Replacing Oven Igniter

The broiler works, the burners light, but the oven igniter does not ignite. We will be purchasing the replacement igniter tomorrow and the oven is in pieces. Any ideas how we can access the screws that attach the igniter to the burner? They are located under the igniter, at an angle that renders every wrench in the toolbox unusable. We have attempted to remove the burner, without results, but will continue to pursue this approach if absolutely necessary. On the broiler, the same igniter is attached so that the mounting screws are easily accessible. Any ideas?

PULL OUT THE DRAWER AND THAT WILL ALLOW YOU ACCESS TO THE 1/4" SCREWS IN THE LOWER REAR THAT HOLDS THE BURNER IN PLACE ALONG WITH THE FRONT SINGLE 1/4" SCREW. NEED A FLASHLIGHT FOR THIS. THIS FREES UP THE BURNER SO YOU CAN ACCESS THE IGNITER MOUNT SCREWS.

More than likely, you have a bad igniter. As the igniters age from repeated use, they can become weak and longer function properly. Just because they glow, does not mean they are good. If you are experiencing ignition problems, the following link explains a little theory about how these igniters work and how to replace one:


http://www.fixya.com/support/r3575727-replacing_an_oven_igniter_on_a_gas_range


The burner manifolds in the oven each use a glow bar or electrode type igniter with a gas safety valve to ignite. Both oven manifolds are controlled by the Electronic Oven Control (EOC) board, which is your clock/timer on the control panel. If the surface burners work, but the oven does not, the problem is usually not a gas related issue. If a single igniter is still working (i.e., the broiler still works), its more than likely NOT a control board issue, either.

Replacement parts (if required) can be purchased at any of the following websites:

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

Prices vary between these sites, so shop and compare. The first three sites listed also offer helpful exploded view diagrams to help you locate and properly identify the parts you need. If the model number is correct, the part number for a replacement igniter is WB2X9154.

NOTE: It is common for the BAKE igniter to require replacement more often than the broiler, due to the frequency of use.

If you have any questions please post back and let me know. I hope this helps you.

Oven will not light - top burners and broiler work fine. Oven igniter glows when oven bake is selected but burner will not light. Is bake igniter replacement by owner practical?


I would first check the amperage of the igniter. If the igniter is pulling the amps it should then the problem is the gas valve. In my experience the igniter is usually the culprit. They are not difficult to change just make sure you unplug the oven because some times there is live voltage on these wires.

Oven doesn't light. I have a Maytag MGR5750. The pre-heat light comes on but no ignition. Stove top burners work okay.


First thing to do is verify if the hot surface igniter or spark igniter is working. If the oven has a bottom broiler compartment then you can check from the bottom compartment. If it has a top broiler then you may need to remove the inner bottom cover inside the oven to look at the burner and igniter. Now turn on the oven and watch for the hot surface igniter to start to glow or the spark igniter to come on. If the igniter comes on then give the gas control valve(located at the bottom broiler/storage compartment) a tap with a wrench or a screwdriver. If the burner comes on then shut the oven back off and on several times COMPLETELY. If it works then you may have fixed the problem by dislodging debris in the valve. If it does not come back on then the gas control valve may be defective or the igniter could be weak. The igniter should be tested with a ohm meter and if it tests good(500-700 ohms usually) then the gas control valve will need to be replaced otherwise the igniter is bad. On spark ignition systems there is a different procedure. Another thing to check is the "runaway valve" that is located on the gas regulator for the range. It is a little lever located where the oven gas pipe comes off the regulator and cuts the gas to the burner when closed.

The lower oven ignighter does not glow


I had the same problem and swapped the oven igniter with the broiler igniter and the oven now works. This proved the oven igniter itself was the fault, now I have to replace the broiler igniter with a new one(which is much easier to get to).

FYI: An igniter may glow red and still not allow the oven to work. The igniter has to draw a certain amount of electrical current for the main gas valve to open.

Amana broiler problem


Each burner manifold in the oven has its own igniter. If the igniter is defective, the burner assembly will not light. The igniter has to be functioning properly in order for the gas safety valve to open. This is a designed safety feature that prevents free flowing gas from entering the oven cavity without ignition. This reduces the risk of explosions.

There should be a flame spreader metal plate covering the access over the broiler. You will need to access the broiler so you can view the broiler manifold and igniter. Turn the oven setting to broil and make sure the igniter begins to glow. If the igniter fails to glow, replace it. If the igniter does glow, but you still do not have ignition after 90 seconds, the igniter may be weak and still require replacement. The following link explains oven igniter types, their current potential, and how to replace them:

Oven bake ignites usually have lifetime 5-7 years. If igniter glows but gas not came in - replace igniter. Same with broil igniter.
