Question about Hotpoint 30" Self-Cleaning Freestanding Gas Range - Black
Sometimes it smells of gas. Sometimes gets hot for a while but cannot sustain it. I can get it hot via Broil, but it won't stay hot once I turn it back to oven. Any ideas?

SOURCE: oven & broiler not working
you ignitor is going out you will need to replace it the ignitor needs to draw a min of 3.2 amps in order to open the gas valve coil if short of this it will not open at thimes it may just have enough to open

Chances are the oven ignitor will need to be replaced. Look and see if it glows. If it does then it is weak and not opening the gas valve to lite. Let me know what you find. Should be able to remove the bottom drawer and unplug the ignitor from below. Or you can cut the wires on the old ignitor and splice the new one in using ceramic

if it's glowing but not igniting the flame in less than 40 seconds you have a lazy ignitor,change it out.open the draw unser the oven door and on the left or right side of frame not the door you'll see a tag with the model and serial number,give your parts store the model number and they'll give you the correct ignitor

More than likely, you have a bad igniter. As the igniters age from repeated use, they can become weak and longer function properly. Just because they glow, does not mean they are good. If you are experiencing ignition problems, the following link explains a little theory about how these igniters work and how to replace one:
The burner manifolds in the oven each use a glow bar or electrode type igniter with a gas safety valve to ignite. Both oven manifolds are controlled by the Electronic Oven Control (EOC) board, which is your clock/timer on the control panel. If the surface burners work, but the oven does not, the problem is usually not a gas related issue. If a single igniter is still working (i.e., the broiler still works), its more than likely NOT a control board issue, either.
Replacement parts (if required) can be purchased at any of the following websites:
Prices vary between these sites, so shop and compare. The first three sites listed also offer helpful exploded view diagrams to help you locate and properly identify the parts you need. If the model number is correct, the part number for a replacement igniter is WB13K21.
NOTE: It is common for the BAKE igniter to require replacement more often than the broiler, due to the frequency of use.
If you have any questions please post back and let me know. I hope this helps you.
