Question about Ovens
Hello. I have an old Roper oven, model no. 1068106. The oven will not come on but when we turn it on the ignitor does light up. I have replaced the ignitor several times over the lifetime of the oven. I suspect that either the control valve or the pressure regulator is bad. How does the control know to turn on the gas when the ignitor comes on? My documentation shows part no. 307435 for the control valve and 294375 for the pressure regulator. If they are not terribly expensive I would like to replace both.
Can you help please?
I have the same problem, bad ignitor on model 1068106 but do not have a part number or a manual. Could you send a part number?

The ignitor draws amperage thru gas valve which opens the bimetal valve to release the gas.Round ignitor 2.75 amps. Rect. 3.5 amps.Bottom line if burner dont fire within 60 seconds of turning orange you have a weak/bad ignitor.Hope this helps.Please rate my response :)
