Question about Amana RanARG7302 Gas Kitchen Range

2 Answers

Oven works when it feels like it.

Our Amana stove has been acting up for a few months. At first it was always 40-60 degrees off in temperature, but then it started only heating to 150 or 200 degrees and getting no hotter no matter how long you waited. The next day it worked fine, so today(about three days later) I tried to heat it up and it got to 200 degrees, then started dropping. Also I smelled gas strongly. I turned it off and let it cool down, then I tried again. This time it heated perfectly, to the exact temperature on the dial. I finished with it, turned it off, it got cold. Then I needed it again, so I turned it on again, same day, and it got to about 150 and I smelled gas, so I right away turned it off and back on, and it heated fine again. What in the world is wrong with this oven???!

Re: oven works when it feels like it.

The ignitor is weak and not lighting the oven consistently. Need to replace the ignitor.

My oven is at least 15 degrees cooler than it should be. Since I have a digital stove, does that mean it cannot be repaired?

Try this

Turn oven temperature knob to OFF.

2. Press and hold both arrow pads for approximately 5 seconds.

3. A double digit will display ranging from -35 °F to 35 °F.

4. Immediately, press either:

• to increase oven temperature by 5 °F

• to decrease oven temperature by 5 °F

• When temperature is adjusted to a cooler setting, a minus sign (-) will

display with the offset temperature.

5. When desired temperature change is displayed, release control and

change will be automatically saved after a few seconds. Control will

return to time of day display.
• Offset temperature change will be retained through a power failure.

Amana, ACS3350, gas slid - in range, the oven will not turn

I just had the same problem. I had it repaired and it was the oven ignitor. Labor and Parts $185. I now have an additional problem and I have to call the repair person back. The oven starts up and preheats to temp I set of 350 degrees. Then after awhile it will shut off and after another few minutes the clock will come back on and blink. I will repress oven bake and it will go for a short time and then shut off. I don't know what the problem is yet. I am totaly dis gusted with this stove. The stove is only 8 years old!

Oven temp will not go above 300 degrees

You need to check the thermostat in the oven. Go to your manufacturer's web site and download the technical manual for your stove. There should be a troubleshooting section in the manual. If not, and you are somewhat handy...

1. Disconnect the power from the stove.
2. Locate the thermostat and jumper it out.
3. Reconnect power to the stove and turn on the oven.
4. Wait a few minutes and see if the temperature goes above 300 degrees. If it does, replace the thermostat. If it does not, order a service call.

Don't forget to shut off the power again and remove the jumper.

Amana Range, AER5515QAW

could be a bad bake element, bad temperature sensor, or control board problem

what does the oven readout display for temperature? if the readout agrees with the actual oven temperature ... it is probably the element

if the oven readout displays a much higher temperature it may be the temperature sensor (the probe in the oven cavity) or the control board

the temperature sensor can be tested by measuring its resistance with power off and unplugged from the control board, should be about 1100 ohms at 75F

If the sensor is good, then it is probably the control board ... in which case we can repair it for you at
