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.

Oven glowplug lights but gas will not turn on oven, broiler works fine. have replaced gas valve and circut board


Even though the ignitor (glowplug) is heating up, it more than likely still needs to be replaced. They do become weak over time. An oven gas valve requires a certain amount of current moving through the coil in order to open the plunger. The he circuit goes through the ignitor, and the hotter thee ignitor gets, the more current flows through it. As the ignitor weakens, it does not allow sufficient current through the circuit to open the valve. Replace the ignitor and you'll be baking in time for Thanksgiving. Use caution when installing the ignitor, as they are extremely fragile. Also, do not touch the actual element section of the ignitor when installing it.******Remember to remove power from the range before making this repair.
Good luck, and gobble, gobble.

Oven won't light, even with ignitor getting red


If your oven won't bake, check these:

Bake igniter
Other causes
Bake igniter Usually when an oven won't bake, it's because the bake igniter is weak or burned out. The igniter is a small, round or rectangular device, that's about 1 inch by 4 to 8 inches. It's near the burner itself.

The burner is the tube-type device the gas flows through before it's ignited. It has many small holes on the sides to let the gas, when ignited, form a long, low flame. If the igniter is weak, if it glows red but doesn't get hot enough, or if it's burned out, the gas doesn't flow to the burner and the burner won't ignite. If this is the problem, you may need to replace either the igniter or the gas safety valve. Usually the igniter is to blame.

Other causes Other reasons that your oven may not bake are:

  • The clock settings are incorrect (if you have timed baking or a self-cleaning oven).

  • The thermostat is defective.

  • The safety valve that prevents accidental gas flow is defective.

  • The selector switch is defective.

Top oven bake igniter comes on, but gas does not.


Check the voltage on the 2 wires going to the oven gas valve. If you get 120v when the ignitor is on with no gas coming out, you have a bad gas valve. If you get voltage, but it is not much, it is the ignitor. The ignitors don't burn out completely on the ovens, they just get a little dim and no longer ignite the gas and eventually will not turn on the gas valve

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).
