Oven Igniter - Part # 2494 Mfg Part # WB13K21

Oven Igniter

RepairClinic Item # 2494

As the oven igniter weakens over time, it will take longer for the gas valve to open. If the oven doesn't bake evenly, it may be that the oven igniter isn't opening the gas valve when it should. This will cause the oven to cool down more than it should before the burner reignites. The oven temperature should not cool by more than 40 degrees before the oven igniter relights the burner.

Oven Control Board - Part # 1086191 Mfg Part # WB27T10469

Oven Control Board

RepairClinic Item # 1086191

The oven control board has a set of relays that turn on and off power to the bake and broil circuits according to the customer settings and sensor input. If the oven won't heat the problem is usually with the heating components. However, if the oven control board is bad, it might not send voltage to the heating components. To determine why the oven won't heat, first test the simpler components in the circuit. The oven control board can't be tested easily and will have to be replaced if it is defective.

Oven Thermostat - Part # 251863 Mfg Part # WB20K8

Oven Thermostat

RepairClinic Item # 251863

The oven thermostat has a thin copper tube attached to a slightly thicker tube which sticks into the oven. Inside this tube is a type of hydraulic fluid. As the temperature in the oven rises the fluid expands which puts pressure on a small activator inside the thermostat and shuts off the heat. As the oven cools, the pressure reduces and the activator allows the oven to heat. If the oven doesn't bake evenly it could be that the thermostat activator is broken, or that the calibration has changed. The solution is to replace the oven thermostat.
