Brand new Whirlpool Model GFG461LVB oven will not ignite

Just bought a Whirlpool gas range and it will not ignite. Top burners will ignite along with the top broiler. However, the bake and convection oven features will not ignite. You can her the sparker spart 3 times and then stop. This process repeats about every 2-3 mintues but the oven does not heat up. Tried unplugging range for 10 minutes and then plug back in. Tried to heat oven again and it does not work.

Hi, When you put the oven on bake, can you see the ignitor glowing but get no flame?
Sound like the ignitor might be getting weak and not opening the gas valve. Please let me know if this sounds like the problem.
It is common for the ignitor to go bad. Even if it glows, it can be bad.
Please let me know if I can assist you further.

Maytag Gas Oven top burner does not turn on when in bake mode


That is the way it works. If you have an convection oven then they both work in bake mode but they alternate between the two.
