Question and Answers

Q:

Will not maintain Heat (Suts downafter 20 minutes) GS563LXSS1 Whirlpool Free standing gas range

A:

Thank You for choosing Sears PartsDirect.com. It is unfortunate to hear that you are having issues with your range oven and do understand your frustration. Glad to help out. Im looking at your model number GS563LXSS1 and based on your symptom I suspect the bake igniter is too weak to open the gas valve once it reaches the set temperature and cycles off. If the bake igniter is weak it will not pull enough current/amperage to re-open the gas valve. A weak igniter would cause this failure. A bad temperature sensor may cause the oven to heat at a lower temperature but it would not likely cause the oven to completely shut off.  Your symptoms point to a weak glow bar igniter in the oven. I provided a theory of operation for that ignition system in the image below. It is likely that the resistance of that glow bar igniter is just at the limit for allowing the proper current flow through that circuit to the safety gas valve. You can check that issue using a clamp-on ammeter if you have one. Be sure that you follow electrical safety guidelines when conducting that amp draw test if you perform it yourself. I hope this information helps with your  troubleshooting. If you have further questions please resubmit your question for further information. Here is a link for a video that will help with troubleshooting.

Thank you for your question and I understand your concern.

The model number provided is not a correct or valid model number. I will assume it was not read correctly and the correct model number is GS563LXSS1 based on the part number you provided. Part number W10116544 is the electronic oven control for the models listed below.

  • GS563LXSB1
  • GS563LXSQ1
  • GS563LXSS1
  • GS563LXST1

I do not have a clear understanding of the symptom you describe as "the controls not responding."

If the control panel is dead; meaning no led's will come on when any button is pushed, it could have a faulty electronic oven control or it could have shorted/faulty touch panel/membrane switch.

The electronic oven control can be accessed and replaced from the rear of the range. Disconnect the power cord from the power source and then remove the panel from behind the control panel to access the electronic oven control board. The control board is likely fastened to a bracket with 2-4 screws. Disconnect one wire at time from the old control and transfer it to the new control and make sure you connect it to the matching terminal. Each terminal should be labeled.

It will be difficult to say which one is faulty and I strongly suggest having technician come out and diagnose the failure. The oven control board and the touch panel are expensive so I strongly suggest calling service and it could save you money.

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 .
