I am hoping the great Samurai can shed some light on my problem and lead me to the true path.

My friend's oven recently started missbehaving, it is an 8 year-old MC CGS3760ADW that has otherwise been a reliable cooker. The top burners all work fine, it is the oven that is giving us fits. No error codes are present.

When we turn it on to bake, I can see the yellow glow of the ignitor and hear gas flowing. It will light and eventually (much longer time than normal) heat up to be able to be used. No bad gas smell, but a constant soft "popping" noise is heard. It seems like the gas may be lit, then not lit, then lit again. It seems worse when it is first turned on.

She called a repair place and the technician came over yesterday and pulled out the bottom of the oven. He told her that the valve was malfunctioning, but didn't really do any sort of diagnostics for his $80. fee. He heard the exact same description of the problem she told the dispatcher, and wouldn't have even looked into the unit at all if she didn't pressure him. (good thing for him I wan't over there).

I have read the forum, seen lot's of ignitor problems, and wonder how he reached this vague diagnosis  of valve problem and advice to buy a new range? Seems like he was just lazy, as even if it was the valve, that is not a terribly expensive part compared to a new appliance.

Oh Samurai, can you give me some suggestions as to how I can narrow down this problem and hopefully do the repairs? I am fully capable of taking direction, and have done a lot of other repairs on other appliances over the years.

I await your wisdom and guidance.... and will drink a very hoppy Stone IPA in the mean time.

Greetings Jr! You have just experienced a service call at the hands of the all to common Jive turkey repairman or parts changing monkey- sorry about that! But alas, you are on the right path now. What we have here is a classic case of a weak ignitor.

to receive your repair part and the wife's eternal, if not biblical, gratitude! (tell her I said so...LOL).

Dear Kirtius,

I ordered the new ignitor, moved the one down from the broiler temporarily, and got the new part installed with one day to Thanksgiving to spare! Better yet, my gal got her $80.00 back in full from the "repair" company -- with an admission from the boss that the technician should have known this from the get go and an apology.

So the jive turkey was defeated, thanks to you Kirtius, and the real turkey was eaten with great pleasure and washed down by many hoppy beers.

Thanks for confirming my suspicions,

Jr
