Gas valve or ignitor

First my gas valve wouldnt put out any gas but the ignitor worked and after taking it all apart to check voltage to gas valve I had only about 2.8 volts then the ignitor stopped working and I checked it again and there was 120 volts has this ruined my gas valve as well?

The problem 99% of the time is the ignitor. even though its glowing its not pulling enough amps to open the bi-metal in the gas valve. id replace both ignitors if yours has two

JGB900 oven won't work. Range top works, broiler works. No glow in oven. Regulator is on.


Your problem is with the oven ignitor. Remove the racks from the oven, remove bottom shelf. Remove the metal plate covering flame spreader. The igniter should now be visible. Turn oven on and watch the glow from the igniter. It will come on but it wouldnt get too bright, so it wouldnt open the gas valve. After changing the ignitor, oven should light.

Top oven does not work...


measure the resistance on the valve if you have continuity its good if not replace it

My Dynasty oven was not doing anything when we turned it on to bake. So we replaced the ignitor. Now the ignitor glows but still now gas? What next? Thanks


you have a bad gas valve or the ignitor is bad,just because it glows doesn't mean it's good,it opens the valve by amps.you need an amp meter with a clamp on attachment,stick one of the ignitor wires in the clamp and read it out,it should be 3.5 amps but if the ignitor is new i would change out the gas valve,also check the wires on the valve and read out the valve with a meter.also if the ignitor is glowing but the flame isn't liting you're having problems with the gas coming in,when the ignitor reaches 3.5 amps it opens the gas valve and the flame ignites,check the burner tube to make sure the old ignitor didn't burn a hole through it,you can check the orifice to make sure it's open,read the valve out and if all are good change out the gas valve.let me know what you find

Stove top and broiler work Oven won't heat


the way to check this is to first see if ignitor comes on or put an amp clamp meter on it. the ignitor needs to draw 2.8 amps or more to engage the gas valve. if it doesnt lite or draw any amps at all. check voltage to bake ignitor. it will be the ignitor most likely. but the gas valve or control could be bad.

Oven stoped working, all other systems work broiler ect. Removed bottom plate to check glow tube for power or loose wires, turned on bake mode and one side of the globe tube was energised other side was...


Turn on the bake. If the bake ignitor comes on (starts glowing after a few seconds) - check the amperage on the bake ignitor wires when it's on. If the ignitor is a round style - amperage should be 2.5-3A, if the ignitor is rectangular - 3 - 3.6A. If less than 2.5A or 3A respectively - replace ignitor. If the ignitor does not come on - check the voltage on the ignitor, should be the line voltage 110-120v AC. If there is a line voltage on the ignitor and it's not coming on - replace.
Ignitor part numbers for round style ones: 4342528, WB2X9154, SGR403, 5304401265;
rectangular styles: 12400035, WB13K21, WB2X9998, SGR412, NR020, 5303935066, 814269, 9753108.
Ignitors of the same shape (i.e. rectangular) are interchangeable, if you can splice the wires.

Good luck!

Have a GE gas range. Broiler doesn't work while


First clean the terminals at the control and check for tight wires at the incoming terminal block. Check the neutral wire for a good conection. If the ignitor reads less than 3 amps it does not have enough resistance to open the gas valve. Turn the gas off. Put a clamp on amp meter on the broil ignitor wire. Turn the broiler on. If less than 3 amps.replace the 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.

New igniter, still won't work


Turn on oven. Ignitor should begin to glow. (if no glow after 30 seconds or so, check to make sure you have 120 volts to ignitor) Observe amperage draw using a clamp on amp meter. When amperage reaches 3.2 to 3.6 (for square syle ignitors) the oven safety valve should open, releasing gas and lighting the burner when the gas hits the red hot ignitor. For broiler, just substitute the word broiler for oven. Old ignitors get " weak " and may not draw enough amperage to allow safety valve to open. Also, voltage will affect the amperage draw, as lower voltage = lower amp draw.

Oven wont start


The control sends voltage down to the ignitor, the ignitor glows red, when and if the ignitor gets hot enough it opens the gas valsve to let gas in which is then lit by the ignitor.

If ignitor glows either the ignitor is bad or the oven valve

If the ignitor does not glow then either the ignitor is broken, the control is not sending voltage down, or the oven valve is bad and not sending voltage to the ignitor.

In most cases it is the ignitor which is the cheapest of the three parts

Oven doesn't work


Find the bake ignitor (you may need to remove bottom drawer or oven cavity floor to get to the ignitor). Turn on the bake. If the bake ignitor comes on (starts glowing after a few seconds) - check the amperage on the bake ignitor wires when it's on. If the ignitor is a round style - amperage should be 2.5-3A, if the ignitor is rectangular - 3 - 3.6A. If less than 2.5A or 3A respectively - replace ignitor. If the ignitor does not come on - check the voltage on the ignitor, should be the line voltage 110-120v AC. If there is a line voltage on the ignitor and it's not coming on - replace.
