Whirlpool Range Model #WFG361LVS

12 posts in this topic

Oven Bake is intermittent.

It has an electrode spark ignition.

Sometimes it sparks once and lights right up. The next time it won't.

Is there anything else that consistently fires this ignitor?

Or does it just sound like a tired igniter?

Sorry, but you're way off the mark here. This oven DOES have an electrode igniter in the oven.

Check this out...

That's the part that lights the oven Bake.

Maybe you've not seen this before, they're not what I usually see either.

1) tech sheet depends on missing last digit of model number

Any Household new wiring or connections ?

Why replace the lower burner and electrode?

Electrode is available separately.

REG US

This unit has worked fine where it is. Nothing changed. No electrical work done. Broiler works fine. Surface units work fine.

The burners are redesigned - better alignment to ignitor

Visually check the stregth of the broil spark as you turn the oven on for bake (both spark at the same time). Symptoms described above could indicate a bad (weak) spark module.
