Re: Oven wont start

The control sends voltage down to the ignitor, the ignitor glows red, when and if the ignitor gets hot enough it opens the gas valsve to let gas in which is then lit by the ignitor.

If ignitor glows either the ignitor is bad or the oven valve

If the ignitor does not glow then either the ignitor is broken, the control is not sending voltage down, or the oven valve is bad and not sending voltage to the ignitor.

In most cases it is the ignitor which is the cheapest of the three parts

Oven wont light unless you turn on a stove eye and


Sound`s to me you need a new hot surface ignitor. Sorry to hear you may have changed the valve & regulator for nothing, but that happen`s quite often when you get the symptom`s you`ve described, I`ve even seen tech`s. do it. The reality is 9 times out of 10 when a hot surface ignition gas/lpg oven won`t light it is the ignitor.

Pick up part number 74007498 for approx. $40 and you`ll be cooking.

Hope that help`s. If so please take a second and rate the solution I provided here at fixya for you.

Good luck.

Switching from gas to oven

Your model stove is dual fuel. Which means that the burners on the top of your stove are run using gas, and the bake and broil (and possibly a warming draw) are run using electricity. So if you are cooking on the top of your range you are using gas, and if you cook in the oven you are using electicity
