Broiler igniter voltage proglem

The broiler on our DCS RGS-366 stopped working. A repairman came out, put in a new igniter, and when he turned on the broiler, the igniter got white hot and exploded. Said it was probably a bad igniter. Came back today and put a different igniter in, but found out that it was only getting about 12v. We traced it back to the safety valve - it was only getting 12v there on the broiler side, but the make bake side was getting the full 120v. Can't seem to find the schematics for this range -- does this sound like a problem with the safety valve or is it likely back at the thermostat? Again, the make bake burners and stovetop burners work fine. Thanks in advance for any help/guidance.

SOURCE: Oven not working, but broiler is...

Very well could be. I'm assuming the bake burner is the problem, right? Does the igniter glow at all? If it is glowing, but the burner does not light, is it usually a symptom of an igniter that has become weak. If it does not draw enough current the gas valve will not open and the burner will not light. This is a safety feature to prevent free flowing gas without ignition. If the broil burner is functioning properly, then more than likely the gas valve and regulator are working fine. In most ranges both burners are fed from the same source. You could try swapping igniters between the broil and bake burners to prove the theory. Or, you could just replace the igniter all together. Current readings are as follows: Round shaped glow igniter: 2.7 to 3.2 amps Square shaped glow igniter: 3.2 to 3.7 amps If you can give me the exact model number off your range (usually located around the oven door or on the back of the range) I can give you the correct part number you will need. Most appliance repair stores carry the igniter. I hope this helps you.

SOURCE: Broiler not working, Oven OK

We have a DCS RG-366 SS L, a 36" gas range and the igniter went out. You could smell gas and the igniter would glow red - but no fire across the broiler.

There is a place in Michigan called RepairClinic.com. We bought a replacement igniter from them and it works like a charm. It was $53 (we live close by and didn't have to have it shipped).

The item number (from the invoice) is 1191 and the box the igniter came in looks like it is manufactured by FSP, code 082005, and there is a larger number on the box that says 786324 IGNTR-OVEN.

Hope this helps.

DCS gas oven and broiler that pulses


This sounds a lot like a defective pressure regulator. If you do not have one externally connected, then the internal regulator is faulty. If internal, it shouldn't be too difficult to DIY. Just make sure the pressure rating is the same as the one that has failed.

I have a 15 year old DCS 4 burner gas stove and oven. Slide in. The broiler stopped working today. Is it the broiler or the fan? How much are parts?


the likely cause is the hotsurface igniter has failed. not exactly sure how to check the part but you can check it voltage is getting to the igniter. if you have voltage, it's probably the problem.

Broiler won't ignight - 48" gas range


Hi,
I had the same problem. I'm not a handyman. A repairman came out and had to replace the igniter. Had to order it from Europe, which took about 2 weeks. They get old and crack and don't work after a while, he said.

Help in Replacing broiler igniter DCS RG-486GD


Jeff,
You have to remove the back of the range; the wires plug into the gas valve that controls gas to the broiler.  They detach by pulling on the slip on connector.

Igniter will not shut off on my DCS RGS-366 gas range


Replace the multipoint gas re-igniter, it is a blue unit behind the knobs. This unit detects the flame and stops the clicking. Call Fisher and Paykel (owners of DCS) at 1 888 936-7872, they sell parts for DCS. The old inferior unit is blue and has a whte label. The newer unit has a yellow label.

BROILER WONT COME ON


If your BAKE function works, but the BROIL does not come on, more than likely you have a bad igniter on your broiler. The igniter is a glow bar type that comes in two basic shapes. One is round, and one is square. The round type igniter should draw between 2.7 to 3.2 amps of current to be considered good, while the square type igniter will draw 3.2 to 3.7 amps. The reason it is important to mention this is because, it is not uncommon for an igniter to still glow. and be bad. The igniter is designed to draw the required amount of current in order for the gas valve to open. Once the valve opens, you have ignition. This is a designed safety feature that prevents free-flowing gas from accumulating without ignition. An easy way to check is to remove the broil cover and turn the broiler on to see if you have any activity out of the igniter. If the igniter does not glow at all, a resistance reading can easily determine if the igniter is bad. It should read avery low resistance if good. If the igniter glows, but the gas valve never opens, take a current reading. If you can provide me with your EXACT model number (located somewhere around the oven door/lower drawer opening, or on the back of the range) I can track down a part number for. I hope this information is helpful to you.
