Question about Amana ACS3350AS Gas Kitchen Range

1 Answer

Describe your Amana ACS3350AS Gas Kitchen Range Problem 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. On a rare occasion it seems to work correctly. I can hear the gas flow shutting on and off constantly and does not seem to want to climb desired temp set at 450. Because the broiler, stove burners work well I assume it is an issue with a valve going bad, a temperature regulator issue or a combo of both. I closed the shutoff valve. When I reopen it the gas turns on momentarily. the control panel is pushed in a bit on the right side where the temp selection buttons are placed. Perhaps the buttons are damaged, but, the buttons work to set the temp. I replaced the temperature sensor probe, but nothing changed. I am wondering if it is the regulator not working properly because the gas goes on, off, on, off quickly. Broil and the stove burners work well.

    I already replaced the temp probe per our discussion a month ago, but, it does not appear to be the fix assuming the new probe is functioning properly.

    Would the gas valve work for the broiler and stove but not the Bake mode?

    Also, I tapped on the regulator( I think that what it was) and it seemed to start the gas flowing but then it quickly shut off again. Also I turned off the shut off valve and then turned it back on . this would also trigger something that would light the burner for 5-10 seconds before it shut off.

    The mylar is a bit damaged, but the buttons appear to react properly. I dont know that much about electronic controls, but, I would be surprised if they were the problem.

    Valve or regulator? or?

Your problem is a frequent one. The most possible is that the temperature sensor part number 2 Sensor, temperature
Part Number: AP4041388 made by WHIRLPOOL, page 3 is malfunction and this is responsible to read the oven temperature which probably sometimes give wrong signal to electronic control to switch off the valve. So you need to replace it since there is not any accurate way to check it and only if you replace it with a new one can see if everything works fine.

There is also two other reasons if it is not the problem. First is the electronic control Erciii, gas- No longer available - This part has been discontinued and is no longer available
Part Number: AP4041311 made by WHIRLPOOL

And second the gas valve VALVE- GAS
Part Number: AP4279176 made by WHIRLPOOL

. Both they can stack and not working properly. The electronic have ten times less chances to be than probe and gas valve one thousand times less chance that probe.

One more thing about the touch pad Overlay, mylar (blk)
Part Number: AP4041927 made by WHIRLPOOL since you have mention some buttons are pressed we also recommend to replace it since the electronic control which is very sensitive and it is not produce anymore this part is protecting it so we recommend to replace this also.

The temperature probe and all the other parts of your range can be found in the following link.

    From you description yes it seems that is gas flow problem and not the electronic control.

    Now both valve and regulator are possible to be malfunctioning either one of the two or both.

    In order to check them you need special accurate gas pressure control testers. Which are very expensive and even professional don't have them.

    So if you able you can try to disassemble the gas valve very slowly so you will remember to put it back together (take photos they will help you later) and you will find the moving pole with the spring which might have became dirty and rusty and it can be not move freely so it either stuck at the open or at the close position sometimes. It very possible that you need to replace it so you don't lose anything to try to fix it and if you are not able you need to replace it.

    As for the regulator it can also be a similar problem stuck from dirt and rust but this is just a diaphragm that open by gas pressure and is much less possible than the gas valve so we advice to start from gas valve .

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.
