Unhappy Oven does not stay lit
Model Number: KGSS907SSS   Brand: Kitchen Aid   Age: 5 - 10 years   

Appliance Parts from AppliancePartPros.com


Hey everyone!

I have a Kitchen Aid Model: KGSK901SSS Oven

The burners light, and stay on, but when I turn the oven on, it turns on for a few seconds then turns off. And to be able to have it ignite again I have to unplug it from the wall, turn off the safety valve, turn the valve back on, then plug it into the wall. Then most of the time it will ignite again for just a few seconds before turning off. I bought a new Safety valve(#9763716), and a Spark module (#W10331686), installed and still having the same problem.

Please help!

Thank you for anyone taking your time to read this post.

Hi.

Most likely the problem is that the ignitor doesn't sense the flame.
You can try:
- realign the ignitor strictly parallel the burner holes.
- enlarge the 8 pilot holes by one drill bid size.
If that not going to help - replace the ignitor and the burner.

The burner Part number: 9760228

Part number: 9760228


The ignitor Part number: 9760229

Part number: 9760229


Here are the breakdown diagrams and Replacement parts for Whirlpool KGSS907SSS01 30" Freestanding GAS OVEN CONVECTION | AppliancePartsPros.com

Thank you. Post the results.

Simon.

Thank you for the advice and things to try. I drilled out the holes on the burner, and made sure the ignitors were aligned

below are pictures of the 2 ignitors, and the grounding wire I just installed to the spark module

It still does the same thing.

I unplugged the thermometer from the back, and plugged it back in, and now the oven stays on for approximately 20-30 seconds before turning off.(longer, but still turns off every time)

the burners were completely clear and clean, nothing blocking any of the holes.

Do you have any other ideas?

Thank you again for your help.

Hi Logan,

I'm willing to help you too but as the first step, I would like to verify the model number of the range because the information you posted is confusing.

On the top it says: "KGSS907SSS" while in the text it says: "KGSK901SSS". In the first case it's "907", in the second it's "901", and in both the end of the model number is missing.

Gene.

Which part did you call "the thermometer"?

Are you sure the new refurbished spark module is good?

Make sure the power cord is properly connected to the range (hot to hot and neutral to neutral), the power outlet is properly grounded and the power cord ground wire is properly connected to the range.

Check the wire between the bake igniter and the spark module.

If it would no help, replace the bake burner and the igniter.

- The Bake burner Part number: 9760228

Part number: 9760228



- The igniter Part number: 9760229

Part number: 9760229

I took the ignitors and burner into a repair shop just to have them "inspect" them for free, they said the ignitors both had continuity (which I had tested and knew before I went in) but always nice to have a second person confirm it. and also said that the burner was completely clear and clean.

Every wire looks to be covered, sealed, and no loose wires. Everything is grounded and has a solid connection.

The company I bought the Spark Module from told me it was tested and guaranteed that it works. So I re connected my old(the original) spark module and it still did the same exact thing(so I am thinking the issue is not the board). The company said they would give me a full refund, so I plan on sending the board back.

If it would help, I could take a video of what happens.(tomorrow afternoon)

I just now took a break from typing before hitting post to clean the spark electrode very well with emery cloth and it's pretty dang shiny and new looking. Still does the same thing, turns on for 5-30 seconds, then turns off. To work again it must be unplugged from the wall and plugged back in.

-Logan


Also the burner is 100% clean and clear of any "foreign junk"

1. You did not answer this question yet.

2. Did you check it?

Sorry, Yes the power cord is properly connected and grounded, all wires seem to be connected properly( my father is an electrician and has been trying to help me, not that it means too much but does help some)

It may be called the temperature sensor? cant find the exact part online right now. But when I found it a few days ago, it said it should read 1000-1100 ohms to be working properly(which it does) so I do not think that has anything to do with it. may have just been random that it stayed on longer after unplugging it and re connecting it to make sure the connection was solid.

Logan,

The problem you described had been known for ovens with Direct Spark Ignition for many years. In most cases it was caused by: the spark module was not sufficiently grounded or misplaced the oven igniter bracket.

You have nothing to loose if you order the burner and the igniter from APP to give it a try. You can return any parts even if it was installed.

Gene.
