I have a 14 Year old Amana Gas Stove which we take very good care of our appliances.
I have replaced in the last year the Oven Igniter (the one that heats the over to temperature) because it was not getting past 200 Degrees.
Recently we noticed that it is not heating to temperature it heats up because the gas kicks on and I know the oven igniter is working properly but i did some research and I was told that even though it says its been preheated and the beep goes off its about 150 - 200 degrees off from where it should be. With that information I replaced the temperature probe and apparently that has not fixed the issue. I have checked the temperature with a brand new oven thermometer and it is indeed about that temperature delta.
My wife says the broiler is not working at all, we are trying to cook some chicken in the oven (as noted earlier its not hitting the accurate temperature so we are on 450 and its showing 300, since this oven does have a broiler igniter could it be the broiler igniter?
Does the broiler play a part in getting an oven to temperature?
There are three igniters in the stove, the bake igniter, oven igniter and a broil igniter.
Any thoughts? I do not want to keep throwing parts at the problem but hoping to eliminate one or the other because the broiler is not firing im guessing its the broil igniter.
Help would be greatly appreciated
