All of the items you mention that do work, are 120 volt items.
All the items that do NOT work are 220 volt items.
Sounds like you have a voltage problem, you will need to use a meter to check if you have 220 volts a/c to the outlet the stove plugs into. Take care when doing the following, you will be around live voltage and could get hurt. If you are uncomfortable working with a live circuit best to call someone in to do it for you. Check for 220v at the outlet for the stove (where the stove plugs into), if you have it there, go to where the cord attaches to the stove and check at that point. You should have either a 3 or 4 wire cord on the stove, On the rear of the stove there is a terminal block that the cord is fastened to. Between RED and BLACK you should have 220v, between RED and WHITE and BLACK and WHITE you should see 120v. Another thing to check is that the nuts holding the wires from the cord to the terminal block on the stove are turned down tight. A loose connection there will give you the same problem you have as well.

Hi Tamiw and oh Mighty Guru Text,.
I had the same problem with the oven not emitting a flame from the burner, but at the same time- the ignitor lit up and heated the oven enough to say it is 'HOT'.
It seems to be an intermittent problem';sometimes it emits a flame while other times I would wait 11 minutes with the dial set to 400 to emit flames.,
Detailed description of PROBLEM and steps I have already taken:
The Ignitor always turns on, and lights up.
1. After the initial cleaning of the burner vents with a coarse bristle cleanibng brush, I turned the oven dial on and everything seemed to be working fine. ie: ignitor turned on, blue flames came out of the burner and maintained a constant temperature.
Then,-after I had performed a "self-clean", to see if this feature would now work, it did! I used the oven for bake a few hours later......
The same symptom ocurred, the ignitor went on, but no flames were observed, YES, there was heat coming from the oven, but NO flames coming out of the burner mechanism:
The Ignitor turned on, but no "flames" were observed. Heat was given off from the glowbar, but no flames. I did NOT smell any gas, only what an inside of the oven smells like after cleaning.
From my records, I had replaced the thermostat about 4 years ago.
Today, I tried this again, and sure enough the ignitor lit up, and the burner was emitting blue flames. But when I put the "FLAME SPREADER" back, and turned the oven OFF, then on again to bake cookies, the oven didnt seem to heat up completely.
Could this be intermittent? or Could the flame spreader hamper the burner operation? (Earlier when I loosened the nut on the flame spreader the bolt broke. I tried to replace with another nut, but the bolt/screw was too short for contact.) Could this contribute to the problem? Does the flame spreader need to be tightly screwed for the burner to function correctly?
One thing I am noticing, is that it takes LONGER for the flames to come thru (than the average 90 seconds)
For example: Ten minutes ago I set the dial to 350. 5 minutes went by, and no flames, then set the dial to 450 after ten minutes oven was hot, but no flames?
I THEN SET TIMER FOR ANOTHER 5 MINUTES, AND 1 MINUTE LATER THE FLAMES TURNED ON. Total preheating time for flames to come on today = 11 minutes.
I have a "MULTIMETER" from DIGITEK Model # DS830B+ This should work to see the amperage, but I dont remember how to test it! the MAX OHMs are 2000, MA 200 Max, 500V
Can I use this to test the current? How would I do this?
Lastly, HOW DIFFICULT IS IT TO CHANGE OUT THE IGNITOR> Meaning do I have to shut off the gas as well as the power circuit?
Ok, hope this helps.
