Question Kitchen Aid Gas Range will not light
Model Number: KGSA906PSS01   Brand: Kitchen Aid   Age: 1 - 5 years   

Appliance Parts from AppliancePartPros.com


Hi,

My friend has a Kitchen Aid KGSA906PSS01. The gas burners on the stove and the convection fan and electric heating element in the oven work fine, but the oven gas won't work.

He replaced the spark module and the ignitor. Next we will check the gas valve and the ERC. There are no error codes. Is there a way to do a self-test as with other appliances? Any other ideas?

Thanks.

One of the most common problems with Direct Spark Ignition operating system is a bad gas valve/regulator. You can check it as instructed in the Tech sheet (page 4).

- The gas valve/regulator Part number: AP3886450

Part number: AP3886450

Thanks Gene. I tested the resistance of the gas valve terminals as described on page 4 of the tech manual and I got a good reading on one but nothing on the other, so as the note states, if one is bad then neither with operate. Since we are not getting an error code, would you agree that the gas valve probably needs to be replaced?

As you can see from the tech sheet, there are no any failure/error codes for the gas valve/regulator.

Based on your test results, this part is the culprit.

Gene,

Thanks for the reassurance. Can to tell me where to find instructions on how to replace the valve, or is it pretty straight forward?

Thanks again.
Frank

Frank,

If you know how to handle a simple tools, this part is not too difficult to replace yourself.

Remove the bottom drawer, pull the range out of the wall, shut off the gas to the range, unplug the power cord and disconnect the gas line. You'll see what to do next.

Gene.

Thumbs up Gene, thanks for the help...it worked!

Sorry it's taken a while to get back to you, but thanks the help, it worked. We replaced the valve in about 5 minutes, piece of cake. The oven is back up and running.

Thanks again!
