Question about Whirlpool GS445LELS Gas Kitchen Range
Our gas range will not ignite. The oven had been cooking for 90 min and the flame seemed to go out about 10 min before time. After that, the oven would not start again. The igniters make a 'clicking' sound, but the flame never ignites. Any ideas? and is this something an amateur can fix? thanks for any help.
Not a gas flow problem because i can manually light the burner just fine

The good news for you is that your gas provider, the folks who bill you for the gas offer a free service whereby they will send out a technician to adjust your stove for no cost.

The igniter is probally on it's way out. You will likely start noticing it taking longer to cook or not reaching temp easily. The poof is the gas valve partially opening then the igniter finally ignites it. The flame is usually smaller or yellower.
The problem is usually the igniter not reaching the correct amp draw .When the igniter does not reach the correct amp draw it may allow the gas valve to partially open or not open at all. The igniters are inexpensive and easy to replace. This video will walk you thru the correct procedure for testing an oven igniter. It may be a different model but the testing will be the same.You can also enter your model # for diagrams and illustrations of your specific model. Not all models are available. All parts come with installation instructions.
