Oven failing to light

The oven igniter is not coming on nor is gas to the oven. When the oven is turned on only 2 volts is registering on my volt meter. What is most likely the problem? I would suspect that when the oven is turned on there should be 120 volts activating the gas valve and igniter.

Re: Oven failing to light

The ignitor needs at least 3.2 amps current flow to heat the bi metal in the gas  control valve enough to allow the gas to flow. cold ignitor (red) will not flow enough current, when ignightor gets yellow resistance drops enogh to allow bi metal to heat and allow gas valve to flow and ignight gas. most likely your ignitor is shot

You will need to look and see if the igniter is glowing a bright red. If it is weak, the oven will not light. Here is the igniter if you need to order it.

Also check and make sure your getting 3.2-3.6 volts AC to the valve.

Oven will not ignite

On your oven have you been able to look and see the if the igniter in the oven glows yet their is no flame? the leading cause of a gas oven not heating by far is a weak or cracked igniter. If you have multimeter you could check for 120 volts ac at the 2 wires the igniter plugs into,if their is 120 volts ac present at the igniter,its going to be the problem. If 120vac not present at valve when oven set,the oven gas valve then the control are they cause..firstly check the gas valve for continuty if 120vac not at igniter, if has contunuty and 120vac not at igniter,then the control will be the problem.But first check igniter its bad 100 times for every valve or control.

I have a Frigidaire Gas Range. model # FGF367CGSD replaced igniter and it blew something. voltage into electronic oven control nothing coming out

If you mean the oven gas valve, it only takes 3.3 volts ac to open the valve, if you accidentally sent 120 volts to it, you'll need to replace it. Pull the wires off the terminals and check for continuity through the coil to verify.

GE XL44 gas oven we replaced the ignitor and the oven does not work the broiler does

Hi, this could still be a defective igniter, to verify you need a volt meter. The voltage being delivered to the oven gas valve must be at least 3.1 volts ac. Anything less and the valve operation is unreliable. If you have 3.1 to 3.3 volts to the valve when the thermostat is calling for heat and no gas, the valve needs to be replaced, If the voltage is lower, change the igniter.

If my oven will not heat and I cannot hear any gas coming into the oven, how can I be sure if my ignitor is the problem?

You have to check voltage being delivered to the oven gas valve while the thermostat is calling for heat. A volt/ohm meter is the tool for this. If you get less than 3 volts AC to the valve, the igniter is bad.

I have a magic chef oven that will not iginite, the electric ignitor will not come on for the oven but the one for the broiler will, what causes this??

Most likely a bad ignitor. Turn off the gas to the oven. Remove the racks,remove the bottom oven pan. Remove the flame spreader to access the ignitor. Use a volt meter. Inse the probes into the ignitor connector and turn the oven on to bake. No voltage reading is a bad ERC control. If you read voltage you have a bad ignitor.

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

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.

The oven doesn't work ,the ignator doesn't light up. no gas coming

The technical jargon is,.....:
In order for your gas oven to work this is what has to happen: 1. when you turn on the oven, the range sends 120 volts to the glow bar igniter. 2. as the igniter heats up (and starts to glow) it starts using more electricity. 3. when the electric use reaches a set amount (say 3.2 amps) the range knows the glow bar igniter is hot enough to ignite the gas, so it then releases gas through the gas safety valve. 4. when the thermostat tells the oven controller that the temperature has been reached, the control cuts power to the igniter, cutting the amp draw down, causing the safety gas valve to close. 5. process repeats to hold oven temp until you turn off oven.

So,..........the solution is:
most likely your oven igniter burnt out. Find your model number, usually on the range frame just behind the lower drawer or broiler drawer (depending on if it is a self clean gas range or not) and order the correct igniter and replace it.

I suspect you may have a bad igniter. They will still glow nice and hot, but if they are weak the gas valve will not open. This is actually a safety feature. Depending on which type you have, the glow bar igniter is supposed to draw a certain current potential before the gas valve will open. Here's the current readings for both types: Round Glow Bar: 2.7 to 3.2 amps Square Glow Bar: 3.2 to 3.7 amps I would try to to determine if the igniter is good or bad before proceeding with a gas valve replacement. Generally, the igniter is a common fail item. Let me know if this helps.
