For future reference, you need to explain whether this is a GAS or ELECTRIC range. It does make a difference in diagnosing the problem you have.

If this is a GAS range, the problem is more than likely a faulty igniter on the bake manifold. Since the bake feature gets used more often, it is common for the igniter to wear out faster. The following link explains how the igniters work and instructions on replacing one:

If this is an ELECTRIC range, the problem is more than likely a defective heating element for the bake feature. The same reason applies. Since the bake feature gets used more frequently, the elements wear out much quicker. The next link explains how to replace a heating element:

I don't know what solenoid you are asking about, but if this is in reference to a gas safety valve or regulator, you would have similar problems with the broil functions if the there was a gas flow problem. Since MOST ranges are fed from a common regulator, gas flow to all the features would be impacted.

Replacement parts can be purchased on line at appliancepartspros.com, pcappliancerepair.com, searspartsdirect.com or repairclinic.com. All these sites offer great service with competitive pricing, so shop around for the best price. If you have any questions, please let me know. I hope this helps you.

My tappan oven won't work. stove and broiler work fine. ignighter glows but it seems like there is no gas.


I would check with your manufacturer and see if a professional can diagnose the regulator and even the gas valve itself.

Flow plug


even though the ignitor seems to glow bright orange,it still maybe weak,as in not enough current to open the gas valve,an easy test is to just swap out or interchange the broiler ignitor and bake ignitors and see if this takes care of your issue on the lower bake side as most units use the identical ignitor for each upper and lower manifolds and the gas valve supplies both the bake and broiler manifolds depending on which you choose to use bake or broil

Gas Oven - no flame at Bake Baffle - Glow Bar glows fine


If the glow bar is working (glowing) it is the gas valve. BUT, the glow bar can also actually glow and still not be working 100% and letting enough current through to the valve. You could swap an identical valve out to check it, if you don't have a meter. It's more than likely the valve though.

Oven not working. Top, broiler, and warmer are working.


Have you checked for proper gas flow into the over or broiler? This is a gas valve back there that will sometimes go bad. Also there is a sensor near your knobs, it is a timer that will go bad, the valve is about 85 dollars and the timer is about 65 dollars

Hotpoint Gas oven doesn't light


Is the gas valve easy to replace on a gas oven?

Sf195lehz5 free standing gas oven,


Check both gas valve solonoids for 216 ohms [blue broiler wire to the orange common and red oven wire to orange common] both must be ok.

Check oven temp sensor for 1080 ohms.

If above are ok then the problem is either the spark module or the control board.

Since the gas valve was not opening and there was not ignitor sound I replaced the spark module for about $90. You have a 50-50 chance of being right.

My range is relitively new and I'm haveing an oven light problem which I traced to the control board so I may replaced this board to for about $200.
