I have an old wolf convection oven pilot lights, not the burners

I have an old wolf convection oven with a manual pilot and a baso gas valve. after following the leads from the motor and lights, I managed to get the lights to work. I changed the switches for both the fan motor and the lights. The unit was working well for half the day, but now the pilot comes on but the burners wont fire up. I jumped the thermostat and it did not solve the problem. I was tapping the solenoid on the baso valve and when my screwdriver touched it and a small electrical "fliberdigibit" behind the valve, the burners fired right up! I dont know what the thing is behind the valve but it has a lead coming from the solenoid valve and a lead coming from the t-stat. help! It wont fire up again... could the solenoid be failing?

Hello, even though the igniter is glowing it does not mean it is drawing the correct amps to open the safety valve. If your igniter is glowing orange replace it. Igniters should glow brillient yellow to the point where you cant look at it. replace the igniter and you will be good to go. Good Luck!! Mike

heres about the cheapest solution to try goto www.marcone.com under contact us there is a 1800 number this is the cheapest appliance parts dealer and the largest in the world .Yes you can replace the ignitors and the leads would be termed as harnesses not quite sure what you are refering to switches that sit on top of gas valves though do you have a site or a picture also send your model number as well and when you goto marcone just get a quoted price from them and then check wolf as well the manufacturer if you have any further questions message me back and please remember when our chat has concluded to rank how this opinion has helped Thanks again Rick

p.s about the most reasonable path would be to take out the ol multimeter and assure that you have the same amount of voltage going to each ignitor in most ovens this is controled by a spark modulator you can also remove each ignitor and do continuity tests on them to assure they are functioning properly as well remember to message me back your model number

Pilot light issue


you cannot light the pilot on that oven manually. that oven is eletronic ignition. take off the panel under the doors, turn on the oven, and turn the thermostat to 350.
if you see sparking on both the right and left burners, you and it doesnt light, you need to see if the gas solenoid on the right side of the burner is getting power. if it is and nothing lit relace it.
if it is not, replace the ignition board

I have a gas garland convection oven 10-15 years old. I see the red button to relight the pilot light but I can't find the pilot light itself. Can you tell me where I should be looking?


On the main bake burner is going to be a small pilot burner,got to lift off the oven floor to get to it. It is going to look something like this picture and is attached usually to the side of the main burner.To light the pilot,push that red button light the small pilot burner..hold in the red button for about 20 seconds..release the red button..pilot should be on..if goes off the thermocoupler is going to be in need of replacement

THE OVEN BURNER WILL NOT LIGHT. THE IGNITION SYS IS WORKING. I CAN HEAR AND SEE A SPARK, BUT THE PILOT WILL NOT LIGHT.


If you can hear and see the spark lighting that acually means there is no gas entering. please check that you have have the pilot knob in possition and and and the pilot pibe and orifice is not blocked with dirt.

Where is the pilot light in oven?


Hi,
Pull out the bottom tray of your oven...under there you will see the heat shield over the burner...take out the screws holding that and the ignitor is all the way in the back beside the burner...

I replaced what I thought was a bad igniter.But still had no glow from new igniter. Must be something else.Where do I go from here?


Hello there: The oven bake burner and ignition components are located beneath the oven cavity. In most cases the oven bottom panel can be removed for access (check your owner's manual) but on some models the oven burner has to be accessed from below in the warming or broiler drawer area. If accessing from the top, a 'flame spreader' (flat metal plate) above the burner may also need to be removed to see the burner itself.Many ovens use a single oven burner in which case they only have a single gas valve and ignitor. The same burner is used for both bake and broil functions, the broil usually being in the drawer area below the oven. Higher-end models may have a separate bake and broil burner. On such a system there will be two ignitors, one for each burner. They may also employ a 'dual' gas valve (see illustration above) instead of using a separate valve for each burner.Some range models may have an additional broil burner located at the top of the oven cavity which may be referred to as a 'waist high' broil. If not, broiling usually takes place in the drawer area below the oven, which uses the same bake burner for the broil function. Most gas ranges currently available employ one of 3 basic gas ignition systems; pilot ignition, hot surface ignition system (which uses a 'glow bar' or 'glow coil' - aka an "ignitor") and a spark ignition system. The latter two being referred to as "electronic ignition" systems as they use electricity in one form or another to operate the oven heating system. Only the pilot ignition system has an actual "pilot" (which is a small but real "flame") which might need manual lighting.
If the surface burners of a range are a spark ignition type, the oven IS one of the possible kinds of electronic ignition systems and thus will not usually have a "pilot" which needs lighting. Be aware though that just because the surface burners might light via a spark doesn't necessarily mean the oven uses the spark type ignition system too.
There is one older style of electronic ignition system which does also use an oven pilot but it is very rare and such a system hasn't been used in oven models since the early to mid 70's. It is the 'constant pilot' *electronic ignition* system.


Making Observations
The oven burner's operation will usually need to be directly observed while in operation as the first step to troubleshooting problems.Ignition System Type Links
Ignition System Types:
  • Pilot Ignition
  • Electronic Ignition with Constant Pilot (rare)
  • Electronic Ignition with Glow Ignitor (most common)
  • Spark Ignition System

  • Is there continuity between the oven gas valve's terminals?


    Hot Surface ('Glow Bar') Ignition System (most common)
    This is the most popular system currently used for ovens and is comprised of a control mechanism (whether thermostat or electronic control), the oven ignitor and an oven gas valve.


    What happens in this style ignition system is that the thermostat or electronic control switches power to the oven ignitor and gas valve circuit which are connected in series (one after the other). As power flows through the ignitor it heats and draws current (measured in amperage). Once the oven ignitor draws a specific amount of current the oven valve opens to allow gas to flow to the oven burner where the glowing hot ignitor (glow bar) ignites it. Power must continually flow through the ignitor and oven gas valve for gas to be released into the oven burner to create a flame.

    It should usually only take in the area of 30-90 seconds for the oven ignitor to reach the proper resistance to allow the proper amperage to reach the gas valve to open it and for the ignitor to ignite the gas at the oven burner.

    Pilot light still going out


    If this oven has a "stack" (where the hot gases & heat vent to your hood) air could be blowing down the stack affecting the pilot. Simple test, Bic lighter lit at the top of the stack in the middle of the opening. If the flame is being sucked down the stack, then you have air blowing the pilot out. How old is the thermocouple on this unit ? Pilot flame heats this up to send a signal to your main gas valve to open up so the burners light. A weak t-couple could be your problem. Hope this helps
