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???!

If the heating element cycles off and on, it's probably not the problem but a thermostat or high limit. The thermostat should have a sensor wire, a part for sensing temperature and should not be placed or located anywhere near the heating element.

Oven not heating to desired temperature

You will have to place a amp meter over one ignitor wire and turn the oven on to bake.
If the amp draw is 3.3 amps or less,replace the ignitor.

Hi. This sounds like a weak igniter, the symptoms usually are: burner won't light, or takes longer than normal to ignite the burner, may or may not smell gas in the oven, does not maintain set temperature or burner does not come on fully. On gas ovens, a glo igniter is like a light bulb, the more you cook, the faster it wears out. Bottom line, needs to be replaced. Good luck.

Heat pump works in emergency heat, but not in auxiliary heat

I set the thermostat for 70 degrees. It comes on always in auxillary heat and does not shut off when it reaches 70 degrees. It is a heat pump, I am assuming, it might be the thermostat? But when the air conditioner is on, it turns off when it reaches it's temperature.

Amana arg7800ww oven will not come up to temperature.

Your gas valve has a thermocouple circuit that will not let gas flow until the ignitor is hot enough. A failed ignitor can still glow but not be hot enough to open the gas valve. Replace your ignitor.
