Oven Igniter - Part # 3377 Mfg Part # 12400035

Oven Igniter

RepairClinic Item # 3377

As the oven igniter weakens over time, it will take longer for the gas valve to open. If there is an oven temperature problem, 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. An oven temperature problem is usually easy to correct.

Oven Control Board

RepairClinic Item # 1289

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 correctly 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 might have failed electrically but a multi meter and the wiring diagram of the oven will be needed to determine that.
