Constantly replacing igniter, what might be issue


If the igniter is failing frequently the burner may be shooting too much gas on the igniter. check to see if the holes on the burner tube are burned and too large. They should be no larger that about a 16th of an inch if they are much larger then they could be burning out the igniter. It could be you are using the oven frequently . the more you use the oven the shorter life on the igniter.

Zanussi gas cooker gas not coming through no ignition


Gas ovens / stovetop that use gas and not electricity. These work by igniting gas and use actual flame on the the stovetop.

Newest cook top styles, such as the induction or halogen cook tops combine the same style to produce more even heating. Some of these ovens feature thermal limiters or thermostats that regulate the burner system.

GAS OVENS
The spark igniter tip is dirty (can clean it with either a little wire brush or a piece of fine sandpaper).
2) The Pilot flame is too low, and the tip of the igniter is not in the flame good enough. (the flame acts as a circuit when it touches the tip & completes the circuit).
3) The spark module is no good and needs to be replaced.(But 1 & 2 are your best bet).
spark module does not sense the flame when it's on. The spark igniter is also the flame sensor which provides feedback to the spark module.

Make sure the igniter is properly aligned with the burner lighting holes and it is clean. All lighting holes must be clean too. You can enlarge them using a drill bit one size bigger.

If it would not fix the problem, replace the bake burner and the igniter.
There is a small chance for the spark module itself to be bad as well.

The oven safety valve
(also called the gas valve) is the part that ensures that gas is not released until the igniter has reached the correct temperature needed to ignite the gas. While this part can fail, it is uncommon. If the hot surface igniter does not glow you should first verify that you have voltage to the circuit. This is a live voltage check and should be performed by a qualified person. If voltage is lost at the valve terminals then you should verify the continuity of the bi-metal in the valve using a multi-meter.

When turn oven on can see the igniter coming on.but it doesn't light.can smell the gas


You need to replace your igniter. Very common replacement part.Igniters can look ok but can be failing and not drawing enough amps to open gas valve . Disconnect power before attempting.

hope this helps

Have a 1980s model oven model #EH4W4 .My problem is the burners work great but oven does not lite anymore when temp is selected.?


If it is a standing pilot the thermocouple has most likely failed. If it is electronic ignition the the igniter has probably failed. Is the oven plugged in to the wall outlet all the way or is it direct wired? Is it standing pilot or elctronic ignition? Really need more info to correctly diagnose

How to light pilot


Most ovens today, do not have a pilot.

Most of them have a glow ignitor or spark ignition system.

if this system is failing it could be the ignitor itself or the gas valve or even a electrical switch or thrmostat or controlboard.

if you do have a older oven that does still have a pilot there are just too many types to be able to instruct you.

I would need a model number to help you further.

Maytag propane gas oven Model# CRG7500AAL Serial# 15001534HU Problem is that the oven was taking a long time to ignite, this went on for a couple months, and now it will not ignite. Stove top burners...


This sounds like the igniter failed again. The only way to know for sure is to check the amp draw. Some cheap after market parts don't last as long as OEM. Here is a link that will walk you thru this http://appliancehelponline.com/gasoventroubleshootvideo.html

Just replaced the igniter in my maytag gas oven. Before I replaced it all was fine but since the replacement igniter was installed oven stays on all the time. I have to unplug power so igniter will turn...


Your oven switch or control has failed. This is the only way power can get to the igniter. Sometimes this is the cause for the igniter failure like the previous one you had. Could have fried it out pretty quick.

I replaced what I thought was a bad igniter.But still had no glow from new igniter. Must be something else.Where do I go from here?


Hello there: The oven bake burner and ignition components are located beneath the oven cavity. In most cases the oven bottom panel can be removed for access (check your owner's manual) but on some models the oven burner has to be accessed from below in the warming or broiler drawer area. If accessing from the top, a 'flame spreader' (flat metal plate) above the burner may also need to be removed to see the burner itself.Many ovens use a single oven burner in which case they only have a single gas valve and ignitor. The same burner is used for both bake and broil functions, the broil usually being in the drawer area below the oven. Higher-end models may have a separate bake and broil burner. On such a system there will be two ignitors, one for each burner. They may also employ a 'dual' gas valve (see illustration above) instead of using a separate valve for each burner.Some range models may have an additional broil burner located at the top of the oven cavity which may be referred to as a 'waist high' broil. If not, broiling usually takes place in the drawer area below the oven, which uses the same bake burner for the broil function. Most gas ranges currently available employ one of 3 basic gas ignition systems; pilot ignition, hot surface ignition system (which uses a 'glow bar' or 'glow coil' - aka an "ignitor") and a spark ignition system. The latter two being referred to as "electronic ignition" systems as they use electricity in one form or another to operate the oven heating system. Only the pilot ignition system has an actual "pilot" (which is a small but real "flame") which might need manual lighting.
If the surface burners of a range are a spark ignition type, the oven IS one of the possible kinds of electronic ignition systems and thus will not usually have a "pilot" which needs lighting. Be aware though that just because the surface burners might light via a spark doesn't necessarily mean the oven uses the spark type ignition system too.
There is one older style of electronic ignition system which does also use an oven pilot but it is very rare and such a system hasn't been used in oven models since the early to mid 70's. It is the 'constant pilot' *electronic ignition* system.


Making Observations
The oven burner's operation will usually need to be directly observed while in operation as the first step to troubleshooting problems.Ignition System Type Links
Ignition System Types:
  • Pilot Ignition
  • Electronic Ignition with Constant Pilot (rare)
  • Electronic Ignition with Glow Ignitor (most common)
  • Spark Ignition System

  • Is there continuity between the oven gas valve's terminals?


    Hot Surface ('Glow Bar') Ignition System (most common)
    This is the most popular system currently used for ovens and is comprised of a control mechanism (whether thermostat or electronic control), the oven ignitor and an oven gas valve.


    What happens in this style ignition system is that the thermostat or electronic control switches power to the oven ignitor and gas valve circuit which are connected in series (one after the other). As power flows through the ignitor it heats and draws current (measured in amperage). Once the oven ignitor draws a specific amount of current the oven valve opens to allow gas to flow to the oven burner where the glowing hot ignitor (glow bar) ignites it. Power must continually flow through the ignitor and oven gas valve for gas to be released into the oven burner to create a flame.

    It should usually only take in the area of 30-90 seconds for the oven ignitor to reach the proper resistance to allow the proper amperage to reach the gas valve to open it and for the ignitor to ignite the gas at the oven burner.

    Electronic ignition system failed


    electric ignition. Electric goes to ignition button, then to a spark generator, where upon a spark is produced. If any part of this sustem is wet, then it is shorted to earth. No spark.
