We have had to replace the bake valve in the oven 4 times. The last time the bake valve and ignitors were all replaced and it quit working again. This has been over a 7 month period for all these repairs.

Tappan Gas Range 36-30612302 oven does not get hot enough


The problem beleive it or not is that the bake ignitor is weak ,and it is not drawing the proper amprage to open the gas valve.If you have a amp meter access the wires to the bake ignitor(usually behind the storage drawer) and check for 3.3-3.6 amps when oven is set to bake by clamping the meter around ONE wire wire of ignitor make sure only one wire,either one and not both.
if amp draw less than 3.3-3.6 amps replace bake ignitor. I know it seems improbable that if the ignotor comes on that it could be the problem.Professional appliance technicians who would charge a average of $250.00 to repair your oven,have found when the ignitor comes on yet the oven won't heat to correct tempature that a weak ignitor is the cause 100% of the time

Broiler does not light....Put in new ignitor; still not working. Checked orfice to make sure its LP and not Natural gas. Its number is #56...Is this correct for LP?


The Jenn-Air Broiler LP broiler orifice is part number: AP4091112. A picture of the part is here: http://www.appliancepartspros.com/Appliance-Parts/whirlpool-orifice--broiler--lp--item-number-ap4091112.aspx . (To me the number looks like 65 to me. The natural gas version is number 47.)

Check the current draw at the igniter. (The meter must be in series with the igniter. I know the bake igniter needs to be above 3.2A.) Other possible causes of the problem are a selector switch problem or the glow bar. (These are things to check if the oven works.)

I hope this helps.

No Bake; everything else works


Hi, When you put the oven on bake, can you see the ignitor glowing but get no flame?
Sound like the ignitor might be getting weak and not opening the gas valve. Please let me know if this sounds like the problem.
It is common for the ignitor to go bad. Even if it glows, it can be bad.
Please let me know if I can assist you further.

Hotpoint 30" self cleaning gas range with sealed burners - no bake


It may be the ignitor, they can crack and you wouldn't even see. Good news is they are cheap ($5-20) and they are usually easy to replace. But before you replace it...

When set to bake, does the "oven cycle" light come on? If not, that means no power is being sent to the ignitor. Reason? There is a switch in the oven latch, to make sure a) latch must be closed for cleaning cycle and b) latch must be unlocked for baking. On mine, the switch button gets stuck, so even when the latch is unlocked, it thinks it is locked and will not allow the bake cycle to proceed. Cycling the latch a few times may free it, otherwise you'll need to replace the switch (not that hard but a bit of a pain to get to).

Oven is slow to start


Dear Friend,

I had the same problem and the first step you should take is to replace the bake ignitor, you most likely to have a weak ignitor. If this doesn´t solve your problem, than your gas valve is failing. Despite the broiler is ok, the gas valve has independent channels for bake and broiler, so it´s possible for one to fail and the other is good. But i believe that changing nthe ignitor will solve it.
