I assume you are saying the oven will not light but you can see the igniter glowing....if this is the case you will still need to replace the igniter, igniters need to be drawing a certain amperage before the will open the gas safety valve. in this case your igniter is glowing unevenly orange and is old - it is not pulling enough amps to open the valve. Replace it and you should be good to go.

Why isn't my oven working? After changing bake element and thermostat


Either the bottom element is defective or the wiring to it is not hooked up properly so it gets power and does its job ala the top element.

OR the control that is responsible for having power delivered to both elements is only sending power to the top element. Make sure you are not using the broil setting since that only activates the top burner.

Main oven does not heat at all


Sounds like the heating/starter element went out. This item is very delicate and will break if touched. They are used on almost all newer gas appliances. It takes about 3 minutes to check. Turn the oven on and look down near the burners with all of the lights in the room out. You should see a glow for a while, then it will click off for a while and then come back on. If not, then turn off the oven and get a flashlight and look for the starter element to see if it is broken. It is about one inch wide, two inches long, and 1/4 inch thick. If you do get a glow then this is good news, the element is not broken. However, the element operates a thermostatic switch which operates the gas valve. This switch may be broken. The switch and the starter element usually come out together when removed.

Oven takes up to 15 minutes to light. glow plug does appear to be bright orange immediately after turning oven on. it is a propane unit.


Hi, glow plug (element) should glow red, maybe you got faulty thermocouple, located ot bottom of oven burner, unit where gas enter oven burner, they could either be gas pilot or electrical element as metering device, give a little tap, could be stuck, could also be your thermostat, check oven thermostat, many ways to check oven thermostat, give thermocouple a little tap located at beginning of oven burner, if it didn't work, call a mechnic to make futher checks. good luck.

Thanks

Oven burner won't light


You likely have a bad ignitor. It's like a mini element that heats up and then ignites the gas once the valve releases it. When the ignitor gets old it doesn't glow bight enough or draw enough amperage so the gas valve won't open. If you set bake and see a glow coming from under the plate in the oven but the burner never lights that's your culprit. They probably cost about $50-$80. Good luck!

Whirlpool Accubake Super Capacity 465 gas range. Oven won't light


Some gas ranges may take 10 or so minutes to light.
Other than that you may have a defective glow bar ignitor.
If it glows and does not light the reistance in the ignitior has failed.

JGBC20BEHCT OVEN PROBLEM


can you hear a hissing sound? if your element isnt working it will need to be replaced as a saftey measure most ovens will not "pass gass" without a working element to prevent explosions, try wiggling the connnections to the element and make sure everything is tight and see if it will heat

Roper gas range and oven with electric igniter


First look to see if the ignitor is coming on. Most common problem is the ignitor is weak or just bad. When the power is applied to the ignitor it glows and builds up resistance to open the gas valve then it lights. If the ignitor is weak or bad it will not build up enough resistance for gas to come into the burner. One sign of this would be a "woosh" sound when it trys to light. If the ignitor is coming on but not lighting it is most likely the ignitor is bad. Should have a full glow. Also, if the ignitor looks whiteish in color this is a sign of it going bad. You can compare to the broil ignitor to be sure. If the ignitor doesn't come on at all will need to see if you have power to the ignitor. Let me know what you find and let's solve it before you rate the solution.
