Question and Answers

Q:

oven ignitor 79078582405

A:

Thank you for your question. I'm sorry you are having this problem with the range. From the information listed, this would appear to be a weak igniter but it could also be a control problem, although it's not as likely. A voltage check would need to be made to the igniter to see if it's getting energized. If there is no voltage there, then this would indicate the control # 316557107 is not working. If the voltage is there, the igniter # 316489400 will need to be replaced. Now, even when the igniter does work, if it does not draw at least 3 amps, the safety valve will not open. This also indicates the igniter will need to be replaced. These parts are available at Sears PartsDirect. I hope this will help you. If you would like more assistance, reply to this thread and I will be glad to assist you further. If you do not feel confident repairing this problem yourself, then you can have it repaired at your home by a Sears technician. Here is a link for the website: Sears Home Services.

Q:

How do you light the pilot light in the oven?

A:

The oven on this range does not have a pilot light. It has a glow bar igniter and a safety gas valve that are used in the burner lighting process. Try the broiler to see if it will work properly. If it does then your failure is likely in the igniter for the bake burner. You can remove the bottom oven panel and the flame spreader to observe the ignition process on the bake burner. The igniter will normally glow when the oven is set in the bake cycle. If the igniter does not glow or it glows but the safety valve never opens to light the burner, then the igniter is normally the component that needs to be replaced. If the igniter is glowing, it indicates that the circuit is okay. The safety gas valve will not open and allow gas to flow unless the resistance of the glow bar igniter decreases to a point where enough current flows through the circuit to open the valve. That is why you likely have a failed igniter even if it is glowing. A technician will normally check the current draw through the circuit to verify this type of failure. You may be able to fix this problem yourself by replacing the igniter. You can order a new igniter from the Sears PartsDirect website. The part number for the igniter is 316489400. Replacing the igniter without further diagnosis does pose a slight risk. This is an expensive part (around $70). A number of other failures could prevent the oven from igniting even though they are less likely. You could have a wiring failure, a failed gas valve or a bad electronic oven control board. You may consider having a service technician diagnose and repair the range. Here is a link for the Sears Service website: Sears Home Services .

There seems to be a rusted hole in the burner bar right where the ignigtor is. The flames com on but immediately go back off and cycles on /off, on/off. Some crustiness was cleaned off thus exposing the hole. It has stopped making the popping sound (which had happened ever since we put this unit in. We got the stove used from Craigslist about Easter.

Based on these additional details, I recommend that you replace the burner since it has a hole in it. This will probably fix your ignition problem.

Hell Brad. I did not find information on your Amana oven based on that model number 8114P9286D. You may find some additional letters and numbers on the model number label on the range. I recommend that you recheck that model number label and reply with additional information if possible. If the oven has a pilot light for the bake burner, then you can normally follow the instructions in the owner's manual to re-light that pilot. Many of the ranges in use today have a glow bar ignition system and a safety gas valve like the one shown in this video: Gas Ignition Operation . If you have that type of ignition system in your oven, then you may have a weak igniter on that bake burner. You could also have a problem with the thermostat or electronic oven control board. A wiring failure or a failed safety gas valve could also prevent the bake burner from igniting.

A:

Revel: The oven ignition system consists of the electronic oven control, oven gas valve and the oven glow bar igniter. The bake igniter must receive voltage from the oven control. The igniter must glow red hot and it must pull enough current/amperage to allow the oven gas valve to open. You mentioned that there is an error code but you did not indicate what the error code is. You can remove the oven racks and then remove the two screws at the back of the oven floor. Remove the oven floor and the flame spreader and then you can see if the bake igniter will glow or not. If an error code is displayed, the oven control is likely faulty. Reply in this thread with error code for additional information.

Q:

How do I diagnose an error code F10 on my gas range?

A:


While this is not your exact question, the response answers your question. F10 indicates the temperature on your range went above 550 degrees with the door unlocked or 950 degrees with the door locked.

This is usually caused by a bad oven temperature sensor or a bad connection in the temperature sensor circuit. You need an ohm meter to test the sensor circuit.

I recommend getting a technician to diagnose and repair the problem.
