Question about KitchenAid KGRT607 Gas Kitchen Range
On this model the oven burner should light in 50 to 60 seconds, but my oven takes more than half an hour to ligths, and sometimes the pressure of the flames are to low. I can not figure out where is the problem
Zanes, Your oven igniter is getting weak. The glowing bar next to the manifold must draw between 2.7 and 3.3 amps before the safety valve will acknowledge that it's actually hot enough to ignite gas and open up. Your igniter is most likely right at ~2.5 amps and the valve is "wanting" to open, but won't without some persuasion (hammer anyone?). The part number for your igniter is 9753108 and is available. Your local appliance parts house may not carry it, but there is a substitute that they WILL carry. Its' part number is WB2x9998. It's a universal flat igniter. Unplug the oven before repairing it, OK?

You probably have a bad igniter. Even though the igniter may still be glowing, it has probably gotten to the point where it does not draw enough current. In simple terms this is how it's suppsed to work: 1. Turn on oven. 2. Igniter begins to glow. 3. Once igniter reaches a potential of .27 to .32 amps of current, the gas valve opens. 4. Once gas valve opens, you have flames. It is common for glow igniters to become weak with age. Since your oven IS lighting (but, takes a long time), I suspect everything else is working properly. I think replacing the igniter will solve your problem. I hope this helps you.
