very, very careful with any buildup of gas. It could cause an explosion. At the least it could make you sick.

I have a commercial garland air deck gas oven model G56PB its not staying heated to the set temp. it will heat up to the set temp. then five minutes later the tempreture will drop and will not heat up to...

I have seen Garland's have issues with the pilot light. see if you can watch the cycle.It may takes several minutes. I have seen where the pilot actually lifts off the pilot assembly and go out and cause oven to fail. Turning off and on resets the failure and sometimes it will light. Start there and be patient.

My GE oven heating element heats red hot no matter what temp I put the oven on

Something is probobly wrong with the thermostat, it gets hot to warm up, but should lessen as it reaches your desired temp. If the thermostat is bad it will just keep going.

Wolf oven - oven clicks continuously

This sounds like you have a flame switch getting ready to go out. The reason you are hearing the ticking noise is that after the ignition is satisfied the flame switch is not detecting and sending a signal to continue to try for ignition.
