Problem with model #MGK5875QDW

The oven would not heat up unless on broil. We installed a new ignitor and it fixed the problem. Now, 1 month later, we suddenly have the same problem again. What could cause this?

Sometimes you can just get a bad ignitor. i would change it again. however you have to make sure you are changing it with the proper ignitor. also make sure the connection is not loose. if it has a plastic connector you may have to cut that connector off and splice the wires

My spectra stove's oven is not working, the burners work, the broil works, but my oven will not heat up


Hi.

The JBP78 is electric, since you are talking about a gas oven I think the model is incorrect.

Talking about a gas ovens:

If the oven is not heating up and both broiling and baking burners are working and coming up then check the temperature probe sensor and the control board.

If one of the two burners is not firing check the ignitor, the burner and coil, the burner and flame sensor. The most common problems come from defective ignitor.

Regards.

I have a Kitchenaid KGBS276X double wall oven. The botton oven works fine. The top oven will start when it's in the broil position, but as soon as I turn down the heat setting it cuts out and stops. ...


so you're saying you have no bake,correct.you have a broil ignitor and a bake ignitor,the broil only has one setting and that's broil,all the other settings are for bake.i looked up the ignitor on the sears site,it costs 189 bucks.it cross refrences to part number 12400035 and this ignitor will work and it's 62 bucks,change out the bake ignitor and you should be fine,you can check it with a meter or turn on the oven and see if the ignitor even glows,it turns red when it's on but even if it glows this doesn't mean it's good,it opens the gas valve by amps,3.5 amps but i would start with the ignitor,it should fire up in around 40 seconds or shorter,if it's more than a minute the ignitor is no good.let me know what you find,unplug the oven before you change out the ignitor

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.

    Just cleaned the oven,now no broil and no oven


    Sounds like you have knocked the ignitor wires loose or out of position. Look at the assembly and make sure everything is connected and properly positioned.
    Not sure about the manual.

    GSP31GER GE gas slide in oven dosent work


    I think you missed a letter at the beginning of your model number. (it is maybe a JGSP31GER ?) I would first test the broil, and see if that works. (I would guess that it does) Most likely the oven ignitor (part number WB13K5058 ) needs to be replaced. It is located under the floor of the oven right next to the burner. It is a round electric coil thing about 4 inches long. If you want to confirm that this part is bad before replacing it, (and the broiler works) you can take the ignitor off the broiler and install it in place of the oven ignitor. They are the same part number. Of course now your broiler and self clean will not work unless you replace the broiler's ignitor. This is not too difficult, maybe a 3 on a scale of 1 - 10. Should be a Fix-Ya for your slide in range!

    Oven takes longer than expected to light


    You probably have a bad gas valve, part # WB21T10014, unless the new igniter is defective. If your broil works, you can prove this by temporarily hooking the broil igniter in the bake spot. Hope this helps!
