Oven burner won't stay lit goes out

The oven burner won't stay lit when it is heating up or maintaining heat. When I take the inside bottom cover off of the oven I can see the long tube burner is lit. Then it will fade like the gas is not flowing fast enough till the fire is out. Then there is a slight gas smell and it comes back on. When it relights there is a sound of gas igniting like starting an outdoor gas grill. A woof sound this happens every 30 seconds or so. The oven still works but it takes a while to get up to the correct temp. I have checked the gas line to see if there is a kink stopping the gas flow. I can also verify that the ignitor stays orange and glowing.

Mag...not sure here. Is there a particular reason that you're suspecting a problem? Does the unit heat much slower than before? Does it bake properly? You may be looking for problems that aren't.

SOURCE: The oven of GE Profile range simply stopped igniting

If it is a ge it would have a glow bar ignitor, either a flat rectangle shaped or a round ignitor. That is want the problem is 95% of the time. It is pretty easy to do. The floor of the stove will come right out and it probably has two screws in the back corners you can see. Remove them and the floor will lift out and you can see the burner and the ignitor.

SOURCE: igniter is fine. oven won't heat . broiler fine

Maybe the wholes are plugged with food or residue not allowing the gas to flow. Unplug it with a paperclip. Even though the ignitor looks fine it may not be giving enough amps to light the second and subsequent times. Ignitors are farely cheap for this model and if ur technical can do it urself. All that is required is screw driver, igniter, wire cutters (strippers), and two PORCELAIN wire connectors. Good luck.

Unplug the range.
I would open the control console and locate the BAKE/BROIL terminals on the Oven control. I would reverse the wires,plug the range in and try again.
Sounds to me like someone has changed out a part and wired it wrong.

Look up product manual on internet.
Look at label located inside oven door, and add .pdf to search parameter to help find manual.
Then read section about lighting appliance.

If power is out, then pilot will not have any gas >> if gas control is electronic.
Many electronic gas controls require electric power to operate circuit board.

In old days, you removed the bottom tray on oven to access burner and pilot orifice. Then you pushed down switch to release gas through pilot tube, and put lit match into the gas stream to light pilot. Hold down switch until pilot flame heated tip of thermocouple which caused magnetic switch to stay open inside gas control. Release switch and pilot stayed lit.

Safety concerns and vast advances in manufacturing cheapness have changed gas appliances so they are more inconvenient for do-it-yourselfers during ordinary power outage.

One of the top burner pilot lights will not stay

You probably have grease that has gotten into the pilot. Turn off the gas to the pilot and detach the pilot tubing and pilot tip. It sometimes helps to take a propane torch and heat up the pilot tip and tubing, paying special attention to the first bend from the pilot tip. Get it red hot and tap out any ash from the inside. You may have to **** out the tubing with a piece of bare wire or blow it out with WD-40. With the oven pilot, check the pilot flame. If low, adjust. If OK, replace the thermocouple. If neither of these corrects the problem, replace the pilot satety. I always recommend a new thermocouple with a new pilot safety.

The oven pilot does not light. The broiler will not work. The only thing that does is the light. GE XL44 range. The burners light and the pilots stay lit.

    If you have standing pilots, make sure the pilot for the oven/broiler is lit as well.  When you turn the thermostat up to call for heat, you should see the pilot get larger. That larger pilot flame heats a hydraulic sensor and opens the main burner valve.

    My gas oven stays warm even though it is turned off

    A standing pilot such as this will give off heat. So long as the gas bake burner is not lit also, you will be fine. If the bake burner IS lit you have a defective oven control.
