Oven wont heat up.

When the oven is turned on the control panel reads 350 and then clicks to low. The glow light burns bright but the gas never ignites and the oven remains cold. The broiler acts the same...glow light turns on but broiler doesn't heat up. I think the gas value maybe stuck?

SET DIGITAL THERMOSTAT TO SAY 350 DEGREES WILL NOT TURN ON OVEN,,, ? IF I SET TO BROIL BROIL WORKS BUT OVEN WILL NOT TURN ON ?


Possibly the ignitor for the main oven burner has failed--

An observation question:

When the Broiler 'lights' and comes on, do you notice the ignitor glowing bright, before the gas valve (to the Broiler) opens, and you get the Broiler lighting---

Now-- for the main burner to come on, -- there has to be a similar bright glow from the MAIN BURNER ignitor, before its main burner gas valve can open-- No Ignitor?-- No ignition, and not Main Oven burner!

Let me know what you need from this point on --

We have a Whirlpool AccuBake Gas Range. Yesterday we set the oven to Bake at 350 degress. The Display reflected the word "PreHeat" which it always does when we first start the process of baking. However,...


You will first need to verify if the oven igniter is glowing. When you turn on the oven you should be able to see a glow coming from the oven burner compartment. You may need to remove the oven bottom panel to verify if it is working. If it is not glowing then you will need to verify that there is power going to the igniter wire harness and that the igniter is working(has no cracks and tests good with a ohm meter). If the igniter is glowing then this problem can be caused by a weak hot surface igniter or a defective gas control valve. One thing that you can try(be very careful doing this) is to give the gas control valve a light tap with something hard like a wrench when the oven is turned on,igniter is glowing but the burner is not on. You will need to remove the broiler/storage drawer at the bottom of the oven. Once you pull the drawer out you should see the gas control valve at the back of the range. Try turning on the oven and lightly tapping the valve housing. This may loosen up any debris inside the control valve housing that might be causing the problem. If the oven burner comes on then try completely turning the oven on and back of several times. And when I say completely I mean turn it on after the igniter is not glowing and burner has shut off. This works about 30% of the time. If the burner control valve stick after trying this procedure then it could be the control valve and/or the hot surface igniter defective. The hot surface igniter would need to be disconnected from it's harness and tested with an OHM meter. Most igniters should have a 500 to 700 OHM reading. If you get a reading that is way off then the igniter is defective and replace it. If the igniter tests good then the gas control valve is suspect and replace it. Most appliance parts retailers will test your igniter for free. When the igniter is on it should glow very brightly. If it is dim then that is a sure sign it is bad.

Gas oven not lighting


Hi the problem here is the igniter. Take the floor of the oven out and then the flame spreader. The igniter will be located at the back of the burner. Set the oven for 350, if the igniter does not light then test it with an ohms meter it should read continuity. If it reads open you should replace it. If the igniter does glow it still could be bad, the igniter should glow bright yellow to the point you can't look at it. If the igniter glows orange/yellow it is bad you will need to replace it. If you have any other questions please feel free to comment. Mike

I used the self clean and now the oven won't heat. The broiler still works.


Hi, The most likely problem is the igniter was damaged during the clean cycle. Take the floor out of the oven and the flame spreader. set the oven for 350. If the igniter does not glow turn the power off and pull the igniter out and check it with an ohms meter. If as I suspect it reads open you should replace it. If the igniter glows it still may be bad. The igniter should glow bright yellow to the point where you can't look at it. If it glows and uneven yellow/orange it's bad and again you should replace it. If you have any other questions please feel free to comment. Mike

I have a Maytag model #MGR5754QDW gas oven. The oven isn't getting hot. I think it is also called a Precision Touch Control 500. The top works fine, just the oven will not heat up at all.


Hi, the likely cause to the problem is the igniter. Pull the floor of the oven out and then the flame spreader. Now set the oven for 350, if the igniter does not glow unplug the range and test the igniter with an ohms meter. If as i suspect it shows open you should replace it. If the igniter is glowing when set for 350 it may still be bad. An igniter should glow bright yellow to the point you can't look at it. If it glows an uneven yellow/orange it's bad and you should replace it. Mike

Oven wont light


When the bake igniter becomes weak or burns out, your oven would not bake. The bake igniter is usually mounted on the oven burner. It's about 1 inch by 4-8 inches (depending on the model), and comes in round or flat styles. If you don't see the igniter glow at all, it's probably burned out. Replace the igniter if found defective. Note: one of the exceptions could be that your oven is set to automatic mode instead of manual. If this is the case, set your oven to manual mode and check again.

If the bake igniter glows red and not bright yellow or white, it is probably because it is too weak. When this happens, the safety valve would not let the gas out into the oven burner. A weak igniter must be replaced.

A faulty igniter is probably the most common cause, however there are others:

-- defective thermostat
-- defective selector switch
-- defective gas safety valve
-- defective gas valve coils(This will be the next possible issue if the igniter is functional)

Broiler on top works but oven wont ignite


OK, it is likley that the oven ignitor isn't working and needs to be replaced. To verify if this is the problem, when you turn on the oven to BAKE and set the temp at say, 350. Watch through the window, (or you can have the door open). Look at the bottom, back, center and see if you see a bright orange glow appearing under the bottom panel.

If you don't, that is why the oven won't lit the gas. There is an ignitor for both the broiler burner at the top and for the bake burner in the oven compartment.

It might be possible that your oven uses the same ignitor for both the broiler and bake burner tubes, so you could swap them if you wish to confirm that is the problem before you go and order/buy a new one.

Sometimes the ignitor burns out half way through but because it still lits/glows, people think it's OK, but it won't get hot enough to signal the gas valve to open and allow gas to ignite and get the oven cooking.
If you want to see a line drawing and a parts list showing the ignitor(s), go to searspartsdirect.com and enter in the model number of your oven and click on the links shown.

Hope this helps and best regards!

Oven wont light


Mine did that and I found the ignitor for the oven was bad. It was the "glow" type for pilotless ignition and it was burned out. It is supposed to glow bright red and the gas comes on and the oven will light. It was easy to tell that it was bad. But to check it I swapped the broiler ignitor with the oven ignitor and the oven worked.

Re:Whirlpool SF310PKE gas range


When the oven safety valve refuses to open and let gas through, it's almost always because not enough current is flowing through the ignitor. Often an aging ignitor will appear to be glowing pretty brightly but still won't draw enough current to make the valve open. The first thing to try replacing is the ignitor.

You describe your ignitor as "red and glowing" but oven ignitors normally get a lot brighter than "red" -- well into what I'd call yellow.
