If your oven won't bake, check these:

Bake igniter
Other causes
Bake igniter Usually when an oven won't bake, it's because the bake igniter is weak or burned out. The igniter is a small, round or rectangular device, that's about 1 inch by 4 to 8 inches. It's near the burner itself.

The burner is the tube-type device the gas flows through before it's ignited. It has many small holes on the sides to let the gas, when ignited, form a long, low flame. If the igniter is weak, if it glows red but doesn't get hot enough, or if it's burned out, the gas doesn't flow to the burner and the burner won't ignite. If this is the problem, you may need to replace either the igniter or the gas safety valve. Usually the igniter is to blame.

Other causes Other reasons that your oven may not bake are:

  • The clock settings are incorrect (if you have timed baking or a self-cleaning oven).

  • The thermostat is defective.

  • The safety valve that prevents accidental gas flow is defective.

  • The selector switch is defective.

SOURCE: Oven does not heat but broiler does

The most common cause of this symptom is a defective ignitor. Oven ignitors can glow and allow enough current through to open the oven gas valve but just not produce enough heat to ignite the gas immediately (see the link below).


In that case, replacing the oven ignitor is the usual solution.

SOURCE: Amana gas oven not working

The ignitor may be too weak to open the gas valve. If you have a volt/ohm meter capable of reading AMPS you can hook up to a ignitor wire and turn the oven ON. If you read less than 3.5 amps replace the ignitor. If 3.5 amps or more are read,replace the gas valve.

SOURCE: Kenmore gas stove, broiler works but oven won't

Hello, I'll start by saying this may sound odd considering the info you provided, "ignitor glows...". It is actually the ignitor you'll need to replace. Being that I do service for sears I've replaced numerous ignitor's, both bake & broil, but bake being most common as it is typically used more frequently. I'll try to explain... The simpliest way to put it is this, the hot surface ignitors function like a large resistor. As the ignitor glows it reaches a value to allow the gas valve to open and lite the burner. If the ignitor is even slightly worn/off it won't ignite the burner, hence it need's to be replaced. Hope that help's explain what & why. If so please take a second to rate the solution I provided here at fixya. Good luck and thanks for visiting fixya. Macmarkus :)

Gas burners on top of stove work but broiler & oven do not heat up.


Hello'
Does your model have an electronic ignition? If so open broiler drawer ,turn on oven and look for bright orange glow. May take a few seconds.If it glows but no or poor flame .replace oven igniter.If no glow at all , check for voltage at igniter when switched on to see if it may be oven thermostat . Get a tech to test if not sure.All easy to fix.



Hope this helps

First thing to suspect would be a weak igniter....see if the amp draw while the igniter is glowing matches the amp rating of the gas valve, the value will be on the side of the valve, if the amp draw of the igniter is lower than the rating of the valve you would need to replace the glow coil/igniter.

JGB900 oven won't work. Range top works, broiler works. No glow in oven. Regulator is on.


Your problem is with the oven ignitor. Remove the racks from the oven, remove bottom shelf. Remove the metal plate covering flame spreader. The igniter should now be visible. Turn oven on and watch the glow from the igniter. It will come on but it wouldnt get too bright, so it wouldnt open the gas valve. After changing the ignitor, oven should light.

The lower oven ignighter does not glow


I had the same problem and swapped the oven igniter with the broiler igniter and the oven now works. This proved the oven igniter itself was the fault, now I have to replace the broiler igniter with a new one(which is much easier to get to).

FYI: An igniter may glow red and still not allow the oven to work. The igniter has to draw a certain amount of electrical current for the main gas valve to open.

Amana broiler problem


Each burner manifold in the oven has its own igniter. If the igniter is defective, the burner assembly will not light. The igniter has to be functioning properly in order for the gas safety valve to open. This is a designed safety feature that prevents free flowing gas from entering the oven cavity without ignition. This reduces the risk of explosions.

There should be a flame spreader metal plate covering the access over the broiler. You will need to access the broiler so you can view the broiler manifold and igniter. Turn the oven setting to broil and make sure the igniter begins to glow. If the igniter fails to glow, replace it. If the igniter does glow, but you still do not have ignition after 90 seconds, the igniter may be weak and still require replacement. The following link explains oven igniter types, their current potential, and how to replace them:

Oven bake ignites usually have lifetime 5-7 years. If igniter glows but gas not came in - replace igniter. Same with broil igniter.

Maytag gas oven mgr5770abb Does not light when I try to use oven. Broiler works fine. When I try to turn on the oven, the broiler igniter does not glow. If the bottom igniter was bad, wouldn't the top one...


first I would check to see if you have power (120v) at the bake igniter..when you set in to bake...use a multmeter..(when you turn on the oven to bake only the bottom igniter will come )

good luck be safe

let me know if I can help
