Just have to vent a minute while on hold with Whirlpool. Whipped up a bunch of batter for a large baby shower cake and discovered my oven isn't working!!! I think the piolet light may be out. WHY??? I've been on hold now for more than 10 minutes. How long can I let the batter sit before I need to throw it out? I'm sticking it in the frig now. Sigh.

Sorry about the oven! What a bummer...

About the batter, I have kept batter in the fridge for up to 24 hours and baked it without any problems.

I read somewhere (Cake Bible maybe?) that if you are holding batter you should refrigerate it, but in the pans it will be baked in. I canât remember the exact reason why, though.

Good luck with the oven!

Did you check to see if it's out? Is it an electronic igniter?

Well, Whrilpool thinks it's the electronic ignition switch. I can light it manually but then for some reason the gas shuts off. Good thing this cake is for an understanding friend and not a paying client!

My Maytag did the same thing. Try repairclinic.com they have a trouble shooting guide and a how to section. I ordered one for my oven, had it in two days (they ship same day) and it cost me about $25. Good luck! Hope this helps. That site has saved me so much money on repairing appliances myself verses hiring someone or replacing them.

No, I am in no was affiliated with them. icon_wink.gif

I think because the batter kind of hardens a little on top...I have also put batter in the fridge for a few hours (I made too much and my oven was full, then I had to make dinner!) and it worked out fine. I let it sit in the room for about 10 minutes to get the chill off of it...
