Burners work properly. Stove won't heat. Pilot light is out. Won't re-light with a match. When the stove is on the rectangular flint block heats up and glows orange.

Hi, Jus because it glows that does not mean it is not bad...
The ignitor is not working right and is going bad....
have the repair man replace the ignitor, or DIY....

Oven Problems Replacing the Igniter

The oven does not turn on. however, the stove top

You may have a bad igniter on the oven manifold. The broiler and oven use separate igniters. So, if the broiler works, you don't have a gas problem. No ignition is most commonly attributed to an oven igniter that is going bad. As these igniters age, they become weak and require replacement. The following link explains some theory behind how they work and how to replace one:

Replacements parts can be purchased at any of the following web sites:

Prices vary, so shop and compare.

NOTE: If the replacement igniter comes with a connector plug that does not match the one on your range, you will be instructed to cut the old connector plug off and splice the wires together using a set of ceramic wire lugs that are included in the replacement kit. DO NOT attempt to use standard wires lugs. They will melt due to the extreme heat in an oven. The ceramic lugs and the wires on the igniter are heat resistant.

NOTE: If BOTH oven features do not work, these features are controlled by the Electronic Oven Control (EOC) board. This is the clock/timer assembly on the operator console. It is possible for the control board to fail and disable both oven features. If you have any questions about this repair, please let me know. I hope this helps you.

The oven is not firing up, though there is gas getting to the stove top.

unit is a pilotless ignition therefore check the hot surface igniter. see if the igniter heats up. check for loose spade connectors where the wires plug into the socket. this unit has an infinite resistance but won't work if the resistance isn't there.

You have to light burners on stovetop with a match all the time.

The pilots for the range top are beneath the top of the range top. YOu will see them if they are there. YOu stove may use electronic ignition and you can hear the sparking when you turn the knob to the "light" position.

If it is electronic ignition, make sure the stove is plugged into an operating outlet

GE gas stove the burners on top work, the oven won't get hot

The most common reason a gas oven won't heat is a bad igniter. It is located near the valve and burner under the oven bottom. You can usually see it glow orange just before the fire lights. Most GE ranges take a cylindrical igniter part #WB2X9154 or #WB13K21 rectangular igniter.

Oven pilot light won't light

Part of the problem was my own ignorance about this particular Kenmore gas oven. It doesn't even have a pilot light. Instead, there is an electric heating element close to the burner which gets so hot that it ignites the gas. It seems that the heating element also doubles as a temperature sensor, so that it opens the gas valve only when the heating element is hot enough to ignite the gas. This heating element, called the "ignitor", no longer gets hot in my oven even though there is 120VAC applied to it when the oven knob is turned on. Therefore, the ignitor is defective. I ordered a new one on-line from "Appliance Parts of America" for $31.50 plus shipping, and this should fix the problem. If it does NOT, I'll add to this post.
