change the bottom ignighter just because it glowes doesn't mean its getting hot enough to open the safety valve you should see two screws at the bottom of the floor of the oven cavity after removing the racks remove those and remove the floor then you will see a deflector shield remove that to get access to the ignighter take out the two screws and install the new ignightor and reassemble

SOURCE: oven quit working

Hi. this is common in many old gas range ovens. There is a set of coils that are attached to the gas valve assembly. These coils , when activated and operational, open and close the main and secondary valves in this unit. They are controlled by the main ERC(clock/oven control board). I recommend checking these coils and there respective wiring harnesses. if the clips and wires are worn and corroded, simply replace the entire wire harness.

Now, if the wiring harness and wires that are connected to the coils look good and there are no signs of corrosion on the wires and connector clips, this will confirm that the coils have failed and you will need to replace them.

You can also preform an additional test with a multimeter. simply connect your multimeter or voltage meter to both terminal posts located on the coils. once your meter is connected, start the oven cycle. you should register some sort of current during this test at this time. if the current is sufficient and the coils do not initiated the valve action, this will confirm coil failure. if the meter dosen't register a current during oven operation, this will confirm ERC(control) failure. you will have to replace the Oven control board in this case.

The Most common issue in this situation will most defiantly be the coil assembly and not the control.

Please rate and god bless:)

Onece the range selector is turned on the light comes on but soon goes out, if you move the selector a little the light comes back on, this stove was made around 1952. Thank You, Dave


Are you talking about the oven temperature control? When turned on to the selected temperature the oven indicator will light and the element will work. When the oven reaches the desired temperature the power will shut off to the element and the indicator light will go out. When the oven cools slightly the indicator light and the element will again turn on. When it does turn off and you turn the knob slightly to increase the temperature the indicator light and element will come on again as you are asking it to heat to a higher temperature. This is normal oven operation.

Whirlpool gas range error code f2


Hi sauerteig_j,

Whirlpool F2 error code indicates that oven temperature is too high. And to fix this problem:

1. Look for welded relay contacts on bake or broil relays. If this happens, replace oven control (also called clock or ERC).

2. For SELF CLEAN models: check door lock operation.

3. Look for a high resistance connection or any other cause of high resistance in the oven temperature sensor circuit. Check sensor, sensor harness and sensor harness connection at sensor and oven control. Replace sensor if found defective.

Remember: Oven control (ERC) measures resistance of sensor circuit, not actual oven temperature.

For replacement part you may contact Sears at 1-800-252-1698; M-F 6:30 AM-10:30 PM - Sat 7:00 AM-9:30 PM - Sun 7:30 AM-9:30 PM - All times Central. Just have your model # ready when you call.

Hope this helps.

Thank you for using FixYa.

Oven control, possibly thermostat or oven selector switch


my dacor ER36G oven will not ignite. The top range works perfectly. When I turn on the oven, I don't even hear the gas or the ignition sequence as I used to. The heat preset light just blinks and the oven will not engage. I have reset the circuit breakers just in case, but nothing works.
