SOURCE: Gas Oven - no flame at Bake Baffle - Glow Bar glows fine

If the glow bar is working (glowing) it is the gas valve. BUT, the glow bar can also actually glow and still not be working 100% and letting enough current through to the valve. You could swap an identical valve out to check it, if you don't have a meter. It's more than likely the valve though.

How do I replace the glow bar for my gas oven?


If this is really a GAS oven, replacing the glow bar is fairly simple. Unscrew it from the mount, pull the special wires out into the oven compartment, unplug them but DO NOT allow the oven's internal wiring to slip back into the hole (! ! !), then plug the new glowbar's wires in exactly as the old ones were plugged in, feed the wiring back into the hole, and screw the new glowbar down using the old screw.

OVEN WILL NOT (GAS) LITE


With the assumption you have a gas range with electric ignition and is fully powered (plugged in); the possible problem may be the "Electric ignitor/Glow bar".

When turning on the oven, do you see a redish (good) or yellowish (not good; replace) glow emitting from the very bottom or the oven/broil area?

There are typically 2 types of electric glow bar ignitors; Round and Square. Ignitors are actually fairly easy to replace, removing 2 mounting screws and cutting/splicing 2 seperate wires together. Is your ignitor "round" (circular - like size of finger ) or "square" (rectangular - like snickers candy bar)

If your ignitor is not coming on at all; this can be a couple things;

Defective Ignitor - Gone completely Bad - Out (Assuming your have full power 110v to ignitor)

Defective Gas Valve - Assist in passing 110V to Ignitor

Defective Control Board / Thermostat: Assist in passing 110V to Ignitor

FYI - As a safety measure, the ignitor needs to "come on and appear solid red" to properly pass power to gas valve; thus opening and allowing gas to pass through the burners and combust.

Broiler works, as do burners. The oven will not come on. Gas whirlpool range 2003 year. Model SF367LEKB


jdelvecchio5Does the igniter (glow bar) come on whenever the bake function is selected.?

If the glow bar does not come on the safety valve will not open - no bake burner. check the electrical harness first then Try changing the igniter (glow bar first) before changing the safety valve/regulator.

The oven doesn't work ,the ignator doesn't light up. no gas coming


The technical jargon is,.....:
In order for your gas oven to work this is what has to happen: 1. when you turn on the oven, the range sends 120 volts to the glow bar igniter. 2. as the igniter heats up (and starts to glow) it starts using more electricity. 3. when the electric use reaches a set amount (say 3.2 amps) the range knows the glow bar igniter is hot enough to ignite the gas, so it then releases gas through the gas safety valve. 4. when the thermostat tells the oven controller that the temperature has been reached, the control cuts power to the igniter, cutting the amp draw down, causing the safety gas valve to close. 5. process repeats to hold oven temp until you turn off oven.

So,..........the solution is:
most likely your oven igniter burnt out. Find your model number, usually on the range frame just behind the lower drawer or broiler drawer (depending on if it is a self clean gas range or not) and order the correct igniter and replace it.
