SOURCE: Oven, Broiler inopperable

Sandwich, is it your bake or broil thats not working? You have two ignitors, one for bake and broil. One of them is your culprit. This is not a hard job. The post header says broil not working so the part number for that is WB13K0003. Bake ignitor is WB13K0004. To get at the bake ignitor you have to remove the oven bottom inside panel, remove the flame spreader (both easy). The click you are hearing is the board relay sending power to the ignitor. The ignitor has to draw so many amps to open the gas valve. The oven is pilotless. Catriver..post back.

Hi The gas valve will not open until the ignitor pulls enough amps around 3.2 . so from the infromation you wroke you may need a new ignitor..let me know what you can find out..

SOURCE: GE Spectra XL44 Gas Oven, flashing "Locked Door". Can't use oven or close door

I had the same problem happen tonight. I have an XL44 self-cleaning gas range. We unplugged it for several minutes and pressed 'cancel' a bunch of times--neither worked. We finally lucked out--opened the oven door and pressed a black button on the upper left side of the front of the oven. It turned out the flashing words and unlocked our door. Weird. There was nothing in the manual about this...

SOURCE: Oven Door Exploded

This fault has occurred on a number of these ovens and I've seen it happen occasionally on other makes and models.

The explosion is spectacular, but is actually due to a safety feature as all modern ovens which use glass doors must use toughened glass. This is heat-treated glass which is resistant to most knocks, but when it does break it shatters into lots of small granules instead of sharp edged shards.

In use, heat makes everything on the oven expand a little and afterwards everything cools down and returns to normal size. The problem is that the glass and metals do not expand or contract at the same rate and so there's always the chance that the differential expansion between the glass door and the metal hinges can put enough stress on the door to make it shatter. The engineers who designed your oven knew this and will have tried to ensure that the hinge design could cope, but it may be that they didn't do well enough.

The other possibility is that the door has a manufacturing fault: when toughened glass is manufactured the glass gets a lot of stress built into it (that's why it seems to explode when it breaks). After the glass has cooled down in the factory every one is supposed to undergo a couple of simple automated tests which will either cause the glass to immediately shatter or will cause it to be returned to the ovens to have the excess stresses removed. Sometimes these tests are not fully effective at identifying the "bad apples".

I'd strongly advise you to contact the manufacturer of your oven as the door should not fail in normal use even beyond the warranty period. What you have suggests a design or manufacturing fault and you may be offered a free repair without admission of liability.

How to replace Sony Wega KFWE42S1 lamp

It all depends on the type of lamp and manufacturer u has, some brands are compatible that is always a good thing.

Example:
LG, Zenith, Mitsubishi, RCA, Samsung, and some Panasonic they use. Philips so you can save money we just need to know if the model is compatible.

The cost is around $85.00 the cheap ones $114.00 Philips and like $299.00 again depends on the brand and ho is the one that sales!

There are a lot of good online stores that can send you a lamp usually for a lower price here are a few links that I can found if you need them.

I have a Fridgidaire stove FE369COSE. Ran self cleaning cycle but now oven door won't unlock. Oven is cool but an error code of f9 is flashing. Does anyone have a solution? jadimin


I've had this happen with my Frigidaire stove too. The "locked" light is on.

Normal 0 false false false MicrosoftInternetExplorer4 /* Style Definitions */ table.MsoNormalTable {mso-style-name:"Table Normal"; mso-tstyle-rowband-size:0; mso-tstyle-colband-size:0; mso-style-noshow:yes; mso-style-parent:""; mso-padding-alt:0in 5.4pt 0in 5.4pt; mso-para-margin:0in; mso-para-margin-bottom:.0001pt; mso-pagination:widow-orphan; font-size:10.0pt; font-family:"Times New Roman"; mso-fareast-font-family:"Times New Roman"; mso-ansi-language:#0400; mso-fareast-language:#0400; mso-bidi-language:#0400;} Open the oven door and locate the light switch. Hold it in - sometimes it makes a noise and resets it.

If that doesn't work, push the Clean button and the Cancel button simultaneously and hold for about 30 seconds. The “locked” light should disappear. If it is working, you’ll hear a mechanical hum as it resets.

Placing date/time on the photo


Oddly enough Canon thought that people would only want date stamps on "Postcards". The date stamp options is only allowed when you select the "Postcard" size (1600X1200) in the function menu.

I hope this helps!
