Oven Doesn't Work but stovetop burners do..

I tired to preheat my oven and nothing came on...didn't smell any gas either..


However, the stovetop burners function as normal..what am I supposed to be looking for in order to try and resolve this problem on my own without calling for professional help (if not needed). I looked at the ignitor and it looked old and black...


Please help?!

Most common problem is a bad oven ignitor.  If yours looks this way then it should be replaced.  This will most likely solve your problem.

Stove won't work. Stovetop burners are fine but

if this unit is equiped with a electronice control board then you need to check the power coming from the board to the ignitor.most cases replaceing this board will solve your problem

Oven won't heat up

Hi. This sounds like a weak igniter, the symptoms usually are: burner won't light, or takes longer than normal to ignite the burner, may or may not smell gas in the oven, does not maintain set temperature or burner does not come on fully. On gas ovens, a glo igniter is like a light bulb, the more you cook, the faster it wears out. Bottom line, needs to be replaced. Good luck.

Oven not heating

On the bottom is a link of what your oven is. I'm pretty sure it's the ingnightor #16. You should see a glow red hot when you turn on the oven or broil. Very common problem and pretty reasonable price to repair. Unless that glows and get's red hot, it will not turn on the gas. I think that should do it. Let me know if you need anything else.

Magic chef gas range; oven takes about an hour or so to preheat.

most common issue, and it sounds like what your experiencing here, is a faulty ignitor, replace the bake ignitor ( located under teh oven floor, attached to the burner bar)

LG Electric Range Oven Keeps Shutting Off

When you say "Just shut off" do you mean the circuit breakers would trip, or fuses would blow? If so, I would have an electrician check that the circuit is properly fused/breakered and wire sized for the amount of power required by the oven. If the installation directions say it needs a 50 amp service, it better be a 50 amp service.
If shutting off is just something within the oven, then get LG back out again, and let us know of what they say is wrong.
