Question about Whirlpool GS445LELS Gas Kitchen Range

1 Answer

Whirlpool gas range spark ignition problem.

This is one of the newer models, bought in 2008. The gas works fine, as the gas shoots out of its respective stove. It's just that only the front-left sparkler ignites, no matter which stove I try to turn on (by twisting the knob).

Check the burn head, there is a tube from the ignitor to the burner head. that is where the gas get ignition. now look at the burner head, there should have 2 small pin hole align with the tube. use a paper clip clean out the hole.

Whirlpool oven wont light


The igniter has to heat the thermocouple to turn on the gas valve so if the igniter is glowing brightly either (or both) of those components could be at fault.

On my whirlpool gas range only 1 burner out of 5 will ignite. oven light works, oven ignites. only 3 months old and worked fine until now.


Most often when cleaning, soapis left behind and obstructs the flow of ignition gas normally directed at the exact point of the spark. Check this area and use a small wire brush to clean these area of the burners that do nto work. Let us know if this helps. Eric Campion

The gas is connected on the rear side of the stove but the pilot light is not lit, nor will it light. trying to trouble shoot the problem before deciding to purchase a new oven/range. Also, I remember...


You may have a pilotless ignition.Check around door frames for model #plate.
Also , open broiler door ,turn on oven and look inside . If you see an orange glow appear after awhile, that is the electronic igniter and you have an electronic ignition(no pilot).In this case the top burners use a spark ignition system.If you don,t hear clicking when you turn on a burner your ignition module might be bad.
Easily fixed though.

Gas range won't ignite. We had PGE and come over


This sounds like a failed burner igniter, also called a spark module. These are pretty easy to replace since the module itself is located at the back of the stove under an access panel. The price is around 40 to 60 dollars. Lately it seems that these newer stoves have weaker spark modules. I see dead modules on models less than 2 years old, where it used to be more like 5 or more years on the older ones.

I have proble with whirlpool gas range SF265lxtq When I tried to use the oven, I setup the oven by the keypad, but the oven does not get hot, and i did not smell gas. What should I do ?


Your Direct Spark Ignition System contains a
Gas Distribution Valve and a Direct Spark Ignition
(DSI) Control that interfaces with the
Electronic Oven Control, and spark electrodes.
This provides the direct spark ignition and gas
distribution for Whirlpool self-cleaning gas freestanding
ranges. You must familiarize yourself with this system
before attempting any repair. Look through this service

Whirlpool Gas Range Oven will not start (gas flows, but no spark)


The ignitor does 2 things. It creates the spark for ignition and it signals the control the burner is lit(flame sensor). If the ignitor and wire are new the spark module is bad. If all spark components have been replaced then I would be searching for a poor ground wire. Are you by any chance using a GFCI circuit? Not recommended and if it worked on this type of circuit you were just plain lucky.

SF367LEMQ0 I have the above Whirlpool gas range. When I turn the gas handle on, the igniter will not ignite the gas coming out of the hole. However, when I use a match, I have to turn the handle to low...


You are missing some parts.
Namely the round disk that covers the top of the gas outlet at each burner.
Also, make sure you both use the same type gas...ie; LP or Natural gas.

Posted by MBeird on Jan 18, 2008
Can hear the clicking of the auto starter when starting the oven, but it stops after 5 seconds and then the oven simply fills with gas. Broiler still works fine as do the stove top burners. Any thoughts?

Good question? You may have a plugged up burner and or the pipes or jets may not be adjusted correctly and it could be your igniter on the gas range because it is not igniting the spark to create the flame. You may want to have it check out with an authorized service repair tech to make sure it is safe and will function well. So if you need further assistance, please feel free to contact your local appliance dealer in your area or in the yellow pages, or contact the factory phone number or website to further assist you with your questions.
