Oven not working, but broiler is...

Our broiler and range work fine, the oven lights are on and it says it's preheating, but never gets hot. From reading other posts it sounds like it might be the ignitor. Any thoughts? Thanks in advance, Josh

    Thanks so much.

    I believe the model number is 9752834A. If we buy the part, but want a technician to install it, who do we call - Kitchenaid?

    I have a similar problem. The ignitor glows but the burner does not light. I have run it thru the clean cycle and it started working for a few days and ingiting right away. After a week tho it started to lose temp and not stay hot. It still takes a while to get it to light and I think most of the heat at this point when I turn the oven on is from the ignitor. It is the square one my model is

Very well could be. I'm assuming the bake burner is the problem, right? Does the igniter glow at all? If it is glowing, but the burner does not light, is it usually a symptom of an igniter that has become weak. If it does not draw enough current the gas valve will not open and the burner will not light. This is a safety feature to prevent free flowing gas without ignition. If the broil burner is functioning properly, then more than likely the gas valve and regulator are working fine. In most ranges both burners are fed from the same source. You could try swapping igniters between the broil and bake burners to prove the theory. Or, you could just replace the igniter all together. Current readings are as follows: Round shaped glow igniter: 2.7 to 3.2 amps Square shaped glow igniter: 3.2 to 3.7 amps If you can give me the exact model number off your range (usually located around the oven door or on the back of the range) I can give you the correct part number you will need. Most appliance repair stores carry the igniter. I hope this helps you.

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.

My oven preheated fine and when I put the stuff in the oven the broiler element was still on and wouldn't go off. Do you know what would cause this?

It sounds like the broil relay contacts welded themselves shut (closed). You will need to replace the Electronic Oven Control (EOC).

Oven dosen't heat up.

Usually the problem is the heating element. This is easy to check and usually inexpensive. There is a video at that will walk you thru testing and replacing. It may be a different model but the testing and replacement will be the same. You can also enter your model # for diagrams and illustrations of your specific model. All parts come with installation instructions. Not all models are available.
