Question about Whirlpool Kitchen Ranges

1 Answer

Whirlpool gas range

My electric ignition has quit working. I have to light the burners with a match. Occasionally, tho, if I have the oven on at the same time the burners are on, the electric ignition will start clicking, and the burners will work fine for a few days, then they stop again. Thanks for any help with this problem.

You may have a bad spark/ignition module, it is located under the main top (on most models) and tells the burners too spark

The electric igniters for the stove burners stopped working. All four stopped at the same time.


If all 4 stopped working at the same time, the problem is with the spark modulator.

If the igniter is working on several of the burners but not on another, (or any variation), the problem is with the igniter wiring harness.

By design, the igniter for each burner is daisy chained in the wiring harness such that if one goes, the others will still work.

Whirlpool WFG361LVS2 oven. Broiler and burners ignite but oven will not. I can hear gas and the igniter sparks but will never light the oven.


get someone to hold a long gas match near the main burner when you try the oven . If it lights then I would suspect the igniter. even tho you can hear it snapping .

On my whirlpool gas range only 1 burner out of 5 will ignite. oven light works, oven ignites. only 3 months old and worked fine until now.


Most often when cleaning, soapis left behind and obstructs the flow of ignition gas normally directed at the exact point of the spark. Check this area and use a small wire brush to clean these area of the burners that do nto work. Let us know if this helps. Eric Campion

Gas does not ignite/click on while trying to bake


Hi,
The problem most likely is with the igniter that lights the burner for your oven. I have just written a tip on that subject. You can view that here.

The oven pilot is out. The ignitor still works and the burners on the top of the stove still work. Tried to maually light pilot with match from the back of the broiler and it doesnt light


MOST modern appliances that use gas ignition (including dryers) no longer use a pilot. These appliances are equipped with a burner assembly with an electric igniter. The model number you have this question listed under is configured this way. The following link explains igniters and how to access the them on a gas range:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r401858-replacing_oven_igniter_gas_range

If you are having ignition problems with one of the oven manifolds (bake or broil), it may be a simple matter of a weak or bad igniter. Just because an igniter glows, does not mean it is good. If the igniter is weak, the gas safety valve will not open and gas will not flow. So...attempting to light with a match will not work. If BOTH manifolds are experiencing the same problem, you may have a bad regulator or electronic oven control (EOC) board. The EOC controls all your oven features.

The surface burners use an electrode type igniter for ignition. There is one mounted next to each surface burner assembly. They get their electric source from a spark module. If none of the surface igniters are working, you may have a bad spark module. If one single burner is not igniting, the problem is probably the electrode.

If you require additional assistance, please let me know. If your model number is different form the one listed, please post back with your correct information so that I may assist you better. The model number should be located on a name plate around the oven door, or lower drawer opening. Some manufacturers place the model number on the back of the operator console.

If you have any questions, please let me know. I hope this is helpful to you.
