SOURCE: Magic chef oven

change the bottom ignighter just because it glowes doesn't mean its getting hot enough to open the safety valve you should see two screws at the bottom of the floor of the oven cavity after removing the racks remove those and remove the floor then you will see a deflector shield remove that to get access to the ignighter take out the two screws and install the new ignightor and reassemble

SOURCE: oven quit working

Hi. this is common in many old gas range ovens. There is a set of coils that are attached to the gas valve assembly. These coils , when activated and operational, open and close the main and secondary valves in this unit. They are controlled by the main ERC(clock/oven control board). I recommend checking these coils and there respective wiring harnesses. if the clips and wires are worn and corroded, simply replace the entire wire harness.

Now, if the wiring harness and wires that are connected to the coils look good and there are no signs of corrosion on the wires and connector clips, this will confirm that the coils have failed and you will need to replace them.

You can also preform an additional test with a multimeter. simply connect your multimeter or voltage meter to both terminal posts located on the coils. once your meter is connected, start the oven cycle. you should register some sort of current during this test at this time. if the current is sufficient and the coils do not initiated the valve action, this will confirm coil failure. if the meter dosen't register a current during oven operation, this will confirm ERC(control) failure. you will have to replace the Oven control board in this case.

The Most common issue in this situation will most defiantly be the coil assembly and not the control.

Please rate and god bless:)

SOURCE: The oven of GE Profile range simply stopped igniting

If it is a ge it would have a glow bar ignitor, either a flat rectangle shaped or a round ignitor. That is want the problem is 95% of the time. It is pretty easy to do. The floor of the stove will come right out and it probably has two screws in the back corners you can see. Remove them and the floor will lift out and you can see the burner and the ignitor.

SOURCE: one of the oven ignitors does not work

Most likely replacing the ignitor will fix it. I usually replace Viking ignitors with Maytag ones, part number 12400035 (you'll need splice wires and use included wire nuts to connect those, though). Those have a little shorter base, which does not affect anything. Replace both bake ignitors if you can, otherwise, one of the burners will ignite slower and shut off faster, resulting in uneven bake.

SOURCE: Me GE Gas oven is not working, but broiler and range do ?

I am working with model JGBP26WEH1WW GE Gas range: You do not need to remove the back or even turn over, just remove the storage pan at the base of the unit and disconect the two plugs (unique plugs). You will need to splice your old conectors to your new igniter. Yes you have the correct igniter for that model.

Ignitor isnt working


The oven ignitor should have a resistance reading of about 3.2 to 3.6 ohms. If the readings are out of this specification or show open replace the ignitor. measure the resistance of the oven valve. The gas valve should have about 1.5 ohms of resistance. If the gas valve is OK, the control board is suspect. The ignitor needs 120vac to work.

See if the ignitor glows. If not check for power to the range then out of the control where the wires lead to the ignitor. If it does glow check the current. If less than 3 amps or the ignitor glows dimly replace the ignitor.

Oven has stopped working


Bad oven ignitor, to check it, turn on the oven, check Voltage on 2 ignitor wires, it should have approx. 110v, if yes, change the oven ignitor, if not then check oven safety valve of oven thermostat, but 90% is the oven thermostat. also make sure the oven tube is not corroded at the ignitor area, if so, change the oven at the same time. Have fun.

GE gas oven won't heat


did you do it your self or did you have some one else do it for you? I ask the question because the electricity most be unplug before you do it, If any of those wires made contact or spark. Now the safety valve it's also bad, you can test that by putting a tester for the 2 wires that connets to the ignitor to see if you are getting any power when thermostat is on. if there is power replace ignitor, if not getting power replace safety valve. Or maybe your clock is set on automatic, Set it on manual.
