Oven of gas range will not light

I have an electronic ignition gas range purchased in 1985, still in excellent condition...until about 5 minutes ago! Trying to bake cookies and realized the oven did not heat up. The stove top burners still work fine, just nothing in the oven going on. No gas smell, no ignition. What part should I be looking to replace?

On my whirlpool gas range only 1 burner out of 5 will ignite. oven light works, oven ignites. only 3 months old and worked fine until now.


Most often when cleaning, soapis left behind and obstructs the flow of ignition gas normally directed at the exact point of the spark. Check this area and use a small wire brush to clean these area of the burners that do nto work. Let us know if this helps. Eric Campion

Bake oven does not light. Igniter glows for many minutes but no gas to oven. When I wrapped gas valve with hammer it lights!! When oven burner goes out when reached desired temp, it will not relight...


The igniter needs to draw between 3.6 and 4 amps to open the gas valve even thogh it is glowing the resistance may not be the same . Check the amperage and then replace igniter

There is no pilot on most of today's gas ranges. It uses and electric igniter to ignite gas via a gas safety valve. If the surface burners are working but the oven doesn't, this can be a simple matter of a bad igniter, or a bad Electronic Oven Control (EOC) board. The EOC is on the control panel and controls all your oven features. Since the igniter is the more common cause of this problem (and less expensive), I would recommend checking the igniter before assuming you need a new control board.

Have you confirmed whether or not the broiler still works? If the broiler still lights, then your problem is not a gas issue (some ovens use a separate regulator for the surface and oven gas supply). Each manifold in the oven has its own separate igniter.

The following link explains a little theory about how your oven works and what types of igniters are used:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r401858-replacing_oven_igniter_gas_range

It is common for the bake igniter to wear out faster than the broiler because it is used more frequently. NOTE: Just because an igniter glows, does not necessarily mean it is good. An igniter will become weak with age and may not draw enough current to open the gas safety valve. If the safety valve does not open, there is no gas flow, therefore, no ignition.

This is a designed safety feature that prevents free flowing gas from filling up the oven cavity with no ignition. Such a condition could become an explosion hazard.

A replacement igniter (if needed) can be purchased at any of the following websites:

searspartsdirect.com
appliancepartspros.com
pcappliancerepair.com
repairclinic.com

Prices vary between sites, so shop all of them for the best deal.

NOTE: If the connector plug on the replacement igniter you receive does not match the existing igniter, you should be instructed to cut the wires and splice them using ceramic wire lugs that should be included with the kit. Do not use standard wire lugs as they will melt. The ceramic lugs and the wiring to the igniter are heat resistant.

If you have any questions, or require additional assistance, please let me know. I hope this helps you.

OVEN WON'T STAY LITE MOST OF TIME & DOESN'T HEAT WELL:


Most problems with gas ranges have to do with the flame—either it isn't quite right or it's nonexistent. Many new gas ranges have "electronic ignition," a spark igniter that starts the flame as gas flows through the burners f, when you turn on a burner, it fails to spark but you hear sparking at other burners, the igniter or the burner switch probably needs replacement by an appliance repairperson. If your range has a pilot light, be sure the pilot light is lit.

have nice time..!! arte the solution!!

Top burners often wont light if oven is already lit


Hello and welcome,
If your range has electronic igniters, then you seem to have one or more bad igniters on top of the range if you have a pilot range then you have a gas restriction or clogged orifice tube.
Even if they make the click noise while trying to light they may not get hot enough to draw the gas on a constant speed!

This will need to be diagnosed hands on at your location.
But this is the fault!

Thank you for using fixya.

Amana ARGS7650 Keypad has no power


I had the same problem, same model. The electronic panel has to be replaced. This part is ~$215 before tax and shipping. With labor, I was looking at over $400. I bought a 4 yr old used GE gas oven for $75. That was my solution.

I believe the part to replace is labeled Erciii, gas

Part Number: AP4041311 made by WHIRLPOOL
This would have taken at least a week to ship (no one seems to have them in stock).

From now on, I will never own a range in which the oven or stovetop controls are electronic. Knobs and associated mechanics can be replaced MUCH more easily and cheaply!

Tappan TGFS26C, Oven igniter not even


Lets take the oven problem first. Sounds like you have a Hot Surface Ignitor problem. This is the device that glows and lights the burner. You can buy a universal ignitor at most appliance or heating and air conditioning supply houses. Note carefully how the old one is mounted. You may have to make some adjustments to mount the new ignitor, but it MUST be close to the gas burner like the old one! You don't smell gas because the gas valve will not open until the ignitor is hot. All ignitors work with the same voltage, so simply connect the new wires to the old ones.

I'm not certain if you have a standing pilot for the stove top burners or electronic ignition. Remove the top panel to check. If you have a gas pilot, relight it. If electronic ignition, clean the ignitors. If that does not solve the problem you may have to call a technician, as these systems can be complex.

Hope this helps.
