SOURCE: Kenmore Gas Range - burners won't ignite

its possible your gas regulator is bad or the gas line to the ignitor is stopped up look at the line and see if some type of food has blocked the outlet

SOURCE: Older Tappan range oven not lighting.

There is no way to light the oven manually. The gas valve will not open until the oven ignitor draws enough current. But replacing the ignitor will fix ya up.

SOURCE: gas oven makes a fluttering sound when pre-heating and cooking

This is most often due to the ignitor bar aging. With time it draws less current and does not hold the regulator valve open all the way. You can confirm that the regulator is OK if the broiler works. Replacement for nearly all of these ovens is a universal part, about $35 at appliance parts stores, takes 5-15 minutes to change (depending on whether you need to pull the oven out to get to the connector).

Turn on gas oven; it lights, big poof/pop comes; then continues to light and heat properly. How do I stop it from popping? The pop is scary!! GE Spectra Gas Stove/Oven


Hello,

The reason it "POOFS" is because the igniter is slightly weak and some gas enters before it gets lit,this will continue and get worse. To resolve it the igniter would need to be replaced and then as soon as the gas enters it would light it right away without collecting before it lit.

Sears Kenmore Gas oven lights and relights


sounds like dirty nozzle,or not enough air to make combustion, the poof sound is when it builds up with extra gas after flame quits,and re-lights there is a bit of excess gas around igniter.
clean nozzle.altho there is lots of safety percautions built in to stove,MAKE SURE LOTS OF FRESH AIR, AND STOVE AND GAS OFF,when cleaning nozzle.
[could be air intake problem to]
