Re: Gas oven won't light
Http://www.geeksquad.fixya.com/ThreadView.aspx?prdid=53999&thid=358497 Gas oven won't light (by 2 users) Posted by MBeird on Jan 18, 2008 Can hear the clicking of the auto starter when starting the oven, but it stops after 5 seconds and then the oven simply fills with gas. Broiler still works fine as do the stove top burners.Any thoughts? Good question? You may have a plugged up burner and or the pipes or jets may not be adjusted correctly and it could be your igniteron the gas range because it is not igniting the spark to create the flame. You may want to have it check out with an authorized service repair tech to make sure it is safe and will function well. So if you need further assistance, please feel free to contact your local appliance dealer in your area or in the yellow pages, or contact the factory phone number or website to further assist you with your questions.

Disclaimer- be careful when working with gas.
Starters in gas grills are just about novelty anymore. Often, they only light 1/3rd or 1/4th of the burners and they usually stop working within one grilling season. I recommend using a wand lighter. Try to light just one burner but if doesn't light in 5 to 7 seconds, turn the gas off and wait to try again.
Incidentally, you are turning the gas on at the tank, right? You should hear it when you turn the burner on.
this is an indication of weak wires from the connection of power supply over the range.
what you need to do to fix up this problem i to open up the range with the bass tools then trace down the wire to the power panel that distribute power to other part to function smell the wires to detect the born/weak wire from others then you make a replacement of the wire , but if you did not have the technical skill or the knowledge to apply the explanation above then it is advice not to do it your self to avoid more damage on the range.
please before you can carry out this above information you will have to put off all form of power supply connected to the range.
Try cleaning the starter with rubbing alcohol and toothbrush. There might be soap or boiled over residue on the starter. If that doesn't work, try using fine 150 grit sandpaper and gentle clean the starter with it. This problems drove me nuts too. Good luck!
Sures sounds like the ignitor is causing all the problem. Simply becasue the ignitor is lighting does not mean it is good. Your unit incorporates a flat style ignitor and it must draw 3.2 - 3.6 amps in order to fully open the oven safety valve. There are only two ways to verify this. The first and more professional way is to measure the amperage draw of the ignitor after it has been glowing for approximately 45 seconds. I feel certain you will fnd the draw 3.2 amps or lower. The second would be to make an intelligent guess and order part number 74007498 which is an ignitor for your oven. If we can help further feel free to respond.
i have a whirlpool gas accubake range and only two burners will ignite. The other two burners make a clicking sound and release gas but never light. I have to use a match to light the other two burners and the flame is uneven on one. What should i do?
