The gas value open and works, the electronic ignition click three times but the oven does light. when you open the door you can smell gas.
For model number WFG510S0AB2
Hi Alton, Thank you for your inquiry. It sounds like you may need to replace your ignitor. I would suggest testing it with a multi-meter. Most of the time when you are having that issue, it is your ignitor that is the problem. However it is always best to double check. I hope that helps. Good luck with your repair!

The oven will preheat and when it is time to keep hot you can here the click of it trying to reheat and some times it will start and some times not.
For model number SF367LXSB0
Hi John, Thank you for your inquiry. The bake igniter is one part that fixes the issue the majority of the time, but you will also have to check the The surface burner spark igniters, the gas valve, the spark module, the broil igniter and the oven sensor. I hope this helps. Thank you and have a great day!

The top burners work fine, but the problem is with oven. I enter bake on the pad pad for 5 minutes and the oven doesn't turn on. I hear the action of the igniter clicking, but it doesn't turn on and the gas comes out. When the broiler is turned on I can see the the igniter spark the gas causing it to work properly. I removed the bottom pan and heat shield in order to check if the igniter on the bottom tube was sparking and nothing was happening. What are your suggestion?

I'm guessing i need the bake igniter but i want to make sure before i purchase the part. When i set my oven to bake i can here the clicking sound and then after that i get gas smell. Should i be looking at something else other than that? Should i test the broil feature as well?
For model number AMANA MOD#AGR5630BDS1
Hello Gisela, thank you for your question. It sounds like the issue is with the bake igniter. If you are able to use the "broil" function as usual but the "bake" function is clicking, without lighting we would recommend replacing the bake igniter only. I hope this helps!

The oven works intermittently. Most of the time it heats up to the desired temperature and maintains temperature. Also, if desired temperature is increased, it will re-ignite and heat to desired temp and maintain temperature. However, there are times when the oven does not heat up or maintain desired temperature... please help.
For model number SF362LXSB0
Hi Shawn, Thank you for your question. If the oven is not heating correctly, then the issue is likely with the oven sensor, sometimes called the oven thermostat, and you will need to check it with a multimeter. When testing the sensor with a multimeter, the sensor should be tested at room temperature. You will need to measure the resistance between the two prongs at the end of the sensor connector. Replace the oven sensor if the reading is less than 900 Ohms or more than 1200 Ohms. I hope this helps. Thank you and have a great day!

How do you check to see if the igniter is broken?
For model number WFG374LVS1
Hi Connie, Thank you for the question.You can test the igniter for continuity or test for 120 VAC to the igniter while the control is set for Bake. You will need a Multi Meter to test the igniter. hope this helps!

My oven will preheat to the desired temperature but then beeps continuously and shuts off or it gives me an error code of F2E0. I would press cancel and restart it and it would work fine but now it just clicks to start and I smell gas. Do I need the bake igniter?
For model number WFG374LVB1
Hello Cheryl, Thanks for your question. With error code F2E0, check the connection between the touch pad (keypad) and control board (clock) to make sure it is secure. Select the 'cancel' function and wait 60 seconds. If error code reappears then replace the touch pad. The control board part number is PS11754598. With regards to the gas smell, it can be worthwhile to check both the igniter and the burner valve to see if there are any issues with either. I hope this helps.

My oven will heat but it takes twice as long to reach my desired temp. My oven peeps and tells me its ready but my thermometer says a different story. If i set it to 400 it will peep around 200 saying its ready. Do I need a new igniter?
For model number GS475Lems1
Hello Carrie, Thank you for the question. I suggest testing the Oven Sensor, PartSelect Number PS11749737. Testing the temperature sensor probe on your oven is easy. With the sensor at room temperature, measure the resistance between the two prongs at the end of the sensor connector. The resistance of the sensor should read approximately 1080 – 1090 ohms at room temperature. Hope this helps!

    Bake burner did not ignite. Had gas flow, igniter clicked but there was no ignition. Ordered iginiter.
    I was able to perform this repair without removing the oven door. Removed cooking racks (2) Removed oven bottom (2 screws), removed flame spreader (2 screws). removed igniter (2 screws - used a 5/16 hex socket wrench). On this model range the lower screw on the igniter is on an angle (about 45 degrees) and very close to the heat reflector pan; patience and perseverance was required to remove it. - do not know if there is a special tool that would help making removal of this screw easier. If it wasn't for this one screw, the repair should take about 15-20 minutes. Replacement of the igniter solved the ignition problem.

    Igniter stopped sparking.
    I ordered the exact replacement igniter through the website. I removed the oven bottom plate and the flame spreader to gain access to the igniter/burner assembly. I removed the burner from the oven to access the mounting bolts for the igniter. I replaced the assembly into the oven and reconnected the igniter wire and it was set!

    Oven would not ignite for BAKE. Gas would come on and igniter would "click" twice, then when burner did not light up gas went off.
    Bought new igniter.
    Pulled stove from wall and turned off gas and disconnected power cord.
    Removed oven racks.
    Removed oven floor.
    Removed heat shield/dissipater thing.
    Removed 2 screws holding igniter to gas burner tube.
    Disconnected the wire (this was harder than expected because igniter had only a few inches slack in the wires), took off back to try to find better access to wires, no help there, door was not easily removable so difficult to reach in with 2 hands to pull wires apart, eventually I got it.
    Connected new wires.
    Replaced igniter to feeder tube with 2 screws.
    Plugged back in, turned gas back on and tested.
    Reassembled heat shield thing, oven floor, racks.
    Done.
