The gas leak can be the safety valve. in side the oven where the burner sits on you have to remove the burner to get to it.

  • my own stove have the problem with the gas leak on the safety valve, only 2 years old. for the temperature check that the ignitor does not take more than 60 to 70 seconds to light the burner, if that's the problem the oven is trying to maintaining temperature but it can not because the safety valve does not open on time. so the ignitor needs replacing.

Both oven glow bars stay lit oven takes very long time to heat up and is 25 degrees off from true temp using a oven thermometer. takes over an hour to reach 450 and has a gas smell when unit turned on. any...


The problem is usually the igniter not reaching the correct amp draw .When the igniter does not reach the correct amp draw it may allow the gas valve to partially open or not open at all. Sometimes the igniter glows but still does not reach the correct amp draw to fully open the gas valve. The igniters are inexpensive and easy to replace. This video will walk you thru the correct procedure for testing an oven igniter. It may be a different model but the testing will be the same.You can also enter your model # for diagrams and illustrations of your specific model. Not all models are available. All parts come with installation instructions.

Oven takes too long to reach temp and the smell of gas


Sounds like a weak ignitor is not opening the gasvalve completely. Only testing the amp the ignitor draws will confirm. It could also be a sticking valve. Have a professional verify, this is not safe.

Ka gas range the glow bar comes on but it takes sometimes 15 to 20 min before gas is supplied to burner in oven and finaly ignites


Hi, this sounds like a weak igniter, it would have to be a gas oven and the symptoms usually are: takes longer than normal to ignite the burner, may or may not smell gas in the oven, if it does light the burner, there may be delayed ignition (pop), does not maintain set temperature or burner does not come on fully, eventually won't heat at all. On gas ovens, a glo igniter is like a light bulb, the more you cook, the faster it wears out. Bottom line, needs to be replaced. Good luck.

KitchenAid gas range superba not reaching/registering right temp.


Always preheat your oven and let it cycle at least 2 times. Your unit may show 350 but the manufactures know that it is not 350. When it registers preheated, it really means that it is at an acceptable temperature to start cooking. If you think that it may not be calibrated correctly, your owner's manual will have instructions on how to recalibrate your oven. You will be able to raise or lower the temperature by + 25 degrees or - 25 degrees. As far as the gas smell, you will from time to time smell a gas smell with a gas oven especially if you are right at it when it ignites. If you are smelling gas when it is not in use then you should be extremely concerned.

Gas oven not heating


waka,

I'm guessing that there is an issue of some kind with flow of heat inside the oven. Gas ovens use the hot air/gas exhaust to heat up the oven. Flames mean heat. The flames should be about half an inch long or so. If not, there may be an issue, but I don't think that is it.

Have you lined the oven with foil? It is possible that vents from the boiler section are closed up? That will prevent heat from reaching the oven.

Oven section not working


beaver, the F5-E5 is the code for self clean temp not achieved after 30 minutes. This makes sense since you are having trouble pre-heating your oven on regular bake. I believe your ignitor is not drawing enough amps to open the gas valve all the way. Sometimes these can be erratic, work sometimes, sometimes won't. Your part number for the oven ignitor is 9782065.

Oven takes a very long time to heat.


Do your burners work ok when the oven is on? if not you may have low supply pressure to your range or the regulator may be limiting the gas flow. Also, I have a wolf gas range and it takes 30 minutes to heat to 350 as well, haven't timed it to 400. Has it always taken that long? Another thing to check is the door seal. If its not sealing it could cause a long preheat. If the door seal is smashed flat and/or not soft it needs replaced. Hope this helps.
