Question about Whirlpool GS460 Gas Kitchen Range
The over works sometimes but for things like cooking a turkey or baking a pie it will not maintain the temperature setting. What do I do?
This range has Direct Spark Ignition System (DSI). If ground is lost or not present on the DSI board (located to right of the display board when looking at the rear), the DSI will not detect the flame. The easiest way to determine if this is what is happening is by listening for the flame to start. If you hear a woosh (flame starting) but still hear the sparking, the DSI system is not detecting the flame. It will re-try three times then lock the system out (there will be no indication on the front panel) and will need to stop the bake cycle and re-start.
To fix, remove the top panel in the back and use an ohmmeter to measure the ground from the DSI board (upper right board) to the ground pin of the power plug. I would recommend placing a starlock washer on all the grounds to prevent this from happening.
