Question about KitchenAid KGST307 Gas Kitchen Range

1 Answer

Oven takes too long to reach temp and the smell of gas

After turning on the oven and setting the desired temp, it will take at least 30 mins before it will come close to the set temp. While using convection, will result in a heavy smell of gas... Call my locate fire department to confirm with a meter if there was an excess of gas than normal. Yes, there was. After just 1 min from turning on...The fireman turn the oven off immediately since the meter was starting to go up quickly. They advised me not to use again and call a tech.

Sounds like a weak ignitor is not opening the gasvalve completely. Only testing the amp the ignitor draws will confirm. It could also be a sticking valve. Have a professional verify, this is not safe.

Oven temp fluctuates


It is normal for the thermal device to turn on and off. Obtaining a steady temp is not always possible. When setting a temperature on some ovens, they have what is called a tolerance point. That means a set temperature has a range of a few degrees up or down. At the Down point, the oven is triggered to energize the coils and bring the interior of the oven back to the settings desired. The other factor is opening the oven and allowing cool air to enter, or in some cases a leaking door seal allows air to enter and heat to escape.

Hi

This means a loose/broken wire on the oven temp sensor or the oven temp. sensor itself is bad and should be replaced. To solve this issue test the oven temp. sensor, it should read between 1080-1120 ohms, if the rating is more then that and the door appears to be closing fine then it is the control board that is bad and should be replaced. Hope this helps...please post back for further assistance.

more than likely there is an issue with one of the temp sensors. you will need to press and hold clear then upper on off at the same time then release them then immed. press clear 3 times and hold on the 3rd till the service screen appears. on the right side you will see internal temp and catalyst temp they should be equal or very close. ill bet one of them is alot higher than the other if so the sensor will need replace but depends which one is bad as there are 2 of them. if the problem is on the lower just repeat above but use lower instead of upper

Oven will not reach desired temperature and slight gas smell


Just had same problem it was nice it waited until christmas dinner, all i did to resolve the problem was switch the upper broiler igniter with the lower one for the oven. I tuned on the oven & it fired right up i never use the broiler on my oven so itll buy me some time. So if you can get the broiler to light try that but i did have the same low temp. & the smell of gas. Good Luck

Takes too long for oven to heat up


Hhi, Is this a gas oven? If the ignitor is going bad, it will not open the gas valve as soon as it should.
