Thread: Whirlpool range having oven issue

    Whirlpool range having oven issue

    Model Number: WFG320MOBWO
    Brand: Whirlpool
    Age: 1-5 years

    Hi. I have a 3 year old Whirlpool gas range that has an oven problem. The last 3 times we've used it we went to preheat and the gas would not ignite until, oddly enough, we lit one of the stovetop burners. THEN, it brings itself to temperature.

    We have had disagreements as to whether it tries to maintain temperature. It seems that's hit or miss, sometimes it does, sometimes it doesn't, and in using it today I am starting to believe that keeping temperature, like deciding to get to temperature, is depending on one of the stovetop burners being on.

    How odd is that, and does anyone know what the problem is?

    Thanks so much in advance!

    Was a solution found for this problem? I have the same issue. For the oven to work a stove burner has to be on.

    Thanks
