SOURCE: oven wont light

My Amana oven will not light, the electric ignitor comes on, but it will not ignite the burner for it to come on. What do you think the problem may be?

SOURCE: Oven won't light

I am assuming this is a gas stove. You probably need a new flint in the igniter. Simple problem. Check your local hardware store for flint, and refer to your manufacturer's manual for how to install it. If it's not there, a quick call to a service technician should answer the problem. hope this has been helpful.

SOURCE: Amana arg7800ww oven will not come up to temperature.

Your gas valve has a thermocouple circuit that will not let gas flow until the ignitor is hot enough. A failed ignitor can still glow but not be hot enough to open the gas valve. Replace your ignitor.

SOURCE: I have a an AMANA gas stove burners work but oven doesn't

First check the book to see if you have a igniter on this stove if so it takes a moment or two to get started, if not you need to light pilot
make sure gas is getting to burner when called for by the thermostat or oven control..

SOURCE: The lower oven ignighter does not glow

I had the same problem and swapped the oven igniter with the broiler igniter and the oven now works. This proved the oven igniter itself was the fault, now I have to replace the broiler igniter with a new one(which is much easier to get to).

FYI: An igniter may glow red and still not allow the oven to work. The igniter has to draw a certain amount of electrical current for the main gas valve to open.

My oven is not turning on although the hob is, how can i fix this?


Gas or electric? My gas oven would not come on last year. Once I had checked the integrity of the gas supply I researched and found that if the glow bar glows orange instead of white, it is worn out and needs replacing. DIY for about $35. Works wonderfully since the replacement. You can find several "how to" videos on YouTube.

Oven does not light


first check the igniter to see the color of it. if it is orange you need to replace it because it is too weak to ignite. it needs to glow white hot. second, the burning smell could be from the coil, check the coils as well near the gas valve.

Viking gas stove operators manual....I was working on my stove ...it was not lighting up....the stove......and I noticed that there was 2 burners...and when I replaced one of the ignighters and tryed the...


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.

Electric ignighter does not come on in the oven at all


In most cases it is the ignitor itself. Eledtricity goes thru the ignitor and as it gets hot it allows more electricity thru to the gas coils, allowing them to open and let the gas go thru. The ignitors do get weak and will glow but that is all. Not enough electricity can get to the gas valve solenoids and let gas thru. Find a local parts dealer and give them your make and model # to order the part.

Pilot Light Wont Light


Take off the top cover plate inside the oven. Now with the door open turn the oven on does the hot surface glow? If it doesn't glow then you have a bad igniter and needs to be replaced. What ever you do don't touch the surface of the new igniter human oil will shorten the life of the igniter. now if the hot surface glows then the gas valve is bad and need to be replaced. I'm betting it's the hot surface.

Double oven willnot light


Peace,
ngafm at your service,

It sounds like a bad igniter in that oven or a bad gas valve restricting the gas flow in that particular oven.

Unfortunately this will require hands on service!

How old is this wall oven?

Please give me a good rating before you sign of!
If the appliance is 10 years old or more you may not be advisable to put good money into bad! New appliances are so much more efficient today that they can save you a lot of money in energy!!!!
You need a hands on tech for this repair!

wait about three days to see if it stops this is typical when you clean one this way as water can get in the ignighter switches if not you have to replace the switches which are on the knob shaft behind the panel and come in sets of four and its not hard
