Question about KitchenAid KGST307 Gas Kitchen Range
Our broiler and range work fine, the oven lights are on and it says it's preheating, but never gets hot. From reading other posts it sounds like it might be the ignitor. Any thoughts? Thanks in advance, Josh
Very well could be. I'm assuming the bake burner is the problem, right? Does the igniter glow at all? If it is glowing, but the burner does not light, is it usually a symptom of an igniter that has become weak. If it does not draw enough current the gas valve will not open and the burner will not light. This is a safety feature to prevent free flowing gas without ignition. If the broil burner is functioning properly, then more than likely the gas valve and regulator are working fine. In most ranges both burners are fed from the same source. You could try swapping igniters between the broil and bake burners to prove the theory. Or, you could just replace the igniter all together. Current readings are as follows: Round shaped glow igniter: 2.7 to 3.2 amps Square shaped glow igniter: 3.2 to 3.7 amps If you can give me the exact model number off your range (usually located around the oven door or on the back of the range) I can give you the correct part number you will need. Most appliance repair stores carry the igniter. I hope this helps you.
