    Broil doesn't work either.

  • Lois1 Jan 20, 2008

    No.  I haven't been able to see it glow red, but I can smell gas when I try to turn oven on so I know the gas flow is good.

  • Tiny131 May 04, 2008

    Nothing is igniting, top or oven. Gas supply go. Clock works.

    I also am having this identical problem, at first it would just take a while for it to ignite, we were able to use a match and light it. However, know even that does not work.

    oven takes a long time to ignite. ignitor on bottom does glow red, but it takes close to 10 min. for the flame to kick on.

    My stove doesn't ignite on it's own and now when I try to turn the oven on it doesn't ignite and we just smell gas. The bottom igniter is working though.

I have the same problem intermittently on my Super Cap 465. After reading the following quote from another site, "There have been cases where radio waves, electronic signals and sometimes something as strange as dimmers in lights have caused some weird problems with some computer panels in stoves like these", I tries turning off lights that might be on the same circuit and wouldn't you know it, the oven igniter circuit worked.

    when you try broil do you see the igniter glow red at the top burner tube

  • robert samples Jan 20, 2008

    if the oven igniter isn't working you should not smell gas at all

WHIRLPOOL Sup Cap 465 oven turns on for 3 sec, then shuts off


The flame sensor is dirty or bad.

When the unit does not sense flame after ignition, the gas valve shuts down the system.

They can become corroded or dirty, but usually just need to be replaced.

Contact whirlpool for warranty info. If the unit is under warranty, they should send you the parts for free. If not, they can direct you in how to order the part.

Whirlpool Accubake Super Capacity 465 gas range. Oven won't light


I just had my ignitor replaced. The ignitor glowed but it must pull a certain amount of amps before it will allow the gas valve to open. Once the ignitor starts glowing the gas should come on within 30 seconds. Now that I saw it done I realize it was something I could have done myself. Be sure the tech does not try to slip you a used ignitor as mine tried.

Whirlpool Accubake Super Capacity 465 gas range. Oven won't light


Some gas ranges may take 10 or so minutes to light.
Other than that you may have a defective glow bar ignitor.
If it glows and does not light the reistance in the ignitior has failed.
