The control unit, which is where the reset is was continually clicking in and out. I held the control unit and could feel this occurring and thought that the box was the problem but it wasn't. Thanks to Rick GELIN I took out the magic eye and gave it a clean and it works fine.

I replaced the ignitor in my sectra about a year ago and it fixed the problem with the oven not lighting. So this year when it happened again I thought I know how to fix this and threw in another ignitor...

I would check that new igniter with a volt/ohm meter, cracks can be hard to see with the naked eye. If it is glowing but gas won't come on, you should check the voltage going to the oven valve while everything is hooked up and the thermostat is calling for heat. You need at least 3.0 volt ac to open the valve, if you get 120 volt ac, the valve is defective.

Oven wont light unless you turn on a stove eye and


Sound`s to me you need a new hot surface ignitor. Sorry to hear you may have changed the valve & regulator for nothing, but that happen`s quite often when you get the symptom`s you`ve described, I`ve even seen tech`s. do it. The reality is 9 times out of 10 when a hot surface ignition gas/lpg oven won`t light it is the ignitor.

Pick up part number 74007498 for approx. $40 and you`ll be cooking.

Hope that help`s. If so please take a second and rate the solution I provided here at fixya for you.

Good luck.

GE JSP39 range; front right burner eye doesn't work at all

there are two tests to chk which is bad,wether it is the control switch or the elemnt.disconnect the power to stove and open the top and disonnect the wires from elemnt and chks the continuity of the elemnt coil with a multimeter.if the meter does not read continuity then elemnt is confirm this connect the wires back to the elemnt and plug the unit to power, turn on the switch to high position and read the voltage coming to should be 240 volts.if u read that voltage, then for sure element is bad.if every thing is opposite to this then it is the control switch which is bad.

Large Heating Element no longer heats

Is it the eye itself or the receptacle? solution: yank out the questionable eye and put another from the stove in that one. swap em around and determine if the eye is bad or the receptacle. The receptacle are around 10 bucks.

I have a frigidaire PLES389ECC. One of the knobs for an eye on the stove top is in the off position but the display shows it on low. This setting will automatically jump to 2.0. Heat is being given off...

remove the knob fist off and try using a diff knob, perhaps the back of hte knob has become strepped and/or cracked. afeter removing hte knob see if you can manually turn the switch off,if not replacing the switch seems the likely answwer, they call it a poteniometer, and each positon of "eye" has a specific one so order the correct one

Problem with left front eye

This sounds dangerous! you can lift the top of the stove to access the burners source of electricity. Unplug one of the hot wires to the bad eye and conpletely cover it with electrical tape. NOTE: This is a temporary fix. consult Maytag Support @ 1-800-688-9900 For a better long term solution! Have a great day, Alan
