Question about Dynasty DGRSC 30 Gas Kitchen Range

4 Answers

On 9 yr old DGRDC-30-4, igniter keeps burning hole in side of oven bake burner (3 burners in 9 yrs!). Burn hole causes large flame to hit ignitor, which needs replacement evey 6 months. At purchase, ignitor was positioned further from burner, causing explosions at ignition - replaced by manufacturer, with ignitor closer to burner, leading to current problems. Burner now out of warranty, and replacements expensive. If no fix, any chance of getting the manaufacturer to help with this design flaw?

    I have no problem getting the flame to the other side - why are you suggesting that I adjust the air vent? Also, I never said there was a problem with a weak ignitor - if anything, the ignitor is too strong and is burning through the burner, The ignitors are changed every 6 months,

    The first half of your answer seems to address non-ignition problems, which is not what I am having. Please answer my problem - what to do about burning through the side of the burner. Thank you

  • millerdavido Jun 25, 2009

    As mentioned, at purchase the ignitor was further from the side of the burner, but that caused explosions from delayed igntion, The manufacturer replaced the burner, moving the ignitor closer to the burner, which now burns through the burner wall. If I place some sort of steel guard between the ignitor and the burner, surely I will once again start having delayed ignition explosions? Does the guard have holes in it to allow the gas to reach the ignitor? Is such a part available to be purchased? Please advise

Now I have a good news for you. Middleby took over Jade / Dynasty from Maytag few years ago. They will send you a new design stainless steel oven burner for free with the proof of purchase ( one time deal ) they are really nice people,please give them a call for detail. They told me It will last 5x longer than steel burners. Don't try to move the ignitor away from burner tube, it will cause delay ignition ( small explosion ). After the stainless burner installed and I have no call back. Have fun. Dynasty / Jade ph # 800-884-5233

There should have been a steel gard between the side wall and the piliot, and the burner assembly,, if it is in a stationary position loosen the screw and try to mve it away from the side,, you may have to make your own gaurd and install it and make sure you eave an air gap between the wall and the flame so the air can help keep the wall cool

Hi,

Correct this is a design flaw. Its the adjustment that helps improving the situation.

For example:
the air adjustment is open just a little to much the flame will have a hard time to go to the other side, try closing the vent to the burner just a Little bit and try the oven,another problem that i see is that the ignitor is getting to weak to ignite the flame on time.
But about reporting this to the manufacturer , I was unable to find any blogs or email address through which you could inform them. You can try calling their customer service and might want to upgrade the model in exchange of this.

Thanks for contacting Fixya.

I have a Dynasty DGRSC range. It has 2 burners and a broiler. All 3 ignitors glow but the ignition is delayed. The burners are still ok.


if you are asking about the bake and broil igniters if they glow it doesn't mean that they're good,they work with amps,when the igniter pulls from 3 to 3.6 amps it opens the gas valve and then the flame ignites,easiest way to check them if they do ignite the flame is set it to bake,when the igniter starts to glow time it,if it takes longer than 40 seconds for the flame to lite the igniter is bad,also if you have two igniters for bake check the burner tubes,alot of times you'll see one igniter lites on time and the other is lazy,it keeps glowing and the heat burns a hole through the burner tube then you have to replace both the igniter and tube,you'll see the hole behind the igniter if it happens.it says your igniters are no longer available but you can use frigidaire or whirlpool but the frigidaire is cheap part 5303935066 i use this igniter in most ovens that have a flat igniter and it will work in your oven,the igniters come with ceramic wire nuts,just cut the wires from the old igniter and wire nut the new igniter to the wires,it's that easy,try to make the wires long enough so you can tuck them out of the oven,one more thing,the screws that hold the igniters onto the tube can be hard to turn,i wet a paper towel and wipe the threads on the screws,this makes a big difference the screws back out very easy when wet,you don't want to spray them with any chemicals because the heat will burn the stuff off and stink and could get into your food.good luck and hope this helps you out.

We have a Whirlpool Gas Range, model SF357PEKQ. When I start the bake feature, you can hear the gas flow, the ignitor click (about 4 times) yet there is no ignition of the gas (flame doesn't start)....


Whirlpool had some grounding issues with some of their electronic ignition ranges. Make sure your outlet is grounded first. Then you might need to make sure the bake burner itself is grounded very good against the range frame. I have put star washers between the burner and frame and tightened very tight, that sometimes helps. Also make sure the holes in the burner under the spark electrode are clear from debris. Sometimes the burning of gas leaves a residue that can stop up the holes and not let the gas flow out where the spark is hitting the burner. Hope that helps.

Viking gas oven model # VGIC3656BSS, serial #022404-2919 takes FOREVER to preheat up. Sometimes in excess of 40 minutes. Been a problem for a while. Looks like flames at bottom do not increase when oven...


When increasing the temp. on a gas range the oven's burners do not increase flame size as the cooktop burners do. It just keeps the burner lighted for a longer amount of time.

First if you can see the burners do they light within about a min. or less. If no you probably have bad igniters which are not lighting the burners as quickly as they should or they are "opening up" (stops working) when they get too hot. In this case replacement of the igniters should solve the problem.

Second if it lights quickly but still takes a while to heat; you want to look at the burners to ensure that the flames are down both sides of the burner tube and not dancing around too much. If only part of the two sides of the burner tubes are lighted then a pluged orifice or burner tube is the most likely cause. Once cleaned it should work fine.

As with anything mechanical there are numurous possiblities for something not working correctly and above are the two most popular reasons that come to my mind.

My oven will not ignite, what's the problem?


Hello there:
Bake igniter Usually when an oven won't bake, it's because the bake igniter is weak or burned out. The igniter is a small, round or rectangular device, that's about 1 inch by 4 to 8 inches. It's near the burner itself. The burner is the tube-type device the gas flows through before it's ignited. It has many small holes on the sides to let the gas, when ignited, form a long, low flame. If the igniter is weak, if it glows red but doesn't get hot enough, or if it's burned out, the gas doesn't flow to the burner and the burner won't ignite. If this is the problem, you may need to replace either the igniter or the gas safety valve. Usually the igniter is to blame. Other causes Other reasons that your oven may not bake are: The clock settings are incorrect (if you have timed baking or a self-cleaning oven). The thermostat is defective. The safety valve that prevents accidental gas flow is defective. The selector switch is defective.
