Unable to preheat

I have a SR379 whirlpool gas range. The burners and broiler work fine. During the preheat cycle, the gas clicks on and off never reaching the desired temp. This problem occurred after cleaning the oven then turning the gas off for a few months. After running the burners on top for a few minutes (in case there was air in the line) the preheat cycle worked, but the problem reoccurred again later that day. The sensor on top is clean without residue. I just can't pinpoint the issue. Any suggestions?

You need to replace the temp. sensor. It's not reading correctly. These occasionally go when you use the self clean as the range gets up as high as 900 degrees. Replace it and it will solve the problem

Gas oven heats up to proper temperature and then quits heating.

It sounds like you may have a Whirlpool gas range. If so it is more that likely the burner assembly itself. The electrode attached to the burner gets to where it will light during the preheat but then once it starts to cycle the spark module tries three times to light the burner and then shuts down. the burner assembly comes as one unit with the electrode attached.

When i turn on bake it goes to preheat but nothing happens. the broiler and top burners work fine

If a gas range, you have a defective ignitor,
If electric, you have a burnt out back element

Whirlpool Accubake Super Capacity 465 gas range. Oven won't light

Some gas ranges may take 10 or so minutes to light.
Other than that you may have a defective glow bar ignitor.
If it glows and does not light the reistance in the ignitior has failed.

Sf195lehz5 free standing gas oven,

Check both gas valve solonoids for 216 ohms [blue broiler wire to the orange common and red oven wire to orange common] both must be ok.

Check oven temp sensor for 1080 ohms.

If above are ok then the problem is either the spark module or the control board.

Since the gas valve was not opening and there was not ignitor sound I replaced the spark module for about $90. You have a 50-50 chance of being right.

My range is relitively new and I'm haveing an oven light problem which I traced to the control board so I may replaced this board to for about $200.
