I was preheating the oven today and all of the sudden the control panel started turning the whole oven on and off. It did this for over an hour. It would click on and off and then stay on for a second and then off for a minute then click back and forth. When it was off the range still worked but not the control panel or the oven. When it would click back on the range and oven would be locked like the power had gone out.

Re: Control panel & Oven doesn't work
Most likely the problem with your range is shorted pads on the key pad. It is not repairable and the key pad has to be replaced. If you would like to do it yourself, I need the complete model number starting with a three digits prefix(the name plate is located on the frame behind the storage drawer) and the color of your range. Then I'll be able to help you to find the best deal on the part and provide you with the step by step instructions to replace it.

Oven temp sensors sense the temperature is the oven cavity and the temp sensor changes resistance, this change in ohm resistance tells the oven control what temperature the oven cavity at and tells the control to shut off the element or turn it back on. The most common temp sensors used today ( *not all ) are approx 1000-1100 ohm resistance at room temperature ( 70�F ) Some ohm readings and there temperature: Degrees F - Resistance 100 - 1143 ohms 200 - 1350 ohms 300 - 1553 ohms 350 - 1654 ohms 400 - 1753 ohms 500 - 1949 ohms
even if the ingitor glows, and the oven wont lite, the odds are that the ingitor is bad. it must draw 3.2 amps to open the gas valve. the only way to test the ignitor is with an amp probe.
replacing the ingnitor is about 90% a sure thing.
