Question about KitchenAid KGRT607 Gas Kitchen Range

1 Answer

Oven is slow to start

Recently the bake feature has been sporadic. The broiler element starts right up but the bake element doesn't. I noticed that if I turn the burners on the range on and off a few times the gas for the oven will start and it will light. It doesn't appear that the operation of the broiler or burners decreases the gas flow anywhere. Any ideas? Thanks

Re: oven is slow to start

Dear Friend,

I had the same problem and the first step you should take is to replace the bake ignitor, you most likely to have a weak ignitor. If this doesn´t solve your problem, than your gas valve is failing. Despite the broiler is ok, the gas valve has independent channels for bake and broiler, so it´s possible for one to fail and the other is good. But i believe that changing nthe ignitor will solve it.

I have a Kenmore 790.94479801 electric range. While using the Bake function, I noticed that the broiler element was on and the oven had gotten very hot. I hit the Stop button and noticed a small puff of...

When the broil function is off, check for continuity between the broiler relay output terminals. If there is no continuity, check for an external short. If there is continuity when the broiler is supposed to be off, you need to replace or repair the board.You can get your old board repaired at

My broiler and range work but my "bake" option will not produce any heat??? Please help!!!

If this is an electric range, it sounds like you have a bad bake element in the oven. The broiler and bake features each have their own heating element. Thats why the broiler still works. The following link explains how to replace a heating element in an electric range:

If the model range you have this question listed under is correct, the part number for a replacement element is WB44K5012. It lists for about $25 at

If you have questions, or if the model number is not correct, please post back with your information so that I may be able to provide you with better assistance.. I hope you find this information helpful.

GE JBP30 oven bottom element not working after being replaced

I would be looking at the bake relay on teh coven control board. Using a voltage meter test the output voltage when energizing the bake feature. Be sure to remove the bake element wire coming from the bake element to the control. Test this terminal without the bake element wire attached. From the terminal with one meter probe to the neutral on the terminal block (where your cord attaches to), you should read 110 volts when energized and 0 voltge when shut off. What are you reading? If I can help further, I am here.....

Waiting to hear from you,

the broiler came on automatically??? not a sensor issue. sounds as if you have a broken wire perhaps, or a faulty control panel energizing the broil element w/o being prompted to. does it say its broiling when element comes on??

Oven not working

Sounds like the oven control which is the clock is bad. The relay for the bake element has probably gone bad and will need to replace the control. You should check continuity on the bake element. If it shows resistance then it is ok. Also, on some models the overlay for the oven control is a separate part. If it is you will need to buy it also.

Oven will not heat to requested temperature

Shaffy, When baking only the bake element should heat. When broiling only the broil element (upper) should heat. Your oven is a Kitchenaid, you have a 5 year warranty on any electronic element or control board. You may have a temperature sensor that is not working right. The oven just might need to be calibrated, the instructions would be in your owners manual. Your bake element might be failing, it would have to be ohmed out. You also need to verify that the bake element is getting 240V. when turned on. back
