I suspect a heating element in the oven has burned out. Some ovens have 2 heating elements, one on the bottom for baking and one on the top for broiling. If this is the case, you can try setting the oven on broil and see if the top element gets hot. Usually the bottom element fails first because food gets dripped on it. In most cases you can unplug the old heating element by just pulling on it and plug the new one just as easily. You can check the resistance of the heating element with an ohm meter. If it's burned out the resistance will be very high, probably greater than a mega ohm. In some cases you will need to take the back off the oven to replace the heating element. Just make sure the oven is unplugged and cool when you start working on it.

Oven has stopped heating, and automatic interior light has also stopped working. Fan still works though - any ideas?


Stove possibly has a fuse panel which is usually in the inside area of the switches and there is usually one for each burner as well as the oven. Make sure you replace with the right size fuse or you could have trouble.

The oven will not light on my Whirlpool gas oven Mod SF368LEPQ 2. The stove top burners still light.


Sounds like you need an bake element ignitor if the bake doesn't work but if the broil also doesn't work, it could be the electronic clock/timer control. the part number for the bake ignitor is 8054129 .Best off to call a reliable service company such as Sears.

The fan and oven light in bottom oven works but not heat.


The heating element is the likely culprit as they burn out and go open
circuit..(ie ...disconnected and will not heat up )
If you can use a multi-meter , then the element can be tested using the resistance range (with the oven SWITCHED OFF )

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.

Hi,
If your electric2_bing.gif oven is not heating then you probably have a bad heating element in your oven. This is not that hard to fix yourself...

Neither oven will come on


Hello kybattey
Welcome to Fixya.

You said, After coming on and preheating Saturday, the upper oven went off and the lower wouldn't work either. Control paned was blank, but interior lights were on and pushing control paned buttons resulted in beeps. Turned off breaker for 5 minutes to reset and upon retry, the fan came on for maybe 5 seconds and then went off. Nothing else changed. Any suggestions?

You say the ovens went on and then later cut off.
Does the clean mode work?
Try the clean mode and see if it goes on.
Assuming it will clean!

Since the Range will clean you have confirmation that the proper power is reaching the range. It also verifies that the elements are in working condition. You will need to check the high temperature limit switch and the door latch mechanism. If either of these is defective, the bake and broil function will not operate properly
Let me know how it goes.
Waiting your response.
Huuum

Sf195lehz5 free standing gas oven,


Check both gas valve solonoids for 216 ohms [blue broiler wire to the orange common and red oven wire to orange common] both must be ok.

Check oven temp sensor for 1080 ohms.

If above are ok then the problem is either the spark module or the control board.

Since the gas valve was not opening and there was not ignitor sound I replaced the spark module for about $90. You have a 50-50 chance of being right.

My range is relitively new and I'm haveing an oven light problem which I traced to the control board so I may replaced this board to for about $200.
