Top oven does not work...

The top oven does not work: once Iset the bake/broil temp. the main control board clicks but the temp. does not change: it stays @ 100 F. I noticed that the ignitor is not coming on. I troubleshooted the main board' output volts to dual valve - upper and lower bake - and upper broil - and it seems fine, there is voltage across to the ignitor too. I ohmmed the ignitor and it has "some" resistance ( I do not know what is the exact value), so then I replaced the upper ignitor and still the top oven/new ignitor do not work. At this point I am thinking to check the 'DUAL VALVE" that connects the ignitors. Any suggestions? Thanks for your help.

    I did not check the continuity through the dual valve coils yet, but assuming those coils are both ok ( I don't know their specified resistance values..) then if the ignitor does not come on at all I have to believe that it is either a broken white (neutral) wire between the valve' coil and the neutral terminal, or loose connection at the neutral terminal. Apparently I did not see anything that looks like a " broken " wire...

    Thanks Mike, I am aware about not to try to supply 120V directly to the valves' coils and I do have the schematics. Thank you again for your support.

Check the valves to see if there is any gas discharge. If there isnt, it could be a blockage in the tubing or a defective valve..

The thermostate which is responsible for cutting of temperature when it reaches preset temperature on the oven. Since ignitors are fine.

Thermostate sends signal about the present status of temerature to igniotor to work or whatever way it is required.

First you check the thermostat

If the oven is wired properly and correct polarity on the outlet, here is the power flow.
Power will come from the control board relay, through the ignitor, then goes to ground through the dual valve.
The resistance of the ignitor causes it to heat up, the hotter it gets the more power goes to the valve. When the amp draw gets to about 3.2 amps there is enough power for the valve to open and let the gas into the burner.
It is unusual for both the bake and broil functions to fail at the same time. They are separate circuits. The dual valve is actually 2 separate coils inside one housing.
If you have continuity through the ignitors and continuity through the valve coils, check the wiring from the valve to ground. These should be the white wires that come from the valve and connected together before going on to the main neutral connection.
Let me know what you find.
Thanks, Mike

    forza,
    I don't know what the resistance should be. I don't remember Maytag listing resistance specs in their tech sheets for anything, but the circuit is pretty simple. If you have power to the ignitor, a good ignitor, a complete circuit through the coil, and a good path to neutral, the ignitor should glow.
    A word of advice, do not try to put 120v to the valve to check it. The resistance of the ignitor cuts the voltage to the coil and if you put full 120v to it, it could burn out the coil. I found this out by experience.
    If you don't have the wiring diagram for the stove, you can go to sears.com, click on parts, enter the complete model number and view a parts breakdown and wiring information. You can also get schematics from servicematters.com. Click on the Maytag link and download the library and you can search by model number.
    Let me know if you have any questions.
    Thanks, Mike

There should be a temperature sensor controlling the flow of gas as a safety measure somewhere, like in a gas water heater. It would try to fire the starter and if it gets no flame it will kill the gas completely.

Measure the resistance on the valve if you have continuity its good if not replace it

Posted on May 27, 2008

  • robert samples May 29, 2008

    id say your thinking is pretty much right on there is no resistance value for the valves your looking for continuity now other than that you have to look for amps and current draw on the valves im assuming you have the tech sheet if not e mail the model number to me ill send you one b4829@yahoo.com and im a real appliance repair tech not computers cell phones playstations or any of that junk

My Kenmore model 950 range will not broil or bake. The control board seems to work and allows me to set the temp, etc., the clock works, the control board makes noise which sounds like it always did


Most of the time, when BOTH the oven bake and broil elements don't work, it is usually caused by an open thermal circuit breaker or fuse. When did your oven stop working? After a self-clean? This is the most common cause of one of these thermal fuses opening. Usually this device is located on the back of the oven. A few of them are manually-resettable; but most of them are one-shot thermal cut-out devices (thermal fuses) which have to be replaced once they have been triggered.

Hi. I have a Maytag CWE4200ACB wall mount oven that seems to have a circuit board/timer problem. When the oven is turned on and temp set you can hear (at the control panel) one click and the "on"...


Hi.

The clicking noise comes from the control board relays. The board has three relays. One for for bake. One for broil. One for light/fan auxiliary functions.

Try switching on only bake or broil. If one of the two elements (either bake or broil) gets hot, then the problem is either element or timer board. Make sure that the element has continuity at the Ohm meter.

If both bake and broil do not work test first the oven temperature sensor located inside the oven cavity. Make sure that impedance of the sensor at room is about 1.1KOhms . If sensor is open or shorted, replace the sensor. If sensor reading is OK test wiring and elements for continuity and eventually replace the control board if the rest is OK. Even if door switch should not affect regular programs, check the door switch reading impedance or jumping it.To test wiring test continuity of red and black lines. Check black line between power cord and relay board. Test with particular attention the oven temperature sensor, that is a common cause for your symptoms. Here the part:Long Oven Sensor Kit

Here a wiring diagram for your oven.

Here all parts and diagrams.

Regards.

Ginko.

The top burners work fine and the oven does not appear to have any problems but the heat elements (bake & broil) suddenly quit working.


Usually a safety thermostat, but it can also be wiring, a control board, or a dlb relay. Call Kitchen Aid warrantee service on this, as some of the electonics have a longer warrantee on them. Good Luck, Appliance Specialists.

Unplug the range.
I would open the control console and locate the BAKE/BROIL terminals on the Oven control. I would reverse the wires,plug the range in and try again.
Sounds to me like someone has changed out a part and wired it wrong.

Won't bake, but all else works


Swap the broil and bake ignitors(they are both the same) see if the bake works. If the oven bake works then you need only replace the ignitor. If it does not then I would say you should check the valve for continuity. If open, bad gas valve. If continuity is detected, bad oven control.

Gas stove Thermadore 36 inch Model PGR366 PL Oven wont bake but will broil


this may seem like a silly question if you've already tried it but have you checked the over temp breaker? If you have no idea what I'm saying there is a breaker on the back side of your machine. Of course Thermador is so kind to place it convenietly behind the back panel so you'll have to remove that. There should be a little red button in there somewhere toward the top middle half of the machine I should say. If you press that button it may work.

Electric Oven not getting hot enough


Sir, I think the top oelement is for broiling ONLY. It should not turn on when baking. The clicking may be the oven heating up.
How far apart were the oven temp instrument and the digital?
Don't expect them to match...they are inaccurate.

1. Heat water until it boils. Place digital therm in boiling water until it comes up to 212deg. If it is not at 212 in boiling water, record the error.(this gives a rough calibration to the digital)
2 Turn on oven, set to 350 deg, place digital therm on rack. Wait until oven reaches 350 (on stove) and read the digital. Note the difference between the two
