SOURCE: THE OVEN WILL NOT HEAT

How old is the unit? Sometimes the igniter can glow but if it isn't drawing the right amount of power to open the gas valve then that is the safety that is built into the oven... So unless the power requirement is meant gas valve will not light. Even though the hot surface igniter is glowing red hot. chances are the igniter is bad. Let me know what turns up. ken

SOURCE: Gas oven igniter glows, but oven does not turn on.

That is correct. You will have to check if the valve needs replacement or if there is power being sent to the solenoid for the valve. There must be just a connection problem.

SOURCE: My tappan gas oven (Model # 30-4942-0005) doesn't light

yes the igniter is not calling for enough amps to open the control valve, the igniter needs to be repalced.

Sounds like it could be a bad Hot Surface Igniter, Check to see if you see glowing, if not, have the Igniter replaced.

Just because it glows that does not mean it is not bad...

Oven will not come on...glow plug/igniter is illuminated, but no smell of gas.


most of the time this means that the ignitor is weak.if the broil and the upper burners are ok I would think to change it.

Tappan gas range model 72-3981-00/07. Upper oven does not ignite even though the igniter comes on and glows yellow.


The ignitor is weak and must be replaced. When you get the new ignitor turn off the gas supply and the power to replace the ignitor.
Remove the oven racks,remove the oven base pan,remove the flame spreader to access the ignitor.

Oven takes 5 minutes to come on (ignite).


Replaced the igniter. The parts guy told me that the amperage changes with age and use; thus the igniter still glows, but it takes much longer to operate the gas valve with the reduced amperage. Cost - $70.14

The lower oven ignighter does not glow


I had the same problem and swapped the oven igniter with the broiler igniter and the oven now works. This proved the oven igniter itself was the fault, now I have to replace the broiler igniter with a new one(which is much easier to get to).

FYI: An igniter may glow red and still not allow the oven to work. The igniter has to draw a certain amount of electrical current for the main gas valve to open.

Glow plug on oven


Yes. Igniter stays on from just before ignition until just prior to burner shut down with each burn cycle.
