The technical jargon is,.....:
In order for your gas oven to work this is what has to happen: 1. when you turn on the oven, the range sends 120 volts to the glow bar igniter. 2. as the igniter heats up (and starts to glow) it starts using more electricity. 3. when the electric use reaches a set amount (say 3.2 amps) the range knows the glow bar igniter is hot enough to ignite the gas, so it then releases gas through the gas safety valve. 4. when the thermostat tells the oven controller that the temperature has been reached, the control cuts power to the igniter, cutting the amp draw down, causing the safety gas valve to close. 5. process repeats to hold oven temp until you turn off oven.

So,..........the solution is:
most likely your oven igniter burnt out. Find your model number, usually on the range frame just behind the lower drawer or broiler drawer (depending on if it is a self clean gas range or not) and order the correct igniter and replace it.

Oven not working on gas bosch stove, has never worked since purchased, oven doesn;t come on at all, lights just blink


I would go back to where you purchased it and see if they can repair it under warranty. If you have had it to long then oops you may have to pay for it. I doubt there is anything missing form the circuit board.

The oven doesn.t go on, I see the ignighter turn on but the gas won't light.


Hello Jim,
Believe it not the igniter is the problem,yes indeed it is coming on yet it is not getting hot enough to allow the gas valve to open. By replacing the igniter with a fresh strong one, the oven will work just fine.

I have an gas stove Hotpoint model RGB524PEA2WH and Im trying to use my oven but doesnt work.I can see the ignator working, but the gas does not come out. I check the parts and seems to be fine. What can I...


What do you mean "checked the parts?" If you are not a qualified tech DO NOT TOUCH ANYTHING! Check to see if there is a separate knob by the thermostat that turns on the gas.

Oven Ignation would not Stop flickering after ignation


This is usually due to the "brain" of the stove going bad, better known as the control module... not an expensive fix if you can find the part and due it yourself... you can locate it iether in the back right corner when you lift the stove top or it's under an access panel below your broiler drawer depending on model.

You probably need to replace the the ignitor. Even though it glows red does not mean that it is working propery. If it does not draw at least 3.5 amps the gas valve will not open. This can be check with a amp meter.
