Please stand by while I look up your model number.
I've answered this 3 times. The light works.
Thank you Vince. I was with another customer. Sorry about the delay.
Okay, due to the complexity of these units it is going to take a while for me to provide instructions, screen shots from the manual, parts refrences, etc.
Or, if you are handy with repairs around the house I can upload the wire diagram and service manual for you to do the repair that way.
Please click here to download the manual
And click here for the schematic.
I am here to help you if you need it. These units can be a real pain sometimes. Dont be afraid to come back and ask questions.
Please let me know if you have any other concerns.If not please select a positive rating at this time. Doing so will not close your question, and after you rate my service you may ask any followup questions you like. All at no additional charge.
He basically downloaded a service manual. He didn't tell me how to fix my problem.
I gave you two options. To have me type it all up for you, or for me to provide you the manual. You chose to receive the manual. That is not poor service!
Do you want me to type it up for you (the diagnostics and repair procedures)?
FYI: I did not just download the manual from the internet. I downloaded the manual from the tech site which I happen to pay a large sum of money for the subscription to.
I will be happy to help you. Please allow me an hour to get it all together and type it up for you.
The ignitor to the griddle does get cherry red. I am not at home at the present and will not be able to check the bake ingitor until tomorrow.
If the ignitor works, then what could the problem be?
I will try to get back to you tomorrow.
I will try to do those things tomorrow. Then I will get back to you.
I will take ouut the plate to the oven tomorrow and inspect the ignitor. Have to work today and toniight.
The screws that hold the bake plate are in the front. You have to take the door off to take those screws out.
The 4 range burners do light properly.
The ignitor to the griddle works but it does not light.
The ignitor to the broiler works but it does not light.
I can ot tell about the oven ignitor without taking the door off.
It would not be logical that it is an ignitor problem, unless if one is out there is no gas flow to all. It seems there is no gas to the oven, broiler, and griddle.
To replace all the ignitors would cost $410 using your estimate for cost. And I am not sure that is the problem.
I appears the thermostat for the griddle is bad. The copper wire is broken. I have ordered the new thermostat, and got it yesterday. Any advice on replacing the thermostat?
Griddle: I took the griddle off and found that the thermostat (copper wire) was completely broken. However, the igniter glows and the burner lights. The igniter stays on, I assume that is a function of the thermostat, it must shut off the igniter after the burner gets hot. .
I have a new thermostat and plan to install it this week.
Broiler: Igniter glows but only shows 2.9-3.0 amps. It does not light
Oven: Igniter also shows only about 2.8-3.1 amps. It does not light.
I have new igniters for the broilers and oven. I have followed your instructions, but it seems there is a little more to it than the igniters, at least for the griddle.
Griddle: I have installed the new thermostat and the griddle burner now appears to work fine.
Oven: I have installed the new igniter, and it gets red hot, but the burner still does not light.
Broiler: Have not changed that igniter yet, since oven did not light after igniter replaced...plus I ran out of time last night.
So, The cooktop burners work fine, The griddle now works fine. The oven and Broiler will not light.
You were correct. I checked the amps on all of the ignitors, and they were all low( less than 3 amps.). My mistake after replacing the ignitors was not waiting longe enough to see if the bake would light. It takes about a minute. I have replaced all three now: the griddle, the bake/oven, and the broiler ignitors. They all seem to work properly now.
I will send the dual gas safety valve back, as the original seems to be working fine.
So I am nearly done, but have had difficulty getting the door back in. I have replaced the hinges, but in trying to get the door back in have damaged the hinge supports. So I have ordered new hinge supports. Replacing the door seems to be little tricky. I have looked at a couple of videos, but am worried I might damage the new hinge supports or hinges themselves when I try again. Any suggestions?
