Question about Whirlpool SF357 Gas Kitchen Range

Whirlpool Accubake Super Capacity 465 gas range. Oven won't light

When I set the temperature and press "Start" to preheat my oven, it doesn't get warm. I pulled the broiler drawer out and could see what appears to be a heating element illuminating. I can also smell gas. Is there an igniter that sparks the gas, or is that what the heating element does? In either case, my oven doesn't heat up. I don't know if this is useful, but the burners do work.

    Sorry for the delayed response, as2871910. I changed the ignitor, and that oven sparked right up. Now I can give my microwave a rest. Thanks, man!

    It seems I have the same problem and I would like to fix it myself, the repairman charges $100.00 just to walk in the house?

    Is there a diagram where its found and where can i but replacement parts

    Also, one of the top burner never lights I also followed the manual to align it but still doesn't work only when i use a lighter.

    I have the SF385 oven

I pulled the drawer out and watched as I started the oven and seen the spark arcing on the frame of the oven . It turns out a mouse chewed thru the insulation of the wire, so i wrapped it with elec. tape. Problem solved !!

SOURCE: Whirlpool Accubake Super Capacity 465 gas range. Oven won't light

I just had my ignitor replaced. The ignitor glowed but it must pull a certain amount of amps before it will allow the gas valve to open. Once the ignitor starts glowing the gas should come on within 30 seconds. Now that I saw it done I realize it was something I could have done myself. Be sure the tech does not try to slip you a used ignitor as mine tried.

This sounds like the relay on the main board has failed. You will need to see if you have power going into the control. If you do replace the ERC (main control). You can also carefully inspect the board for burn marks if you see any replace it. Here is a link that will help you check and replace this http://appliancehelponline.com/ovenerc.html

Some gas ranges may take 10 or so minutes to light.
Other than that you may have a defective glow bar ignitor.
If it glows and does not light the reistance in the ignitior has failed.
