Question about DCS RGS-305 Professional Gas Kitchen Range

Broiler not working, Oven OK

I have a DCS RGS-305SS 30" Gas range which has had numerous failures (thermostat broke, it shipped from factory with the oven disconnected etc). Been working fine for a few years now but recently after a power outage, the broiler stopped working.

I've scoured the web and the best I can determine is that the igniter is bad. so where can I get a replacement igniter (preferably online). I'd really rather DIY this if it's a just a bad part. I figure it can't be that hard to replace. Will this part come with instructions? If not can someone give me some pointers as to how to remove the old one, install the new one?

    Reliable Parts does not carry anything for DCS. Anywhere else that might?

    Our DCS gas oven heats fine. Gas comes out when you turn the broiler on (you can smell it), the element turns red and gets hot, but it does not ignite the fire in the broiler.

    Looking for any advice/help and where to order parts - can't find them anywhere. Thanks.

    I have had this DCS range for about five years. IT is a model RGS-305. My first problem is one that I see everyone else is having. It started with the oven not coming on. Broiler ignitor would still glow and ignite. The problem now is neither broiler or oven ignitor will glow. Is both ignitors bad and how much and where to get them?

We have a DCS RG-366 SS L, a 36" gas range and the igniter went out. You could smell gas and the igniter would glow red - but no fire across the broiler.

There is a place in Michigan called We bought a replacement igniter from them and it works like a charm. It was $53 (we live close by and didn't have to have it shipped).

The item number (from the invoice) is 1191 and the box the igniter came in looks like it is manufactured by FSP, code 082005, and there is a larger number on the box that says 786324 IGNTR-OVEN.

Hope this helps.

I had the same need for an igniter and was able to get it by contacting DCS directly. You can contact DCS directly at (888) 281-5698. You must have the model number which is RGS-305SS. If you have the product manual it has the part name and number. The manual I have lists part number 211542, igniter I/R (large).

Why doesn't oven work?

Give the repair man the opportunity to make the oven work instead of charging you for parts that probably did not need to be replaced.

Oven wont light ,igniter is O.K Burners on top work Seems like no gas comming into oven . What to do?

Ignitor is the most common problem, even when it appears to be glowing somewhat. If you've already replaced it, then it's the gas valve. Call for service!

My oven won't heat up and just smells like gas but my stove burners work

Hello, This is going to be a problem with your igniter/glow bar. Over time these get old and although you may see it glowing iit still may be bad. Your igniter should glow a brillient yellow and should ignite the gas within 15 seconds of the valve opening. If you have any other questions or concerns please feel free to comment again...Good Luck! Mike

The Infra-red broiler covered by glass does not sear or brown sufficiently

You might try covering the glass areas ( such as the door ) with tin foil... Hope that helps...

Help in Replacing broiler igniter DCS RG-486GD

You have to remove the back of the range; the wires plug into the gas valve that controls gas to the broiler.  They detach by pulling on the slip on connector.

Oven in DCS gas range doew not turn on

Well some of the older ones have a unit that is sorta like a pilot light which keeps you safe by not letting out gas before it ignites so as to not blow up. This macanism is probably bad. I use to replace them on Tappan ovens. They would last a couple of years and then would go out and to replace them then was about $80.00. Easy to do. They are usualy located inside the oven somewhere and look like a glass eye on one end with a small 1/4 inch gas line connecting to the other end.
