Why can't I light the oven?

Electric appears good. Clock works. Glow coil does not heat up.

    Update: I suspected the ignitier coil was the issue since it was not glowing. I couldn't get a good look at it, so I used my cell phone to reach inside and take some pictures of it.One of the attached pictures shows the igniter in place, the other shows it removed. The apparent break in the coil told me that my suspicions were probably correct. I found an instructional video online that showed how to test it. It tested bad. I called a local appliance parts store and found an OEM replacement for $66.40 in stock. I also checked online and could have ordered it for under $25.00 but would have had to done without an oven for 2-3 days and I had taken off work early today to get this repair completed. Total repair time (including troubleshooting) was maybe 2 hours. Replacement was easy. 2 screws held the unit in place and they were easy to access. The electrical connection was made via two ceramic wire nuts and the new unit came with two new ones and the leads were plenty long to make the required connections. Total repair cost; $66.40. Total repair time; approx. 2 hours. Tools needed; 1/4 inch nut driver. Estimated dollar savings; $200.00. Safety Reminder: Disconnect electrical supply and shut off gas supply before begining repairs.

Why wont my bottom oven heat up, it will ignite but wont heat,has the bulb anything to do with it,its blown HELP ZANUSSI ZCG660GXC LPG gas with electric ignition and clock.


The gas valve for the lower oven won't open after the igniter starts glowing. If there is no orange glow from the igniter, then it needs to be replaced.

Oven wont heat up, the grill does and the clock, timer works


Thanks for choosing FixYa and welcome. If you have a electric oven or a gas oven that won't heat or doesn't heat properly, here are some things you will need to check. The most likely cause of a oven not heating correctly is a defetive heating element. You have two types of heating elements in your oven. The bottom element(s) are the baking elements. The element(s) on the top are the broil elements. If you don't see the bright red glow from the element, chances are they are not working or not working correctly. If a heating element is bad, you need to replace the entire element. If your oven is warm and not correctly hot, one of the elements may be bad. In most ovens, when you preheat, both elements are used. This would make the oven to appear like it is working correctly but it is not. If the elements are not working, they might not be getting power. Test the wires to the elements with a voltage meter to make sure they are getting power before you decide to change them out. Many electrical ovens have a sensor that monitors the oven temperture. Ovens that have this sensor usually contain a digital display on the oven. The sensor could be defective. Those without the sensor use the basic mechanical system to control the oven temperature. You also want to check the thermostat sensing bulb. Make sure the bulb is good and has not come loose. Now, if you have a gas range oven that doesn't heat properly, first, you want to check your bake igniter. It may have burned out or it could be not working properly. It will be located near your burner. It is also possible that you are not getting gas to the burner. If so, it may be the gas safety valve or the igniter. You need to check your selector switch and thermostat as well. They may be defective. Always make sure you test the parts for power with a voltage meter of some type before you decide to change the part. If you have a part that appears to not be working, it may not be getting power because of a bad wire or broken connection. Thank you for your time and thanks for choosing FixYa.

It doesn't turn on - no ignitor glow, suddenly


Hi and welcome to FixYa. I am Kelly. Without a model number we are pretty much shooting from the hip here. Having said that it takes all of the following to make the oven burner light:

1. Gas pressure to the gas valve and good solenoids (2 ea)
2. Power to Oven control and selector knob set above min temp
3. Over Temp sensor closed
4. Temp control "thermocouple or thermistor" functional
5. A functioning ignitor

So if you have power to the unit... and we assume the oven control is working.. suspects are:

a. Open ignitor
b. Open flame sensor
c. Open over temp sensor
d. Thermocouple or thermistor (depending on model)
e. Open coil on gas valve

Determining which of the above has failed is performed with an Ohm Meter.

If there is more that we can do for you just respond here.

Thanks for using FixYa.

Oven comes on for 5 min then shuts down everything even the keyboard


Same problem here on JKP15WOW1WW. The cycle starts like this:
1) Open circuit Breaker
2) Open oven panel and push ribbon connector to ERC. Replace planel.
3) Close circuit breaker
4) Run to oven, notice clock flashing some time but not 12:00 and start Bake. Bake button beeps and starts bake coil.
5) Within 5 minutes hear a beep and all buttons on panel are unresponsive. Bake continues. if oven light is on it continues to glow. Only button that responds with a beep (and not to clear bake or oven light) is Clear botton.
Rinse..wash..lather...repeat...

I have a frigidaire oven model # PLEB30S8CCB won't get above 290


The coils should glow red when working. If the lower (bake) element does not glow it may be burnt out. Some ovens cycle the bake and broil elements during preheat and that mey be why you are getting some heat.

Lights grill and fan work but oven isnt heating up


Hi there,

On our oven, we have to reset the clock before the oven will work. I think it's because of the automatic timer features.

Yours is a slightly different model, but on ours we have to press the two buttons with arrows on, at the same time as turning the clock dial. Once this is done, the oven should work again.

Good luck.

Frididaire gas oven won't light


Does the cooktop burners work? if they do then the problem is either the safety valve or the glow plug (even though it glows). Try tapping the safety valve. If the oven lights up change the glow plug.Otherwise change the safety valve
