SOURCE: I have a an AMANA gas stove burners work but oven doesn't

First check the book to see if you have a igniter on this stove if so it takes a moment or two to get started, if not you need to light pilot
make sure gas is getting to burner when called for by the thermostat or oven control..

SOURCE: gas smell by back of stove and burner amana model

Firstly, The guy who tested with a lighter needs reporting to the professional body that qualfies gas engineers (In the UK he would have to be "CORGI registered" I presume you have similar in the US). Had he found a substantial leak with his lighter he could have exposed you to a lethal explosion.

Here is a vers safe ameture way to see if you have a leak:

First: Vevtilate the room so there is no smell of gas, open all the windows and doors and let the air blow through. If there is any hint of a gas smell, just call out a gas emergency service.

It's unlikely taht your leak is that bad and if you are happy that lighting the stove is not going to cause an explosion, do the following:

  • Turn the gas off at the main
  • Immediately, go to the stove and light the smallest burner
  • Time the interval between lighting and the flame dying out for lack of gas
  • Turn the burner control to off
  • Turn the main back on
  • Light ALL the burners (It may take a moment) to ensure any air is evacuated from the system
  • Turn OFF all the burners
  • Return to the main and turn that off
  • Wait 30 minutes to an hour
  • Without turning the main back on, turn on the small burner and time the interval it ramains lit again.
  • Turn the control to OFF

The time it took the burner to go out immediately after turning off the gas and the time it took after your 30-60 minute wait SHOULD be the same.

If it took less time to go out after the wait period, it's because some gas leaked out somewhere.
If the time was the same you have no leak.

If this demonstrates you DO have a leak, my advice would be to call out the idiot who tested the stove the first time and go through the test with him. Then, demand a refund on pain of you reporting him for a health and safety violation if you don't get your money back. Now throw him out of the house.

Call out someone who is more competent (Shouldn't be difficult, a trained chimp would probably out perform this guy!)

You can test the new guy's work the same way before he leaves too!

There is NO WAY that a leak like this should force you into a replacement stove unless someone can demonstrate what the failing component is and that costs more to replace than a new stove.

Hope all the above helps. Please drop a comment on this thread to let me know how you got on, or if you need any further advice

Hello & Welcome to FixYa

F3 error code indicates a open/shorted oven temperature sensor and to solve this problem the sensor needs replacement. If you wan to be sure before replacing the sensor then you can test it with a voltmeter for around 1100ohms....if it reads more then this then it needs replacement however, if the reading is around or less then 1100ohms then it is the control board that needs replacement. Please get back to me if you have any other questions.

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!

Amana oven does not work.


the most likly problem is the bake ignitor is bad. this is a common part to fail in gas ovens. the bake ignitor part number for your model is 31940001, and price ranges from $45-$75. a bad clock can also cause this issue, but I would start with the ignitor. let me know if you have further questions. shane

Bad electronic contral panel on Amana gas range


On the Amana: Several Ebay stores carry panels like this. Problem is, once you open electronics they usually are hard to send back.

The stove is ten years old. You'll likely spend more than it is worth finding the right part and repairing it. It might be a good time to consider buying a new stove and selling this one for parts or scrap.

Old Amana - no manual; can't operate self clean feature


Can you locate the model number on the oven? Also any particular name of the stove? The manufactured year. These should all be available on a stainless steel or aluminum attached plate , probably on the back of the stove or inside the door.
I wouldn't try using the self cleaning feature until we get some advice. it could lock up on you and not UNLOCK. Normally self cleaning takes place at 600 or more degrees .

I'm sure others still have the same stove., I will see what I can find for you.
