Default Whirlpool Oven won't heat up
Model Number: SF362LXSQ   Brand: Whirlpool   Age: 1 - 5 years   

Appliance Parts from AppliancePartPros.com


I have a Whirlpool gas ovev (mod# SF362LXSQ) that is just under 2 years old that the oven and broiler have stopped working. The stove burners work fine.

When you try and start the oven, you hear several "clicks" and then nothing. When it did work it would "click" then you would hear a rush a gas and the oven would heat up.

All power and controls on the panel seem to be working fine.

When we first moved into our house 5 years ago it came with a Kenmore oven that was 3 years old and eventally started doing the same thing. A repair man said something about a control panel being the problem and it was more economical to replace the oven then just repair the old one. Now we seem to be having the same problem with the new one.

Has any one heard of this being a common problem and what are some ideas to try and fix it.

Thanks for any help
Jim S

After looking around on the web a lot of people seem to think this could be the ignitor. I have removed the ignitor, but is there any way to test it and see if that is the problem?

Thanks
Jim

If your oven has a bake and a broil burner it's not very common for both ignitors to fail at the same time I would lean more to trouble shooting the board

Hi Jim,

Remove the bottom drawer. Locate the gas valve/regulator with three electrical solenoids terminals on the back of the range. The middle terminal is Common, the upper terminal is Broil and the bottom terminal is Bake. Mark all wires and remove them from the terminals. Check between each solenoid for 216 Ohms resistance (Broil to Common and Bake to Common). If one of the solenoid is defective, neither one will operate and the gas valve/regulator has to be replaced.

- The part number for the gas valve/regulator is AP3866825

If there is nothing wrong, post the results and we'll proceed with further diagnosis.

Gene.

Gene,

I did find the schematics and saw that about the solenoid. What do I use to test the resistance. I know how to replace parts, but not to handy in testing electrical stuff.

thanks

Jim,

You have to have a simple multimeter. You can find the complete instructions in one of our previous posts: How To Check Continuity With Ohmmeter

Thanks Gene. One of the guys I work with has a multimeter. I will check the regulator tommorow and see if that is the problem. I'll let you know what I find.
