Question about KitchenAid Kitchen Ranges
For about 1 year, the oven has been slow to turn on . It would stay on low for an extended period (5 to 15 min) until a "poof or pop" sound and it turns on. Now, the oven won't turn on at all. The digital panel seems to work letting me choose the function I need, but the oven just won't turn on. Can you help?
From what I've read, the igniter is most often the problem and was with my KitchenAid Supra oven, Here are some details to help you do the actual repair by knowing where everything is located.
1. The oven has 2 igniters: one for the broiler (located at top inside of oven) and one the "overall" oven igniter (located underneath the heat shield on bottom of oven; remove 4 screws to get to it).
2. Do visual test to see if your broiler igniter works versus your oven igniter. It will glow orange if working. This is a good way to focus on the source of the problem (i.e., if no glow, then it may very well be the igniter).
3. Order new igniter. The site repairclinic.com shipped mine very fast.
4. To install: pull oven away from wall, unplug, and remove inside panel on back (not entire back panel but, rather, panel that is in the middle of the back). Here, you can access one of the two igniter wires. You can access the other wire by removing the storage shelf on the bottom of the oven. Snap the old ones off. Unscrew the igniter from inside the oven, Snake new wires through back.Screw new igniter in place. Put everything back in place and you are done!

This process of replacement worked. It was certainly easier than replacing one of the stovetop ignitors. The one trick is snaking the wires through the back. The wires do not go straight back, they have to also go up a couple inches. We took the old one, put the wires thru the back til they came out the front hole, then twisted the wires of the new with the wires of the old, then pulled it through the back. This was very effective. And yes, I have my oven back! Whew!
