Question about Whirlpool GS563LXS Kitchen Range

Open Question

This range has worked fine for over 3 years. We use the oven a lot, the broiler not often. Last evening after using the stove for several things, then the broiler very briefly, both of them stopped working. The "Preheat" display comes on, then you hear the loud click (which I assume is an electronic valve), then instead of hearing the burners ignite, you get another loud click, no ignition. The stovetop burners all work. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Following up on my own question here, I found a document online titled Whirlpool Gas Range Direct Spark Ignition System, which applies to this range. I got a multimeter, followed the directions in the document. Seemingly this procedure indicated this Spark Ignition Module, which controls both the broiler igniter and the bake (oven) igniter, was bad. Then, just to be thorough, I tested the double solenoid which is part of the electronic Gas Distribution Valve which runs gas to the bake burners and the broil burners. The broil terminal was dead. This manual says if one is dead, neither will operate. The solenoid is tested when it is disconnected from the oven. The solenoid IS connected when you test the spark ignition system. So, my tester showed two problems, and for either one, the manual says replace it. But, it's hard to believe both parts went bad at the same timel So, I hope the gas distribution valve solenoid is the whole problem. Anyway, I going to replace that first, and see what happens. Does that make sense?

Your probably right. The oven sensor, or what you call a probe, when open will not light the oven. Take it out and check for 1 to 1.5K ohms. at room temp. if you don't have that replace the sensor.

I have the same problem intermittently on my Super Cap 465. After reading the following quote from another site, "There have been cases where radio waves, electronic signals and sometimes something as strange as dimmers in lights have caused some weird problems with some computer panels in stoves like these", I tried turning off lights that might be on the same circuit and wouldn't you know it, the oven igniter circuit worked.

My whirlpool SF265LXTS oven turns on properly, but the oven itself isn't getting hot. The gas stove top and broiler both work fine.


It sounds like you might have a clogged burner plate or manifold. You should call a certified gas repair service. This could be very dangerous, even deadly.

If you just purchase it or it is still under warranty take it back it going to cost the same to repair. You also run the danger of creating an electrical fire.

There is a vent pipe for the oven in the back usually just under the left rear burner, it is normal too get hot air there, if your drip pans are all solid you might want too change too pans that have holes in the center it should allow the top too breath a little better.
