SOURCE: oven won't work

Yes. The ignitor must register 2.9 amps or more to operate correctly and ignite the gas. Replace the ignitor.

SOURCE: replace igniter on hotpoint gas oven

REMEMBER TO UNPLUG YOU UNIT> The oven igniter is located under a metal plate. Remove the oven door so that you can slide out the flat cover to expose this plate. There are four screws holding down the plate. Once you remove this plate the igniter will be exposed. Hint: The screws holding the igniter in place are difficult to loosen if you dont have the correct socket for it. Once you do remove the two screws holding the igniter, pull the igniter until the connector plug comes out and replace it.

The Broiler igniter is easier to access. Remove one screw from the plate covering the gas manifold. Then loosen the one towards the front. Pivot this metal cover ccw to get it out of the way and using a socket, remove the two screws holding down the igniter and pull it out until the connector is exposed. Install in reverse order.

Oven will not ignite underneath, no gas seems to be flowing and if left on long enough it smells like gas, stove top works


Hello,

The reason your eventually are smelling gas yet the oven will not light is because of a extremly weak igniter for the oven,its not drawing enough power to open the gas valve. By replacing the igniter it will quickly open and no gas smell.

Oven not heating to desired temperature


You will have to place a amp meter over one ignitor wire and turn the oven on to bake.
If the amp draw is 3.3 amps or less,replace the ignitor.

Our oven doesn't heat and smells like gas


This sounds like a weak igniter, it would have to be a gas oven and the symptoms usually are: takes longer than normal to ignite the burner, may or may not smell gas in the oven, does not maintain set temperature or burner does not come on fully, eventually won't heat at all. On gas ovens, a glo igniter is like a light bulb, the more you cook, the faster it wears out. Bottom line, needs to be replaced. Good luck.

Oven is slow ot light and has a gas smell when


Hi, this sounds like a weak igniter, it would have to be a gas oven and the symptoms usually are: takes longer than normal to ignite the burner, may or may not smell gas in the oven, if it does light the burner, there may be delayed ignition (pop), does not maintain set temperature or burner does not come on fully, eventually won't heat at all. On gas ovens, a glo igniter is like a light bulb, the more you cook, the faster it wears out. Bottom line, needs to be replaced. Good luck.

Gas smell, oven not heating up


You gas oven uses a glowbar to both regulate and ignite the gas entering the oven. If this glowbar is faulty, it might let some gas into the oven but it is not hot enough to ignite the gas. That is why you are smelling gas. I would suggest to start by replacing the glowbar (and if this is not the solution, simply return the part for a refund). The part you are looking for can be found online here: http://www.partselect.com/PartDetail.aspx?Inventory=470129&SourceCode=1

It is quite easy to replace. Simply remove the free-standing pan on the bottom of the oven, unscrew the existing glowbar, remove the back cover from the stove and trace the two wires that belong to the glowbar and unplug them. Thread the two wires from the new glowbar through the opening and reconnect to the plugs at the back of the stove. Screw in the new glowbar and test. Most oven ignition problems are caused by faulty glowbard. Good luck.

Explosion potential


Absolutely do not use it until the problem is taken care of. You do indeed have an explosion hazzard.

95% chance all it needs is a thourouch cleaning of the ignition assembly.

When burner orifices and lighting tracks get contaminated and partially clogged with rust, dirt, and other sediment it starts to block the gas flow.

The gas starts to build up unburnt untill it eventually encounters the flame or ignitor, and then all the built up gas ignites at once.

It would eventuallty get worse.

Clean or replace the ignition assembly and burners.
A brass wire brush works wonders.

Oven does not heat up, can smell gas.


You probably need an oven igniter, it's weak. Remove oven bottom and find caged unit attached to burner. Replace this oven igniter. The 2 wires can go either way.
