My gas oven won't ignite, takes several tries to ignite it.

All gas appliances have a thermal cut out this will shut the gas off if the flame goes out the down side is when the thermal cut out becomes faulty it can shut the gas of when you are using the cooker the only fix is to replace the thermal cut out

We have a GE profile spectra (approx 8 years old), the oven lights with a boom the first use of the day. seems to light ok each time after. just started doing it a couple of days ago. any info would be...

That sound very typical of a weak oven igniter. When its cold it takes so long to get to needs to be to ignite gas so gas collects in oven chamber before igniting then as its on it get hot a bit sooner. Eventually the igniter will weaken even more to the point will it will not ignite the gas at any time, replacing it now will prevent that. The part number for the igniter is WB13K21 it could be purchased at your local appliance parts store or online at;

To replace the igniter;
remove oven racks
remove oven door by locking hinges into place and lifting off of oven(if unable to figure how to lock hinges this step can be ommitted but it much easier with door out of the way)
remove oven floor
unscrew igniter from burner bar
disconnect wiring,which will be under storage drawer
pull out old igniter
run new igniter wiring down below to storage drawer area
screw igniter to burner bar
connect wiring
Test to see if works without booms when cold
reinstall oven floor
reinstall door
reinstall racks

I hope i have been able to help you fix your oven,

Kenmore gas range model 911.7388811. Turn on the oven to preheat and after 15-30 seconds there is an F5 code. We opened up the oven and the igniter comes on but then goes off and the code appears. We...

The "F5" fault code means a loss of the relay drive circuit. This can be caused by a faulty oven control, oven sensor circuit, lock motor circuit or loose/corroded connections. See image below. You should be able to access the oven control by raising the top and removing the cover from behind the console. The oven temperature sensor connection can likely be check by removing the oven temperature sensor from inside the oven cavity. NOTE: Disconnect the power supply from the range before raising the top and removing the console cover.

Oven won't work after cleaning

"Auto Clean" means that the control thinks the door is locked. If you can open the door, it's obviously not locked. You can try turning the power off at the breaker. Leave it off for 20 minutes or so. See if this resets the control. If not, the high temps in "auto clean" may have fried one of the monitor switches on the door latch.
Let us know what happens.

Oven takes way too long to heat

This advice is for GAS ovens with glow bar type igniters. This is how to determine if the igniter is bad. This is a fairly simple repair that MOST do-it-yourselfers can accomplish with just a little guidance.

An igniter typically goes bad in one of two ways, the igniter either stops glowing completely, or becomes weak over time and doesn’t produce enough current to open the gas safety valve (in this case the igniter will still glow but the oven still won’t light). Longer ignition times can be another symptom of an igniter possibly going bad. An igniter should only take 30-90 seconds to ignite.

Carborundum (Cylindrical in shape) – needs to produce 2.5 to 3.0 amps for the gas safety valve to work.
Norton (Rectangular in shape) – needs to produce 3.2 to 3.7 amps for the gas safety valve to work.
NOTE: There is a UNIVERSAL FLAT BAR igniter on the market as well, that can be used as a substitute if the igniter type that came with your range is not available.
For this solution, however, we’re going to assume you have a bad igniter and need to replace it. Follows these steps:
NOTE: The same method applies to both the broiler and bake manifold.
  1. UNPLUG the range and turn the gas off if you have a local gas cut-out valve (it is recommended that you do).
  2. Open oven door and remove (if possible). Refer to your owner’s manual to see if there are instructions on how to remove the oven door. Some have spring-loaded locking hinges, while others just lift out. If you cannot figure out how to remove the oven door, use care not to lean on the door or put too much weight on it. A common complaint following any kind of oven maintenance is that the oven door doesn’t shut correctly any longer. This is usually caused by bending the hinges or springs coming loose.
  3. Remove the oven racks, and remove the oven pan. (There are usually two screws either in the back or front of the oven holding the pan in place).
  4. Remove the Flame Spreader. This is a metal plate on top of the manifold.
  5. The igniter will be mounted directly to the gas manifold. Follow the wires that lead to igniter. It will either be plugged into a connector, or be connected together with ceramic wire lugs. Your replacement igniter should come with extra ceramic wire lugs. In the event the plug does not match the one on your range, cut the wires and connect using the ceramic wire lugs. DO NOT use standard wire lugs, they are not heat resistant and will melt.
  6. Unplug the old igniter and remove the mounting screw holding it to the gas manifold.
  7. Install new igniter on gas manifold using care not to handle the element on the igniter with your hands. The oil from your hands can cause damage and/or premature failure. The igniter is also considered FRAGILE.
  8. Reconnect the wires using the recommendations mentioned in Step 5.
  9. Plug in the range, turn the gas valve back on and do a visual test by setting the oven temperature to the desired range. Allow 30 – 90 seconds for the igniter to light the gas. Turn oven off and allow sufficient time to cool. If the oven has only been lit for a minute or so, the cool down period will be brief.
  10. Reinstall the flame spreader, oven pan, and racks. Reinstall door if necessary.
Most igniters cost around $50. Prices will vary with models. I hope this information is helpful.
