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.

HAYWARD H400 NG I REPLACED THE IGNITOR THE HEAT LIGHT COMES ON FOR ABOUT 15 SEC. AUDIBLE CLICK IN UNIT SO I BELIEVE IT IS TRYING TO IGNITE BUT NO GAS FLOW ? GAS IS ON ON VALVE AND SOURCE


Thank you for posting your question here on Fixya.com.


You will need a monometer to check gas pressure before and after the valve and a voltmeter to check for voltage at the valve.

Hook up the monometer and watch for pressure drop during the ignition phase. If it does and the heater won't light your problem is in the ignitor or control board. If it does not your problem is the board or the valve.

Check for voltage at the gas valve to confirm if the valve or the board is the problem.

If you are unfamiliar with these tools you should call a professional. You are working in a potentially dangerous environment.

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.

Not heating during drying. everything else works


There are 3 things to turns on the heat. The ignitor, the thermal sensor, The gas valve. The ignitor has to glow first when you start. if it doesn't then it has a problem right there. After the ignitor comes on, and the thermal sensor has to produce some voltage so the gas valve can open to fire a flame then the heat will start. If the thermal sensor is bad, valve can't open then the ignitor will shut down, hence there is no heat.Taking the back panel off and try look to see the ignitor when you start so you can diagnose it correctly. Good luck

RHEEM RGLE-10EQAGS Gas Furnace - Intermitent. Fans come on, Hot surface Ignitor comes on, then sometimes Gas Valve opens and all is fine, Other times, gas valve doesn't open and Hot surface Ignitor goes...


The sequence is Igniter comes on, valve comes on, flame sensor senses flame. If no flame is sensed after 3 tries, a lockout occurs. If you have a volt meter, check for 24-27 Volts AC coming to the gas valve, if your getting voltage to the valve but no gas, your gas valve is defective. It could be a intermittent problem, no matter, still a bad valve. if no voltage to valve, defective circuit board.

Goodman gmpn100-4 ignitor lights, burners don't ignite


1 blink is ignition failure
without being able to do voltage checks
i would reccomend checking your igniotor, if you can put an amp meter on it, it should read 2.6-3.4 amps
if you cannot do that, Or check voltages I woudl repalce the igniotor, gas valves do go bad but very few and far between....
at the risk of a bad rating you deserve at least an answer...
if i were called to your house with this complaint I woul not bother comming with out the ignitor
just because the igniotr looks likes its hot,, it may not be hot enough to safely open the gas valve

Thermador Gas Range - Griddle ignition will not spark


I have a Thermador Gas Range PG364GDBS - Oven, 4 burners, and center griddle. All are gas. The four burners and gas oven work fine. The griddle just stopped working, no spark. Turning on the griddle control, the gas valve opens(hear it), gas flows (smell it), but the ignitor will not spark (no loud or faint spark that I can hear). I got a replacement ignition device (mount at the burner) thinking it might be the problem, but still no spark. I checked the AC voltage at the terminal and measured 39 VAC between the terminal and ground. Not sure if that is the correct voltage. Any insights or advice would be great.

Top oven bake igniter comes on, but gas does not.


Check the voltage on the 2 wires going to the oven gas valve. If you get 120v when the ignitor is on with no gas coming out, you have a bad gas valve. If you get voltage, but it is not much, it is the ignitor. The ignitors don't burn out completely on the ovens, they just get a little dim and no longer ignite the gas and eventually will not turn on the gas valve

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
