Question and Answers

Q:

Which replacement part should I buy to fix my oven problem?

A:

You could have a failed bake burner igniter (part 31940001) or a bad electronic oven control board (parts 31864501 and 31777903L) that is causing this problem. If the bake burner igniter is glowing when the oven is set in the bake mode, then the igniter itself is the likely failed component. In this situation it is likely that the resistance of the igniter is not decreasing enough to allow the minimum 3.2 amps of current to flow through the circuit and open the safety gas valve for the bake burner even though the igniter is glowing. A technician will normally measure the amp draw with a clamp-on ammeter to verify this failure before replacing the igniter. If the amp draw exceeds 3.2 amps in the circuit then the gas valve would need to be replaced. This is a rare failure but possible.

If the bake igniter is not glowing, a technician will normally check the resistance through the circuit to check for a bad igniter or a wiring failure. If the circuit is good, then the electronic oven control board will need to be replaced.

These tips may help you determine the component that you need to replace. Unplug the range to disconnect electrical power before accessing internal components. If you need more help, submit additional details and we will try to assist you further.
