Thats the way stove have worked for years. If you want the top on, put it on broil, If you want temp contol and the botton on, put it on bake. You cant have your cake and eat it to. Both will not work at the same time, never have, never will.

SOURCE: oven does not light. Top ignitor glows red bottom

Since BOTH oven manifolds and surface burners are usually fed from the same source, this is probably the result of failed igniter(s) in the oven. This is assuming that your surface burners are working, or course. If you are trying to light the BAKE manifold, the broiler manifold is used on some model to speed up the pre-heat process. So, you may see the broiler attempt to light as well. If you have tried using only the broiler by itself and it still does not light, you may have a weak igniter on that manifold as well. Double check your symptoms.

If this is a GAS range, as these igniters age from repeated use, they can become weak and longer function. If you are experiencing ignition problems, the following link explains a little theory about how these igniters work and how to replace one:


http://www.fixya.com/support/r3575727-replacing_an_oven_igniter_on_a_gas_range


The burner manifolds in the oven each use a glow bar or electrode type igniter with a gas safety valve to ignite. Both oven manifolds are controlled by the Electronic Oven Control (EOC) board, which is your clock/timer on the control panel. If the surface burners work, but the oven does not, the problem is usually not a gas related issue. It can be a control board issue, but is usually a weak or failed oven igniter.

Replacement parts (if required) can be purchased at any of the following websites:

searspartsdirect.com
pcappliancerepair.com
appliancepartspros.com
repairclinic.com

Prices vary between these sites, so shop and compare. The first three sites listed also offer helpful exploded view diagrams to help you locate and properly identify the parts you need.

If you have any questions please post back with a complete MODEL NUMBER and let me know. I hope this helps you.

We cooked pizza at 500 something popped and now our oven cooks but not right , any ideas


If you have an electric range, look at both the top and bottom elements while oven is cold. Look for a rough spot like a hole in the element. You may have just burned out one of the elements. Sometimes they go bad without any marks. Turn on oven to about 350 and watch the bottom element to see if it gets red hot. Then set for broil and watch the top for the same red hot glow. If either does not glow red after 5 to 10 minutes, that element is bad.

Top Oven overheating already replaced sensor.


have an electrician check the element wiring as it should only get red when on full heat but then be controlled by the thermostat
it appears that the element is bypassed the thermostat or the thermostat is failed
for the bottom not to get red is a further indication of incorrect wiring of the elements

My oven cooks everything on the top, but not as much on the bottom. The bottom element gets red, but, I'm not sure that it gets as red as the top?

Model # mgr6775ads top oven does not come on.


I am not quite sure I understand what is not firing, but looking at the wiring diagram, I would suspect that there is a bottom burner in your top oven that is not firing.

From what I can see in the wiring diagram, the problem is going to be one of two things:

1) The top oven sensor (although it doesn't make sense that the broiler work's with this bad.), or
2) The board is bad.

I assume your measuring voltage to ground or neutral, and measurement points on the valve for S7 are the same as they are for S6. You can trace the Red and Yellow wires back to the control board. Do that, and confirm whether there is voltage to the yellow wire.
I would guess that the door switch is good on the top oven as well, because the broiler burner works.

Concealed oven


consealed bake means that the bake element on the bottom had a metal plate above it to make it easier to clean and to allow you to use the lower racks without burning the bottom of your food. To use, you want to make sure that the oven temperature that you set has been reached before putting in your food to be cooked. You also should put the racks one notch lower than you normally would. If you do this, you should have no problems with your food cooking unevenly.
