Question about Ovens
Is it normal to hear a hissing sound of gas while using the oven?
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?

The most common failure for a nobake on this type of oven is the bake ignitor. turn unit on and look at the bottom of the oven, you should after about 30-45 seconds see an ORANGE glow, if you do not, chances are you have a failed ignitor.Remove lower part of oven and if you have a meter, place one lead on each terminal and check for continuity( a closed circuit)
If you have an "open" circuit, the ignitor is bad

1, If the fan motor . in the
back of the oven is going round and the temperature light is on (normally
little red light), but there is no heat then you will probably need a new oven
element, these are generally very easy to fit and readily available from our
website these can be tested with a electric meter.
To gain access to the element .you will have to remove the back plate from inside the oven. Once removed you will see the fan and element,. if you look closely at the element .you will probably see a small hole burnt in it where it has blown. Sometimes however there is no evidence of a fault but the element is open circuit ie: broken inside the element casing, either way it will need replacing. Some elements will are fixed from inside the oven and some are held in place by nuts from the rear of the machine.
2, If your fan oven is getting warm but takes a very long time to cook or is burning the food more on one side than the other, then you need to check if your oven fan motor is working you will see the blade turning fast if it is ok. if the element is heating but the fan motor is not blowing the heat into the oven then you need To replace the oven fan motor is a little more expensive and a bit more involved.
3. If you have the opposite problem ie: your oven is over heating and burning everything then you will need to replace your oven thermostat
4, A quite common and easily overlooked answer is if your oven is not working at all ie: no heat and no fan then the chances are that someone has put the oven timer into AUTO mode, simply put oven back to MANUAL mode and all should be working again.

When the burner is burning, are both sides of the burner lit and is it lit all the way down the burner? If it is and you are still smelling gas you should not use the oven until you have it serviced, so you do not have an explosion. Propane is heavier than air, and will settle in low areas, so smell low by the floor around the oven before you light it to make sure you don't have a leak first. To be safe until then, close the shutoff valve on the gas line at the appliance until you get it looked at and fixed. Douglas

The problem is usually the igniter not reaching the correct amp draw .When the igniter does not reach the correct amp draw it may allow the gas valve to partially open or not open at all. The igniters are inexpensive and easy to replace. This video will walk you thru the correct procedure for testing an oven igniter. It may be a different model but the testing will be the same.You can also enter your model # for diagrams and illustrations of your specific model. Not all models are available. All parts come with installation instructions.
