Customer Question
We have a whirlpool...

We have a whirlpool gold oven and it's not heating up. Just used it this morning and it was fine. Burners on the stove work.

Contractor's Assistant: Can you guesstimate how old your Whirlpool is? And just to clarify, what's the exact model?

GW397LXUQ4

Contractor's Assistant: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?

Yes

Contractor's Assistant: Anything else we should know to help you best?

Just hoping it's something simple like a pilot light?

can you ignite the gas without the igniter?
Appliance Technician: Appliance Guru, Owner and Technician replied 8 months ago

No but you could remove the broil ignitor and install it for the bake ignitor they are the same...other than that there is no way to manually light it.
