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

Where is the thermostat on range WFE540H0AW located?


The oven should still be under warranty so you should be on the retailers case where you purchased it as they are liable for warranty claims. The simmerstat which you call the thermostat is the part that the temperature knob is attached to. They pack up fairly regularly and aren't expensive or hard to replace but definitely should last more than a year and be replaced under warranty. Give the shop where you bought it hell!

The broiler works but the bake side wont heat up but does warm


Hi There
I have found some stuff for you to read and hope this will help. Let me know how it 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.
Best Regards Richard

Element Question


In most ovens, both elements are used during the warmup phase even when used for baking and after the set-temperature is reached, the lower element keeps it stable.
You should be able to detect which one is not working with your bare hand. Set the baking temperature for 250-300 degrees, leaving the oven door open. Hold your hand at different heights in the oven and you should be able to sense which element is working and which isn't within a couple of minutes.
If you still aren't certain, then try using the broil element only. If it is heating, then it's obviously OK and that would point to the bake (lower) element by default.
A final check could be done with an open door and hovering with your hand over the lower element; no heat = defective.

Amana Convection oven not controlling temp


I have just checked the baking guide in the manual and have found that it may not be us after all. (Maybe this is why they telll us to read the whole manual. Well, I never have) According to the cooking time for Baking, the range is very extensive. For example, an angel cake at 350 could take from 28-50 minutes, buscuits at 375-400 could take 8-16 minutes, layer cakes at 350-375 could take 25-40 minutes, pound cakes at 325-350 could take 45-70 minutes and fresh pies at 400-450 could take 35-60 minutes. Basically, the baking directions on the box means absolutely nothing to use Amana oven owners. We have no choice but to cook our food or baked goods until they are cooked, whenever that may be. :) Linda

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.
