Oven takes too long to start or not at all


is this electric or gas? if it is gas and a newer model it has an ignitor that heats up that will then ignite the gas burner, the ignitor is bad or you may need to inspect and clean the gas ports on the burner as they can get cloged up over time, try the inspection and cleaning first. If it doesnt appear to be cloged then turn on the oven and watch the ignitor, if it doesnt heat up to be white hot then it is bad or going bad and should be replaced. if it is electric check to see if the heating element is working by turning the oven on and watch for it to glow red hot, if it doesnt then it will need to be replaced.

Oven does not ignite broiler does ignite burners do ignite


the ignitor should pull 2.8 amps or more. it can lite but not release gas. just beacuse it is glowing doesnt mean its good. check amp draw w/ meter if less than 2.8 amps. change it out. if doesnt glow or draw any amps. check to be sure have 120v. then change ignitor.

Igniter comes on but gas won't light


It should glow almost a bright white. If its just an orange glow then replace the ignitor. Its probably just weak. If its weak it will not allow enough current to flow through it to open the gas valve. Good luck _MJ_

I replaced what I thought was a bad igniter.But still had no glow from new igniter. Must be something else.Where do I go from here?


Hello there: The oven bake burner and ignition components are located beneath the oven cavity. In most cases the oven bottom panel can be removed for access (check your owner's manual) but on some models the oven burner has to be accessed from below in the warming or broiler drawer area. If accessing from the top, a 'flame spreader' (flat metal plate) above the burner may also need to be removed to see the burner itself.Many ovens use a single oven burner in which case they only have a single gas valve and ignitor. The same burner is used for both bake and broil functions, the broil usually being in the drawer area below the oven. Higher-end models may have a separate bake and broil burner. On such a system there will be two ignitors, one for each burner. They may also employ a 'dual' gas valve (see illustration above) instead of using a separate valve for each burner.Some range models may have an additional broil burner located at the top of the oven cavity which may be referred to as a 'waist high' broil. If not, broiling usually takes place in the drawer area below the oven, which uses the same bake burner for the broil function. Most gas ranges currently available employ one of 3 basic gas ignition systems; pilot ignition, hot surface ignition system (which uses a 'glow bar' or 'glow coil' - aka an "ignitor") and a spark ignition system. The latter two being referred to as "electronic ignition" systems as they use electricity in one form or another to operate the oven heating system. Only the pilot ignition system has an actual "pilot" (which is a small but real "flame") which might need manual lighting.
If the surface burners of a range are a spark ignition type, the oven IS one of the possible kinds of electronic ignition systems and thus will not usually have a "pilot" which needs lighting. Be aware though that just because the surface burners might light via a spark doesn't necessarily mean the oven uses the spark type ignition system too.
There is one older style of electronic ignition system which does also use an oven pilot but it is very rare and such a system hasn't been used in oven models since the early to mid 70's. It is the 'constant pilot' *electronic ignition* system.


Making Observations
The oven burner's operation will usually need to be directly observed while in operation as the first step to troubleshooting problems.Ignition System Type Links
Ignition System Types:
  • Pilot Ignition
  • Electronic Ignition with Constant Pilot (rare)
  • Electronic Ignition with Glow Ignitor (most common)
  • Spark Ignition System

  • Is there continuity between the oven gas valve's terminals?


    Hot Surface ('Glow Bar') Ignition System (most common)
    This is the most popular system currently used for ovens and is comprised of a control mechanism (whether thermostat or electronic control), the oven ignitor and an oven gas valve.


    What happens in this style ignition system is that the thermostat or electronic control switches power to the oven ignitor and gas valve circuit which are connected in series (one after the other). As power flows through the ignitor it heats and draws current (measured in amperage). Once the oven ignitor draws a specific amount of current the oven valve opens to allow gas to flow to the oven burner where the glowing hot ignitor (glow bar) ignites it. Power must continually flow through the ignitor and oven gas valve for gas to be released into the oven burner to create a flame.

    It should usually only take in the area of 30-90 seconds for the oven ignitor to reach the proper resistance to allow the proper amperage to reach the gas valve to open it and for the ignitor to ignite the gas at the oven burner.

    Hot surface igniter will not glow on a suothbend mod. GS/25sc


    Test to make sure ya have power going to the igntor. If you do then change the ignitor out for a new one. If ya don't then ya need to check the sensor to see if it is faulty if it ohms out ok then test the Tstat.

    Oven will not light, hot surface ignitor is working, is this a safety valve problem?


    While the ignitor is glowing, tap on the valve with the handle of a large screwdriver. If the valve opens and the burner lights- replace the ignitor. If not replace the valve-depending on age I will sometimes do both right then.

    Electric ignighter does not come on in the oven at all


    In most cases it is the ignitor itself. Eledtricity goes thru the ignitor and as it gets hot it allows more electricity thru to the gas coils, allowing them to open and let the gas go thru. The ignitors do get weak and will glow but that is all. Not enough electricity can get to the gas valve solenoids and let gas thru. Find a local parts dealer and give them your make and model # to order the part.

    How do you light a gas oven


    Chances are your hot surface ignitor is bad. Take off the bottom panel inside the oven you will have to removes grills also. You will see a center beam under the panel that is where the flames of your burner are. The hot surface ignitor is right there at the start of the burners. As a test turn the oven on and notice it hot surface ignitor glows. If it didn't glow then it needs to be replaced. Easy fix only held on by two small screws 1/4 size nut runner and two wires. You will have to cut the wires as they run back into the back of the oven. The new one just take the wire nuts that come with it and attach. Don't make the wires too short as you will need the length. let me know how it goes ken

    I just cleaned by hand by magic chef wall oven and now I can't


    Pilotless ignition means that a hot surface ignitor lights the oven burner. It does take a little bit of time to light the burner. Maybe 30 seconds. If you want to make sure it lights take the bottom panel out from the oven and observe the hot surface glow and the burners light. No real danger as the gas valve will only open after the hot surface ignitor has satisfied the gas valve. Let me know how it goes. ken

    I have a gas oven whirlpool sf3020ekq2 buners work but oven won't


    Sounding like your hot surface ignitor is getting bad. What I would like for you to do is open the oven and take the bottom panel off. This is so you can see the hot surface ignitor. Turn the oven on and look at the hot surface ignitor it is down on the bottom right next to the burner assembly. Does it start to glow and turn cherry red? This ignitor isn't too hard to replace couple of small screws and two wires. Will have to cut the wires so disconnect the unit from the 120 volt plug. Now if it starts to glow and get cherry red hot then the gas valve is sticking and it is the one going bad. That is a little tougher to replace. Turn the gas off at the source and get your wrenches unscrew the gas valve small space so if you want remove the door by just pulling it off the hinges.

    If unit is old and you don't like it anyway maybe santa would be good to you and replace the stove oven. The gas valve is about 60 bucks or so and hot surface is about 20 bucks. let me know how it turns out.. ken
