Q:

Remove the Igniter from the Whirlpool gold gas range gw395leps02 Whirlpool gold gas range gw395leps02

A:

Hello glad to help.  Thank You for choosing Sears PartsDirect.com

I am sorry and do understand your frustration when there is trouble with the range.

Glad to help out.   Im  looking at your range model number gw395leps02.

The ignitors are easy to take out and to test.  I have the information just below.   Even if ignitor comes on it can be bad so it is a wise thing to test it.  If it isn't the ignitor it will be the coils.

How to take off bake ignitor:

1.  For safety please unplug the oven for the outlet.

2.  Bring the oven door down and remove the racks from inside.  

3.  Remove the screws holding the burner shield in place and lift the burner shield out of the oven.  When you remove the shield you will see the burner tube.  The Ignitor is attached to the back end of the burner tube.

4.  Remove the screws attaching the ignitor to the burner tube.  Next remove the screws holding the burner tube in place to give yourself some flexibility to disconnect the ignitor wires.

5.  Lift the ignitor up and slide the wires off the contacts.  Depending on the oven, you ignitor may use a wiring harness that can't be accessed from the oven.  

6.  Putting in the new ignitor is to just reverse the details.

 How to check if ignitor is good:

1.  Lower the door all the way down.   May have to remove the hinges so be careful.  The ignitor will be on the back bottom side of the oven.  Usually a cylindar/oblong piece and has a metal covering.  2 wires on the back side with ceramic wire nuts.

2.   Turn the gas on and wait for the ignitor to start glowing.  If it takes more than 2 minutes to do then needs to be replaced.

3.  If it is coming on then look and see if it is a dull orange/reddish flame.  The probablility is that  there is no longer enough current flowing through.  Then ignitor needs to be replaced.

4.  The ohms should read anywhere from 20 to 40 ohms

Thanks Larry. I was thinking about these 2 parts: 9760229 8054129 BTW, I notice that the bake electrode doesn't work. If I try and Broil I hear 2 clicks but no broiling. Does bake electrode have an impact on gas valve and hence impact Broil or are they totally independent? I would be surprised if they both stopped working at the same time.

Hello glad to help.  Thank You for choosing Sears PartsDirect.com

 Hi Vish.

 If both items, the bottom bake and top broil, quit working at the same time then sounds more like you are needing the gas valve itself to send the gas through.  The gas valve is the one key item to send the gas through.  You are right it just isn't very likely that both gas ignitors will quit at the exact same time.

Since you are  hearing the clicks then it shouldnt be the main control board.   With both down look to get the gas valve.   If you order the gas valve, please go on line and speak with parts at 1-800-366-7278 because you can ask them for price match and they will get you the best price possible for the exact part from us at Sears that you need.   Good to save money if possible with Christmas just around the corner.

 If you have further questions please let me know.

 Hello Vish,  

Sorry that you are still having trouble.   I was told by one technician you can't test these gas valves but I see on one listing here and hope it works.

How to test gas valve:

Find the Ohm settings on your  meter and set it fon the lowest setting or rx100.  Then touch the probe tips together and your meter should show 000 or 0.0.0.  Next separate the probe tips and the meter should show 1 or OL.  Remove 3 wires from the gas valve.  They are all different sizes so wont make a mistake when you put them back on.  Put one probe in the middle terminal.  That is the common terminal so you'll leave that there and with the other probe touch one of the other terminals and then touch the other terminal.  Both readings shoud be about 216 OHMS.

 If you have further questions please let me know.
