Question about Amana AGDS902SS Gas Kitchen Range
I have an Amana model number AGDS902ss. Just this week my oven stopped working. When I turn the oven on in bake or broil mode, nothing happens. I don't smell gas and nothing to seems to engage(click) in the oven. The stove top is working fine and the clock is working fine. where do I start on the eve on christmas eve. thanks for your help.
Welcome to Fixya
My name is Huum,
When you turn the thermostat on your range on it sends 120 volts to the bake valve and ignitor. The bake valve and ignitor are wired in series and the ignitor draws all the current and heats up. As the ignitor heats its resistance changes and when it is cherry red the current switches to the gas valve and it opens. The amp draw on the ignitor needs to be 3.2-3.6 amps for the gas valve to open. The gas valve has gas to it at all times. The gas valve should open within 40 seconds after the ignitor starts to glow.
If the ignitor is glowing red and the gas valve doesn’t open the ignitor is usually the problem. Sometimes the ignitor will glow red but the resistance doesn’t change and the gas valve doesn’t draw the current.
This is not a do it your selfer!
