Question about Ovens
To skeeter140: I submitted earlier about my hotpoint oven. The stove burners on top are working and also the broiler burner is working. The glow bar glows red and burner goes on. However the glow bar for the bottom oven burner does not glow red or heat up. Is this electrical discontinuity or do I have a bad glow bar.
I just took out broiler drawer and inspected regulator and all connections on rectangular igniter? They all seem to be okay no broken wires. Also took out lower burner and glow bar assembly no obvious defects. Should I just get another glow bar or is it the rectangular igniter. Again the broiler burner works fine. Is this a common failure on a two year old hotpoint oven?
Thanks for your reply
My oven glowbar stopped working christmas morning. Yesterday we bought a whirlpool brand (igntr-oven #4342528) because it is twenty something dollars cheaper then GE. My husband installed it today. The only difference is you have to splice the wires (it comes with everthing you need) The first time he put it in it did not work because he had the wires backwards. He switched the wires and now its working fine.
My oven is two years old also.
