Westinghouse Freestyle 476 Cooktop Oven

Dear JPsAppliance,

I have a Westinghouse Multifunction Freestyle 476 Gas fired oven. The cooktop burners are working fine with the ignition.

The single power point is switch to ON. However both lights for the OVEN and TEMP setting DO NOT come on when turn to different combination.

Please advise on where to look for the problem.

After getting an electrician out, apparently the time needs to be set on the oven. As we're in a rental & don't have a manual/ couldn't download one, we got it to work after holding the first two buttons in (the timer buton + the one that looks like a hot pot) along with the + button at the far right, which made the tim tick on, so it could be set.

The oven works now! : )

Yes, the same here. Just came home from work & found "0:00 auto" flashing on the oven display. Stove top was working, but oven did not. Setting the time helped. Frustrating to be looking for a fix though. So silly it can go off without us noticing and disable the whole oven. Westinghouse should look into uploading their manuals online (with proper troubleshooting).
As a cheaper option, it's mainly installed in rental properties. Tenants rarely get hold of manual.

This solution works really well! (Thanks Erin Bee)

Exactly same situation. Hold down the first 2 buttons on the left side under the clock/timer. Just needed the time to be set. Thanks -Sydney, Australia 29 March 2013

I have a 5 burner gas range and cooktop one burner on cooktop won't start


The oven safety valve
(also called the gas valve) is the part that ensures that gas is not released until the igniter has reached the correct temperature needed to ignite the gas. While this part can fail, it is uncommon. If the hot surface igniter does not glow you should first verify that you have voltage to the circuit. This is a live voltage check and should be performed by a qualified person. If voltage is lost at the valve terminals then you should verify the continuity of the bi-metal in the valve using a multi-meter.

The oven burner igniter
commonly known as the hot surface igniter is used in modern gas oven burners to open the gas valve and to ignite the gas. As the igniter draws electric current it will heat to a high temperature and glow, as well as cause the bi-metal in the oven safety valve to warp and open the valve releasing the gas to be ignited. This sequence normally takes about a minute. Igniters come in both flat and round styles and are very fragile. If the burner does not light then you should check the igniter first. If the igniter does not glow at all, then check for power to the circuit. This is a live voltage check and should be performed by a qualified person. If power is present then the igniter may be open circuit and can be checked for continuity with a multi-meter. If the igniter is glowing, but the burner is not lighting, the igniter may be weak and still be at fault because it requires a certain amount of current draw to open the valve. This check requires the use of an amp meter and should be performed by a qualified person. If the igniter is defective then it must be replaced.

Hi, my Blanco freestanding electric oven-FD9045WX-(gas cooktop) went out with a flash & a bang. The fan element was in pieces and the thermostat totally fried. The clock/timer does not go nor do the sparks...


Check for power at the supply terminals, follow it up to the high temp cutout > timer > multifunction switch > thermostat > element

Careful, don't electrocute yourself!

Westinghouse oven GWH 476 SLP Multifunction. The pilot cones on but not igniting ? no gas getting through


Hi RMSINN,

Believe it or not, the clock has to be set before the oven will light.

To set the clock, instead of using function names for buttons, we'll just call them buttons 1 through 6 going from left to right.

Push buttons 1 and 2 at the same time. You're now in clock setting mode. Push buttons 5 and 6 to make the clock go minus and plus.
Cheers

I have a Maytag gas oven that I bought in 2001 and


It could be the safety cut out is broken? or not in the pilot flame. You could carefully check to see if the little probe is close to the burner and hasn't been knocked some how?

Otherwise you may have to call a gas cooker specialist . . Sorry.

Frididaire gas oven won't light


Does the cooktop burners work? if they do then the problem is either the safety valve or the glow plug (even though it glows). Try tapping the safety valve. If the oven lights up change the glow plug.Otherwise change the safety valve
