When the ignitor glows brightly and the oven doesn't light it is usually a defective ignitor. The way to know if the ignitor is good or bad is to read the amp draw of the ignitor with an amp or watt meter. The gas valve and the ignitor are wired in series and for the gas valve to draw the current the ignitor has to draw 3.5-3.8 amps.If the ignitor is drawing 3.5-3.8 amps the new gas valve is defective. If it is drawing less amps the ignitor is defective.

JGB900 oven won't work. Range top works, broiler works. No glow in oven. Regulator is on.


Your problem is with the oven ignitor. Remove the racks from the oven, remove bottom shelf. Remove the metal plate covering flame spreader. The igniter should now be visible. Turn oven on and watch the glow from the igniter. It will come on but it wouldnt get too bright, so it wouldnt open the gas valve. After changing the ignitor, oven should light.

Gas stovetop works but oven will not come on. Digital display shows that it is on but the oven does not come on.


sounds like you have a bad gas ignitor. It is under the bottom plate and sits on the burner and is held in with 2 1/4 inch screws.8273075 should be the part number for your ignitor....the model number you gave is incomplete so it's hard to tell but hopefully that will help you out

Gas unit, top burners light, but oven will not light?


The oven uses an electric igniter which needs to come on and heat before the gas valve will open. You can reach the igniter by removing the oven bottom (remove a couple of screws and lift it out) and then removing the baffle plate (one screw holds it). When you turn on the oven you should see the igniter glow if it's working correctly. If it doesn't, check it for visible breaks or test with an ohmmeter. A very high or infinite resistance means it's bad. If the igniter glows but no gas flows, the main valve would be suspect. A number of vendors online have parts available.

Remove the bottom of the oven you will see 2 screws in the back. once you do that there is a flame baffel on top of the burner held on my one screw. remove that. now turn the oven on and watch to see if the glow bar comes on. I would say it wont or if it dose it is to weak to open the gas valve. Replace the glow bar and you will be back in business. the glow bar is a ware item everytime theoven is on and is heating the glow bar is on . good luck
