Kitchenaid KGRS505Xss02 oven issues

Recommended Posts

My two - oven KitchenAid (15yrs old)  gas broiler lites then goes out, and neither oven heats.  bottom ignitor does not heat as far as  I can tell.   Just happened two days ago.  has worked fine for many years.   I've replaced a couple of the stovetop burners/valves so am somewhat familiar with the unit.  One of your other discussions describes gas valve tests, and control board tests.  Is this where I should start, the other discussion was a Kitchenaid KGSS907sss01, so would the testing procedure be similar.    Thanks.  John O

Ignitors are likely suspects. We check amp draw to be within specification. Typically above 3.0 amps will open valve anything less and you have a failing ignitor.

If no amp draw then test same circuit for 120VAC. If present bad ignitor if not bad board.

I have taken apart the back of the stove and the  main gas safety valve splits off to a sub valve assembly from which come the two gas lines, and respective wiring to the ignitors.    Also a rigid pipe that serves the bottom oven.  The left hand set of wires shows +-210 Ohms, (the ignitor to the top oven)  and the right side set show 0.    You spoke of amp test on the ignitors, just test the wires for amps?  I can send a pic, but I need to reduce the file size.   it is presently 5MB  will send later.  thx

I usually access ignitors from inside oven. Yep clamp amp meter to an ignitor wire. Turn to bake and watch amp draw. If it does not go above 3.0 amps it’s a weak ignitor.
