Whirlpool gas oven broiler lights, oven does not

Hello,

I have a Whirlpool gas range where the broiler lights but the oven does not. I have looked at both igniters and they both glow almost white hot. I have removed cover in the bottom of the oven over the gas tube/igniter and have tried to just light the tube with a long butane lighter. No luck.
I suspect it is an issue with a gas valve not working properly when I make the selection between broil and bake.

    Based on the feedback I got most felt about 90% sure it was the igniter. $50 bucks later and although it was a roll of the dice to replace the baking igniter, that fixed the problem. And it was pretty easy to DIY.

    Thanks!

    Igniter works for both broiler and oven. They glow but gas valve not opening for bake or broil selection.

Yes, broiler ligths up but oven won't

I'd try bake ignitor first. And make sure the gas supply is on.

Sounds like you need a glow coil ignitor. The broiler and the oven have seperate ignitors. You can pick up one from First Source parts house.

I have an older whirlpool free-standing gas range and oven and the broiler works but the bake option does not, the oven doesn't get hot, any suggestions?


you may need to replace the bake ignitor. if it is glowing orange and not white, it isn't hot enough to light the bake. hope this helps

Whirlpool Accubake Super Capacity 465 gas range. Oven won't light


Some gas ranges may take 10 or so minutes to light.
Other than that you may have a defective glow bar ignitor.
If it glows and does not light the reistance in the ignitior has failed.

Broiler works, as do burners. The oven will not come on. Gas whirlpool range 2003 year. Model SF367LEKB


jdelvecchio5Does the igniter (glow bar) come on whenever the bake function is selected.?

If the glow bar does not come on the safety valve will not open - no bake burner. check the electrical harness first then Try changing the igniter (glow bar first) before changing the safety valve/regulator.

Sf195lehz5 free standing gas oven,


Check both gas valve solonoids for 216 ohms [blue broiler wire to the orange common and red oven wire to orange common] both must be ok.

Check oven temp sensor for 1080 ohms.

If above are ok then the problem is either the spark module or the control board.

Since the gas valve was not opening and there was not ignitor sound I replaced the spark module for about $90. You have a 50-50 chance of being right.

My range is relitively new and I'm haveing an oven light problem which I traced to the control board so I may replaced this board to for about $200.
