Oven will not ignite while glow ignitor is on...

Glow ignitor working, but the oven won't ignite... I hae only 2.3 volts to the safety gas valve... So does this mean that I have a bad valve, or not enough voltage present to allow gas flow? Should it 3 volts or 3.5 volts at the vlv? I am working on a Frigidare Gas Oven model# FGF316BSB Ser# VF35124945 Thank you kindly in advance

The ignitor has to draw enough current to open the gas valve. The cheapest way is to just replace the ignitor and that will fix it 9 out of 10 times.

Whatdoes an oven igniter do as opposed to the oven bake igniter?


Initors work with oven safety valves and open gas safety valves when the amp draw changes as the ignitor heats up. Ig niters light the flame and then become a thermocouple and send back confirmation of ignition to the central control. The model above uses a glow bar ignitor which is wired in series with the oven control and safety valve. The most common mistake when diagnosing the ignitor is working is you see it glowing. But that does not mean it is strong enough to open the bi-metal inside the gas safety valve which requires a minimum of 3.5 amps to bend the bi-metal so it will release gas to the burner. -PawPaw.

My gas oven (Frigidaire Gallery) is not preheating or coming up to temperature. The broiler and stove top burners work fine.


Most probable cause is a weak bake burner ignitor,if you can remove the floor of the oven and see a orange glow but within one minute thier is no flame the ignitor that glows is weak and needs to be replaced,if no glow at all ,if your capable find the 2 wires to the bake ignitor,using a volt meter set to AC volts there should be 120vac to the ignitor. If their is 120 vac and absolutly no glow the ignitor is cracked and needs to be replaced,if their is not 120 vac it could be the gas safety valve or control

No gas flow to oven, glow bar ignites no flame no smell of gas. safety gas safety valve was replaced


With the glow bar going and no gas smell that means you have a good circuit from control to valve and glow bar. For that glow bar to work it must change in resistance. If it is weak it won't change enough resistance to make the gas valve bi-metal open. Also the gas safety valve does not come preset and usually is bottomed out all the way for propane. You must adjust the orifice to aprox the same height as the old one to get the propah gas output for natural gas.

if your old valve did not leak and has continuity between the terminals it is fine. The ignitor/glowbar is weak. If it is dim orange that is usually a way to tell. Bumping the stove makes the bi-metal come on also is a sign of a weak glowbar

Turn on oven and temp stays at 75. No gas comes on and igniter does not glow. Replaced igniter and still have same problem. Have 120 volts in and out of igniter and it does not glow. Help?


Lets take a look at yer wirin diagram.
You have 4 components in the oven heating circuit. The control, the ignitor, the safety valve, and the sensor.
Ignitor has been replaced with no help right? Did you check for continuity of the gas safety valve?
themobilian_1659.jpgIf yall have nothing (open circuit) between the two terminals then the valve is bad. Won't no ignitor glow with an open safety valve. Next thing:
Sensor: 1100 ohms @room temp. Erratic or open sensor and the oven won't KNOW what the temp is. themobilian_1660.jpg
Finally and I say finally because yall want to replace the most expensive part which is the control last, after yall know for sure it ain't all of the above mentioned components.

I have some service manuals and more HERE

Magic chef self ignitor top,, how do u get the oven to work.. is it self ignite too. i turn on oven ger a glow in the oven,, dont know the model ,,older stove. good shape. bought house with gas stove...


If the glow bar is glowing and the oven doesn't come on in about 30 - 45 seconds.... it probably is the glow bar that needs to be replaced. BUT it could be the oven valve. Usually it is the glow bar.
The glow bar is wired in series with the oven valve and even if it is glowing it may not be sending the correct voltage through to the oven valve. To change the glowbar... unplug the appliance, unscrew 2 screws holding the metal bracket to the burner and remove the ignitor. You can cut the 2 white wires going to the ignitor and use ceramic wire nuts with the new ignitor.

Oven will not ignite glow plug an orange color


Just because the igniter is glowing doesn't mean it isn't bad. You also have a safety valve at the bottom rear of the oven that could be bad. If the igniter doesn't get hot enough to ignite the gas the safety valve will not let the gas in. If you don't have a separate broiler from the oven, check and see if broil works if so then its the "glow plug".

Hope this helps and good luck.

Oven does not work


First off check to be sure there is 120 volts at the wall outlet as this controls everything and may be as simple as a breaker or fuse. If that's okay then the igniter is the most commonly defective part and has two main functions. First,it draws electrical current through the oven safety valve to open it. Second, when it gets hot enough to glow it ignites the gas in the oven burner. If the igniter gets weak, it will fail to open the safety valve correctly. If the valve does not open, the oven will not heat. To determine if the igniter is defective, observe the igniter when the oven is on. If the it glows for more than 90 seconds without igniting the gas flame, this indicates that the igniter is too weak to open the valve. If the igniter is weak, replace it. If the igniter does not glow at all, use a multimeter to test the igniter for continuity. If the igniter does not have continuity, replace it.

Kenmore oven 362.75275690 won't fire...has new ignitor


if you get 120 volts to the ignitor, then the ignitor will glow ,if not you have a bad ignitor. the valve should have continuity through the the 2 connections.. its poosible to have 110v to ground at ignitor, the only way you get 110v you need to check power across the 2 wires to the ignitor( not to ground), and this will not happen with a bad safety vavle

New igniter, still won't work


Turn on oven. Ignitor should begin to glow. (if no glow after 30 seconds or so, check to make sure you have 120 volts to ignitor) Observe amperage draw using a clamp on amp meter. When amperage reaches 3.2 to 3.6 (for square syle ignitors) the oven safety valve should open, releasing gas and lighting the burner when the gas hits the red hot ignitor. For broiler, just substitute the word broiler for oven. Old ignitors get " weak " and may not draw enough amperage to allow safety valve to open. Also, voltage will affect the amperage draw, as lower voltage = lower amp draw.

Electric starter gas oven model jgrp17 won't heat


more than likely your glow bar ignitor has stopped working or at least pulling enough amps to open the safety valve. The floor of the ovens come out may have a couple screws toward the back. take the floor out if a diffuser is on top of the burner remove it. the glow bar ignitor is mounted on the burner turn the oven on and watch it should glow bright red and in about 30 secs open the gas safety valve. If it does not glow you may want to verify power to the ignitor, more than likely the ignitor is the problem. If it glows but does not open the safety valev still replace the ignitor not pulling the required amps to open the safety valve. just put a little dish soap on the screws to the ignitor to help from srtripping them out
