Hello
Welcome to Fixya
My name is Huum,

The igniter is bad even if you see the spark.
the igniter must first get red hot with enough amps to ignite the gas or the valve will not open or if ope it will shut off!

Is there a pilot for the oven that can go out and needs to be manually relit? I have alrady replaced the igniter


The Whirlpool SF357 (SF357PEKQ0 specifically) does not have a pilot light; only the electric igniters that light the gas on demand for both the range and the cooktop.

On my gas ovens, checking the ignition is easiest with the warming drawer removed and the cover plate removed from the oven. Do you see a glow at the igniter? If yes, then the igniter is probably working. If not, check that the wiring harness between the igniter and the control board is connected and giving the appropriate power.

The next thing to check is that the oven gas valve is open. (Mine have a separate valve here.) Then check that nothing is blocking the gas line and that the regulator is opening and closing properly. We had an old oven that would start the gas flow and come up to temperature normally during the pre-heat time. However, when the oven cooled, the regulator wouldn't reopen thus the oven wouldn't stay at temperature. The regulator could be forced to open with a tap to the mechanism when the oven needed to come back to temperature.

Whirlpool has manuals and parts lists for the SF357 ranges on their site. https://www.whirlpool.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/OCManualsLiteratureSearchResultView?catalogId=10561&langId=-1&storeId=10211 . The installation guide is here: https://www.whirlpool.com/digitalassets/MLPDF/Installation%20Instructions%20-%208273169.pdf . The owner's manual is here: https://www.whirlpool.com/digitalassets/MLPDF/Use%20and%20Care%20Guide%20-%208522776.pdf .

I hope this helps.

(In the case of our old oven, we replaced the entire range. The difference in price between a new range and the needed parts (and labor) to fix the old one were nearly the same.)

this one is hands on fix,many times the spark ignition the one that makes the clicking noise is clicking on a different position,so you most look inside the oven to see the spark, you can see it better at night or when is dark to see the spark, that spark is right at the tip of the oven pilot, make sure you see the spark lighting the pilot.as long as the pilot does not ignite.the clicking sounds continues making the noise. if the pilot lights the noise will stop, if the oven burner does not light after pilot is being for about 1 minute and a half the safety valve needs replacing

Oven not working properly


I just solved this problem with my GE gas range. I waited forever for the oven to warm up. The igniter would glow, light the burner and burn for a minute or so and go out. It would repeat this process till oven reached operating temp, which took forever. Problem is in the igniter. It may be glowing, but it is not letting the gas valve stay open, because it is not hot enough to create resistance in it to keep gas valve open. I had replaced the thermostat thinking it was the problem. The good part about it was I could take it back because my buddy works at supply house. Once the igniter was replaced, the oven fired up and stayed lit till operating temp was reached. It will also hold the oven temp much better. Oh yea, the igniter will stay glowing while the burner is on. Hope this helps.
