OVEN WON'T LIGHT IN BAKE MODE

I have a JENN-AIR model JGW8130 that will not let gas flow to burnners
in the BAKE mode. Gas flow fine to the upper burners in the BROIL mode.

The lighters turn on in either mode. Any suggestions as to what it
the problem? It remind me of a thermo coupler problem appliances
with a pilot light has. This oven has no burning pilot.

Thanks,
James Ware

    Thanks for your response. However, maybe I didn't make myself clear in the original post.

    This is an oven and there is no button to hold down like on a gas furnace or water heater.

    When I select bake and set a cooking tempature there is a little electric gizmo that turn

    bright red and usually after abut 10 to 15 seconds the gas will start flowing and light from

    the gizmo. The gizmo still turn red but gas to the lower oven bake burner never start to flow.



    However, there is plenty of gas to the oven because if I select broil, instead of bake, then the

    gizmo at the top of the oven will turn red and after so many seconds gas will flow to the

    broiler element and it will light as normal.



    We can cook using the broiler burner but not the bake burner.

    Thanks for the input. I cannot swap out the igniter without unhooking gas and electric supply lines.

    This oven is installed into a standing wall cabinet with lots of trimming, so I am going to

    bite the bullet and call a repairman.

Hi

Before calling a repairman i would suggest you to unplug the oven for 30 minutes from electric supply and also reset the circuit breaker. After this is done check if your oven works, else the oven bake burner or the oven bake burner wiring/control have gone bad.

Please do accept this solution and revert for further assistance.

Thanks

Hi,

it is probably the thermocoupler.some are pretty universal others will be a pilot/thermocoupler assembly specific to a brand or series.if it hasn't been lit in a while hold the button down a while (a minute or minute and a half and release slowly)if the tip of the pilot isn't turning red or the flame is flickering call your gas co. or repairman. Thanks

    This usually is an indication of a bad igniter. If this is the standard glow type igniter, it could appear as if it is working, but may not be providing enough current to open the gas valve. This is a safety feature on gas ovens. The gas valve requires a current potential of .32 to .37 amps through the igniter before it will open and allow gas to flow. This prevents gas leakage if the igniter fails to light. The reason your broiler works is probably due to the fact that the broiler gets used less and the igniter is probably in better condition. You can test this theory, if you like, by swapping the igniter for the bake and broil burners to see if the symptoms change. Or, you can simply just replace the bake igniter with a new one. Make sure you secure the power before attempting, though. You shouldn't have to turn off the gas for this. Chances are that's all it is. I hope this helps you.




    Thanks

Model: JDS8850AAS -- Oven won't preheat above 150


Hello,

The problem beleive it or not is that the bake ignitor is weak ,and it is not drawing the proper amprage to open the gas valve.If you have a amp meter access the wires to the bake ignitor(usually behind the storage drawer) and check for 3.3-3.6 amps when oven is set to bake by clamping the meter around ONE wire wire of ignitor make sure only one wire,either one and not both.
if amp draw less than 3.3-3.6 amps replace bake ignitor. I know it seems improbable that if the ignotor comes on that it could be the problem.Professional appliance technicians who would charge a average of $250.00 to repair your oven,have found when the ignitor comes on yet the oven won't heat that a weak ignitor is the cause 100% of the time

Hope this helps

My jenn-air gas oven works when i put the broiler on but the oven will not come on


i would replace your bake ignitor, as an oven cycles the broil ignitor and bake ignitor on/off to preheat the oven.. if ur bake is not coming on i would replace it, hope this helps

Oven will not light. it is a frigidaire model #


When the bake igniter becomes weak or burns out, your oven will not bake. The bake igniter is usually mounted on the oven burner. It's about 1 inch by 4-8 inches (depending on the model), and comes in round or flat styles. If you don't see the igniter glow at all, it's probably burned out. Replace the igniter if found defective. Note: one of the exceptions could be that your oven is set to automatic mode instead of manual. If this is the case, set your oven to manual mode and check again.

If the bake igniter glows red and not bright yellow or white, it is probably because it is too weak. When this happens, the safety valve will not let the gas out into the oven burner. A weak igniter must be replaced.

A faulty igniter is probably the most common cause, however there are others:

  1. Defective thermostat
  2. Defective selector switch
  3. Defective gas safety valve
  4. Defective gas valve coils

My Jenn-air oven won't turn on. It's model number


My Jenn Air 1995 wall oven was working fine until one day the oven and the oven gas burner did not turn ON. I had electricty (make sure you did not trip a breaker) since my front panel LCD and clock was OK. I had a good gas supply.

My oven is an "pilot-less" oven, it uses an electric igniter. Although the "ignitor" was "glowing red hot", the problem is that the gas valve depend on a certain amount of current. If you have a 120V house system, I think the valve needs 3.3 to 3.6 amps to turn on. The current flows through the igniter and then through the valve, as in a same path, like water. So you need an AMP meter to check proper current flow. I read 2.4 amps. I replaced the "glowing red hot" igniter with a new one, Vo"la it was fixed.

Bottom line if you have the oven plugged in OK and you see some life (clock), and you have the gas turned on, most likely the igniter is bad. Second choice would be the oven's thermostat (the temp knob that you turn, say to 350F), or it could be the gas valve.

All three are in same current circuit. The igniter gets the most abuse so I would start there first -good luck!

My Jenn Air oven W27200B displays F2 error any solutions? Also one of the burners would hang- one worked and the other didnt.


HI. this is a failed oven temp sensor or relay board.

Oven temp sensed; over 600F sensed by control in time of day mode, bake mode, or over 900F sensed in clean mode.


Ohm test the oven temperature sensor, if OK, change power relay board.
