If you remove the bottom of your oven underneath the racks there should be a ceramic element connected with a clip of some sort and one screw to hold it in place, note be sure not to touch the new element with your bare hands the oils may cause it to go out prematurely. as for parts you should be able to get them from sears or any other appliance dealer just give them your make and model and they should be able to help you.

SOURCE: Oven will not light but smell gas

i think you probably have a weak ignitor. does the ignitor glow orange?
if it does, or i should say when it does, just tap lightly on the gas valve and see if that causes the gas to flow into the burner and then light.
you can use the handle of a screwdriver to tap with and it wont need to much force.
if this does work, then just replace the ignitor. when they get weak they will glow, but wont draw enough current thru the gas valve to allow it to open. your valve does get voltage but it opens when enough current draw opens the bi-metal portion of the valve to allow gas to flow.

SOURCE: I have a Garland Stove and Oven. The oven is not working right.

Hi there, most of the newer unit parts are available still, but not seeing it makes it hard to guarantee. I would advise calling a Factory Authorized Servicer in your area, having a problem with gas entering the oven, and not igniting is a serious problem, and it sounds like the pilot is lit in the oven, but could be malfunctioning.
Here is the telephone for Garland: Tel: 1.800.424.2411.
They can recommend someone in your area, or check your local phone book, for Restaurant repair companies, and contact them.
Hope that helps, and thank you.

SOURCE: whirlpool gas oven sf315pemb1- oven not heating

Hi, It sounds like the ignitor has gone bad. Remove the floor panel in the oven and locate the ignitor fastened to the burner. There should be 120V going to the ignitor harness.
If you have voltage but no ignition, change the ignitor.
I hope this helps you. Please let me know if I can assist you further.

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 :)

The oven safety valve
(also called the gas valve) is the part that ensures that gas is not released until the igniter has reached the correct temperature needed to ignite the gas. While this part can fail, it is uncommon. If the hot surface igniter does not glow you should first verify that you have voltage to the circuit. This is a live voltage check and should be performed by a qualified person. If voltage is lost at the valve terminals then you should verify the continuity of the bi-metal in the valve using a multi-meter.

The oven burner igniter
commonly known as the hot surface igniter is used in modern gas oven burners to open the gas valve and to ignite the gas. As the igniter draws electric current it will heat to a high temperature and glow, as well as cause the bi-metal in the oven safety valve to warp and open the valve releasing the gas to be ignited. This sequence normally takes about a minute. Igniters come in both flat and round styles and are very fragile. If the burner does not light then you should check the igniter first. If the igniter does not glow at all, then check for power to the circuit. This is a live voltage check and should be performed by a qualified person. If power is present then the igniter may be open circuit and can be checked for continuity with a multi-meter. If the igniter is glowing, but the burner is not lighting, the igniter may be weak and still be at fault because it requires a certain amount of current draw to open the valve. This check requires the use of an amp meter and should be performed by a qualified person. If the igniter is defective then it must be replaced.

Mod# xfg374lvq stove: Both the oven and the broiler will ignite, but only stay on for a few seconds. It does not try to reignite. Is this the control module?


Most modern ovens use an electronic control board
to control the oven functions. These models will use the control board to operate the oven safety valve on a gas range or oven, and the bake and broil elements on an electric range or oven. If there is no power to the igniter circuit, or the element circuits, then you should check the control board to verify that there is power at the appropriate output relay. These are live voltage checks and should be performed by qualified persons only. If there is no output voltage then the control should be replaced.

The oven burner igniter
commonly known as the hot surface igniter is used in modern gas oven burners to open the gas valve and to ignite the gas. As the igniter draws electric current it will heat to a high temperature and glow, as well as cause the bi-metal in the oven safety valve to warp and open the valve releasing the gas to be ignited. This sequence normally takes about a minute. Igniters come in both flat and round styles and are very fragile. If the burner does not light then you should check the igniter first. If the igniter does not glow at all, then check for power to the circuit. This is a live voltage check and should be performed by a qualified person. If power is present then the igniter may be open circuit and can be checked for continuity with a multi-meter. If the igniter is glowing, but the burner is not lighting, the igniter may be weak and still be at fault because it requires a certain amount of current draw to open the valve. This check requires the use of an amp meter and should be performed by a qualified person. If the igniter is defective then it must be replaced.

The oven sensor: works with the oven control board to regulate the oven temperature. If there is an oven temperature problem, this sensor might be defective. The sensor can be tested by using an ohm meter. As temperature rises, the resistance measurement also rises. The manufacturer of the oven sensor determines the correct resistance, Oven temperature problems can be caused by other things, but this is one of the common causes.
Beware on some models now most of these ovens they are electronic and they are integrated into the control itself
some different sensor ohm readings at room temp. approx 16 ohms at room temperature and at 350?F it is 29~33 ohms.

The oven safety valve
(also called the gas valve) is the part that ensures that gas is not released until the igniter has reached the correct temperature needed to ignite the gas. While this part can fail, it is uncommon. If the hot surface igniter does not glow you should first verify that you have voltage to the circuit. This is a live voltage check and should be performed by a qualified person. If voltage is lost at the valve terminals then you should verify the continuity of the bi-metal in the valve using a multi-meter.

Oven won't heat but burners light #jgbp28eek3db


Most likely its your electric ignitor. Remove racks from your oven. Remove the bottom plate in stove and it gives you access to the ignitor. Turn the oven on and see if your ignitor glows. If not replace ignitor. If it does than check the amperage going from ignitor to to gas valve. If you have anymore questions Please feel free to comment me.

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.

The oven burner will not ignite.


Because the glowbar is glowing does not necessarily make it good.
Turn off the gas to the stove. Remove the oven racks. Remove the bottom oven pan. Remove the flame spreader. This gives you access to the glow bar and gas valve.
Put a clamp on amp meter around one wire of the glowbar. Turn the oven control on to BAKE.
If the glowbar reads 3 amps or less,replace the glowbar ignitor.
If the glowbar reads good,check the burner tube for a white ash buildup. It can be cleaned with a wire brush. Look closely near the glowbar section of the burner.
Check all the wire connections for the gas valve.
If the glowbar is good and the ash deposits are gone and the oven still will not ignite,the next step is to replace the gas safety valve.

Gas stove


The JGRP17 (not a full model number) does not have a pilot light. It uses glow bar ignitors. Watch the burner at the top of your oven when you turn on broil. After a short time the glow bar ignitor begins to glow, and a short time after that the broiler burner should ignite. The same thing should happen with the oven burner under the floor of the oven when you attempt to bake. If the igniter does not glow, or glows and burner does not light, replace ignitor. (looks like part # WB2X9154)
