When the oven is ON, the igniter should stay on.

If the oven is OFF and igniter stays on check the sensor assembly and or flame sensor for continuity.

How to operate cggf3042kfg oven


This gas unit requires the burners to be ignited by holding the knob to ignite on the control panel until the flames arise. Then you can adjust the flames to higher, or lower, heights. Also, the oven should be a simple turn to the temperature wanted and wait approximately 20-30 minutes for a preheat to occur. If this does not happen you are possibly not receiving enough gas to the unit or you have an ignitor concern.

Ka gas range the glow bar comes on but it takes sometimes 15 to 20 min before gas is supplied to burner in oven and finaly ignites


Hi, 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, if it does light the burner, there may be delayed ignition (pop), 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.

The igniter needs to draw between 3.6 and 4 amps to open the gas valve even thogh it is glowing the resistance may not be the same . Check the amperage and then replace igniter

Oven slow to ignite and come to temperature.


Change the igniter.

As they age, they often times will no longer draw enough amperage to allow the gas safety valve to open. Increasing the line voltage would help, but that's a little impractical.

Oven not always working


MOre than likely your igniter is getting weak. If it doesnt pull enough amperage. it shouldnt let gas into the oven. If it is letting in gas and not igniting, I would suggest a new igniter and a new safety valve. Hope this helps!
