I need to know how to light the oven? Does it have a pilot light like the stove top

most stoves do not have pilot lights but work from a pizo ignition system
when you turn on the gas knob ,the first action is to energize the pizo and that continually sparks to ignite the gas at the hob
the same is with the oven
ovens should be lit with the oven door open and once lit then the door can be closed

Oven igniter will not quit sparking when pilot and burner is lit.

Hello & Welcome to FixYa

The problem seems to be with the spark module as it won't quit sparking, another thing to check before spark module replacement is the ignition switches. Please get back to me if you have any other questions.

My stove lights very slow with a low flame. Should the igniter stay on after it lights oven

Yes the ignitor stays on even after the burner is lit. The ignitor is wired in series with the oven valve. It sounds like the oven valve isn't opening all the way. A new ignitor should solve this problem. The old igniter builds up resistance and doesn't let the correct voltage through to the oven valve for it to open properly.

Oven won't ignite

Your range is a Direct spark model.ce00970.jpg8278a1e.pngIf you want a Direct spark manual, let me know. The module gets confirmation from relay on the oven control and sends dc power to the gas valve. I suspect that gas valve be cause the top burners work which is usually and indicator that the module is fine. The terminals ohms should be 216 ohms between each of the 3. If any are open the valve won't work.

Igniter in oven will try to ignite. Hear gas flow. Can see spark on upper burner assembly but it does not ignite. Use custom broil and it will ignite the upper burner but will not stay lit after ignition...

the ignitor may be faulty and not pulling enough power to keep the as valve open in order to light them oven, even though it is getting red or glowing the power is not enough.try and replace the ignitor

Oven won't stay lit

Welcome to Fixya
My name is Huum,

The igniter is bad even if you see the spark.
the igniter must first get red hot with enough amps to ignite the gas or the valve will not open or if ope it will shut off!

My oven - St George UGM-4 model - won't light. I don't know how old the oven is. There have been problems for a while, with the flame going out after about 5 minutes when it's first lit (it makes a...

this one is hands on fix,many times the spark ignition the one that makes the clicking noise is clicking on a different position,so you most look inside the oven to see the spark, you can see it better at night or when is dark to see the spark, that spark is right at the tip of the oven pilot, make sure you see the spark lighting the long as the pilot does not ignite.the clicking sounds continues making the noise. if the pilot lights the noise will stop, if the oven burner does not light after pilot is being for about 1 minute and a half the safety valve needs replacing

Often times you will have problems with the gas thermostat and not necessarily with the safety valve. Once you have lit the pilot light, turn the oven knob to any temperature. The pilot light should get bigger in size of flame. If not, the thermostat that controls the oven must be replaced. If the pilot light does get bigger, but the stove does not ignite, it is the safety valve.
