Question about KitchenAid KGRC608LSS Gas Kitchen Range

Open Question

Have a Kitchenaid KGRC608 and the oven will not heat up, glowing ignitor, broiler and top burners work fine. It started out with me having to "trick" it (turn on back burner with ignitor clicking) and

With only the bottom ignitor on, the oven will heat up to about 225 degrees, but the bottom burner never will kick on.

SOURCE: 8 year old kitchenaid gas range nom fire in the oven

I went to the kitchenaid web site for parts and found a trouble shooting section. I read about how a electronic glow coil works and discovered that mine was just old and did not reach the right voltage to open the gas flow valve.

There is a problem with the power going to the relay try to check if there is a fuse before the relay. If you have voltmeter try to get the voltage reading on the supply terminal of the relay. If there is a voltage going to the relay, then the relay is the problem . Replace it with same value.

Our GE profile oven model JGsp31wet1ww oven will not heat up. When i set the oven to say 400 degrees, it just stays at 100 and never heats up. The broiler seems to work fine and the stove top gas burners...


pull out the racks and remove the bottom floor of the oven,turn it on bake,if the ignitor doesn't glow most likely it's bad,if it does glow and it doesn't ignite within 40 to 60 seconds the ignitor is bad.even though it glows doesn't mean it's good,it works by amps.it takes 3.2 amps.for a flat ignitor to open the gas valve and 2.5 amps for a round ignitor to open the gas valve.

My oven is not working The Broiler works and the stove top works fine but the oven will not heat and when you turn it on no gas comes out I tried turning it on and using a lighter but nothing happens


You gave us good clues in information!-- Thanks!

Most modern gas ovens have a device called a Glow Ignitor to light the burner.
If this ignitor has filed, it will NOT left the gas valve open-- (Good thing, right? :-) )

You say the broiler lights fine-- so let's observe something when the Broiler lights:
Do you see a bright glow near the Broiler burner?
(Usually toward the top rear of the oven--)

Well, you should see a similar bright glowing near the BOTTOM rear of your oven, for the main burner to light off-- If you do NOT see this glowing-- then you need a new ignitor-

You can remove the bottom burner cover, and dig deeper into the repair if you like-
But a new ignitor needs to be exactly like the failed one-- the safety circuit is very fussy about the exact same ignitor-- or it will not allow lighting-- even with a new 'generic' installed.

How deep do you want to go into this repair?-- Maybe it is time to call the service people into do the job?-- You can tell them that you think the ignitor needs replacing-- and approx. what will they charge you for the service call and the ignitor?

I hope this helped.

First I want to commend you for your giving us good information to start with!
So-- we know we have gas, and we know the Broiler Valve and ignitor works-- Good observation!

However-- we have no ignitor (No bright red/Yellow glow)-- like you go for the Broiler-- right?

Well, we can NOT get ignition on the main burner-- unless we have the ignitor for the main burner getting hot, and then the gas valve to that burner can light, and give you heat...

Soo-- Likely we have an ignitor failure for the Main burner---

Do you have a warranty on the stove?
Do you have a service person qualified to tackle this job?
There will be electrical work, and parts obtainment issues to deal with now---
I suggest you call the local service people for this stove, and tell that that you need to have the main gas burner ignotor replaced for this stove model number-- and see what they tell you.

Let me know if I can help more--

My Maytag Gemini Gas Range works fine as far as the four burners, the bake on the top and bottom oven, but the broiler on the top oven does not work. Is this a pilot issue? I really appreciate the help,...


If the broiler burner is not coming on it may be a bad ignitor or the ignitor may not be getting power. Observe the ignitor when you turn in on ans see if it glows at all. If not then test for power to the ignitor if you have power and not glowing or lighting replace the ignitor. If it glows but does not light the ignitor may just be weak replace it.

Broiler works, oven settings - no flame, no heat.


Hi, it sounds like the oven ignitor might be bad. Remove the floor panel inside the oven and you will see the ignitor attached to the burner assembly. Turn the oven on and see if it glows. You can test the connection for the ignitor and see if it gets 120V to it. The most common problem with the gas oven is the ignitor. Most of the time, the ignitor glows but is not strong enough to open the gas valve.
Please let me know if this was helpfull or if I can assist you further.

Thanks

KENMORE GAS STOVE OVEN LOWER BURNER WON'T WORK


Most likely a hot-surface ignitor has failed. If it doesn't consume enough current, the gas valve won't open. It's usually a fairly easy fix, once you gain access to the ignitor and have a new one to replace it with. Make sure you unplug the range...

Amana arg7800ww oven will not come up to temperature.


Your gas valve has a thermocouple circuit that will not let gas flow until the ignitor is hot enough. A failed ignitor can still glow but not be hot enough to open the gas valve. Replace your ignitor.
