DCS 304 RGA, Igniters ok. 3.9amps, no oven or broiler. No part #

No oven or broiler gas. Igniters read 3.4 and 3.7 amps. not opening gas valve. No part number for this valve anywhere. All top burners work.

Suspect it is the valve. Was trying to find a 305 parts manual. Suspect valve is the same. So far no part # or oem cross.

Did you ever find a solution to this problem? I think my RGA 304 has the same problem, and plan to go looking for that dual valve today... Peter

Amana Gas Range. When using the broiler the igniter will light but the broiler will not come on. What's wrong?


The problem is usually the igniter not reaching the correct amp draw .When the igniter does not reach the correct amp draw it may allow the gas valve to partially open or not open at all. The igniters are inexpensive and easy to replace. This video will walk you thru the correct procedure for testing an oven igniter. It may be a different model but the testing will be the same.You can also enter your model # for diagrams and illustrations of your specific model. Not all models are available. All parts come with installation instructions.

Gas broiler and bake over do not work, top burners work.


Could be a board problem or the safety valve. Hard to diagnosis without being there. I'm leaning towards the board if both both burners won't light...hope this helps...

The range and the broiler work but not the oven itself on the GEXL44


This is a common symptom of a weak igniter. Just because the igniter glows, does not mean it is good. They wear out with age and will not draw enough current to open the gas safety valve. The following link explains a little theory about these igniters and how to replace one:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r401858-replacing_oven_igniter_gas_range

Most ovens have two separate manifolds with two separate igniters. One for bake, and one for broil. However, they use the same gas source. So, if you are able to use your broiler in the oven, you do not have a gas problem. Most commonly, the bake igniter wears out much faster because of the frequency of use.

You can purchase a replacement igniter at any of the following websites:

searspartsdirect.com
appliancepartspros.com
pcappliancerepair.com
repairclinic.com

Prices vary between the sites, so shop around for the best deal.

Read throught the link provided and let me know if you have any questions. I hope this helps you.

Have a GE gas range. Broiler doesn't work while


First clean the terminals at the control and check for tight wires at the incoming terminal block. Check the neutral wire for a good conection. If the ignitor reads less than 3 amps it does not have enough resistance to open the gas valve. Turn the gas off. Put a clamp on amp meter on the broil ignitor wire. Turn the broiler on. If less than 3 amps.replace the ignitor.

Replacing Igniter on Hotpoint RGB528PEAWW Gas Kitchen Range


you should have a broil glow coil at tol and one on bottom. to access the bottom, open the door and look to the back on the oven floor. ther should be a srew one on each side remove and lift bottom up. you should be looking at the glow coil. i would also remove the pan drawer for access.it would be abnormal for bth the broil and bake to fail at the same time. if this is the case i would confirm power is leaving control to the selected glow bar. they shoul pull about 3.2 amps. then i would focus on the valve. which is opened by the amp draw of the bar. one wire on the valve is common and the other feeds from the control through the valve to the glow bar

BROILER WONT COME ON


If your BAKE function works, but the BROIL does not come on, more than likely you have a bad igniter on your broiler. The igniter is a glow bar type that comes in two basic shapes. One is round, and one is square. The round type igniter should draw between 2.7 to 3.2 amps of current to be considered good, while the square type igniter will draw 3.2 to 3.7 amps. The reason it is important to mention this is because, it is not uncommon for an igniter to still glow. and be bad. The igniter is designed to draw the required amount of current in order for the gas valve to open. Once the valve opens, you have ignition. This is a designed safety feature that prevents free-flowing gas from accumulating without ignition. An easy way to check is to remove the broil cover and turn the broiler on to see if you have any activity out of the igniter. If the igniter does not glow at all, a resistance reading can easily determine if the igniter is bad. It should read avery low resistance if good. If the igniter glows, but the gas valve never opens, take a current reading. If you can provide me with your EXACT model number (located somewhere around the oven door/lower drawer opening, or on the back of the range) I can track down a part number for. I hope this information is helpful to you.

Oven not working, but broiler is...


Very well could be. I'm assuming the bake burner is the problem, right? Does the igniter glow at all? If it is glowing, but the burner does not light, is it usually a symptom of an igniter that has become weak. If it does not draw enough current the gas valve will not open and the burner will not light. This is a safety feature to prevent free flowing gas without ignition. If the broil burner is functioning properly, then more than likely the gas valve and regulator are working fine. In most ranges both burners are fed from the same source. You could try swapping igniters between the broil and bake burners to prove the theory. Or, you could just replace the igniter all together. Current readings are as follows: Round shaped glow igniter: 2.7 to 3.2 amps Square shaped glow igniter: 3.2 to 3.7 amps If you can give me the exact model number off your range (usually located around the oven door or on the back of the range) I can give you the correct part number you will need. Most appliance repair stores carry the igniter. I hope this helps you.
