Hello. Apparently, I don't understand how this works. I thought I
posted this message already, but I don't see it. Anyway, the problem
is with a Whirlpool gas range, model # SF310PEAW0. The oven isn't
lighting. We took the front panel off (under the top, behind the
knobs) and played around with the wires that are attached to a thing
(don't know what else to call it) behind the oven control knob. There
are 2 wires, one yellow, one black, and the heavy wire that goes
directly into the oven connected to this piece. AFter that, it started
working again briefly, but now it is completely dead. The burners are
getting gas, so I suppose the problem is electrical, perhaps the
ignition or something? Can anyone identify this problem or the part(s)
that might need to be replaced? Thank you!
Thanks for the reply. Yes, oven did resume working briefly, but now it
is very dead. I don't even know what you mean by timer controls. This
is a very basic model and probably older. It's not self-cleaning and
has a digital clock, and that's about it. It could be igniter, or
possibly the selector switch? Would that produce the same problem?
We rent and our landlord got this from his sister. The manual no
longer exists. He is willing to fix it, but when he tried to find a
part, and I'm not so sure he even knows which part it is, he was told
he would need the manual. I have a feeling it may not even be worth
repairing. He can probably get a used one for less hassle. Thanks
again Ed for your input.

If the glow coil is not glowing it can be ohmed for continuity....or
check for proper power to the glow coil ( 110-120 volts AC ) and if
the glow coil is getting power but no go the glow coil it self is bad.
The glow coil *can* glow redish and still be bad!! If the ignitor is
not getting power, bad control, bad wire would be suspect.
Oven igniter kit for your range.
