Next to the burner in the oven sits a ceramic igniter. When you turn the oven it glows orange which ignites the flame. It stays on even if the oven is at temperature and the flame if off. There are 2 wires going to it and its connectors are in a part of the oven away from the heat and flame. They do burn out. There is no reset. You have to replace it.
if it gas and the bake isn't working correctly,first thing that usually goes is the ignitor,sometimes the ignitor will glow but won't lite the flame,it works on amps. a flat ignitor takes 3.2 amps to open the gas valve a round one os 2.5 amps.so the easiest way to check it is start the oven,if you can't see the ignitor glowing orange then remove the racks and the floor of the oven so you can see it,when the ignitor starts to glow it should ignite the flame within 40 seconds,if not change out the ignitor,if the ignitor doesn't glow then you need a meter to check it for continuity,disconnect the ignitor wires and check it with a meter,set it on say 20k ohms,touch the leeds to the ignitor wires,if it stays on 1 then the ignitor is bad,if you get any other reading other than 1 then it's good and you have a problem somewhere else but like i said most of the time it will be the ignitor.
Hello, Thank You for using FixYa. I will be helping you today.This sounds like an ignitor issue.When the ignitor starts to fail it will glow enough to add heat to the oven or the default for the oven is 100 degrees.The ignitor is located under the bottom inside the oven,Sometimes it will glow but it dont let enough power through to open the gas valve. I would say its an ignitor issue.
Thank You and please rate my answer if it was helpful..
When you turn the oven on, open the oven door and look down at the
bottom and see if its glowing red, it should glow red for about 45-60
seconds then you should hear the gas ignite. If the gas doesn't ignite,
then your igniter glow bar is bad.
Most common problem is the glow bar ignitor. Lift off the bottom panel of the oven and remove. (Some have two screws holding the panel at the back of the panel.) Turn the oven on and see if the glow bar glows.
Even if the glow bar glows doesn't mean that it is working 100%. An amp probe is need to see if the glow bar is drawing the proper amperage to allow the gas valve to open allowing gas to come to the burner. The glow bar should draw about 3.5 to3.8 amps. If drawing more or less than this, replace the glow bar ignitor.
I hope this helps.
Hi, It sounds like the ignitor might be getting weak and opening the gas valve conditantly. Try setting a temperature and watch to see the ignitor glow. The flame should ignite within 30-45 seconds. If the flame ignites to heat rith away, it should get up to temp before shutting down.
I hope this helps you. Please let me know if I can assist you further with this issue.
Remove the bottom of the oven you will see 2 screws in the back. once you do that there is a flame baffel on top of the burner held on my one screw. remove that. now turn the oven on and watch to see if the glow bar comes on. I would say it wont or if it dose it is to weak to open the gas valve. Replace the glow bar and you will be back in business. the glow bar is a ware item everytime theoven is on and is heating the glow bar is on . good luck
