is this electric or gas? if it is gas and a newer model it has an ignitor that heats up that will then ignite the gas burner, the ignitor is bad or you may need to inspect and clean the gas ports on the burner as they can get cloged up over time, try the inspection and cleaning first. If it doesnt appear to be cloged then turn on the oven and watch the ignitor, if it doesnt heat up to be white hot then it is bad or going bad and should be replaced. if it is electric check to see if the heating element is working by turning the oven on and watch for it to glow red hot, if it doesnt then it will need to be replaced.
gas range oven may prove useful for cooking and baking, they may fail
to ignite if they aren't properly maintained and set up. Lighting a gas
range often involves simply turning a knob; however, blockages from food
particles and debris caught in the burners, improper burner cap
installation and gas supply are common problems that interfere with your
gas range oven's performance. A few troubleshooting guidelines may
solve these problems safely.
Check you have gas in your tank if your gas range oven won't heat. Contact your gas supplier if you've run out of gas.
Clean the burners if you have gas but your burners still
won't ignite. To clean the burners, lift the burner caps
Inspect the small vertical holes on the side of your burners
for dirt, food and debris. The gas won't ignite if they are clogged.
Scrape dirt, debris and food from the vertical holes using a pointy
object such as a toothpick or paperclip.
Reinstall the burner caps properly. If they are tilted or
wobbly, the gas may not ignite. Install the caps on the right burners.
Some burners are smaller than others, so match the caps to the
Move the burner knob to the "Lite" position and wait for the
gas to ignite. If it ignites, rotate the knob to your desired setting.
If it doesn't ignite, contact a qualified appliance technician.
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, 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 bake ignitor has failed.Turn off the gas supply. Remove the racks. Then remove the bottom pan cover in the oven to access the ignitor. Place a amp meter on one wire of the ignitor.Turn the BAKE switch on. If it reads less than 3 amps,replace the ignitor.
hi atdowhower,for your oven to heat the[ignitor]must heat up enough to open the oven safty valve.this happens by the ignitor drawing enough amprage thru the safty valve.just because it glows it may not be strong enough.or if you see no glow it may have a broke coil in that ignitor and wont glow at all.you wll need an volt meter to check if no glow.if soft glow,replace ignitor.shoul be very brite.God bless,tom
your ignitor could be going out. the ignitor has to get hot enough in order for the gas to turn on and heat your oven. if your ignitor is going out, sometimes it doesn't glow hot enough for the gas to turn on, or it could be that is takes longer than normal to get hot enough to turn the gas on. I would replace the ignitor and that should solve the problem. Joe
