    Oven does not ignite. Display shows 100 degrees, bake light on all other systems work. Self-clean mode works but only broiler seem to be on.

Replace the igniter. Even if it's glowing red hot, it is still likely the problem. Evidently the oven reads the resistance across the heating element, and when it doesn't detect enough resistance, it knows that the igniter is wearing out, thus not getting hot enough, and you're going to have a hard time igniting the gas. So, it won't turn on the gas -- how thoughtful of your oven to keep you from blowing up.

I had the same problem until I read all about it at http://fixitnow.com/wp/2004/09/19/appliance-repair-revelation-troubleshooting-a-gas-oven-that-wont-fire-up/

If you're in a bind and need to use your oven tonight (or you want proof that it's the igniter going bad), you can try stealing the igniter from the broiler and using it to replace the igniter for the main part of the oven. Since most people use the broiler less than the regular "bake" feature of the oven, that igniter lasts longer.

most likely the igniter is not working at 100% and the gas valve won't open unless it is at 100%. Replace the igniter first.

The broiler and the burners all light but the oven doesn't.


your oven igniter is no good. remove racks from oven, unscrew the 2 screws in the back of he bottom panel. remove panel. there will be a metal plate on top of the flame spreader. remove the wing nut holding the plate and remove plate. you should now see the igniter. now try turning the oven on. after a few seconds you should see the igniter glowing. if it gets to a real bright then it is good. if it doesnt it is bad. unplug the stove.changing it is fairly simple. just remove the 2 screws holding it in place, gently pull on the wire to see if there is a connector, if not then you can always cut and join the wires to install the new igniter. igniter should run you less that $20 bucks. its pretty simple to change. after changing the igniter and before reassembling your oven, just plug it back in and turn the oven on. oven should lite. do not put hands or ace inside the oven while attemping to lite.

The oven on my stove will not lite. all the buners lite. gas stove


The problem is usually the igniter not reaching the correct amp draw .When the igniter does not reach the correct amp draw it may allow the gas valve to partially open or not open at all. The igniters are inexpensive and easy to replace. This video will walk you thru the correct procedure for testing an oven igniter. It may be a different model but the testing will be the same.You can also enter your model # for diagrams and illustrations of your specific model. Not all models are available. All parts come with installation instructions.

No, the gas valve for the oven is electric and requires a complete circuit (ie; igniter, sensors, etc) in order to operate

Oven will not lite


Unplug the unit, change the igniter maybe it does not draw enough ampage.
or check the gas control knob if somebody mistakenly turned it to off position. the ON position should be inline with the gas pipe.
