I've chosen to ignore the problem. I don't need the headache, since I hardly ever use the oven...thanks.

Top burners work, but oven and broiler won't come on and control panel won't light up.


I need the make/model number to help you accurately. However, from what you're describing, it sounds like the oven control board is blown out. The oven is totally separate from the top burners on a lot of units. You will have a separate burner control knob and then a panel for all the oven controls. The fact that the top burners work indicates 240v is getting into the range. Did you have a power outage recently? Usually about 3-4 weeks after the event things happen or *don't* happen with electronic appliances. This is because surge-damaged chips start to fail after a period of time if the unit wasn't blown out immediately by the power restoration. When the power company restores power, there is usually a large surge of current and it overwhelms the computer boards in microwaves, ovens, dishwashers, washers, dryers, refrigerators, etc. Also, I've seen bug infestations where the board is blown out due to the critters crawling across the live boards--if the clock is on, there is power on that board. I hope I helped you!

Element on light stays on, element in use light won't come on for the top burners on


One of the burner switches may have a stuck "element on" arm inside. I found mine by unplugging the switches one by one and restoring power inbetween. Once I restored power and the light went out, I knew I had the problem switch unplugged. Popped it open, freed the stuck arm. Reassembled, twisted the switch a few times to ensure smooth operation and reinstalled the switch. Problem solved.

Hi Brian, thank you for your post!

Sounds like the either both bake and broiler element may be faulty or a potential wiring failure to the elements. You may want to connect with a local servicer who will be best equipped to pinpoint the problem. If you don't know a qualified technician, you can use the service locator option on the manufacturer site to find one near you.

Oven will sometime take an hour to get to temp after being turned on. any thoughts?


If your oven is older or you live near the water check if there is a build up of fine rust over the burners. A fine wire brush lightly run over the top of the burners may be your solution. Before you attempt this disconnect electrical power and turn off the gas supply. If you are mechanical remove the front lower cover by opening the doors, removing the two screws located in the top of the lower cover next to the door hinges. The cover will remove to the front. Next remove the screws holding the shield in fromt of the burners. A long handled fine wire brush will allow you to brush the top of the burners. If there is a film of fine rust it will not be apparent when looking. After careful reinstallation of the burner shield and ensuring there is a safe area away from the exposed electrical connections for you. Reconnect electrical power and gas to the oven temporarily. This will alow the unit to be operated enableing you to look past the pilot flame to see if the burner flames are even across the burners. Disconnect electric and gas supply from the unit prior toiInstalling lower cover. After complete reassembly reconnect power and gas and enjoy.

Hello - I ran out of propane - How do I light the ignition?


Your range is electric ignition and should not require any relighting. There may be air in the line and can be purged at the cook top burners. Just turn the burner knob on until it starts clicking and let it click until the burner ignites. The oven and broiler will then light normally.

Gas Range Oven use without electrical power


It will be necessary to change the top burner orifices when converting to propane. You should be able to light the top burners with a match or lighter, however, the oven will need proper operating voltage.
