Oven does not ignite broiler does ignite burners do ignite


the ignitor should pull 2.8 amps or more. it can lite but not release gas. just beacuse it is glowing doesnt mean its good. check amp draw w/ meter if less than 2.8 amps. change it out. if doesnt glow or draw any amps. check to be sure have 120v. then change ignitor.

Oven will not light. igniter is coming on and glowing orange but no gas is coming through the tubing. burners are getting gas however so there is gas coming through the line. Burners light oven doesnt


maybe your oven holes are jam with grease, common in gas operations. If not; you will have to check the oven line (gas) it self , maybe a kink or something like it. Or it may have a solenoid that is not switching on.

Oven doesn't heat up


Hi, Even though your igniter is glowing it's bad..A igniter should glow brillient yellow for it to be able to light the gas...basically whats happening in your case is although the igniter is drawing the correct amps to open the gas valve it is not getting hot enough quick enough to light it..change the igniter and you should be good to go. Good Luck!!! Mike

Oven wont light


Check the amp draw on the ignitor. If 2.9 amps or less, replace the ignitor. If 2.9 amps or more, replace the gas safety valve.

Oven burner doesnt light


Doubt that the glow plug is bad. Gas only needs about 1100 degree F. to ignite using the glow plug method. It really seems as if there may be no gas getting to the burner. If there is no flame, you should be able to smell gas. If there is no gas smell, then I would look for the obvious such as: is the gas turned on?, Does the gas valve on the unit have a safety that is tripped? and so on. A new gas valve may be in order but make sure that it is receiving the proper voltage when the glow plug is on. Lastly, there may be a safety that is malfunctioning. If the unit does not light within a given time, the safety will "Lock Out" the unit so the place doesn't fill up with gas.
Hope this helps and good luck.

Can I still light an oven even if the electric pilot doesnt work


Looks like your oven has a "glow" coil. That being the case, you will not be able to light the oven without power. It has to glow to open the valve, and there is no override for this. Sorry.
About the cord, you could install a plug on the cord, or simply replace the cord. (I realize you say you are trying to get one). Other than this, turkey on the grill is always good.
