Question about Amana ACS3350AS Gas Kitchen Range

2 Answers

Stove burners work fine Broiler works fine too The Bake starter is glowing The lower flame ( I removed the cover) for the "Bake" seems to be OK when it is on. When using the "bake' setting I can not get the oven up to the desired temp. For instance: i set the desired temp to 450, but, the oven stops heating at 350. The oven is not always stuck at the same temp either, but, it always seems to be in the 300s. On a rare occasion it seems to work correctly. right now I can hear it shutting on and off at 390. Because the broiler, stove burners work well I assume it is an issue with the valve going the the "Bake" burners, a temperature regulator issue or a combo of both. HELP!! Thank you, Paul

    Your oven temperature is control by the electronic control board by the use of the temperature probe.

    So the problem is either the temperature probe is malfunction or the sense temperature is not always the same so you must replace it.

    Second the electronic control board is malfunction and it does not read correctly the temperature that the probe sense.

    So the correct procedure is to replace first the temperature probe which is cheap part work it again and if you have the same problem then you will have to replace the electronic board.

Hello,

Here are two instances of when food "bakes poorly:" When the food you're baking is done on top but not on the bottom--or when baking just takes far too long to finish--the bake element may be burned out. You may get fooled into thinking it's working, because the oven is hot inside. But many electric ovens use the broil element, too, during the preheat and bake cycles. So the food may be getting heated only by the broil element, which causes poor baking results. If the bake element is burned out, replacing it should solve the problem. Otherwise, you need to further troubleshoot the oven's electrical system to locate the defective wire or component. When the temperature is consistent but too high or too low, it could be one of several different things. First check to see if the thermostat sensing bulb has come loose from its holder. It could be lying on the floor of the oven or resting on the heating element. This would cause the oven to not heat correctly. If the thermostat bulb is not dislodged, it's likely that the thermostat or sensor is either mis-calibrated or defective.

Take care.

    Hello,

    If
    your burner always heats below expected rate, when it's on--regardless of how you
    set the burner knob, the switch contacts are shorted closed. Check the
    circuit for any other grounds, then replace the switch.

My gas oven (Frigidaire Gallery) is not preheating or coming up to temperature. The broiler and stove top burners work fine.


Most probable cause is a weak bake burner ignitor,if you can remove the floor of the oven and see a orange glow but within one minute thier is no flame the ignitor that glows is weak and needs to be replaced,if no glow at all ,if your capable find the 2 wires to the bake ignitor,using a volt meter set to AC volts there should be 120vac to the ignitor. If their is 120 vac and absolutly no glow the ignitor is cracked and needs to be replaced,if their is not 120 vac it could be the gas safety valve or control

Gas Oven - no flame at Bake Baffle - Glow Bar glows fine


If the glow bar is working (glowing) it is the gas valve. BUT, the glow bar can also actually glow and still not be working 100% and letting enough current through to the valve. You could swap an identical valve out to check it, if you don't have a meter. It's more than likely the valve though.

KENMORE GAS STOVE OVEN LOWER BURNER WON'T WORK


Most likely a hot-surface ignitor has failed. If it doesn't consume enough current, the gas valve won't open. It's usually a fairly easy fix, once you gain access to the ignitor and have a new one to replace it with. Make sure you unplug the range...

XL44 oven will not work


The fact that the igniter on the broiler actually begins to glow rules out your Electronic Oven Control (EOC) board. Usually when both oven features fail to work the EOC, or wiring, is the culprit. But...in your situation, the broiler igniter glows, but the bake igniter doesn't. You don't see this happen very often, but I believe you may have two bad igniters. The following link explains how to replace an igniter and gives you some theory behind how they operate:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r401858-replacing_oven_igniter_gas_range

Although an igniter glows, it still may be bad. This is usually dependent upon the age of the stove and the frequency of use. Usually, the bake igniter burns out first, because it is used more often. These igniters also grow weak with age. Which means, if they do not draw the required current necessary to open the gas safety valve, you will not have ignition. This is a designed safety feature that prevents free flowing gas from filling the oven box before ignition. I would recommend replacing both igniters to see if this corrects your problem. If you require additional assistance, or have questions, please let me know before you rate the solution. I hope this helps solve your problem.

Getting to the Pilot


Your model JGBP28DED2WH uses spark ignition on the stove top burners, and a glow bar ignitor, part number WB2X9154 for the oven and broiler. To get to the bake ignitor if oven will not light: Take the racks out of the oven. Remove oven floor by removing two screws at back of oven floor and lifting floor. Remove the square metal flame spreader to get to the burner / ignitor assembly. (note: The ignitor may still glow when you try it, but usually is still the problem)

My broiler works - but the oven does not - GE Dual Fuel range


Thanks for providing the full model number, which allows us to look up part numbers and see exploded views of your product.
Most likely the bake ignitor is bad (even if it still glows, it may not draw enough amperage to allow the gas safety valve to open). One way you can test this on your model is to swap out the broil ignitor for the bake ignitor, as they are the same part number on your model. (part number WB13T10045) The broiler is normally used much less than the oven, so the part does not fail very often on the broiler. You will have to take the cover off the floor of the oven, then the flame spreader, to reach the burner area. The ignitor is the rectangular part at the back, on the side of the burner. (only two wires to deal with) (By the way, for future reference, your model number ends is SS, as in stainless steel, not a 55)

Oven produces soot when running, broiler ok, stove top ok


Al, you need to seat the needle valve on the bake. Remove the bottom drawer, right below the bake burner you will see the nut just below the air shutter adjustment. Turn this nut clockwise a few times, it might seem hard but just do it. Then try the bake again, you should have a nice bluel flame. Tenbears.
