Oven not heating

Hi, hope you can help me with this one. The oven is suddenly not heating. It's dead. All other functions seem fine. I press 'bake' then 'start' and the normal couple of clicks happen, but the ignitor doesn't heat, thus, no gas. No gas, no Christmas cookies. The broiler is fine. There is no error message displayed. I unplugged/replugged it several times hoping that would do something; no luck. Where do I start?? Thanks for any advise. If you fix the problem I'll send you some cookies!

    Thank you and yes, that's something I'll attempt myself. Any assistance would be most appreciated.

  • Nancy Irons Dec 16, 2006

    You were right!!! I was able to get the part locally this morning and just finished installing it. Not too difficult, only took about an hour and cost less than $55. The oven is cured. Thank you so much! Where shall I send the cookies?

    I have this same problem, which I thought was caused by the tiny red gas lever (under the warming drawer and to the back left) being bumped to the OFF position. However, after moving it back to ON, per the owner's manual instructions, I still have no function in the oven -- there is no clicking, nor is there any lighting of the gas flames. (The sealed burners on the stovetop continue to work without issue.) If anyone has experienced the same problem, I would appreciate advice. At this point, I am thinking that if this involves a service person coming it, plus labor to fix whatever might be wrong, that a full replacement of the appliance might be the best bet overall. This came with the condo, I think it was inexpensive (~$250, from what I have read) and was new in January 2002. Thanks for any input!

Nzirons, Most likely, the bake igniter is shorted out and it has to be replaced. The part number for the igniter is WB2X9154.You can buy it for $60.00 to $80.00. If you are handy and have the right tools (Philips #1 and straight 1/4" screwdrivers, 1/4" and 5/16" nut drivers or socket wrenches, wire cutter and wire stripper) you probably can do it yourself. I would recommend to call a local appliance tech. just because of the safety issue. If you are going to do it yourself, let me know and I can help you with step by step instructions. Gendos

If it were a furnace, I would say it was a thermo coupler, but on the stove it is called a thermostat. If it goes bad, it will stop the heat after a few minutes, because it can not sent the right signal to the brain. Look at the web site ereplacments and maybe someone has also had this problem with this unit. Parts can be purchased then at the web site. It is what I did for a washer and fridge. Hope this helps.

Kenmore electric range model 790 oven stopped functioning, both broiler and bake. however, oven light still comes on.


I believe there is a thermal fuse (also called a TCO or Thermal Cut-Out) located either on the back of the oven, or between the top of the oven and the cooktop that has opened up. Did this happen after running a self-clean cycle?

How do I use the self cleaning functions - kitchenaid oven


Hi,

Please allow me to help you first with some background of self cleaning functions:

Self-cleaning ovens use an approximately 900 degrees Fahrenheit (482 degrees Celsius) temperature cycle to burn off spills leftover from baking, without the use of any chemicals. A self-cleaning oven is designed with a mechanical interlock (patented in 1982) to keep the oven door locked and closed during and soon after the high-temperature cleaning cycle, which can be approximately three hours. The door stays locked to prevent burn injuries. You can open the oven door after the oven cools to approximately 600 F (315 C).

If baking spills are not wiped up after baking, there may be some smoke during an oven cleaning cycle. It is a good idea to remove any pets from the area when running the oven's self-cleaning cycle. There have been reports of oven-heated Teflon-coated items releasing odorless fumes deadly to birds.
Self-cleaning ovens have the added benefit of more insulation, which helps the energy efficiency for regular baking. This is similar in concept to an increased R-factor for home insulation.

You will also save energy costs by using the self-cleaning cycle right after baking, to make use of the already partially heated oven.

Please check this website mentioned bellow which would give you a detailed method of how to perform it:

Hope this would help you .

God Bless.

TAPPAN gas range model 30-3991-00/03 oven won't work.


the button your holding is the switch that tells the board that the consumer whats to bake.so if holding the switch causes that message to work[or oven to heat] and letting go of that button ,then no work .its that button ,but its all part of the board .just that part of its funktion is broken.,if it was lets say your oven ignitor or oven gas safty valve ,the board/oven control[the one with the button]would continue to try after you have selected bake [pushed button]or would give error code.hope that helps you. God bless you , tom
