Kitchenaid KGRA806 Oven Won't Ignite

I have a kitchenaid KGRA806. When I turn the oven on I hear the fan spin up and then I hear two clicks which sounds like an igniter coming from the bottom of the oven. But neither the top igniter or bottom igniter in the oven makes a spark. What needs to be replaced and how do I replace it? Thanks.

    I have the same problem but it is only with the oven not the burners... we have had a repairman come in twice and both said it was the mainboard and replaced it, but it only worked for a short while each time.

Electric gas igniters sometimes get stuck in one position causing a clicking sound. The clicking sound that you hear is the electric arc that is pulsing from the igniter conductor (wire) to ground (the gas burner). It receives power from the electrical outlet that the stove is plugged into.
Residue from food and sometimes cleaning products may be preventing the igniter from producing a spark (Arc) to the base of the burner. This is a common problem that occurs when the stove has been cleaned or food is allowed to build up. Make sure that the igniter and the burner base are clean and dry. This will help with proper operation. Oven cleaner and a small tooth brush may be used to accomplish this. Another problem with ignition may occur if you have too little (touching) or too much space between the igniter and the base of the burner; it will prevent the burner from igniting. You should only have a little more space than the thickness of a nickel between the burner base and the igniter. A good “blue” arc from the igniter to the burner base is optimal. If this doesn’t work, you may need to replace the electric igniter module. Good luck.

It is likely that the ignitor needs to be replaced. If the range does not sense the proper amount of resistance in the ignitor, it will not turn on the gas valve for the lower burner. If the broiler is still working, it would further this thinking, as it has a separate ignitor.

Feel for you you expect it to work I work on these everyday 95% of the problems stem from the install not enough room left for proper air circulation when you turn on the unit and start a bake cycle do you hear a click this would be the heat relay closing also does the cooling fan come on you should feel air coming out below the door if so good without being there to test I would guess either an open TOD from self cleaning or improper voltage

My KCMS1555SSS-2 will run only if I partially depress the door open button.

<- That is likely a loose, misaligned, or broken door switch or door switch mount.

If you are hearing a clicking sound, that would be the igniter trying to light the gas, however you said elements not heating up which says it's electric... hmmm. If it's electric, try the broiler and see if the element comes on. It's pretty easy to troubleshoot by process of elimination. By all means do not try and repair it yourself unless you are qualified working with electrical.
