Question about Hotpoint RGB745 Gas Kitchen Range
Installed new - 18 months ago. All burners work great, so does the broiler. Oven igniter glows red, but no gas is released for ignition. Had a GE tech come out a couple of months ago, ran tests, said amperage availability was fine. Went on to conclude the combo regulator unit needed to be replaced and estimated repair costs to be almost as much as buying a new stove. Paid him a whopping service visit fee for his expert advice and ordered the part myself. Installed it...problem still exists. Any ideas????
There was simply a shut off value. I flipped it open, and then it worked fine!!

It sounds like your saftey valve is out.It is the valve where the flame bar sits in.Try that.

That red tag is a shut off valve for the regulator. what you need to do is to try to get the red tag back on if it is not broke, look at the red tag because it snaps back on the regulator which has a hook for the red tag to fit in once it is in the red tag flips up in the on position and that opens the regulator to release the gas if it is in the down position once you have it one it will shut the gas flow off so make sure it is in the up position. If it is broke you have to replace the regulator.
