Question about Kitchen Ranges

1 Answer

Oven burner does not lite.

I took out the heat shields so I could get a good look at the ignitor and it glows as good or better than the broiler (which works) but burner gets no gas. Does the gas valve itself go bad? Where is it located? Also, all the top burners all work well. Thanx, Joe L

Valve gets stuck perhaps but the fact that the ignitor even glows tells me there power running through the valve, no glow= bad valve. Id have to say sounds as if you have a bad ignitor, yo can try "tapping" on the valve as teh ignitor is glowing, perhaps this will free it up( doubt it). the valve is the little box the ignitor wires goes back to,and gas feeds into as well

My oven is not working The Broiler works and the stove top works fine but the oven will not heat and when you turn it on no gas comes out I tried turning it on and using a lighter but nothing happens


You gave us good clues in information!-- Thanks!

Most modern gas ovens have a device called a Glow Ignitor to light the burner.
If this ignitor has filed, it will NOT left the gas valve open-- (Good thing, right? :-) )

You say the broiler lights fine-- so let's observe something when the Broiler lights:
Do you see a bright glow near the Broiler burner?
(Usually toward the top rear of the oven--)

Well, you should see a similar bright glowing near the BOTTOM rear of your oven, for the main burner to light off-- If you do NOT see this glowing-- then you need a new ignitor-

You can remove the bottom burner cover, and dig deeper into the repair if you like-
But a new ignitor needs to be exactly like the failed one-- the safety circuit is very fussy about the exact same ignitor-- or it will not allow lighting-- even with a new 'generic' installed.

How deep do you want to go into this repair?-- Maybe it is time to call the service people into do the job?-- You can tell them that you think the ignitor needs replacing-- and approx. what will they charge you for the service call and the ignitor?

I hope this helped.

My broiler works but oven is not heating. Is this an ignitor problem?


That could be a good analysis---

Here is an observation you can make thru the oven door:

When you turn the oven on to BROIL-- do you see the bright glow of the ignitor?
(It is almost like a light bulb was in there-- buy the burner!)

When you start the oven (on BAKE) setting-- do you see a similar bright glowing light?
(Tho down lower, near the Lower Over Burner)
If you see the bright light-- then the ignitor is apparently heating up--
If not-- then, YES-- you are likely right--
Ignitors are fairly common failure items-- and they can obviously stop the burner from lighting-

Make sense?

Let us know if we can help further.

SET DIGITAL THERMOSTAT TO SAY 350 DEGREES WILL NOT TURN ON OVEN,,, ? IF I SET TO BROIL BROIL WORKS BUT OVEN WILL NOT TURN ON ?


Possibly the ignitor for the main oven burner has failed--

An observation question:

When the Broiler 'lights' and comes on, do you notice the ignitor glowing bright, before the gas valve (to the Broiler) opens, and you get the Broiler lighting---

Now-- for the main burner to come on, -- there has to be a similar bright glow from the MAIN BURNER ignitor, before its main burner gas valve can open-- No Ignitor?-- No ignition, and not Main Oven burner!

Let me know what you need from this point on --

Oven does not ignite broiler does ignite burners do ignite


the ignitor should pull 2.8 amps or more. it can lite but not release gas. just beacuse it is glowing doesnt mean its good. check amp draw w/ meter if less than 2.8 amps. change it out. if doesnt glow or draw any amps. check to be sure have 120v. then change ignitor.

Oven won't ignite


most likely you have a bad ignitor.take out the racks and remove the floor,you'll see the ignitor,turn on the bake,the ignitor should glow and the flame should lite within 40 seconds,if it doesn't change out the ignitor,even if it glows that doesn't mean the ignitor is still good change it out.let me know what you find and next time send model number

Our broiler, and burners work great. Oven itself has an electric pilot lite that's working but not heating up the rest of the oven. Any suggestions?


I can only assume from your description you mean to say you have a gas range
your seeing an orange glow from the ignitor but your not getting proper heat.
well io would goto
appliancepartspros.com
type in your model number
you are looking for the BAKE IGNITOR
that should glow almost white hot,
or if you know how you can check it with an amp probe
it should be between 2.8 and 3.6 to properly operate your gas valve

Broiler works, oven settings - no flame, no heat.


Hi, it sounds like the oven ignitor might be bad. Remove the floor panel inside the oven and you will see the ignitor attached to the burner assembly. Turn the oven on and see if it glows. You can test the connection for the ignitor and see if it gets 120V to it. The most common problem with the gas oven is the ignitor. Most of the time, the ignitor glows but is not strong enough to open the gas valve.
Please let me know if this was helpfull or if I can assist you further.

Thanks

Broiler doesn't lite, no gas going to pilot


Most cases Broiler ignitor is out, after you turn on the Broiler, check the voltage on Broiler ignitor 2 wires, if you have approx. 110v, then change the ignitor, but you don't have 110v, then check Broiler safety valve and oven thermostat, but 90% of the time is the Broiler ignitor. Have fun.

Oven burner doesn't light


If memory serves me,there are a couple of screws on oven floor.Remove panel.Sounds like ignitor is the culprit.It feeds back to control.It may glow and light but unless it is sending full signal,gas valve will not open fully and oven will take forever to heat.
