Question about Ovens
Hi, thinking about replacing the bake igniter assembly on my super capacity 465. Everything seems to work fine with the exception of the oven itself. Based on forums I have read, the igniter assembly might be the answer. Question - does replacing this part also control the release of gas in the oven as well? At the present time I hear nothing in the form of gas flow when I try to run the oven itself.
check the operation of the micro switches on the lock motor. that they are open when they should be and closed when they should be. often they need to be cleaned or replaced. if this doesnt help re post there is some board work to do, i would suggest a tech do this part though. always unplug range when you work on them! good luck.

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...

I had the same FSE error which the whirpool web site advises that you will need to schedule a service appt to fix. Instead I leaded against the door while initiating the cleaning cycle and the door locks and oven cleans fine.

I will rarely say "call a professional" here because this is a do it yourself site right?
However, in this case, you obviously have a gas leak and/or malfunctioning gas valve.
Unless you have experience and training in detecting gas leaks I highly recommend shutting the gas off to the unit, ventilating the area, and calling a pro.
Gas can be very dangerous if handled improperly and a mere spark can "make house go kaboom".
If you are smelling it strong enough that you have to open windows, it is a potentially dangerous situation.

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.

The glass lens cover for the bulb is usually screwed into the socket so turn it counter clockwise and see if it comes off. When replacing the light bulb, press the door switch to ensure no power is going ot the bulb socket to prevent it from damaging the new bulb.
