Question about Kenmore 30464 / 30465 / 30469 Gas Single Oven
Glow plug comes on burns bright but no ignition at burner. blew out burner assy and it is clean and open. Has 120 volts on all 4 terminal block plugs. Could this be needing new valve or glow plug not putting out enough heat. Thanks
Doubt that the glow plug is bad. Gas only needs about 1100 degree F. to ignite using the glow plug method. It really seems as if there may be no gas getting to the burner. If there is no flame, you should be able to smell gas. If there is no gas smell, then I would look for the obvious such as: is the gas turned on?, Does the gas valve on the unit have a safety that is tripped? and so on. A new gas valve may be in order but make sure that it is receiving the proper voltage when the glow plug is on. Lastly, there may be a safety that is malfunctioning. If the unit does not light within a given time, the safety will "Lock Out" the unit so the place doesn't fill up with gas.
Hope this helps and good luck.

Tips for a great answer:
oven control supplies voltage to the oven igniter/gas valve circuit. When the
oven control is set to Bake, voltage is supplied to the oven igniter which
should glow bright red to almost white hot. Once the igniter comes on and
begins to glow it must pull enough current to cause the gas valve to open so
the burner can ignite from the igniter. I added an image below with the theory
of operation. Click this link:--http://media.fotki.com/1_p,swbbsqrsgstsqkkxgtqsskgwtqkq,vi/wrgtsbrktxwdfwfbgdg/1/1303472/5961857/image5576034710104836299img-or.png
the broiler drawer and then set the oven control to bake and watch to see if
the glow bar igniter glows or not. If it does not glow, the failure could be a
broken Igniter, failed oven control board or gas valve. If the igniter is
glowing red, then it can be possible that gas valve is faulty. To see how
igniter looks. See the fig below:--

Also to confirm, check to see if the igniter is getting 120 volts
when it's turned on. If it gets 120 volts, then your safety gas valve is bad
because it's not letting the neutral go through. Otherwise, if it's NOT getting
120 volts, your control board shorted out and you need a new control board.
But as you mentioned that control board is replaced. So igniter should get 120 volts. If valve is faulty. But if igniter is not glowing then its faulty igniter confirmed.

In most of the cases the igniter is faulty, because gas
valve getting faulty is very rare. But still getting the voltages checked, will
confirm. These will help. Thanks. Helpmech.
