Oven shut off and won't re-light

defective glow bar or bad safty valve. But if the glow bar does not light at all, most likely it will be a bad glow bar

GE JGSP28SEN4SS bake and broil do not work

Gas ovens need a glow bar igniter to operate as a safety feature. if it is broken (and they do go out often) nothing will work. (it stops the gas from coming into the stove if it is broken, (its purpose light any gas and to send a signal to the valve that (yes I'm on and you can keep sending gas) they are always on when the oven is on they never stop glowing... until you turn off the oven.. they are very visible in their glow.. in most oven you can see them like a red hot iron glowing in the oven before it lights the gas.
in the diagram #316 is the igniters
This is for your info only call the gas company...or a qualified gas oven repairman. Gas ovens can be dangerous.
If the glow ignitors are working (both) then it could be a valve issue but they need a certain amount of resistance from the glow bar to open. (sometimes even if the glow bars are glowing if they are getting old the resistance is not enough to open the gas valve.)

Gas oven not getting hot - glow bar works but no gas to burner

This happens when an oven igniter (glow bar) is bad. The igniter must draw enough amps to turn on the gas to ignite the flame. If you have a square shaped igniter use this part#5303935066 If your have a round shaped igniter use part#wb2x9154. These igniter will pretty much work universally for most gas ranges or ovens.
  1. Remove the racks
  2. Unplug unit
  3. Take out the screw holding the bottom pan
  4. Remove screws holding manifold where igniter is attached
  5. Remove manifold cut wires about 2in link from igniter and clean leads.
  6. Unscrew and remove igniter
  7. Replace Igniter with new one and fasten onto manifold
  8. Clean wires and screw on ceramic nuts to wires
  9. Tuck wires back and Reinstall all components
Test your new igniter. You might notice it taking a little longer to light up but that is okay.
Please let me know if this was helpful by rating me a 4.
Thanks so much have a great weekend.

Magic chef self ignitor top,, how do u get the oven to work.. is it self ignite too. i turn on oven ger a glow in the oven,, dont know the model ,,older stove. good shape. bought house with gas stove...

If the glow bar is glowing and the oven doesn't come on in about 30 - 45 seconds.... it probably is the glow bar that needs to be replaced. BUT it could be the oven valve. Usually it is the glow bar.
The glow bar is wired in series with the oven valve and even if it is glowing it may not be sending the correct voltage through to the oven valve. To change the glowbar... unplug the appliance, unscrew 2 screws holding the metal bracket to the burner and remove the ignitor. You can cut the 2 white wires going to the ignitor and use ceramic wire nuts with the new ignitor.

My bet is that the broiler ignitor has been out for a while and you just never knew it...
I would change the ignitor as a first try to fix it it is themost common failure..

Oven does not work. The ignitor lights up but will not kick the gas on.


It sounds like you have a hot surface ignition system (glow bar). If this is correct and you have gas coming to the top burners then the most likely suspect is the ignitor (glow bar).

I know this sounds strange, since it is glowing, but they get week and build up a high resistance as they age and do not allow enough current to flow to open the gas valve.

If you send me your model number I can look up the part number you need, the model number is on the tag usually on the cabinet front behind the lower drawer/door.

Our glow bar lights up when gas oven is turned on, then the gas comes out, but it takes a long time to lite the gas resulting in an explosion inside the oven. Or with too much gas filling up the kitchen....

Typically the issue here is a weak glow bar (hot surface ignitor). When they weaken they open the gas valve slowly and it takes a bit for the ignitor to light up the oven burner.

It is a safe bet that you need to replace it.

Ovens wont light , glow bars work both ovens wont light

the problem is the ignitor or both of the ignitors are not working properly remember just because they glow doesn't mean they are good they have to draw at least 3 amps to open the gas valve if not they will glow all day let me know how you make out

The oven doesn't work ,the ignator doesn't light up. no gas coming

The technical jargon is,.....:
In order for your gas oven to work this is what has to happen: 1. when you turn on the oven, the range sends 120 volts to the glow bar igniter. 2. as the igniter heats up (and starts to glow) it starts using more electricity. 3. when the electric use reaches a set amount (say 3.2 amps) the range knows the glow bar igniter is hot enough to ignite the gas, so it then releases gas through the gas safety valve. 4. when the thermostat tells the oven controller that the temperature has been reached, the control cuts power to the igniter, cutting the amp draw down, causing the safety gas valve to close. 5. process repeats to hold oven temp until you turn off oven.

So,..........the solution is:
most likely your oven igniter burnt out. Find your model number, usually on the range frame just behind the lower drawer or broiler drawer (depending on if it is a self clean gas range or not) and order the correct igniter and replace it.
