Hello everybody. I have a Kitchenaid Superba model number KGRT607HBS6 oven that stopped working recently. Burners work perfectly. The gas certainly comes on and I can smell it, just it will not heat up. The readout gives no indication of any trouble, simply stays on "Lo". I have read a number of threads describing similar situations. My question is do I locate the ignitor terminals in side the back access panel? 2. If I have the correct voltage there this means the ignitor is bad? If no voltage there what might be the next item to check?

The closest part number I found for ignitor is 910020.


Thank you very kindly.

Hi,

Yes, check for 120 volts with a volt meter at your oven igniter while the oven is on. If you have 120 volts at the oven igniter and the oven igniter doesn't glow orange, then yes the oven igniter is bad.

Here's the oven igniter glow bar for your model, in case you need to order it:
WP9782065 Oven burner igniter



The oven igniter terminals are under the oven in the very back, so you'll need to remove your storage drawer and get a flashlight and put your meter leads on the terminal ends of your oven igniter.

There are 4 terminals attached to a valve thing in the back of the drawer area. The one single thickest shielded terminal does provide 120+ volts only when oven is turned on when removed from the terminal and checked with the meter. No voltage is detected anywhere else as if no voltage is passing thru this valve thing. With oven off no voltage is detectable anywhere in this area. Does this indicate a bad ignitor?

Yes, that indicates you have a bad oven igniter glow bar.

Just ordered the part up. We'll see how it goes when it gets here. Is there anything I would benefit from knowing before I start this part exchange? Thanks.

Not in particular, its pretty much cut & dry when you change it, just make down where the wires go on the old one and put them the same on the new one.

Hello everyone. I have a Kitchenaid Superba model number KGRT607HBS6 oven that stopped working recently aswell. Burners work perfectly now that we have changed the jets for all four. The "broil" function works but the "oven" function on convection and non-convection just won't heat up. The readout gives no indication of any trouble, simply stays on "Lo" and the ignitor glows orange so it's not that. Can anyone help?

We have changed from a natural gas source to bottled gas so i'm just wondering should the technician have changed the jets for the broil and the oven. The size of the jet on the broil currently is "0550" can anyone tell me if they should be changed and where i can get the correct jets because i now live in ireland? could this also be trouble with the oven?

Now is the voltage in Ireland 120 volts or 240 volts?

Did the range get moved to Ireland from the USA?

Now the oven igniter can glow and still be bad, not allowing the gas valve to open. Read here:
Gas Ranges, ignition problems, glow coils, spark modules, fault codes, converting to propane, Maytag, Frigidaire, GE, Kenmore, Amana

Now when you convert a range from natural to LP gas the tech. should of turned the oven gas valve orifice.

Read #4 here:

The voltage in Ireland is commonly 240V but we have both 240V and 120V via a transformer. The range is connected to the 120V.

Yes, we moved the range from the USA to Ireland.

We will give this information to our technician and get back to you if the problem is resolved.

Thanks a lot Jake!
