My stove works and so does my broiler. I replaced

My stove works and so does my broiler. I replaced the ignitor for the oven but it still does not even glow. when you turn on the broiler you here a click in the console and the ignitor starts to turn orange in approx. 10 to 15 seconds. When I turn on the stove i here a click but it sounds a little hollow and the ignitor never turns orange.

If you use a multimeter, you can test the gas valve where the white and yellow wires connect is where your terminals for bake on that valve are. If you have continuity there, then check to make sure that igniter is wired ok.

MY MAYTAG OVEN WILL NOT TURN ON WHEN I SET THE ELECTRONIC DIGITAL THERMOSTSTAT LIKE SAY I PROGRAM IT TO 350 DEGREES,,, NOTHING HAPPENS,,, BUT WHEN I GO TO SET THE BROILER THE BROILER WORKS JUST FINE,,, I...


First I want to commend you for your giving us good information to start with!
So-- we know we have gas, and we know the Broiler Valve and ignitor works-- Good observation!

However-- we have no ignitor (No bright red/Yellow glow)-- like you go for the Broiler-- right?

Well, we can NOT get ignition on the main burner-- unless we have the ignitor for the main burner getting hot, and then the gas valve to that burner can light, and give you heat...

Soo-- Likely we have an ignitor failure for the Main burner---

Do you have a warranty on the stove?
Do you have a service person qualified to tackle this job?
There will be electrical work, and parts obtainment issues to deal with now---
I suggest you call the local service people for this stove, and tell that that you need to have the main gas burner ignotor replaced for this stove model number-- and see what they tell you.

Let me know if I can help more--

Amana arg7800ww oven will not come up to temperature.


Your gas valve has a thermocouple circuit that will not let gas flow until the ignitor is hot enough. A failed ignitor can still glow but not be hot enough to open the gas valve. Replace your ignitor.

Kenmore oven and broiler do not work


Hi and welcome.
Just because you see a glowing ignitor that does not mean it is "good". You need to check the circuit amperage to be sire. Weak ignitor are ultra-common for the appliance technician to see. The minimum amperage required to open the gas valve is around 2.9 amps. if you have access to an amprobe, read the amperage draw thru one of the ignitor's lead and you will see very quickly if it is good or not. Bad oven valves are much less likely than a weak ignitor. Many do-it-yourselfers replace the oven valve because they see the ignitor is glowing and assume that the ignitor must be good.

Hope this helps.
