    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.

Kenmore gas range when no clicking when turning the oven on

Range: Gas burner won't spark or ignite A surface burner igniter switch and a spark module activate the spark electrode when a burner is turned to the "Lite" position on a gas range's cooktop. If the surface burner switch, spark module or wiring in that circuit fails, the spark electrode won't work, and as a result the gas burner won't light. If those components work but the electrode won't spark, the problem could be that the spark electrode is coated with spilled food of is bent or broken. In addition, the electrode won't spark or ignite the burner properly if the ceramic insulation sleeve below the tip of the electrode is cracked or broken. If the gas burner isn't lighting, these repairs may help.

Replace the spark igniter electrode

1396454293470.jpg The spark igniter electrode-also called the surface burner igniter-is an insulated electrode that provides an ignition spark to light a surface gas burner. It sparks and makes a ticking sound when the burner switch is turned to the Lite position. Replace the spark ignition electrode if it fails to spark or if the ceramic insulation sleeve is cracked or chipped. How to Replace a Spark Igniter Electrode in a Gas Range Find This Part

Replace the surface spark module

1377098014986.jpg The surface spark module is in the ignition circuit for the gas surface burners. When a surface burner control knob is turned to the "Lite" position, it provides voltage to the spark electrodes on the gas surface burners. If the surface spark module fails to provide the electrodes with voltage, then it should be replaced. Find This Part

Replace the spark igniter switch

1396454315355.jpg The igniter switch is an electrical switch on the stem of the gas surface burner control valve. This switch completes a circuit to the surface burner spark module, causing the burner igniters to spark when the burner switch is turned to the Lite position. Replace the burner igniter switch if the burners don't spark when you turn the burner control knob to the Lite position or if igniters spark constantly even when the burner knobs are in the Off position.

Oven pilot comes on but oven will not lite, burners work


Hello,

The reason the oven ogniter will come on yet their is no heat in the oven is because that igniter is weak and not drawing the proper power to allow the gas valve to open. By replacing the oven igniter it will open the gas valve and once again heat the oven.

Oven's ignitor is bright, I smell gas, but it won't lite.


if ignitor is brt orange to white its hot enough to ignite gas,either the flame sensor is giving wrong signal to control board and not opening gas valve or signals the gas valve to shut off gas before ignition,also your flame sensor could be faulty or control board is bad

OVEN WON'T STAY LITE MOST OF TIME & DOESN'T HEAT WELL:


Most problems with gas ranges have to do with the flame—either it isn't quite right or it's nonexistent. Many new gas ranges have "electronic ignition," a spark igniter that starts the flame as gas flows through the burners f, when you turn on a burner, it fails to spark but you hear sparking at other burners, the igniter or the burner switch probably needs replacement by an appliance repairperson. If your range has a pilot light, be sure the pilot light is lit.

have nice time..!! arte the solution!!

In many cases, even if the igniter is glowing, the resistance may not be low enough to turn on the gas valve. (It's the igniter that actually controls the gas valve) The igniter has probably gone bad. ($50.00 to $90.00 for igniter)

GAS RANGE / SF368LEPT


Your probably right. The oven sensor, or what you call a probe, when open will not light the oven. Take it out and check for 1 to 1.5K ohms. at room temp. if you don't have that replace the sensor.
