Westinghouse oven no gas but supply and power is good


Your subject line says dryer but the text is about a stove.... This applies to your stove. Check to see if something fell down the back of your stove, there usually is a gas shut off at the floor that may have been inadvertently turned off. You may have to pull out the stove slightly, to see behind the stove.

Whirlpool SF315PEK oven pilot seems Ok but gas in oven wil not light. How do I check that the gas is flowing or if it needs to be adjusted?


Hello,
If what your experiencing with the oven is that the oven igniter glows but their is no flame,the cause of that is going to be because the igniter is weak and not getting hot enough to open the gas valve and allow the gas to flow. I know it seems improbable that since the igniter glows that it's the problem but i tell ya with 100 assiduity that's exactly what the problem is. Replacing the igniter will fix your oven.

Glow plug gets red but oven will not ignite. Broiler ignites but has seperate glow plug.


Check to see if you are getting gas to the oven burner. If it will light with a match then look into adjustment of the flow plug, but if it won't light, then look at the gas valve or switch.

Grill will not light


Try replacing the regulator if you get no gas flow, or very weak gas flow. If you have gas flow and you are trying to light the grill with the ignitor. The rotary piezo ignitions must click with each turn, if they don't then they are bad and need to be replaced. If you have a new lynx with the glow plugs, check to see if they are glowing, if they are glowing and the grill has gas and still won't light, then the glow plugs are not getting hot enough which means you are leaking current somewhere and have to trace everything down to find the short.

The way it works is the igniter gets voltage signal from the control and will start to glow. The gas valve for the burner and the igniter are wired on the same circuit. When the igniter starts to glow it takes all the voltage from the circuit. As the igniter increases in temp the resistence changes and the voltage starts to travel to the gas valve. Once the gas valve registers 3 to 4 volts it will open allowing gas to the burner for ignition. The igniter needs to reach approx 2200 degrees for this to happen. So it could be the igniter or the gas valve. The igniter should test approx 500 to 700 ohms with a ohm meter. The gas valve could also be sticking. If the igniter is glowing bright and you tap the gas valve with a wrench and it comes on then the gas valve is sticking and needs replacement(as long as the igniter tests good)...Hope that helps.

The clock(computer?)broke so I replaced that part it seems to work. I then tried the oven it will not light. The ignition glows red but does not light the gas. I can smell gas. I tried lighting the oven...


Just because an igniter glows, does not necessarily mean it is good. The following link explains:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r401858-replacing_oven_igniter_gas_range

It sounds like you may have had a couple of problems. The gas smell concerns me though. If an igniter is weak, you shouldn't get any gas flow in the oven. This is a designed safety feature that prevents free flowing gas from filling up the oven cavity without ignition. I would recommend checking your igniter for the proper current and/or replace. The link I provided, lists the steps required. If you have any questions, please let me know. I hope this helps you.
