Amana Oven - ignitor lights, burner starts heating, then entire unit powers off!
Posted 10 August 2009 - 09:02 AM
After about a minute (heat usually gets up to around 300 F), a "click" sound is heard and then the entire unit powers itself off! Ignitor goes dark, LED display goes dark, and about 3 seconds later the gas stops flowing (hissing stops).
Breaker does NOT trip, and the unit will turn itself back on (clock flashing on display) after a minute or so. HELP! Suggestions?

Look for some charred components in the controller

The Ignitor stays ON while the Gas is ON.
yes, does sounds like a flaky ERC, but check ACS3350 Technical Bulletin

I find no charred components whatsoever on either PCB of the controller that is installed presently.
There are four electrolytic capacitors: 3300 microF, 470 microF, another 470 microF, and a 100 microF. All look clean, but haven't checked any of them.

Apparently, as the oven would heat up, some heat lost through the back panel would cause a main power break at the wall outlet. I'm advising the customer to have an electrician replace the outlet and check the wiring in the wall.
