Igniter that heats up to light the oven may have gone bad. if it has it will not allow the gas to come on in the oven as a safety feature. Also a bad thermocouple in the oven can stop the oven from lighting.

When you turn on the oven do you see the igniter near the main burner come on? It will glow really red-orange and be bright. If on but dim replace it. If it does I would replace the thermocouple in the oven itself. Usually looks like a rod in clips on the back wall of the oven with a metal wire leading through to the back or bottom of the oven. A hardware store should have a replacement for it so pop it out of the clips and undo the other end then take it with you to match up.

Although gas range oven may prove useful for cooking and baking, they may fail to ignite if they aren't properly maintained and set up. Lighting a gas range often involves simply turning a knob; however, blockages from food particles and debris caught in the burners, improper burner cap installation and gas supply are common problems that interfere with your gas range oven's performance. A few troubleshooting guidelines may solve these problems safely.

      Inspect the small vertical holes on the side of your burners for dirt, food and debris. The gas won't ignite if they are clogged. Scrape dirt, debris and food from the vertical holes using a pointy object such as a toothpick or paperclip.

      Reinstall the burner caps properly. If they are tilted or wobbly, the gas may not ignite. Install the caps on the right burners. Some burners are smaller than others, so match the caps to the appropriate burners.

      Move the burner knob to the "Lite" position and wait for the gas to ignite. If it ignites, rotate the knob to your desired setting. If it doesn't ignite, contact a qualified appliance technician.

Oven wont heat broiler wont heat


is this a gas or electric range. If it is gas it sounds like a flame sensor is not working. The oven will try to fire up, but if it does not sence a flame, it will shut off again to keep the range from filling with raw gas. Also the easy one, is the gas turned on?

The heating element goes on but the oven does not heat up. A few months ago noticed that it began to heat up very slowly. Now does not heat up.


Hello, dinophyl (early Jurassic protozoa, hey) Do you have a Gas or Electric kitchen range? Very good possibly that the thermostat control in the oven is bad. That little brass bulb in the oven. This controls the internal temperature of the oven. If it an electric range then the the electrical thermostat on the oven knob could also be the culprit also. GB..stewbison
