Question about Kitchen Ranges
Hello, I have had this Gas Range for over ten years now. It has been working fine. Two years ago I had to replace the ignitor for the oven since it was not working properly. As of yesterday, when I set the oven on bake (default to 350) it starts the timer for 10 mins as usual to get the oven to this temperature. I can see that the ignitor goes on and becomes incandescent, but the gas never seem to flow to actually start the oven. The temperature in the oven goes up a bit, but that is just the resistor that is warming up the space and not actual oven. I don't get any error messages on the console on the top. II would greatly appreciate any help. Sincerely Luca

I just had my ignitor replaced. The ignitor glowed but it must pull a certain amount of amps before it will allow the gas valve to open. Once the ignitor starts glowing the gas should come on within 30 seconds. Now that I saw it done I realize it was something I could have done myself. Be sure the tech does not try to slip you a used ignitor as mine tried.

You need to replace the oven ignitor. This is located under the bottom pan of the oven. Take out the racks and then remove the 2 screws from the back section of the lower plate. Then you will find the ignitor. The ignitor may still get red but the ignitor has to draw enough current to open the gas valve. This is a very common problem. Replace the ignitor and this will fix your problem.

Sounds like that ignitor is weak. When the ignitor glows it builds up resistance to the gas valve for gas to come in. If it sometimes takes 10 min then the proper resistance isn't there and this will give you that gas smell. Replace the ignitor and this should solve your problem. Can expect to pay $80 - $100 for the part.

I have the same problem intermittently on my Super Cap 465. After reading the following quote from another site, "There have been cases where radio waves, electronic signals and sometimes something as strange as dimmers in lights have caused some weird problems with some computer panels in stoves like these", I tried turning off lights that might be on the same circuit and wouldn't you know it, the oven igniter circuit worked.
