    Sorry it took so long to reply, we had other problems that were more urgent. The thermostat was bad replaced it the only problem was that the whole top had to be taken apart to get to the thermostat and capillary tube. Thanks for the help. John S.

Control knob may be faulty. Otherwise if you can see a relay, you may want to test that with ohm meter to see what position it is in.

    Also check the thermostat and it's connections. Sometimes these can become clogged, or corrorded and faulty. It is under the top cover to remove. You can test power to and from the connections with a VOM.
    Same with power to and from control panel and from thermometer, thermostat, control knob to main control panel/board as well.

Hello, Your igniter for the oven is shorting against the chassis of the range, pull the drawer out and check one of the wire nuts is not lose or fallen off. Make sure the wire is not shorting down to the chassis. Mike

The oven lights randomly even though the control knob is set to"off." The stovetop burners work and the oven lights on demand. I have the range gas and electricity shut off until repairs are made.


Hello. I don't know how old this model is but I couldn't bring up parts for it--it sounds like from what you've described, the oven control is shorted--probably from grease or other contaminants getting inside. The clue is that the "oven lights randomly even though the control is set to *off*.

Oven not working. Top, broiler, and warmer are working.


Have you checked for proper gas flow into the over or broiler? This is a gas valve back there that will sometimes go bad. Also there is a sensor near your knobs, it is a timer that will go bad, the valve is about 85 dollars and the timer is about 65 dollars

Display goes blank, no heat, no oven


This I hope will be an easy solution for you. I think you have a circuit breaker tripped or a fuse if you have a fuse panel.. I am guessing you have an old fuse panel. When you have a fuse blown on a 230 volt appliance and you turn a swith on (like your knob) it feeds back to other circuits on the 120 circuits and will make it do crazzzy things, like making lights and clocks work..Regardless if you have fuse or breaker you dont have the 240 volt to run the range..You only have one120 volt leg powering your stove.

Sounds like one of the control knobs got stuck or shorted in the start cycle. Can you get access to the inside where you can see each of the control knobs? Look for wiring and unplug one at a time. This may help you figure which one is shorted.

Burner will not turn off


I will need the complete model #. There should be a sticker near the bottom front behind the drawer. Can't use the # that is on the owners manual.
