Was it the correct igniter.almost always the ge ignitors are round.this is how it works.the ignitor pulls enough current thru it to garentee that their is a good source of ignition 4 the gas to leave the oven safty valve.to meaurse the value of the ignitor you need an amp probe.you would meaurse a good ignitor at about3.2to3.5 amps a strong ignitor will glow very,very brite

You probably have a bad gas valve, part # WB21T10014, unless the new igniter is defective. If your broil works, you can prove this by temporarily hooking the broil igniter in the bake spot. Hope this helps!

KENMORE GAS STOVE OVEN , how to check if power is coming to the ignitor


The oven burner igniter
commonly known as the hot surface igniter is used in modern gas oven burners to open the gas valve and to ignite the gas. As the igniter draws electric current it will heat to a high temperature and glow, as well as cause the bi-metal in the oven safety valve to warp and open the valve releasing the gas to be ignited. This sequence normally takes about a minute. Igniters come in both flat and round styles and are very fragile. If the burner does not light then you should check the igniter first. If the igniter does not glow at all, then check for power to the circuit. This is a live voltage check and should be performed by a qualified person. If power is present then the igniter may be open circuit and can be checked for continuity with a multi-meter. If the igniter is glowing, but the burner is not lighting, the igniter may be weak and still be at fault because it requires a certain amount of current draw to open the valve. This check requires the use of an amp meter and should be performed by a qualified person. If the igniter is defective then it must be replaced.

My oven will not heat up in the "bake" mode. It


Thank you for posting your question. What your describing is a bad bake igniter. When an igniter has failed you can usually see it glow but no heat. Sometimes this igniter will go out completely and you will not see a glow at all. When the igniter is working correctly it glows very hot and when ready it draws amps and sends a single to the gas valve to release gas to ignite a flame. The failed igniter part is affordable to fix and can be purchased at any appliance parts store or online. Be sure to have your model number handy and mention you need a bake igniter.
Take a look at this link it has a picture of the igniter you need #13

I will include steps to replacing your igniter and which should save you money on this repair.
  1. Unplug the range
  2. Take out racks
  3. Remove bottom cover of oven removing any screws associated
  4. Disconnect the burner plate
  5. Disconnect manifold tube with igniter attached and lay on its side
  6. Snip the 2x wires connecting the igniter about 2in in link
  7. Unscrew 2x screws holding igniter and replace and install new igniter
  8. Prep. wires and use ceramic wire nuts to connect wires.
  9. Reinstall all components
Retest the unit. New igniter will take a little longer to ignite that is normal.

Oven does not light igniter glows but no flame


This happens when an oven igniter (glow bar) is bad. The igniter must draw enough amps to turn on the gas to ignite the flame. If you have a square shaped igniter use this part#5303935066 If your have a round shaped igniter use part#wb2x9154. These igniter will pretty much work universally for most gas ranges or ovens.
  1. Remove the racks
  2. Unplug unit
  3. Take out the screw holding the bottom pan
  4. Remove screws holding manifold where igniter is attached
  5. Remove manifold cut wires about 2in link from igniter and clean leads.
  6. Unscrew and remove igniter
  7. Replace Igniter with new one and fasten onto manifold
  8. Clean wires and screw on ceramic nuts to wires
  9. Tuck wires back and Reinstall all components
Test your new igniter. You might notice it taking a little longer to light up but that is okay.
Please let me know if this was helpful by rating me a 4.
Thanks so much have a great weekend.

Gas oven not lighting


Hi the problem here is the igniter. Take the floor of the oven out and then the flame spreader. The igniter will be located at the back of the burner. Set the oven for 350, if the igniter does not light then test it with an ohms meter it should read continuity. If it reads open you should replace it. If the igniter does glow it still could be bad, the igniter should glow bright yellow to the point you can't look at it. If the igniter glows orange/yellow it is bad you will need to replace it. If you have any other questions please feel free to comment. Mike

Ka gas range the glow bar comes on but it takes sometimes 15 to 20 min before gas is supplied to burner in oven and finaly ignites


Hi, this sounds like a weak igniter, it would have to be a gas oven and the symptoms usually are: takes longer than normal to ignite the burner, may or may not smell gas in the oven, if it does light the burner, there may be delayed ignition (pop), does not maintain set temperature or burner does not come on fully, eventually won't heat at all. On gas ovens, a glo igniter is like a light bulb, the more you cook, the faster it wears out. Bottom line, needs to be replaced. Good luck.

Oven won't light. Broiler will ignite and


I don't know how new or what brand your oven is, but chances are you have a bad igniter the bottom burner. It is a small element attached to the burner that should glow red hot when you turn your oven on to ignite the gas. This is the most commment setup and problem. You will have to remove the bottom tray (there are usully 2 finger screws holding it in) to see it. It should look something like this:
http://www.theignitorstore.com/product/306602/range_oven_igniters

If you turn the oven on and nothing happens, turn it back off. You can disconnect the igniter, connect a multimeter set to volts AC, turn back on and check for voltage (120 AC) Don't let any bare wire ends touch the oven or you. If you have power there, its the igniter.

Just get the model number off your oven to look up the proper replacement. Replaces with 2 screws. Make sure it mounts close to the burner. It should only take a couple seconds after you hear the gas turn on to ignite. Hope this helps.

I replaced what I thought was a bad igniter.But still had no glow from new igniter. Must be something else.Where do I go from here?


Hello there: The oven bake burner and ignition components are located beneath the oven cavity. In most cases the oven bottom panel can be removed for access (check your owner's manual) but on some models the oven burner has to be accessed from below in the warming or broiler drawer area. If accessing from the top, a 'flame spreader' (flat metal plate) above the burner may also need to be removed to see the burner itself.Many ovens use a single oven burner in which case they only have a single gas valve and ignitor. The same burner is used for both bake and broil functions, the broil usually being in the drawer area below the oven. Higher-end models may have a separate bake and broil burner. On such a system there will be two ignitors, one for each burner. They may also employ a 'dual' gas valve (see illustration above) instead of using a separate valve for each burner.Some range models may have an additional broil burner located at the top of the oven cavity which may be referred to as a 'waist high' broil. If not, broiling usually takes place in the drawer area below the oven, which uses the same bake burner for the broil function. Most gas ranges currently available employ one of 3 basic gas ignition systems; pilot ignition, hot surface ignition system (which uses a 'glow bar' or 'glow coil' - aka an "ignitor") and a spark ignition system. The latter two being referred to as "electronic ignition" systems as they use electricity in one form or another to operate the oven heating system. Only the pilot ignition system has an actual "pilot" (which is a small but real "flame") which might need manual lighting.
If the surface burners of a range are a spark ignition type, the oven IS one of the possible kinds of electronic ignition systems and thus will not usually have a "pilot" which needs lighting. Be aware though that just because the surface burners might light via a spark doesn't necessarily mean the oven uses the spark type ignition system too.
There is one older style of electronic ignition system which does also use an oven pilot but it is very rare and such a system hasn't been used in oven models since the early to mid 70's. It is the 'constant pilot' *electronic ignition* system.


Making Observations
The oven burner's operation will usually need to be directly observed while in operation as the first step to troubleshooting problems.Ignition System Type Links
Ignition System Types:
  • Pilot Ignition
  • Electronic Ignition with Constant Pilot (rare)
  • Electronic Ignition with Glow Ignitor (most common)
  • Spark Ignition System

  • Is there continuity between the oven gas valve's terminals?


    Hot Surface ('Glow Bar') Ignition System (most common)
    This is the most popular system currently used for ovens and is comprised of a control mechanism (whether thermostat or electronic control), the oven ignitor and an oven gas valve.


    What happens in this style ignition system is that the thermostat or electronic control switches power to the oven ignitor and gas valve circuit which are connected in series (one after the other). As power flows through the ignitor it heats and draws current (measured in amperage). Once the oven ignitor draws a specific amount of current the oven valve opens to allow gas to flow to the oven burner where the glowing hot ignitor (glow bar) ignites it. Power must continually flow through the ignitor and oven gas valve for gas to be released into the oven burner to create a flame.

    It should usually only take in the area of 30-90 seconds for the oven ignitor to reach the proper resistance to allow the proper amperage to reach the gas valve to open it and for the ignitor to ignite the gas at the oven burner.

    How do you light the oven? We turn the dial and


    I take it the range is electric ignition because you say the top burners have a clicking(igniter) noise. If the top burners are electric ignition then the oven is also. The oven probably uses a hot surface igniter and that is why you do not hear any clicking. Turn the oven on and open the broiler compartment. You should see a bright glow from the hot surface igniter. If you do not see any glow there may be a grounding issue or the igniter could be bad. If you do see a glow but the burner does not come on in a few minutes then give the gas valve a tap with a wrench and see if the burner comes on. Shut it off and then back on several times. If the burner continues to light after this you may have fixed the problem. If it does not come on gas valve could be sticking or igniter is weak.

    The lower oven ignighter does not glow


    I had the same problem and swapped the oven igniter with the broiler igniter and the oven now works. This proved the oven igniter itself was the fault, now I have to replace the broiler igniter with a new one(which is much easier to get to).

    FYI: An igniter may glow red and still not allow the oven to work. The igniter has to draw a certain amount of electrical current for the main gas valve to open.
