Question about Amana ACS3350AS Gas Kitchen Range
I have the same Amana model number. We bought ours a few months before Thanksgiving 2006. never used oven until thanksgiving and well we found out the hard way (husband got burned)
that the door latch was defective. It was designed to long and prevented the door from closing properly. Therfor allowing heat to escape oven,making the out side of range as hot as inside.
Sears came to our home and replaced the old part with the new designed one. If you notice your oven getting really hot you might want to call amana and have them replace it more so if you have children or elderly people at home. If they do not want to replace part,please post your matter on this forum. Best regards.

as far as the elementy working, if it glows red, its working. if the unit is preheating within 12-15 min, id say the elements are fine. as far as not maintaining temp, thats strange, if the elemnt turns on the control is sendinding power, and its shuttin off so its stopping power, sounds as if a relay is geting stuck on the control board, strange thngs happen when you short things out like that.

The ignitor may be too weak to open the gas valve. If you have a volt/ohm meter capable of reading AMPS you can hook up to a ignitor wire and turn the oven ON. If you read less than 3.5 amps replace the ignitor. If 3.5 amps or more are read,replace the gas valve.

Testimonial: "Thanks for the good info."
Is the door hitting the door lock hook. Or a strike pin hitting the inside door panel. If this is a self cleaning range the door seal is a metal mesh and does hold the door slightly away, this is normal. More info ?

It sounds like the Sear's repair person should be looking at the amperage while the burner is in operation...there seems to be an higher output at sometimes.
