January 19, 2020
The control panel on my gas range has slowly stopped working. First it was just the 0, but now only the 1, 4 and 7 buttons work (all the other buttons work, like bake etc, just not the numbers other than 1 4 and 7, so i can’t set a baking temp). Can i do something to fix this or do i need to replace the entire panel? Thanks!

For model number GW397LXUS06
PartSelect logo
Hi Sandra, Thank you for your question. The natural gas orifices are sold with the orifice holders. The part number listed under your model number for the orifice holder used for both the left front and the right rear is PS11754354. The part number listed for the right front orifice holder is PS11754353. The part number listed for the left rear orifice holder is PS11754355. If you would like to place an order for them, you may order them either online or by calling our customer service line and anyone will be happy to assist you. To convert your oven from natural gas to propane you will need to adjust the plastic plug on the cap of the regulator. Take a wrench and unscrew the cap. Under the cap, you will find a plug. The plug will have the gas type molded into it. Switch it back to natural gas. Check your owner's manual for specific instructions. We hope this helps! Good luck with the repair!

Oven wouldn’t heat up properly
My oven has two igniters so I needed to determine which one was the problem.

Using the amp/multi meter I tested the connection between the igniters and the valve, with the oven turned on, to find the bad igniter. Depending on the model of stove you have, the amp reading you need for a properly functioning igniter will vary. My lower igniter read 2.7 amps with a rated amp between 3.3 and 3.6. So that was the culprit.

Replacing the igniter was easy. Two screws and a wire connected with a plug. I was able to do the diagnosis and unplug the wire without pulling the oven out. I pulled the drawer out and removed the two screws in a cover behind where the drawer was. You may not be so lucky…I have long arms.

I found removing the oven door made it easier to reach the igniter itself. To remove the door just open it slightly and pull up, it should come off easy…and replace in opposite manner.

Keep track of your screws and put it back together the way you found it except for the igniter that is.

Anyone with moderate technical skill could easily do this repair. The diagnosis is the hard part. I estimate I saved about $200 doing it myself.

Good luck.

F1 code - gas over would not heat.
Repair tech checked oven and said the control panel was bad and needed to be replaced. The new control panel would cost over $450.00! I found that the oven sensor was bad and replaced it for $30.00. The old oven sensor had failed following a self cleaning cycle. I found that the wires coming out of it were burnt.

Replacing the oven sensor was very easy. I removed the back panels 6 screws to gain access to the sensor's connection. I then removed the 2 screw that hold the sensor in place inside the oven and pulled the old sensor out through the oven. I reversed this process to place the new sensor in the oven.

mice had made nests in the insulation wrap in the range
I numbered every part. ex: 1 L., for first part removed left side. I used a magic marker to circle the holes and wrote the number of screws used on the part, set the srews in a separete place, so that I new where these screws went to. The cleanup was pretty time consuming, but I was able to keep my stove, when every repairman I called to fix my stove told me I was better off buying a new stove. ($600.00 stove 2 years old)Please Note: The insulation blanket needed for the entire stove is two pieces, the sides and top are one part # and the bottom and back, are another part #. I did not know this. I just purchased the top and sides. I got lucky, the back and bottom were still in good shape. So I guess I should have read the description of the part more carefully to see what it covers, before I ordered it. It took two people two hours to do the work, it was really nice to have an extra set of eyes, to remember what direction pieces of metal from the stove went. I would do it all over in a heart beat instead of buying a new stove.
