Question about Whirlpool Ovens
Oven won't light. see orange glow but no fire comes on. after a few seconds I smell gas.
Gas ovens / stovetop that use gas and not electricity. These work by igniting gas and use actual flame on the the stovetop.
Newest cook top styles, such as the induction or halogen cook tops combine the same style to produce more even heating. Some of these ovens feature thermal limiters or thermostats that regulate the burner system. I offer free advice bcuz God is so good!
The spark igniter tip is dirty (can clean it with either a little wire brush or a piece of fine sandpaper).
2) The Pilot flame is too low, and the tip of the igniter is not in the flame good enough. (the flame acts as a circuit when it touches the tip & completes the circuit).
3) The spark module is no good and needs to be replaced.(But 1 & 2 are your best bet).
spark module does not sense the flame when it's on. The spark igniter is also the flame sensor which provides feedback to the spark module.
Make sure the igniter is properly aligned with the burner lighting holes and it is clean. All lighting holes must be clean too. You can enlarge them using a drill bit one size bigger.
If it would not fix the problem, replace the bake burner and the igniter.
There is a small chance for the spark module itself to be bad as well.
The oven safety valve
(also called the gas valve) is the part that ensures that gas is not released until the igniter has reached the correct temperature needed to ignite the gas. While this part can fail, it is uncommon. If the hot surface igniter does not glow you should first verify that you have voltage to the circuit. This is a live voltage check and should be performed by a qualified person. If voltage is lost at the valve terminals then you should verify the continuity of the bi-metal in the valve using a multi-meter.

SOURCE: Frigidaire FGF326ASA gas oven
after pricing the 2 ignitors and a dual saftey valve (could be all) the best price for all is around $225.or more. Doing the labor myself. Im going to just buy another stove. And I think Ill get one with a pilot light(cheaper to fix) and no self cleaning(dont use much anyway if you are carefull with spills. Price? about $270-370. free del.. and haul off. ibojuan40

That is a bad gas valve. Need too change it out. The glow bar is working but the valve is not opening.

Testimonial: "With the information I gave, I give him thumbs up. I forgot to put in the top burners work fine."
This may sound strange but it is most often the glow plug that is bad. What happens is as the ignitor (glow plug) ages the resistance internally rises, this rise gets to a point where it limits the electrical current just enough that the valve no longer opens.

our ignitor glowed but still was not working right. it has to get to a certain temp before the gas valve will open. try changing it out. fairly inexpensive.
