Question about Ovens
My whirlpool gas oven doesn't light! I am able to use the range top but it seems like there is no gas coming out of the oven. No fumes and I tried to light it with a lighter thinking it may be a starter problem but no gas. I was using it fine until June 09...and we haven't used it during the warmer months. I am panicking because its baking season soon and the worst part is.....I LIVE IN JAPAN. I work for the US Military in Japan and that is why I have an American oven, I called the Japanese Propane company to see if it was a faulty gas line or pipe, but they reassured me that the oven needs to be fixed. I don't know who to call to get it fixed...but if I can get an idea of which parts to order from Whirlpool I might be able to get someone on the base to fix it...any ideas?
You probably have a bad bake ignitor, The ignitor is a common part to go bad over time. If it isn't working, or isn't getting hot enough, the valve will not open to let gas in. That is why you can't light it with a match. The bake ignitor isn't very expensive, and is not to difficult to replace. Be sure to get the "bake ignitor", and not the "broil ignitor". If you need help getting the part # for it, or help with replacment procedures, let me know, be happy to help. shane Also, if this helps you fix your problem, please rate this solution. thanks, shane
