    ok replaced the igniter. still not glowing. by looking at the wiring diag. a relay feeds the bake glow bar.

  • scott smith Dec 11, 2012

    could i swap the wire to the broil relay and turn the broil setting on to check if it is in the control panel?

  • scott smith Dec 11, 2012

    swaped the bake and broil wires on the back of the control panel. the broil works off the bake control, but the bake igniter still not working. so is the only thing left would be the control valve not allowing the ground path?

  • scott smith Dec 11, 2012

    the igniter didnt fix the issue. from the wiring diagram the bake and broil igniters run off different relays in the control panel. i swaped the bake and broil wires on the board. the bake relay and circuit works. so is the only thing left in the system is the oven control valve not allowing a ground path?

  • scott smith Dec 12, 2012

    yes it was. found yellow wire from the control panel to the igniter broken near the bottom of the oven.

SOURCE: double oven willnot light

Peace,
ngafm at your service,

It sounds like a bad igniter in that oven or a bad gas valve restricting the gas flow in that particular oven.

Unfortunately this will require hands on service!

How old is this wall oven?

If the appliance is 10 years old or more you may not be advisable to put good money into bad! New appliances are so much more efficient today that they can save you a lot of money in energy!!!!
You need a hands on tech for this repair!

Oven wont light


Check the amp draw on the ignitor. If 2.9 amps or less, replace the ignitor. If 2.9 amps or more, replace the gas safety valve.
