Question about Whirlpool Ovens

Open Question

Whirlpool model GS563LXSQ 0 oven will not light. I replaced the ignitor and it still won't light. The broiler will not ignite either, although it clicks a few times. The stovetop works fine.

I had a technician out who's ballpark quote was $500.00 to replace the board. When I mentioned I'd buy a new oven before I'd do that, he said new one's aren't as good. Does anybody have any advice?

SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: stove top ignitors do not ignite but oven does.

Electric gas igniters sometimes get stuck in one position causing a clicking sound. The clicking sound that you hear is the electric arc that is pulsing from the igniter conductor (wire) to ground (the gas burner). It receives power from the electrical outlet that the stove is plugged into.
Residue from food and sometimes cleaning products may be preventing the igniter from producing a spark (Arc) to the base of the burner. This is a common problem that occurs when the stove has been cleaned or food is allowed to build up. Make sure that the igniter and the burner base are clean and dry. This will help with proper operation. Oven cleaner and a small tooth brush may be used to accomplish this. Another problem with ignition may occur if you have too little (touching) or too much space between the igniter and the base of the burner; it will prevent the burner from igniting. You should only have a little more space than the thickness of a nickel between the burner base and the igniter. A good “blue” arc from the igniter to the burner base is optimal. If this doesn’t work, you may need to replace the electric igniter module. Good luck.

SOURCE: oven glowplug lights but gas will not turn on

Even though the ignitor (glowplug) is heating up, it more than likely still needs to be replaced. They do become weak over time. An oven gas valve requires a certain amount of current moving through the coil in order to open the plunger. The he circuit goes through the ignitor, and the hotter thee ignitor gets, the more current flows through it. As the ignitor weakens, it does not allow sufficient current through the circuit to open the valve. Replace the ignitor and you'll be baking in time for Thanksgiving. Use caution when installing the ignitor, as they are extremely fragile. Also, do not touch the actual element section of the ignitor when installing it.******Remember to remove power from the range before making this repair.
Good luck, and gobble, gobble.

Broiler light, oven wont


You are probably right though often the ignitor will glow, but just not hot enough for the valve to open. I would definitely try replacing the ignitor first, it is much cheaper than the gas valve and those valves rarely go bad. It is possible that the thermostat is not sending 120V to the valve, and thus the ignitor but less likely.
