Oven does not work
First off check to be sure there is 120 volts at the wall outlet as this controls everything and may be as simple as a breaker or fuse. If that's okay then the igniter is the most commonly defective part and has two main functions. First,it draws electrical current through the oven safety valve to open it. Second, when it gets hot enough to glow it ignites the gas in the oven burner. If the igniter gets weak, it will fail to open the safety valve correctly. If the valve does not open, the oven will not heat. To determine if the igniter is defective, observe the igniter when the oven is on. If the it glows for more than 90 seconds without igniting the gas flame, this indicates that the igniter is too weak to open the valve. If the igniter is weak, replace it. If the igniter does not glow at all, use a multimeter to test the igniter for continuity. If the igniter does not have continuity, replace it.
Gas range oven door with not open
Your self cleaning cycle is running. When self cleaning is running the door is automatically locked and will not unlock until the self cleaning cycle completes or self cleaning is turned off. You should be able to just turn off the self cleaning cycle and the door will unlock. Do not try to pry open the oven door. You will just damage the door and/or the catch.
How many cubic feet is this model of Amana Range?
actual oven space? Never had anyone ask that before. Even manufacturers don't list that info. Why not just measure depth x width x height (of oven cavity) in inches and multiply to get an estimated total of square inches. Then divide by 144 (the number of cubic inches in a cubic foot).
Amana gas oven not working
The ignitor may be too weak to open the gas valve. If you have a volt/ohm meter capable of reading AMPS you can hook up to a ignitor wire and turn the oven ON. If you read less than 3.5 amps replace the ignitor. If 3.5 amps or more are read,replace the gas valve.
