Make sure you have 120 volts to the oven wiring terminal. Could be a completely broken ignitor this time. Disconnect the ignitor wires and attach a volt meter to the incoming ignitor wires. Turn the oven on. If you read 120 volts the ignitor is bad. If you read no voltage the oven control is bad.

I turn on the stove and about a minute later it shakes the side of the house and lights. Heats well and works fine after doing this. It's a kenmore and about thirteen years old. What could be happening.


There could be expansion issues with the oven. When the oven heats up the sides or bottom could be flexing causing this. If it is a gas range with an oven igniter it could be the igniter is getting weak and the gas is not lighting right away and causes a small explosion when it does light. If it has an igniter look to see how bright it is. If it is orange in color it is probably the problem. They should glow a bright yellow. If the igniter has never been changed it could be the problem. Hope this helps.

Oven will not light ,broiler and top of range light fine


the ignitor is not working its bad,you should see a bright orange glow below the oven base just as when you start the broiler look up at the top of the oven and watch this ignitor glow before ignition,the bottom should do the same,you can also see this from the back side of the range at the base,if you don't use the broiler you can use that ignitor for the oven ignitor as these ignitors are identical,but then you will have no broiler

No gas flow to oven, glow bar ignites no flame no smell of gas. safety gas safety valve was replaced


With the glow bar going and no gas smell that means you have a good circuit from control to valve and glow bar. For that glow bar to work it must change in resistance. If it is weak it won't change enough resistance to make the gas valve bi-metal open. Also the gas safety valve does not come preset and usually is bottomed out all the way for propane. You must adjust the orifice to aprox the same height as the old one to get the propah gas output for natural gas.

if your old valve did not leak and has continuity between the terminals it is fine. The ignitor/glowbar is weak. If it is dim orange that is usually a way to tell. Bumping the stove makes the bi-metal come on also is a sign of a weak glowbar

Hoping someone can point me in the right direction. Oven won't light, but the stove top burners are fine. Don't smell any gas or any indication the oven is attempting to light....


next time send the brand name and model number so i can look up your machine,if it's a gas stove most likely it will be a bad ignitor,even if the ignitor glows it still could be bad,if the flame doesn't ignite and the ignitor is glowing change it out,if it isn't glowing pull out the ignitor and check it with a meter,common problem.

I have a whirlpool oven model #sf368lepw. The stovetop burners will light but the oven will not light. The igniter is working and I can hear and smell gas flowing but it wll not light. What do I need to...


you need to look at the igniter and see if it is orange. the ignitor or glow coil as it can also be called, needs to glow white hot in order for the oven to ignite. when it gets orange it needs to be replaced. hope this helps.

Gas oven ignites only intermittent


I assume you are saying the oven will not light but you can see the igniter glowing....if this is the case you will still need to replace the igniter, igniters need to be drawing a certain amperage before the will open the gas safety valve. in this case your igniter is glowing unevenly orange and is old - it is not pulling enough amps to open the valve. Replace it and you should be good to go If you have any other questions please feel free to comment. Good Luck!!! Mike

Oven will not light, hot surface ignitor is working, is this a safety valve problem?


While the ignitor is glowing, tap on the valve with the handle of a large screwdriver. If the valve opens and the burner lights- replace the ignitor. If not replace the valve-depending on age I will sometimes do both right then.

Oven does not light


Try this:  . See if the ignitor is in the direct path of the gas. If not move it slightly to be closer to that path. Maybe something his it and it is out of position. Gas + Glow(together) = Fire The other possibility is that somethng in in the path of the gas leading to the glow coil.
