Question about Ovens

1 Answer

I was baking something and all of a sudden the lights in our house went dim and our oven glowed bright orange and when I opened it, smoke came out but my food was still uncooked. Now the oven won't heat inside, the convection fan won't work, no light, etc. I still have gas on the top range, but no electronic ignition. This is a 3 year old Jade Oven. HELP!!

    I think our warranty expired in September. Is it too late to get an extension? They sent us an offer a couple of months ago and since we hadn't had any problems, we didn't respond.

Sounds like you had an element burn out and tripped a breaker.

Find the breaker to the oven. If its tripped it should be in the middle position, not "off" they are sometimes easy to mistake for being on.

If you have a volt.ohm meter we can doagnose the problem and confirm if it is the element or not. (90% chance thats it.)

They are fairly easy to replace and usually pretty cheap.
But before you buy parts, make sure if its still under warranty or not. If it is, it could save you some time and money.

    It's probably to late, but it can't hurt to try.

The ignitor should be real bright (hard to look at), if it is dim orange it is weak and a weak ignitor won't open the safety valve. This video explains how it works: Silicone carbide ignition

Oven will not light. it is a frigidaire model #


When the bake igniter becomes weak or burns out, your oven will not bake. The bake igniter is usually mounted on the oven burner. It's about 1 inch by 4-8 inches (depending on the model), and comes in round or flat styles. If you don't see the igniter glow at all, it's probably burned out. Replace the igniter if found defective. Note: one of the exceptions could be that your oven is set to automatic mode instead of manual. If this is the case, set your oven to manual mode and check again.

If the bake igniter glows red and not bright yellow or white, it is probably because it is too weak. When this happens, the safety valve will not let the gas out into the oven burner. A weak igniter must be replaced.

A faulty igniter is probably the most common cause, however there are others:

  1. Defective thermostat
  2. Defective selector switch
  3. Defective gas safety valve
  4. Defective gas valve coils

Broiler on top works but oven wont ignite


OK, it is likley that the oven ignitor isn't working and needs to be replaced. To verify if this is the problem, when you turn on the oven to BAKE and set the temp at say, 350. Watch through the window, (or you can have the door open). Look at the bottom, back, center and see if you see a bright orange glow appearing under the bottom panel.

If you don't, that is why the oven won't lit the gas. There is an ignitor for both the broiler burner at the top and for the bake burner in the oven compartment.

It might be possible that your oven uses the same ignitor for both the broiler and bake burner tubes, so you could swap them if you wish to confirm that is the problem before you go and order/buy a new one.

Sometimes the ignitor burns out half way through but because it still lits/glows, people think it's OK, but it won't get hot enough to signal the gas valve to open and allow gas to ignite and get the oven cooking.
If you want to see a line drawing and a parts list showing the ignitor(s), go to searspartsdirect.com and enter in the model number of your oven and click on the links shown.

Hope this helps and best regards!

Gas oven will not heat.


The main thing that goes out is the ignitor on these stoves. If it appears to be glowing it does not mean a thing. The ignitor gets weak. It should be very bright. if it is a dim orange it is bad.

Electric starter gas oven model jgrp17 won't heat


more than likely your glow bar ignitor has stopped working or at least pulling enough amps to open the safety valve. The floor of the ovens come out may have a couple screws toward the back. take the floor out if a diffuser is on top of the burner remove it. the glow bar ignitor is mounted on the burner turn the oven on and watch it should glow bright red and in about 30 secs open the gas safety valve. If it does not glow you may want to verify power to the ignitor, more than likely the ignitor is the problem. If it glows but does not open the safety valev still replace the ignitor not pulling the required amps to open the safety valve. just put a little dish soap on the screws to the ignitor to help from srtripping them out
