Question about Whirlpool SF367 Gas Kitchen Range
I guy bought a whirpool range "Imperial Series" Model # sf462lxsq 0 and serial# Rt3410863. The oven will not light. was under warranty and was fixed, then 3 mo. later same problem. No warranty now and he asked me to look at it. What are the common problems in this area. I think he said he smells gas. and Igniter fires a few times. In the Parts list I'm looking at #15 or 16 may be a problem.

SOURCE: Whirlpool oven won't ignite
The good news for you is that your gas provider, the folks who bill you for the gas offer a free service whereby they will send out a technician to adjust your stove for no cost.

I was baking and the stove suddenly changed to Maxi Broil and then to ERR F2EO Stuck Key. I cannot seem to change it by start or off or even turning the unit off and then back on. Any suggestions? Thanks.

First, the flame should be blue and without much visible yellow. You need to give the gas tube a good cleaning to get out any soot buildup and any partial obstuctions that might be causing the problem. Since you started with a yellow flame and soot, you need to get the burner tubes clean to see if you have resolved the problem after adjusting the regulator and burner valve(s).
You might need to install a different regulator to match the pressure of your gas supply source, as regulators have a specific working range of inlet (supply gas pressure) that they can operate properly at to "regulate" the supply pressure to the stove's needed pressure.
Check your manual and the installation guide to verify what the gas inlet pressure requirements are and check with your gas supplier to see what they are providing you.
To your 2nd question, yes, the gas will cycle on and off when you are using the oven, since the thermostat will call for more heat when needed and shut off the gas/flame once the temperature you set the control at, has been reached. The cycling is a result of the oven trying to maintain the desired temperature for baking.
One reason that you can smell gas when the oven is being used, is because all gas ovens have a surface vent to allow excess heat to escape from the oven compartment, however you should not be smelling raw gas (actually you're smelling the "rotten egg" additive that's put in the gas) all the time, since when the oven is turned on, a small electric ignitor is heated up VERY HOT glowing bright orange inside the oven compartment. Once it's hot enough a sensor opens the gas valve and lets gas into the burner tube to be ignited instantly by the VERY HOT ignitor. It is rare to smell raw gas with this system, but sometimes you'll get a stronger "rotten egg" smell at different times due to the gas company and their system, etc.
As to the gas smell, you should NOT be smelling gas every time the oven cycles on when baking, as a normal ongoing occurrence. During the first few uses, it is normal to smell some gas, but this should go away after a couple of uses. If it doesn't, you should look to make sure the regulator and oven controls are PROPERLY configured and set - Since you've already fiddled with these, it's probably a good idea to have someone from your gas company (or a gas appliance tech) come out and do this. Improper settings can cause some serious problems.
Hope this helps!
