It's a whirlpool MOD# SF377PEGQ 1 Thanks for your concern. Wayne

    My Whirlpool Super Capacity 465: The stove works, the oven doesn't. I am getting gas past the regulator, but it is no getting to the gas tube in the oven. What is the most likely problem(s) & what is the average cost to fix it?

    Same issue here. Google lead me to this site. Broiler works fine. Stove works fine. Oven just won't light.

    My whirlpool super capacity 465 will not ignite. There is no power what so ever going to it. There is nothing on the display. I've noticed that last week the display read "PF" -power failure..but everything lighted fine. I've unplugged the unit thinking that might help, but it didn't. I can light it with a match but that's it.

    ok the reason i ask the broiler and oven have their own ignition systems now if you will send me the complete model number off the serial plate on the front of the oven usually behind the bottom door ill got to whirlpool and lock up the problem also any trouble codes if it displays and did this just happen all of a sudden or any strange thing like self clean or such more info better to solve

  • robert samples May 11, 2010

Now you say your top burners aren't lighting well either have you noticed any difference in the flame height if you turn all the burners on all the way

    look in the oven up at the broiler tube and tell me if you can see the tube and ignightor ir you can turn on the broiler and let mi know if it glow-es red

  • robert samples Jan 17, 2008

    we aren't done just trying to diagnose the problem its one of three things as i see it 1the electronic oven control is bad but that usually displays a f code 2the oven ignightor is bad but most of the time if that's the case the broiler will ignite unless both are bad which can happen but rare 3 either the oven safety valve is bad or rust is restricting the screen in the pressure regulator from the in coming gas line which would effect the whole oven . were just trying to narrow it down so we fix the right part sorry but its not the kind of promblem where i can just type a fix



Hi.I'm back, no the broiler doesn't glow either. ran some tests and i have 116.4 volts @ the igniter. and when I checked igniter I recieved an open circuit. Tested a new igniter and it showed a reading thus making me believe that the old igniter has open circuit. Also did ohms resistance test ?? on valve regulator and recieved reading, thus eliminating that the valve is probably not defective. So where I'm at is I am going to install the new igniter and see if it fires up . Then do the same tests on the broiler and see where I stand. Maybe our broiler has been out awhile and went unoticed. Till the bake went out. Make any sense? I may sound confused but confident that I will prevail... LOL thanks for everything,

I have a Whirlpool super capacity 465 gas oven that won't stay lit. It often lights up the first time just fine but then it turns off which is normal but when it tries to relight itself the ignitor...

That sound to me like yall have some carbon buildup on the igniter. On this stove the igniter does 2 jobs. It lights the burner and verifies back to the control that Houston we has ignition. If junk is built up on that ignitor then she won't be sending verification of ignition back to the control. That white residue needs to be removed. NOTE: I don't have your model number I am going by what you describe that this stove is a Direct spark ignition model. If you have a normal ignitor it probably is weak and not drawing 3.5 amps to open the valve. Post a model number (bottom drawer frame)

How do you put a door on a whirlpool gas super capacity 465

The hinges on OVENS usually fight you trying to install the door.

The trick is that you bring each hinge down and put a nail through a little hole that is usually provided to hold the hinge open.

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.

My oven Whirlpool super capacity 465 is not turning on..the lights/timer/clock is dark and the gas burners work!!!

I would check the power to the oven and then the wiring from the receptacle to the back of the oven. You will probably find the cause of your problem here.
