Gas range (oven)won't lite (gas broiler works fine)

Broiler works perfect as does the range top. Intermittent problem....I turn the range on...the fans spin up (convect)...then I hear the gas relay click open and the the piezo ignitors go off 3 I hear the gas valve click waits about a minute and then tries again....sometimes it lights, sometimes it doesn't...I have taken the bottom of the range apart and and cleaned the piezo ignitor like it's a spark plug...took some sandpaper to the element and the ground and cleaned it off..sometimes it works, sometimes not...just tried it now and the broiler lite 3/3 times...stove 1/3. Where is the model number of it (looks like the one in the pic but I want to make *sure*). Sounds like an igniter problem to does one dissasemble it to fix? Can I buy the part online? Thanks for any advice you can offer. Tony (Ottawa, Canada)

Sounds like an ignitor problem or possibly a dirty orifice. Model #'s are usually on the frame behind the bottom drawer.

Stove top and broiler work Oven won't heat

the way to check this is to first see if ignitor comes on or put an amp clamp meter on it. the ignitor needs to draw 2.8 amps or more to engage the gas valve. if it doesnt lite or draw any amps at all. check voltage to bake ignitor. it will be the ignitor most likely. but the gas valve or control could be bad.

Broiler doesn't lite, no gas going to pilot

Most cases Broiler ignitor is out, after you turn on the Broiler, check the voltage on Broiler ignitor 2 wires, if you have approx. 110v, then change the ignitor, but you don't have 110v, then check Broiler safety valve and oven thermostat, but 90% of the time is the Broiler ignitor. Have fun.

Viking pro. gas range/oven leaks when all knobs turned off

check both oven ignitor and broiler by turning the oven first, and time the time that the ignitor takes before the flame lights up, it should not take more then 60 to 70 seconds, and do the same to the broiler.the one that takes the longer passing that mark of the 70 seconds needs replacing it 's not getting hot enough to light the burner on time that's the one that passes gas with out igniting. replace that one.
