Question about KitchenAid KGST300 Gas Kitchen Range

1 Answer

Oven "bake" doesn't work...

When we hit the "bake" and "start" buttons, the gas oven no longer ignites. The top burners and the broiler still work fine. I thought the bake element might need replacement. If this is the problem, where is it located?

    Thanks for the help! I still needed to have the repair done by a professional, but it was nice to know the exact problem and that it was beyond my own repair skills...

    Our bake element does not ignight any more on our Kitchenaid KGST300. The broil element and the stove top works fine so it can't be a gas problem. We tried setting the temp. to bake on 200 and it ignighted... It has been a touch and go if the oven would turn on for the last few months, and now it won't. We checked the glow bar as suggested with someone else answer, and it is working fine. Please help as I am having overnight company soon! Sharon

The oven on my g70m no gas coming through the grill still operates

Good morning Mark, you most likely have a weak oven igniter. That would prevent the gas valve from opening causing a no heat condition in the oven. Also try the broiler if it's separate from the bake burner.at the top of the oven cavity as opposed to the broiler drawer underneath. That igniter typically gets used less often and takes longer to wear out and the broiler will come on. It could also be a bad gas safety valve but that is an unusual problem. Hope that helps.

Oven won't ignite but broiler does

If your oven won't bake, check these:

Bake igniter
Other causes
Bake igniter Usually when an oven won't bake, it's because the bake igniter is weak or burned out. The igniter is a small, round or rectangular device, that's about 1 inch by 4 to 8 inches. It's near the burner itself.

The burner is the tube-type device the gas flows through before it's ignited. It has many small holes on the sides to let the gas, when ignited, form a long, low flame. If the igniter is weak, if it glows red but doesn't get hot enough, or if it's burned out, the gas doesn't flow to the burner and the burner won't ignite. If this is the problem, you may need to replace either the igniter or the gas safety valve. Usually the igniter is to blame.

Other causes Other reasons that your oven may not bake are:

  • The clock settings are incorrect (if you have timed baking or a self-cleaning oven).

  • The thermostat is defective.

  • The safety valve that prevents accidental gas flow is defective.

  • The selector switch is defective.

Bake does not work but broiler does.

OK, it is likley that the oven ignitor isn't working and needs to be replaced. To verify if this is the problem, when you turn on the oven to BAKE and set the temp at say, 350. Watch through the window, (or you can have the door open). Look at the bottom, back, center and see if you see a bright orange glow appearing under the bottom panel.

If you don't, that is why the oven won't lit the gas. There is an ignitor for both the broiler burner at the top and for the bake burner in the oven compartment.

The reason that the temp display reverts to 100 degrees is because that is the lowest default temp setting for the display and until the oven temp actually starts to increase, it won't change. So the temp display is working correctly for the BAKE function.

Here's a line drawing showing the part you may need. Ignitor Part # WB13T10045. The good news is that your oven uses the same ignitor for both the broiler and bake burner tubes, so you could swap them if you wish to confirm that is the problem before you go and order/buy a new one. These aren't cheap at $91 bucks, but you can shop around the web for a better price if you determine you need one.

Sometimes the ignitor burns out half way through but because it still lits/glows, people think it's OK, but it won't get hot enough to signal the gas valve to open and allow gas to ignite and get the oven cooking.

Hope this helps you out and remember to disconnect the oven from the electric power before performing any repair work. Best regards!
