DCS range igniter problem

One of the igniters on our 5 burner, 3 year old DCS range won't fire. All we get is the sweet smell of gas. The dial for this burner also fails to illuminate when turned. Thanks

SOURCE: oven in DCS gas range doew not turn on

Well some of the older ones have a unit that is sorta like a pilot light which keeps you safe by not letting out gas before it ignites so as to not blow up. This macanism is probably bad. I use to replace them on Tappan ovens. They would last a couple of years and then would go out and to replace them then was about $80.00. Easy to do. They are usualy located inside the oven somewhere and look like a glass eye on one end with a small 1/4 inch gas line connecting to the other end.

Actually Dave, when you turn on one burner, all of the igniters do fire. This is normal. Perhaps you never noticed it before. regards, Joe

SOURCE: DCS Range constant sparking at all burners even when lighting one

This happens to mine if there is anything on any of the burners, such as food residue or moisture. Check all the burners to see that nothing is touching the burner area where the gas jets are. Even a little water can make this happen.

SOURCE: DCS 4 burner plus griddle Range..oven doesn't heat

This happened to my DCS when the Hot Wire Relay went out. It isn't an expensive part, but finding someone that knows what needs to be replaced, and then can replace it is hard. My oven also did the opposite and continued to heat without shutting off, and it was once again the hot wire relay.

I have a WFG381LVQ stove that is 3 years old. The stove top burners work but the oven will not ignite. I see the spark, smell gas but it will not ignite. Is it possibly the gas valve?


no if you smell gas it is not the valve, in bottom of oven you open the lower drawer, there you should be able to see if there is something in the way of the burner, most people put lids in the bottom, remove all from bottom and try to see if burner will come on

Oven will not turn on. the gas burners are working. i don't smell gas, however, the oven will not heat up. any suggestions? we've had this range for about 5 years, and this is the first problem we've had...


the gas oven is ignited by a small electric element that glows red at a pre-set current it opens the gas valve and ignites the gas 9/10 times its as simple as replacing the igniter. the other 1 is a gas valve or the themostat control or a board ...try the igniter first cheap "relatvily" easy and you can probably do it your self ( if you are so inclined) Good Luck turn off the gas turn off the electricity and work carefully

My oven won't heat up and just smells like gas but my stove burners work


Hello, This is going to be a problem with your igniter/glow bar. Over time these get old and although you may see it glowing iit still may be bad. Your igniter should glow a brillient yellow and should ignite the gas within 15 seconds of the valve opening. If you have any other questions or concerns please feel free to comment again...Good Luck! Mike

Dcs 48" gas range igniter comes back when set on low/simmer


This is not a solution but something to think about for troubleshooting.
On the DCS there are two ports that feed gas to the burner.
One for high flame and one for simmer.
On the DCS if the flame is snuffed out on simmer it will automatically reignite.
So if the igniter will not shut off while on simmer, the sensor is bad and is trying to reignite the burner.

Electric igniters dont shut off


Remember to turn the control knob past the "LITE" setting once the burner fires.
If that is not the issue you have one or more defective spark switches.
Each valve has its own switch wired in series with the others.

Broiler not working, Oven OK


We have a DCS RG-366 SS L, a 36" gas range and the igniter went out. You could smell gas and the igniter would glow red - but no fire across the broiler.

There is a place in Michigan called RepairClinic.com. We bought a replacement igniter from them and it works like a charm. It was $53 (we live close by and didn't have to have it shipped).

The item number (from the invoice) is 1191 and the box the igniter came in looks like it is manufactured by FSP, code 082005, and there is a larger number on the box that says 786324 IGNTR-OVEN.

Hope this helps.

Igniter will not shut off on my DCS RGS-366 gas range


Replace the multipoint gas re-igniter, it is a blue unit behind the knobs. This unit detects the flame and stops the clicking. Call Fisher and Paykel (owners of DCS) at 1 888 936-7872, they sell parts for DCS. The old inferior unit is blue and has a whte label. The newer unit has a yellow label.
