Question and Answers

Q:

I have a Whirlpool Gas Range M#TGS325KQ0, S#RP2613684 when I turn on the oven everything works fine, but only stays on for a short time and then shuts off.

A:

A non working Oven is not something any of us want to see. If you are technically handy, this is a good site to get instruction and fix some things yourself. If you do not feel confident doing your own repairs, an option is to visit Sears Home Services and use the scheduler. While you wait for the expert to review your model, you can check the bottom links for some possibilities. Hope this is of help.

To diagnose the problem with your oven you need to try the broil burner and see if it works. Watch the broil burner light so you see what the sequence is. Don't put your head in the oven to watch.

If the broil burner works, remove the 2 screws holding the oven bottom panel in and remove the oven bottom. Remove the flame spreader from the top of the bake burner and turn the burner on.

The ignitor should spark and light the bake burner immediately. If the burner doesn't light within 3-4 seconds the ignition module will turn the gas off. If you smell gas, the ignitor might be out of position or the bake burner might be stopped up or burned out too large.

If the ignitor doesn't spark, you need to test the voltage at the ignition module to see if it is sending voltage to the ignitor.

If you will do these tests and reply on this thread with the results, I will help you diagnose the problem with the range. You will need a volt/ohm meter to make the needed tests.

Sounds great, but could you send me a diagram or explain where to test the ignitor with my Ohm meter, because there is only one wire going into the ignitor. To do a Ohm test you need to have two points to test for continuity. Thanks - please reply.

A:

The oven ignitor receives around 30,000 volts from the ignition module. The ignitor arcs to the bake burner which is grounded. To test the ignitor with an ohm meter put one meter lead on the incoming wire and the other lead on the tip of the ignitor. You should read 0-2 ohms. The ignitor on your range is a piece of metal to carry the high voltage and arc.

After checking things a little further, I sometimes get a spark at the ignitor, but it only it doesn't always light the burner. Do you think the ignitor could be going bad, or could it be the ignition module. Can you tell me where the ignition module is located and what the part number is?

A:

I suspect the problem is the bake burner is not properly grounded. There are 2 screws holding the bake burner. Remove the screws and reinstall them. While the screws are out, lift the bake burner and look at the holes for the flame around the ignitor area. If there is rust on the burner, it will effect the spark of the ignitor. The ignition module is located in the backsplash next to the clock. The part number of the ignition module is 9758080, and the price is $92.66.

thank you for your help. I installed a new bake burner with ignitor and it is working fine now. I think the ignition module is OK. Thanks again.
