It is located right in front of the first burner off to the side ever so much. When I say first burner as you are looking at it take your right hand and reach out when looking at unit with top cover off. Is that enough so you can locate the item?

DRYER TURNS NO HEAT TRIED CHECKIN VENT,FLIPPING BREAKER STILL NO HEAT.CANT OPEN GE DRYER DVL223GB 2WW TO CHECK ELEMENTS


Have you checked the ignitor in the unit yet by doing an ampere test to the ignitor? Usually an ignitor will draw between 3-3.3 amps. If a reading was lower then this it would mean that the ignitor is either weak or not working. Part number 1374 is the ignitor shown in this diagram click here http://c.searspartsdirect.com/lis_png/PLDM/G0306513-00005.png . Even if the ignitor were at 2.9 you would still replace the ignitor because this would constitute a weak ignitor as well. If you perform the test and the ignitor shows a positive reading message me back for further diagnosis. And if you have any further questions message me back those as well. Please also remember when our chat has fully concluded to rank how this opinion has helped in your appliance situation Thanks Rick

I have a Spectra XL44 gas oven. The stove and broil work fine but the oven will not lite the ignitor doesent even try to lite up or anything. Do you think the ignitor just needs to be changed or may there...


most likely it's just a bad ignitor,remove the ignitor and check it with a meter to be sure but it's common for the ignitor to go so i'd say install anew ignitor and you should be all set.

When i try to bake on my jenn air we have no flame on lower gas tube. But starter element is glowing red .No gas getting to gas tube?


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.
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!

How do I tell if the thermostat is bad or the ignitor is bad for my GE oven JGBS07 EV1WW


The way to tell for sure is to take an ohm reading on both and a current reading on the ignitor. The thermostat should read 0 ohms when calling for heat. The ignitor should read some resistance but not an open circuit. The current draw through the ignitor should be about 3.2 Amps, any less means it is too weak to open the gas valve.

If you do not have meters try these checks.

If the ignitor glows at all then the thermostat is good. If the ignitor does not glow at all it could be either the thermostat or the ignitor,

If you can see the ignitor close up sometimes you can see a white spot on it or a crack, this means the ignitor is bad.

If you have to guess which one the smart money is on the ignitor being bad

No problem, just trying to find out what the amp draw is for this ignitor. Current ignitor pulls 4 amps, trying to cut down on usage in every way I can.Honeywell Q3200U ignitor


Because the ignitor uses resistance to heat up, it will use that much amperage only for a short period of time. A pilot light will cost you more than the pennies per year you spend on electricity.

Ignitor keeps sparking not wet or dirty even when no burner on


Will most probably be a problem with your ignition box. If you want to test this try taking off the hob by undoing the screws under the burners, be very careful with these however as it is very easy to strip the thread on them, once you have the hob off try unplugging the ignitor that keeps sparking and swapping where its plugged into the ignition box with another ignitor. These ignitor can be plugged into any plug in the box so no worries there. If the ignitor keeps sparkings in another hole its the ignitor. If the new ignitor sparks its the ignition box. It will most probably be the ignition box. Is a common fault

Problem with getting burner to light.


All my ignitors spark when I turn one of them on. I'v been told it is normal. I had a problem before and the tech that replace the ignitor said the issues is with alignment. Try to rotate the burner a bit left or right and see if it fixes it.

Maytag MGR5775QDW won't bake


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.
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!
