Question about Whirlpool GS475LEKS Gas Kitchen Range

1 Answer

Wirlpool gs475lems Oven will fail to light and keep temp.

The preheat works fine, but the oven will try to ignite after to keep correct heat but fails to ignite. Igniter is working but burner will not ignite. It seems that it works better sometimes when I leave the bottom drawer open. Sometimes it will ignite after the second round of the igniter but if it doesn't ignite then I will have to increase the temp setting to get it to light.

Oven & Broiler quit working on same day.


Yes, I think you have the answer. If you have the knowledge, check the electrical supply side, fuse etc. Check out your user manual in the fault finding section. The oven has a thermo switch that prevents the gas opening if theres no ignition.

Kenmore oven shuts off before preheated


On any gas appliance there is a high and a low limit temp stat which could be indipendant or on the gas valve it's self, that is faulty.
When the oven reaches temp, it cuts out. sounds like faulty over heat stat.

Oven takes forever to preheat


The way the oven works is like so:
1) User sets the desired temperature
2) Power is sent to the ignitor
3) The ignitor is then energized, drawing 3.2 amps of current
4) When the 3.2 amps is drawn, the gas safety valve is allowed to open and gas flows into the burner assembly in the oven.
5) This gas is then ignited, causing the oven to heat.
6) As the oven heats up, the oven sensor, which is the metal rod located at the top on the rear oven wall, converts the heat into an electrical signal, relaying this information to the main control which in turns displaying the temperature.
(In models with a dial thermostat, there won't be a sensor, though a metal wire with a bulbous end will be present, which is actually connected to the thermostat.)

Whirlpool Accubake Super Capacity 465 gas range. Oven won't light


Some gas ranges may take 10 or so minutes to light.
Other than that you may have a defective glow bar ignitor.
If it glows and does not light the reistance in the ignitior has failed.

Oven elements just stopped working


If I understand your use correctly, you were using the oven to heat the space? Or for baking?

Regardless, it sounds as though the elements have failed. If you used the oven for heating the space (with the door open) the broiler element comes on during preheat of the oven to get the oven to temperature more quickly. The elements are NOT designed to heat a space, and will quickly burn out if used in this manner.

Oven heat


The problem with you oven is the FFD (flame faliure device ) also known as FSD (flame safety device) The way is works is that when an oven is ignited first time the heat from the low level flame heats phail at the end of the calliary tube which in turn increases the pressure within this tube forcing open the FSD valve to open allowing full gas through. when this fails it restricts the amount of gas flowing through it leaving the oven with a small flame. these are easily repalaced but the law says it must be done by a corgi registered engineer for gas safetey reasons...But 110 % that is your fault.

Oven temp


How old is it? Does it have a pilot light or is it an electronic ignition or coil? If it has a pilot light you probably will need to replace the thermostat.
