When using my oven, it makes a gasping for air type of noise about every 30 seconds to a minute. It sounds like it is struggling to get air, so I will open the door to the house to let air in. However, this does not work, and it continues toa make that gasping type noise. Can you help? I will greatly appreciate any advice. Thanks, Scott

the ignitor should glow bright orange.it sounds like you have a weak ignitor but if the flame lites within 20 to 30 seconds it sounds like it's ok,it could be braking down though when it gets hot,it doesn't matter if it glows,it has to be putting out 3.2 amps,if you have an amp meter with a clamp on it you can read out the amps,if the broiler works ok i would change out the ignitor,then follow the tube down to the bottom and stick a paper clip in the orifice hole where the gas comes out and make sure that's clear,also there's a shutter on the tube to adjust the air flow,see if it's closed,it's usually almost wide open,check the tube to make sure the ignitor didn't burn a hole through it.i've found tubes with holes in them from a lazy ignitor,most of the time if there's a problem it will be the ignitor
When the compressor comes up to pressure and kicks off, you should normally hear a gasp of air escaping. That gasp is the release of pressure from the compressor itself - not the tank, and it is supposed to get released so that the compressor can restart without being preloaded with compressed air. My guess is that the gasp is not happening. It is probably some debris or a gummy mechanism. The mechanism is supposed to be triggered by the same mechanism that shuts off the motor.
Please disconnect the set, open the cover of the oven , then the front panel assembly. Inspect carefully for any signs of insect/ coakroaches within the set, if so use a good blower to clean the inside, use a hot air dryer to warm for any insect dirt. once you have finished checking for any loose connections and the clean status, close the cover back and check on the set. If it does not work well try settting the clock and test. Hope this helps. Good day.

Sounds like a constricted IAC Idle air control valve passsage. Fairly simple to fix. Remove air filter trunking all the way to the throttle body to allow access. The IAC allows air passed the throttle when closed at idle. Just on the inside of the throttle body in front of the throttle flap there is an opening in the throttle wall. This is the air inlet to the IAC; there is an outlet similar on the other side of the throttle. Use carb cleaner and cloth to shift the grime from this tubing and get it like new. Hold the throttle flap open to get at both ends of the IAC tubing. The IAC can be detached and cleaned to a shine. Reinstall the IAC and replace all air pipe ducting. Leave for about 20 minutes to allow any cleaner residue to dry out. When you restart you might experience a bit of uneven running but this will disappear very quickly as the last of the cleaner dries out
