Question about Hotpoint RGB745 Gas Kitchen Range
The controls all seem to work, but the oven doesn't ignite. Range works fine, broiler works fine, only the oven refuses to light. The Pre heat light comes on, but that's all. I've tried to see if the oven would work on a preset cooking timer, but that also doesn't get a flame in the oven, even thought it runs through the cycle and turns itself "off". This happened once before, about 3 months ago, but after 2 days, it started working fine. The controls all seem to work, but the oven doesn't ignite. Range works fine, broiler works fine, only the oven refuses to light. The Pre heat light comes on, but that's all. We have replaced the bake ignitor switch and the oven still doesn't ignite. What do we do now?
Is the gas valve easy to replace on a gas oven?

If its not the oven ignitor itself then its usually the gas valve in the range.

Sounds like the oven ignitor is weak. If everything else is working it must be a bad ignitor. These are usually easy to replace and can expect to pay $70-$100 for the part. Check to see if it glows when in bake mode first. If it does then replace the ignitor. You can look at the ignitor, when not on, if it is white-ish then it needs replace or if it doesn't have a full glow, can compare to broil ignitor, then it needs replaced. Let me know if you have further questions.
