Is the ignitor you need for the oven, stove top surface burners. If for the oven is it about a inch or so in round diameter and about 4-6 inches long with 2 wires to it and glows when oven is turned on? the very old ignitors for the oven was a square/rectangle glow plug about a inch or so square
next time send the brand name and model number so i can look up your machine,if it's a gas stove most likely it will be a bad ignitor,even if the ignitor glows it still could be bad,if the flame doesn't ignite and the ignitor is glowing change it out,if it isn't glowing pull out the ignitor and check it with a meter,common problem.
The stove should not take over 3 minutes to light. Even if the ignitor is glowing it is impossible to really tell if it is ok or not. When the ignitor heats up it's resistance drops, this allows for the amp draw to get to 3.2 amps or better and that opens the bi-metal inside the oven valve. The oven circuit consists of a control to regulate temp, a safety valve, a ignitor, and a burner. Any open component and the oven will not fire off. If all the components have continuity and the ignitor is glowing, but no joy, I would replace the ignitor. Usually the ignitor gets dim when it is weak and it takes a long time to light off and you might even have to bump the stove and get it to come on. Replace that ignitor.
Hi, You should change the ignitor. Even tho it glows, the ignitor is to weak to open the gas valve. UNPLUG the oven. Remove the floor panel in the oven and you sill be able to see the ignitor. This is very common with gas stoves.
I hope this helps you. Please let me know if I can assist you further.
Most likely a hot-surface ignitor has failed. If it doesn't consume enough current, the gas valve won't open. It's usually a fairly easy fix, once you gain access to the ignitor and have a new one to replace it with. Make sure you unplug the range...
The JGRP17 (not a full model number) does not have a pilot light. It uses glow bar ignitors. Watch the burner at the top of your oven when you turn on broil. After a short time the glow bar ignitor begins to glow, and a short time after that the broiler burner should ignite. The same thing should happen with the oven burner under the floor of the oven when you attempt to bake. If the igniter does not glow, or glows and burner does not light, replace ignitor.
