Question about Ovens

Broken stove knob

All of the burners release gas and can form a fire (the ignitor stopped working long ago, but i'm fine using matches), but only two of them remain lit. As soon as you press in the button and release the gas, they just go out, whereas the other two work fine. The strange part is that I disassembled the whole stove top (an Oranier "Dessauer"), cleaned all of the burners/buttons/knobs, reassembled everything, and now one of the original working burners no longer works, while one of the previously broken ones does. My guess is it has something to do with the button/valve - since gas is escaping fine, the valve i think is just closing too much so the burner can't stay lit. Any thoughts on how to fix the valve and or buttons? Could the problem be something I haven't thought of yet? Thanks!

SOURCE: gas top burner not lighting ( 4 others work )

It's probably the ignitor and there may be soemthing clogging one of the gas holes. You can gently use a scrub brush to dislodge any cloggs and see if that helps. You might have to replace the ingitor if this doesn't work. We have parts, so please call us to help. Hope this does the trick for you. Ella

SOURCE: The oven of my westinghouse

This oven is provided with a gas safety- the oven knob has a thermoswitch system: inside the knob valve there's a switch that is controlled by a thermostat , it allows the passing of the gas only after it has been heated. For that to work you must keep the knob pressed for at least 10 seconds after the burner has been lit - the time needed for the thermostat to heat up and allow the gas flow.
Your problem is caused by a faulty knob valve: the safety system of the knob is not disengaged after the thermostat gets hot. You will have to replace it: beware, the tube of the thermostat goes all the way to the burner of the oven and it's hard to replace, it will be a long and fiddly job

The gas in the oven goes on then off


follow this instruction. God bless you
    • 1
      Unplug your unit and turn off the gas supply at the saddle valve near the unit.

    • 2
      Lift up the hood of the oven. If you have sealed burners, the lid will not lift up. Locate the ignitors near the burners of the unit. Clean any gunk away from the ignitor using a toothbrush. Test the unit.

    • 3
      Pull the burner dials off the front of the unit if the ignitors won't work.

    • 4
      Remove the screws at the ends of the front cover, where the gas supply knobs are located, using a screwdriver, and remove the cover from the oven.

    • 5
      Slide the wires off the burner valve switches and pull them off the burner valve by sliding the switch forward. The switch will have wires attached to it. Loosen the screws holding down the wires of the burner valve. Pull out the wires carefully. Place the wires in a new switch. Slide the new switch onto the burner valve. Replace the knob, and turn on the gas supply and power. Ignite the burner.

    • 6
      Follow the switch wires into the oven if the new switch doesn't work. Locate the module box, which is usually 2 inches by 3 inches. Slide the wires out of the module terminal by pulling on the wire connectors. Remove the screws from the old module and pull the module out. Insert the wires into the new module, using the same wire orientation as before. Reassemble the oven. Turn on the electricity and gas, and turn on the burner.

First I want to commend you for your giving us good information to start with!
So-- we know we have gas, and we know the Broiler Valve and ignitor works-- Good observation!

However-- we have no ignitor (No bright red/Yellow glow)-- like you go for the Broiler-- right?

Well, we can NOT get ignition on the main burner-- unless we have the ignitor for the main burner getting hot, and then the gas valve to that burner can light, and give you heat...

Soo-- Likely we have an ignitor failure for the Main burner---

Do you have a warranty on the stove?
Do you have a service person qualified to tackle this job?
There will be electrical work, and parts obtainment issues to deal with now---
I suggest you call the local service people for this stove, and tell that that you need to have the main gas burner ignotor replaced for this stove model number-- and see what they tell you.

Let me know if I can help more--

SF 3000 EWWO how to light pilot


You can raise the top lid of the stove to light the pilot lights for the top burners.
The oven is controlled by a electric glowbar ignitor.
Make sure the cord is plugged into a electrical outlet.
If it is and the oven does not work the glowbar ignitor must be replaced.

1 Answer

The oven burner will not ignite.


Because the glowbar is glowing does not necessarily make it good.
Turn off the gas to the stove. Remove the oven racks. Remove the bottom oven pan. Remove the flame spreader. This gives you access to the glow bar and gas valve.
Put a clamp on amp meter around one wire of the glowbar. Turn the oven control on to BAKE.
If the glowbar reads 3 amps or less,replace the glowbar ignitor.
If the glowbar reads good,check the burner tube for a white ash buildup. It can be cleaned with a wire brush. Look closely near the glowbar section of the burner.
Check all the wire connections for the gas valve.
If the glowbar is good and the ash deposits are gone and the oven still will not ignite,the next step is to replace the gas safety valve.

Burners won't light - Just clicks when set to light


You have an ignitor that is probably bad. And since you're working with gas, just be careful. You do have a pilot light that's electronic that usually allows the burners to ignite. Give us a call and we will be happy ro ship the ignitor to you. Hope this helps! Ella

Hi, There is a good chance the ignitor is bad. Even if it glows, it could be weak enough that it will not open the gas valve. It is very a common problem with the gas stoves.
I would change the ignitor.

KENMORE GAS STOVE OVEN LOWER BURNER WON'T WORK


Most likely a hot-surface ignitor has failed. If it doesn't consume enough current, the gas valve won't open. It's usually a fairly easy fix, once you gain access to the ignitor and have a new one to replace it with. Make sure you unplug the range...
