Cannot turn on Oven

I have a Westinghouse Multifunction Freestyle 476 Gas fired oven. I have mabnaged to turn the oven on a few times but cant figure out why it dosent always work. I turn the oven setting to "Bake" and turn the temp knowb to 200, the lights come on automatically after afew seconds to indicate that it has powered up and the gas pilot comes on but the oven's main gas dosnet come on. I have triesd different combinations of the cooking button (the veseel icon with heat waves) and the timer button; setting times for both, 1 of them seperately and all the combiantiosn thereof but to no avail.. I have also tried looking for manuals but havent been successful. Please help!!!

    I seem to have the same problem with my oven, it looks like its working and begins to heat but after 30 minutes I can still touch the shelves (they are slightly warm). My oven is not that old and the grill works perfectly, do you recommend a call out?

Your oven needs a new ignitor it has to draw 3 amps or more to open the gas valve (just because it glows doesnt mean its good) let me know how you make out

I have a westinghouse 476 gas oven, the oven does not turn on all the time the ignitor heats up but no gas comes out. when i take the cover off the ignitor and tap on base of oven it ignites and works...


It sound like you have a valve problem some types of ignitors have a heat release valve, by hitting it you cause this to release, I would suddjest replacing the ignitor unit but this requires a Gas Fitter that is approved, as all sorts of tests, requires specialised equipment, if you have gas central heating, the service engineer could perform the same for your cooker. remember to ISOLATE MAINS POWER if this model uses it for ignition.
Hope this has been helpful

I have a Westinghouse 668 Freestyle Multifunction oven. We lost electricity and when we got it again the digital timer is blinking from 0.00 to AUTO. How do I reset? It won't work otherwise.


Another Fixya member, skillful79, says you should hold down the two buttons on the left side at the same time, then set the time using the + and - buttons.

Westinghouse oven GWH 476 SLP Multifunction. The pilot cones on but not igniting ? no gas getting through


Hi RMSINN,

Believe it or not, the clock has to be set before the oven will light.

To set the clock, instead of using function names for buttons, we'll just call them buttons 1 through 6 going from left to right.

Push buttons 1 and 2 at the same time. You're now in clock setting mode. Push buttons 5 and 6 to make the clock go minus and plus.
Cheers

Westinghouse Freestyle 476 Cooktop Oven


After getting an electrician out, apparently the time needs to be set on the oven. As we're in a rental & don't have a manual/ couldn't download one, we got it to work after holding the first two buttons in (the timer buton + the one that looks like a hot pot) along with the + button at the far right, which made the tim tick on, so it could be set.

The oven works now! : )
