Question about Kenmore 33464 / 33465 / 33469 Gas Single Oven

Open Question

My kenmore gas oven makes a thumping sound - the gas/flame doesn't flicker, but the sound is getting more frequent. What causes this?

My kenmore gas single oven makes a thumping sound as it is heating and sometimes while cooking. It sounds almost like the gas is cutting out for a moment, but if you watch it, the flame never flickers or anything. What would be causing this? BTW, the number on my oven was not on your list - it is 31B6442P001

SOURCE: KENMORE GAS STOVE OVEN LOWER BURNER WON'T WORK

First look to see if the ignitor is coming on. Most common problem is the ignitor is weak or just bad. When the power is applied to the ignitor it glows and builds up resistance to open the gas valve then it lights. If the ignitor is weak or bad it will not build up enough resistance for gas to come into the burner. One sign of this would be a "woosh" sound when it trys to light. If the ignitor is coming on but not lighting it is most likely the ignitor is bad. Should have a full glow. Also, if the ignitor looks whiteish in color this is a sign of it going bad. You can compare to the broil ignitor to be sure. If the ignitor doesn't come on at all will need to see if you have power to the ignitor. Let me know what you find and let's solve it before you rate the solution.

SOURCE: My oven isn't warming up

can you verify the ignitor is working (ie: can you hear it sparking)?
1. If no, and you are absolutely sure there is not a buildup of propane inside the oven (or house for that matter), you can try lighting it with a match. If that works, you need to replace/reposition your ignitor.
2. If yes, do you smell propane after trying to light the oven?
A. If yes, STOP and get it fixed..
B. If no,
1. Check to see that your propane tank isn't empty?
2. Verify the regulator supplying the oven with propane is actually sending gas to the over (might need a repairman for this)

Turn the breakers off and wait 10 minutes and then on.  If this doesn't clear the problem, you'll need an electronic timer module.  Electrical spikes cause problems like this.

Takes a long time to get to temperature


If it's a gas oven and has an electric element starter (glows orange to ignite the gas), the element can be taking a long time to heat up, which means the oven doesn't light for a while and so seems to lake a long time warming up. If you turn it on and then look at the area where the flame should be (broiler) and the flame takes a long time this could be the problem. This happened to me and replacing the element fixed it. Now the flames light within 30 second or so.

I have a magic chef ovan/mic unit, when I press the bake option and set the temp the igniter goes on but the gas does not kick in. model # 54FN-5TKVWM


even though the ignitor glows it doesn't mean it's good it opens the gas valve by amps not just because it glows,if you turn on the stove and when you see it glow if the flame doesn't ignite within 40 to 50 seconds you have a bad ignitor.if you leave it alone for a few minutes does the flame ignite?the only other thing it could be is a bad gas valve but most likely it will be the ignitor

Gas oven flame yellow not blue like grill and hob rings.Flame is floppy and laboured and doesn't shoot up when turned up,could this be the thermostat Regards F Daley


Normally not the thermostat. Blue flames signify that the gas is burning clean, a yellow flame signify that some contaminate is burning with the gas. I would guess that something has leaked onto the burner or you have some corrosion build up. Try taking it out and giving it a good cleaning with a soft bristled brush and see if that is any better.

What would cause a Maytag oven burner not to have a big enough flame to get the oven enough heat? The flame is blue but only is about a third of the size it should be.


It sounds like your pressure regulator is not giving out enough gas pressure casing the restricted flame to come out. Call an Appliance Repair Service or your local Gas Company supplier to come out and check it.

Flame does not always stay on after ignition, sometimes it does and when it doesnt you open and close the door for re- light ?


Opening and closing the door will reset the ignition sequence, do not do this repeatedly as you could cause a build-up of unburned gas in your heat exchanger and damage it. Instead verify that your ignitor is glowing, then see if the burner lights and make sure the flame carries all the way down to the bottom of the burner. If the flame stalls halfway or doesn't make it all the way to the bottom in 4 seconds after 3 attempts you will experience an ignition lockout, a safety feature built into your ignition module. If this is the case your burner needs to be cleaned and serviced, have a professional do it.
If the flame is reaching the bottom of the burner but still going out after about 4 seconds then you have a dirty/broken flame sensor. You can attempt to clean your flame sensor by removing the screw that holds it into the burner. With it removed it will look like a metal rod going through some ceramic, clean the metal rod part with a wire brush or emory cloth (fine sandpaper). Replace the flame rod and try again and see if the burner stays on this time. If it still goes out your burner needs to be serviced by a licensed technician.

DCS gas oven and broiler that pulses


This sounds a lot like a defective pressure regulator. If you do not have one externally connected, then the internal regulator is faulty. If internal, it shouldn't be too difficult to DIY. Just make sure the pressure rating is the same as the one that has failed.

Kenmore oven doesnt bake


Can I assume that you determined that the bottom burner flame is burning properly? To do this, remove the oven bottom insert. The flames should have approximately 1" of blue cone and should burn with no yellowing tip, if on natural gas. (A small yellow tip on the end of the outer cone is normal with most LP gas.) The flmaes should not lift off the burner ports. If the flame is lifting, gradually reduce the air shutter until the flame stabilizes.

Go to the following website for your particular manual.
