Question about Amana AGDS902 Gas Kitchen Range

1 Answer

Amana first addition oven (approx 10 years old) will not heat

The oven will come on but will not hold temperature to bake consistently. On the side of the oven is what I believe is a thermocoupling. I have successfully used a scratch pad to remove any coating or residue which has temporarily solved the problem. Also, when the oven comes on, it is slow to come on and to heat up. Could you please tell me what this part is and if replacing it will solve my problem

I had a similar problem with my Amana oven, also about 12 years old. It was slow to heat and sometimes wouldn't reach the set oven temp. I replaced the oven igniter on a tip that it wasn't drawing enough current to open the gas valve solenoid. That did the trick. It starts immediately and heats to the right temp. Good luck. Joe

I have a Gas Amana Range. The stove top works fine, but the oven will not heat when I select a temperature or broil. I can hear it making noise, but still no heat!


Hi.

If the oven is not baking or broiling test the temperature probe sensor located inside the oven cavity. To test the sensor read impedance (Ohms) using a multimeter. If the reading is infinity, then the sensor must be replaced.

If sensor is OK, the problem is usually either broiling or baking. In that case check igniter and valve coils, the flame sensor does not fail very often.

Regards.

Amana oven will not hold temperature


First check the temperature probe if that checks out good the problem is the bake element is failing. Here is a couple links on checking and replacing these parts

Amana, ACS3350, gas slid - in range, the oven will not turn


I just had the same problem. I had it repaired and it was the oven ignitor. Labor and Parts $185. I now have an additional problem and I have to call the repair person back. The oven starts up and preheats to temp I set of 350 degrees. Then after awhile it will shut off and after another few minutes the clock will come back on and blink. I will repress oven bake and it will go for a short time and then shut off. I don't know what the problem is yet. I am totaly dis gusted with this stove. The stove is only 8 years old!

Hi Tom. Salesmen love the phrase 'self-clean'. As a Tech I came to know this function as 'self-destruct'. The entire oven locks down so that owners cannot release air inside the oven that reaches 700-800 degrees during this 3hr. cycle. The control board routes max current through its circuits for most of this time, and over repeated cycles, causes eventual failure in almost all boards. Symptoms and errors vary- consistent with multiple failures of either resistors at power junctions, or internal processor errors that accompany heat related damage. FIRST- disconnect power and check resistance for elements- broil/bake/conv. If all have resistance and are not OPEN, control is probably bad. Control part # AP4422522 Whirlpool available for $157.52 or so thru local or on line parts. Installation is not difficult......power Off..... Advice- drip pans, aluminum foil, if boil over is possible---protect from contact with bottom of oven. Avoid using 'self-clean' by preventing or minimizing spills. Hope this helps- Thanks- ED

Oven not heating up but only broiler works heating element looks ok


Hi There
I have found some stuff for you to read and hope this will help you get you in the right direction.let me know how this goes.
It won't bake Usually, when an oven won't bake, it's because the bake element is burned out. The bake element is the black, pencil- thick tube at the bottom of the oven. When the oven heats, the element glows red. This element has an expected life-span of several years. It may last for only one; it may last for many more. When the element burns out, you need to replace it. It bakes poorly Here are two instances of when food "bakes poorly:" When the food you're baking is done on top but not on the bottom--or when baking just takes far too long to finish--the bake element may be burned out. You may get fooled into thinking it's working, because the oven is hot inside. But many electric ovens use the broil element, too, during the preheat and bake cycles. So the food may be getting heated only by the broil element, which causes poor baking results. If the bake element is burned out, replacing it should solve the problem. Otherwise, you need to further troubleshoot the oven's electrical system to locate the defective wire or component. When the temperature is consistent but too high or too low, it could be one of several different things. First check to see if the thermostat sensing bulb has come loose from its holder. It could be lying on the floor of the oven or resting on the heating element. This would cause the oven to not heat correctly. If the thermostat bulb is not dislodged, it's likely that the thermostat or sensor is either mis-calibrated or defective. Electronic ovens with a digital display use a sensor to monitor oven temperature. To solve temperature problems for these models, you may need to replace the sensor. On some digital-display models, you can calibrate the temperature using the key pad. See your operator's manual for details. Ovens without a digital display often use a mechanical system for controlling temperature. On many of these units, you can remove the thermostat knob and adjust the knob itself to more accurately represent the actual setting of the thermostat. If, when you remove the knob, there's a screw on the back of it with a small calibration plate, you can loosen the screw, adjust the plate, then tighten the screw again. If the knob isn't adjustable, and the oven temperature is off by more than 30 to 40 degrees, you need to replace the thermostat to solve the problem. Thank you for writing to fix ya.
Best Regards Richard

Oven temperature


Replace the bake igniter in the bottom of the oven. It corrodes over time and as the resistance increases it finally reaches a point where the voltage is two low to open the gas valve. It's a ten minute job and the part cost $45-65.

Oven will not heat past 220 degrees


Check your bake element, I had the exact same problem and found the bake element had burned in half. The broil element comes on during preheat and kicks off at around 220 degrees.

Oven will not heat to requested temperature


Shaffy, When baking only the bake element should heat. When broiling only the broil element (upper) should heat. Your oven is a Kitchenaid, you have a 5 year warranty on any electronic element or control board. You may have a temperature sensor that is not working right. The oven just might need to be calibrated, the instructions would be in your owners manual. Your bake element might be failing, it would have to be ohmed out. You also need to verify that the bake element is getting 240V. when turned on. Catriver...post back
