Hi my name is ***** ***** I'm trying to find out more about the problem that my mom's Viking gas oven is having the bigger of the two of us because it has double oven will not turn on only 4 will work but that did not work you turn the knob to any temperature besides boil and it just does nothing look in the other side and nothing happensJA: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue?Customer: Really just like I said you turn on the large oven to any temperature but the gas burner on the bottom that you can see through the service panel which had taken off does not turn on at all pre-heating parts glow plug but things don't even start to change yellow they just stay dark while the smaller of them immediately after a few seconds turn starts glowing orange and then few seconds later it comes up and starts to preheat like it's supposed to while the larger oven only does that on the boilerJA: OK got it.

I have a Maytag LSE 7806 GGE stacked washer/dryer. I'd like

My name is***** have a Maytag LSE 7806 GGE stacked washer/dryer. I'd like to know exactly how much hot water is used during a wash, so that I can figure out the impact on my hot water boiler. The manual says that a regular large cycle uses 136 liters of water. But how much of that is hot water? I'd like to know the answer for two cases: (1) A large "warm" cycle; and (2) A large "hot" cycle. I've always assumed that it is simply halved: the 136 liters indicates 68 liters of cold water for rinse, and 68 liters of water for the wash; if so, then, if it is a warm wash, it would use about 34 liters of hot water, and if it is a cold wash, 68 liters. That's an astounding amount of hot water to supply. Is this really the case? I'd like to pay someone to get a real answer, to know exactly how much hot water is used in each of the two cases (large hot regular load and large warm regular load).

When I try to light the oven the spark igniter is not

when I try to light the oven the spark igniter is not working, although the same spark ignitor lights the stove burners fine. although you can hear the igniter clicking or sparking the oven and broiler do not ignite. both have about 215 Ohms phones. I installed the spark igniter that came today from RepairClinic. But it did not fix anything. When attempting to start the oven, you can hear the gas come on and off and you can smell the gas, but there was no spark from the igniter. However when attempting to start the oven I do hear and see the igniters on the stove sparking. What do you suggest I do now to fix this problem.Optional Information:Brand: whirlpoolType of Appliance: Oven & RangeModel Number: WFG374LVQ 2

Have a Thermador C302ZS01, dual. Upper stopped heating, both broiler and convection elements. Bottom oven works fine. White dust all over inside. Blown convection element, "exploded". Replaced . Boiler element looks fine. Unit still not working, neither convection or broiler. Maybe something else blew (fuse??) when convection element failed?I am retired EE and own multimeter and comfortable with electronics
