SOURCE: Oven does not heat but broiler does

The most common cause of this symptom is a defective ignitor. Oven ignitors can glow and allow enough current through to open the oven gas valve but just not produce enough heat to ignite the gas immediately (see the link below).


In that case, replacing the oven ignitor is the usual solution.

SOURCE: No Bake; everything else works

Hi, When you put the oven on bake, can you see the ignitor glowing but get no flame?
Sound like the ignitor might be getting weak and not opening the gas valve. Please let me know if this sounds like the problem.
It is common for the ignitor to go bad. Even if it glows, it can be bad.
Please let me know if I can assist you further.

Viking oven broiler will not ignite


Your gas valve would be my first guess. Is this broiler (and bake ) lit with a glow coil or spark probe that goes (goes click, click, to light)??
If spark probe, you will have to replace either gas valve or spark board.
If glow bar lights the broil but does not glow, then replace glow coil.

Flow plug


even though the ignitor seems to glow bright orange,it still maybe weak,as in not enough current to open the gas valve,an easy test is to just swap out or interchange the broiler ignitor and bake ignitors and see if this takes care of your issue on the lower bake side as most units use the identical ignitor for each upper and lower manifolds and the gas valve supplies both the bake and broiler manifolds depending on which you choose to use bake or broil

Gas broiler and bake over do not work, top burners work.


Could be a board problem or the safety valve. Hard to diagnosis without being there. I'm leaning towards the board if both both burners won't light...hope this helps...

My Kenmore oven wont ignite. The broiler works


The problem is your bake ignitor. The following link explains:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r401858-replacing_oven_igniter_gas_range

The bake and broil oven features each have their own separate igniters and operate independently of one another. That explains why the broiler still works. They are, however, fed from the same gas source. So...the logical conclusion would be to replace your bake igniter (the no glowing is usually a dead give-away).

Replacements can be purchased on line at searspartsdirect.com, appliancepartspros.com, pcappliancerepair.com, or repairclinic.com. Prices can vary amongst sites, so shop around for the best price. The sites I provided to you, I found, tend to offer the best service and prices.

If you have questions along the way, or require addtional service, please let me know. I hope you find this information helpful.

XL44 oven will not work


The fact that the igniter on the broiler actually begins to glow rules out your Electronic Oven Control (EOC) board. Usually when both oven features fail to work the EOC, or wiring, is the culprit. But...in your situation, the broiler igniter glows, but the bake igniter doesn't. You don't see this happen very often, but I believe you may have two bad igniters. The following link explains how to replace an igniter and gives you some theory behind how they operate:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r401858-replacing_oven_igniter_gas_range

Although an igniter glows, it still may be bad. This is usually dependent upon the age of the stove and the frequency of use. Usually, the bake igniter burns out first, because it is used more often. These igniters also grow weak with age. Which means, if they do not draw the required current necessary to open the gas safety valve, you will not have ignition. This is a designed safety feature that prevents free flowing gas from filling the oven box before ignition. I would recommend replacing both igniters to see if this corrects your problem. If you require additional assistance, or have questions, please let me know before you rate the solution. I hope this helps solve your problem.

Oven bake ignites usually have lifetime 5-7 years. If igniter glows but gas not came in - replace igniter. Same with broil igniter.

I am assuming the BROILER works fine in the oven, right? If so, you may have a bad igniter for the BAKE manifold. It is common for them to wear out or become weak. Since the BROILER is not commonly used as much as the BAKE function, the BAKE igniter tends to wear out faster. You can check the igniter by removing the bottom plate of the oven, exposing the BAKE manifold. There will be a glow bar type igniter that begins to glow when the turn the oven on to preheat. If the igniter does not glow...a resistance reading will determine if it still good or not. It should read a low resistance if good. If the igniter glows, but still does not ignite, take a current reading. The igniter will have a current reading of 3.2 to 3.7 amps if good. In either case, if you do not get the desired readings, simply replace the igniter. There are two types of igniters listed under your model number:

Horizontal Mount - Part: #1034629 Price: $44.50
Vertical Mount - Part: #949510 Price: $41.70

This depends on how yours is mounted. Refer to your owners manual to see if there is a parts index listing. I hope this helps you. Post back with comments if I can assist any further.

CAUTION: Make sure you disconnect power from the range BEFORE connecting meter leads to the igniter leads. The igniter connector is usually found under the oven behind the lower drawer. In addition: if you DO purchase a new igniter, use care in handling it. The oil from your hands can potentially damage the igniter coil if you are not careful. This will result in a shorter life expectancy.
