    I have a similar problem however cannot hear the ignitor clicking. When I tried the broil function the top element comes on but the oven doesn't light and the ignitor doesn't click. Any ideas on how to fix this if it is a problem with the ignitor for the lower burner?

Try using the 'broil' function to see if the upper burner will operate. If is does, the ignitor for the lower burner may have failed causing the range to keep the gas supply shut off to prevent an explosion.

The oven turns its self ON every 20 to 45 mins. The electric ignition glows and the gas comes on and burns for about 30 to 60 secs then turns off. The oven control knob is turned OFF. There are no aut


Seems to me you have a defective control panel board.. Ovens should never do this. Time for the Serviceman right away, this could be dangerous if you are not home.

Whirlpool SF315PEK oven pilot seems Ok but gas in oven wil not light. How do I check that the gas is flowing or if it needs to be adjusted?


Hello,
If what your experiencing with the oven is that the oven igniter glows but their is no flame,the cause of that is going to be because the igniter is weak and not getting hot enough to open the gas valve and allow the gas to flow. I know it seems improbable that since the igniter glows that it's the problem but i tell ya with 100 assiduity that's exactly what the problem is. Replacing the igniter will fix your oven.

Thermostat seems ok, but gas won't flow from oven burner.


Hi, Even tho the ignitor is glowing, it is getting weak and will need replaced. The ignitor is not pulling enough amps to open the gas valve.
This is very common problem with the gas ovens.
If I can assist you further, please let me know.

Maytag gas oven won't light


After moving my oven out of the room to lay a floor, the oven wouldn't work when I put it back. Everything else worked (top burners, broiler).
I spent much time here and elsewhere on line trying to get enough knowledge to at least diagnose the problem, if not fix it. There is nothing worse than not knowing what is wrong when the repair guy comes, because you are then at their mercy, and some of them are less than merciful!
I took it apart, observed how the broiler worked, and assumed logically that the oven should work similarly.
The igniter on the bottom/oven part seemed slightly further away from the gas tube than the broiler igniter did. I just touched it and it moved!
As it turned out, the bracket that holds it in place had become jarred when I moved it, and had moved almost imperceptibly away from the gas tube.
This tiny difference was enough that the ignition didn't take place. Instead, after 4 clicks, the igniter shut off, a safety issue built into it, I suppose.
I attached the igniter to the gas tube with wire, readjusted and tightened the clamp, and Bob's your uncle, i have my oven back!
So, I guess the 'tip" is to simply make sure the igniter is close enough to the gas tube to actually ignite the gas.
As any repairman will tell you, the order to check things out in should always start with the simplest thing first!

Tappan gas kitchen oven will not heat


Almost always a weak oven igniter. Remove oven floor by removing 2 screws at rear of floor. Remove flame spreader from burner, if it has one. Turn on oven and see if igniter gets red. It's the caged thing on burner tube. If it does but doesn't light gas, replace igniter. UNPLUG UNIT FIRST!!
Put dishwashing soap on threads of 2 screws holding igniter in place. This will allow it to come out easier. Do-not use oil. It will make your oven smell like a diesel truck.
Remove screws. You will have to remove drawer in front. Underneath you can fin wires from igniter. These will be cut at igniter and connected to igniter with enclosed wire nuts. The 2 wires to igniter go either way.
