Oven only preheats with door open
Model Number: 65575012 Brand:
5 - 10 years
My oven will ignite fine the first time. During preheating it always turns off then will start clicking a few times but never ignites. If I hear the clicking and open the door a few minutes it will ignite and finish preheating. I only need to leave the door open until it seems to get hot enough (5 minutes or so ) .
Even after it is preheated I sometimes will get the clicking and if I open the door it ignites and then is fine. Sometimes it will ignite without the door being open and doesn't do the clicking.
I bought the stove but was not able to use the oven until long after the warranty ran out and this has always been the problem. Just recently it started turning off after the preheating time and I no longer can cook at all without it turning off a few times. Before it was just during the preheating now it is the preheating and baking time. multiple times. It has never preheated without the door needing to be open once. Why does the oven door being open stop the clicking and allows it to finish preheating and not if the door is closed? The broiler seems to work fine. Can someone please tell me what is wrong with it? Thank you
