Question about Ovens

1 Answer

Phantom ticking I have a Whilpool Gas Stove Super Capacity 465 a little over three years old. I happen to come up last night and heard the "ticking" sound that I associate with the ignitor on the burners. It happened twice and lasted about three seconds each time. I don't smell gas and the burners seem to work fine when I tested them. I did clean the stovetop yesterday with soap and water, removing all the pats and replacing them

    This stove was new when we bought the house three years ago. I tried to clean the range by lifting the top cover. It was a little difficult to lift the top so I just put it back how it was. Since then the Large front burner lights but smells strongly of gas. The other burners work fine.

Wait about three days to see if it stops this is typical when you clean one this way as water can get in the ignighter switches if not you have to replace the switches which are on the knob shaft behind the panel and come in sets of four and its not hard

    the gas valves are seperate from the ignighter switches so you wont get no gas unless you turn the knob on when you turn the knob to lite position it also turns the ignighter switches and the gas the gas valves are mechnical and the switches are electronic ig water gets in the switches it can cross the contacks and click but the only way to get gas is hand turn the knob so your safe

I have a whirlpool 465 super capacity stove. the top burners seem to have a mind of their own. 1 in the back doesnt come on at all and the other go to high heat even if i set them on low settings

No solution, just that you are not alone. We have had our Whirlpool super capacity 465 for 10 years, and about a year ago that large burner started to randomly go to high, even though the control is set to simmer. Ruined a few meals by not being right there watching.

Whirlpool super capacity 465 oven quit lighting

Check the burner ports near the ignitor for blockage. I had one of these units, and the ignitor was not mounted correctly, and caused a similar problem

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.

Same thing happened to me about 1 month ago... Did you get some kind of power outage or lightning strike??? I am pretty sure the stove part works but the oven doesn't right?!?! It might be 2 things.. Either the temperature sensor inside the oven doesn't work or it's the control board (where the clock is). I tried to chaned teh temp sensor but it did not work. I then changed the Control Board and oven works again...
