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.)

Pilot light stays lit but oven will not stay lit


I would be interested to know just how long it is that the oven does stay lit. All ovens, gas and electric, cycle off and on throughout a baking cycle, to maintain the proper temp. If the flames or the power to the element were to stay on at full power for the life of the food's required time in the oven it would most likely wind up charred. The temp would simply continue to rise, up and up and up. If that's what it appears to be doing, then it's just working normally. If it goes out completely and stays off, doesn't come back on in a few minutes, then it may be in a keep warm mode. Many ranges have a TIMED BAKE cycle available, so you can set the clock to start the oven at such and such a time, cook the food and then shut off. Once it's finished with the cooking cycle, it goes into a keep warm mode, where it will come on for a short time and then go off, to maintain about 180 degrees. Not hot enough to really cook anything anymore, but hot enough to keep it warm for you when you get ready to eat.
If this seems to be the way it's acting, then look for the timed bake function on the console and set things back to a manual mode.

My Magic Chef model 9112XUB wall oven will not light. It has power and gas but will not ignite.What can I do to fix it myself?


If this model has electronic ignition, you can open up the broiler door , turn on the oven, and look to the rear of the broiler...there should be a sort of glow plug getting reddish/orange. If not, the oven won't light and you will need to obtain an ignitor for the oven. these are available through appliance parts distributors such as Bell Parts Suppy. If it is a standing pilot model, then first check to see if the pilot is lit...if it's not lit try lighting...if it won't stay lit, then the thermocouple is probably bad and will need to be replaced

Oven wont light unless you turn on a stove eye and


Hi,

Sound`s to me you need a new hot surface ignitor. Sorry to hear you may have changed the valve & regulator for nothing, but that happen`s quite often when you get the symptom`s you`ve described, I`ve even seen tech`s. do it. The reality is 9 times out of 10 when a hot surface ignition gas/lpg oven won`t light it is the ignitor.

Pick up part number 74007498 for approx. $40 and you`ll be cooking.

Hope that help`s. If so please take a second and rate the solution I provided here at fixya for you.

Good luck.

The dial on my Avanti 24" oven is hard to determine which way to turn. When I hear the clicking sound, as the burners do, next I hear the lighting, whoom. Shall I start it at a low temp and then in a few...


It sounds like you are having an excesive buildup of gas pre-ignition. You should hear no "Whooom" sound.

The ignition assemble likely needs to be cleaned of rust, dirt, grease etc. That is the typical cause if improper ignition, gas buildup pre-ignition etc.

The problem of not staying lit is caused by either the flame sensor not sensing flame, (which may need to be cleaned or replaced.) or that the flame is simply being blown out by the air movement as a result of the sudden combustion of excessive gas build up.

So, to summarize, the ignition and burner assemblies need to be cleaned, and the flame sensor may need to be replaced.

OVEN WON'T STAY LITE MOST OF TIME & DOESN'T HEAT WELL:


Most problems with gas ranges have to do with the flame—either it isn't quite right or it's nonexistent. Many new gas ranges have "electronic ignition," a spark igniter that starts the flame as gas flows through the burners f, when you turn on a burner, it fails to spark but you hear sparking at other burners, the igniter or the burner switch probably needs replacement by an appliance repairperson. If your range has a pilot light, be sure the pilot light is lit.

have nice time..!! arte the solution!!

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

GE oven


Yup...I believe this may have been an issue with some GE models. I seem to remember a problem where some models had problems staying lit after preheating. The fix was replacing the oven thermostat. Now...the normal cycle for an oven lighting is just what you described. The glow igniter will glow first, followed by the gas valve opening, followed by ignition. Once the oven reaches optimum temperature it is normal for the gas to shut off and come back on to maintain oven temperature. However, if this is going on in a frequent fashion with the oven never getting warm, your guess is probably a correct one. Good luck to you.
