Oven will not pre-heat properly


you might want to check where the thermometer is located on older models it can be knocked out of position perhaps to close to the roof of the oven which gives false heat reading

I hit 350 and start on my range and sparks flew out of both sides and now the oven does not work. The stove works but not the oven. can you tell me how to fix this.


It sounds as if the bake element has failed. They cost around 8 to 20 dollars. You will need to unplug the stove first. (Shutting off the stove breaker is good to do before unplugging the stove as an added precaution). On the back of the stove there is a metal
cover with a couple of 1/4 inch hex screws. remove this cover and unplug the bake
element. Then remove the two hex screws inside the oven and slide out the bake element. The model number is located below the oven door behind the drawer to
purchase a replacement. Hope this helps.

Amana, ACS3350, gas slid - in range, the oven will not turn


I just had the same problem. I had it repaired and it was the oven ignitor. Labor and Parts $185. I now have an additional problem and I have to call the repair person back. The oven starts up and preheats to temp I set of 350 degrees. Then after awhile it will shut off and after another few minutes the clock will come back on and blink. I will repress oven bake and it will go for a short time and then shut off. I don't know what the problem is yet. I am totaly dis gusted with this stove. The stove is only 8 years old!

Whirpool gas range - propane gas not sure oven is working right


First, the flame should be blue and without much visible yellow. You need to give the gas tube a good cleaning to get out any soot buildup and any partial obstuctions that might be causing the problem. Since you started with a yellow flame and soot, you need to get the burner tubes clean to see if you have resolved the problem after adjusting the regulator and burner valve(s).

You might need to install a different regulator to match the pressure of your gas supply source, as regulators have a specific working range of inlet (supply gas pressure) that they can operate properly at to "regulate" the supply pressure to the stove's needed pressure.

Check your manual and the installation guide to verify what the gas inlet pressure requirements are and check with your gas supplier to see what they are providing you.

To your 2nd question, yes, the gas will cycle on and off when you are using the oven, since the thermostat will call for more heat when needed and shut off the gas/flame once the temperature you set the control at, has been reached. The cycling is a result of the oven trying to maintain the desired temperature for baking.

One reason that you can smell gas when the oven is being used, is because all gas ovens have a surface vent to allow excess heat to escape from the oven compartment, however you should not be smelling raw gas (actually you're smelling the "rotten egg" additive that's put in the gas) all the time, since when the oven is turned on, a small electric ignitor is heated up VERY HOT glowing bright orange inside the oven compartment. Once it's hot enough a sensor opens the gas valve and lets gas into the burner tube to be ignited instantly by the VERY HOT ignitor. It is rare to smell raw gas with this system, but sometimes you'll get a stronger "rotten egg" smell at different times due to the gas company and their system, etc.

As to the gas smell, you should NOT be smelling gas every time the oven cycles on when baking, as a normal ongoing occurrence. During the first few uses, it is normal to smell some gas, but this should go away after a couple of uses. If it doesn't, you should look to make sure the regulator and oven controls are PROPERLY configured and set - Since you've already fiddled with these, it's probably a good idea to have someone from your gas company (or a gas appliance tech) come out and do this. Improper settings can cause some serious problems.

Hope this helps!

Bake part of kenmore not working seems to take to long


Chances are the oven ignitor will need to be replaced.  Look and see if it glows.  If it does then it is weak and not opening the gas valve to lite.  Let me know what you find.

Should be able to remove the bottom drawer and unplug the ignitor from below.  Or you can cut the wires on the old ignitor and splice the new one in using ceramic
