    The oven takes forever to heat up ( The gas oven burner doesn't turn on) so I put the broiler on to heat up the oven and when it's about 300 degrees I put the oven on and eventually the oven burner will kick on. It sucks (model number Amana ARGS7650WW)

I have an Amana AGR5715QDS and when I turn it on and set it for any temperature, lets say 350 degrees, it does not turn on or heat up. The stove top burners still work fine and the door appears to be OK,...


Hi. This sounds like a weak igniter, the symptoms usually are: burner won't light, or takes longer than normal to ignite the burner, may or may not smell gas in the oven, does not maintain set temperature or burner does not come on fully. On gas ovens, a glo igniter is like a light bulb, the more you cook, the faster it wears out. Bottom line, needs to be replaced. Good luck.

Our oven doesn't heat and smells like gas


This sounds like a weak igniter, it would have to be a gas oven and the symptoms usually are: takes longer than normal to ignite the burner, may or may not smell gas in the oven, does not maintain set temperature or burner does not come on fully, eventually won't heat at all. On gas ovens, a glo igniter is like a light bulb, the more you cook, the faster it wears out. Bottom line, needs to be replaced. Good luck.

My Amana gas oven won't heat up gas smell strong


Sounds like a sticking gas valve or a defective hot surface igniter. Open the broiler drawer or remove the bottom cover in the oven compartment. The oven usually has a hot surface igniter or a spark igniter. Turn on the oven and watch for the hot surface igniter to start glowing. It should glow very bright. Once it is glowing the burner gas should come on. If you hear the gas come on it should light right away. If there is any delay shut off the oven and stay back. Let the gas clear out then inspect the area near the igniter and make sure the burner is not plugged(the little holes may have debris in them). If you turn on the oven and the igniter comes,glows brightly,no gas is heard but you can smell gas it is either a blocked burner orfice/assembly or sticking gas control valve. Try giving the burner and gas control valve a tap and see if it comes on. If you tap the control valve and it starts working then shut of the oven and try it several times. If it starts to come on and off now you may have cleared whatever debris was causing the problem. If it does it again then it could be the control valve or a weak hot surface igniter. The igniter can be tested with a ohm meter. Most of the time when I get this complaint it is the oven control valve that is sticking. Be very careful when doing these procedures....gas can build up in the oven compartment very quicky and flash if ignited. Always have the gas shut off valve at the back of the range within reach and the electrical outlet in case you need to unplug it.

Amana oven gas leak issue


staunch has no idea what he is talking about. It has nothing to do with the igniter, or it would fire up at all. Since you are saying that your oven does ignite and heat up, it is the internal gas valve that is the problem.

The way all recent (20 year at least) are designed, the gas valve internally can not open unless the igniter is working, for obvious reasons ... boom! The igniter circuit allows the gas valve to open, once it detects that the igniter is ready to "ignite" a gas flow. BUT, the valve can be bad in the AMOUNT of gas being delivered. Your's is allowing too much gas, more than can be burned, hence the smell.

DON'T use the oven until you have a qualitifed tech come out and replace the valve. It is very dangerous for you to do it yourself.
