Hello, I have an GOP476SLP LPG gas oven. The ignitiors started pplaying up after one year of operation. That is when we turned the oven on the ignitors would periodically ignite sometimes and then sometimes it would sit there and do nothing. So we keep turning the oven on and off until the ignitors started to work again. Now after two years the ignitors simply can't work and we now have not got a oven to use. Please give us a sloution to this problem. Thanks. Paul Bower, Sydney Australia.
Hi Paul and thank you for your question,How old is the oven now please? Do you still need help with this inquiry?
The Westinghouse GOP476SLP LPG gas oven is 2 years and 6 months old and hardly used. It started problems at 1 year and 2 months old. It still looks brand new as it has hardly been used. The inside is spotless and has not been cleaned yet.
When you turn the oven/grill switch on then the function switch to "fan bake" you would normally hear/see the ignitors go click, click, cliick then the gas would ignite. Slowly but surely when you turned the function switch to "fan bake" then the ignitors would randomly turn on. That is, you would have to turn the function switch to "fan bake" back and forwards until the ignitors would go on. Now the ignitors don't work at all and we can't light the gas manually. I am a telecommunications technician for 30 years and can understand technical information and electronic components.
The controller in the oven is faulty, or the switch that switches the oven between different modes is faulty.One or the other.You could have had this fixed by Westinghouse in the 2 year warranty period for free?As far as working on a gas oven goes, I cant advise you on a technical basis. You have to be qualified by law to do these repairs, otherwise if you burn the house down, or get injured, there is no coverage by the insurance companies and also you will be criminally liable etc..You can however, replace the controller on your own account and work on the electrical side of things. So you will need to isolate the power at the power box, remove the oven from the housing and sit it on something so you can get into the electrics and change over the controller etc..For a quote and supply on the part:

Thank you very much. Yes we should have chased up the warranty. Bing Lee in Rouse Hill told us we only had 1 year warranty and then we found out that we had 2 years. Not Happy! When you say controller are you refering to the IGNITOR board. The IGNITOR board connects in between the function switch and the actual ignitors. I have attached photo below:
Yes, that is where I would be starting*
