Oven and Broiler spark ignition not working

Recommended Posts

JohnF88

Hello,

I have an Amana agr5630bdb1 oven and for some reason the oven and broiler's spark ignition does not activate. The stove top burners ignite without any issues. The gas is on and the oven is only about 4 years old.  I ran a diagnostic on the display and it did not give me a code. I believe it read CLR which according to the manual was ok. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

 

Thanks!!!

Your oven uses a DSI (dirrect spark ignition) board WPW10511278 to spark the oven, it will go into a safe mode if. It detectes error. Try reseting unit first.

 If you know disagnostics you can try to manually activate bake or broil from the control.

 If not functioning you need to see if the signal. From the main control is getting to  the DSI board if not bad board if it is then likely a bad dsi board or  other spark  issue.

the main board fails frequently on these models a software glitch that CAUSES THE UNIT TO FAIL AFTER ABOUT 2 -3 YEARS without further test i would guess main control

Thanks for the input. I was thinking it would be one of those parts I just wasn't sure which one. The main control board sounds right especially if this model is known to have issues with it. I might just cut my losses and upgrade to a more reliable brand. I really appreciate the help!!

Need to check the gas safety valve also, if either bake or broil circuit in gas valve is open neither will work - If I remember correctly you will get one or two clicks and it will then stop clicking and never light the burner.

  If you want a new range fine, nothing wrong with that. But dont do it because of only this.

I have seen similar problems in most every brand.  Includeing a $12,000 thermador (2 boards, 1 dial 1 encoder in less than 5 years)

I would put amana as a fairly good brand. You will not get much different. Unless you go  electronic less, or some expenseive ones.

lg whirlpool, ge, samsung, frigidaire are all about  same quality or less.

 

american range, and some DCS (dynaminc cooking systems or fisher and paykel professional). No electronics whatsoever, should last 20 years or more.
