The gas valve operates on "passed through" electricity from the ignitor - if you have a marginal ignitor, then the valve will give you problems. Intermittent problems are the worst to diagnose, but the way you are describing it, my first action would be to replace the ignitor. If it doesn't work after that, then try the valve, but be prepared for the price tag cause it's kinda scary. Good luck.

I have a gas stove. The oven is not getting gas. The pilot light is lit, and the range works normally. Do you have any idea why the oven is not getting gas?

It won't heat up... even though there is a flame


Check The Power Source

If the gas oven won't turn on, the first thing to do is check the power source. Most modern gas ovens are electrically powered. Check to make sure the oven is plugged in and the breaker isn't tripped.

Check the Heat Source

When a gas oven won't heat, the pilot light can also be set too low; if the pilot is lit but the oven isn't catching, adjust the flame.

Newer gas ovens use electric ignitors that produce sparks. If the oven doesn't heat, the ignitor could be broken.

The oven pilot does not light. The broiler will not work. The only thing that does is the light. GE XL44 range. The burners light and the pilots stay lit.


    If you have standing pilots, make sure the pilot for the oven/broiler is lit as well.  When you turn the thermostat up to call for heat, you should see the pilot get larger. That larger pilot flame heats a hydraulic sensor and opens the main burner valve.

    Tappan TGFS26C, Oven igniter not even


    Lets take the oven problem first. Sounds like you have a Hot Surface Ignitor problem. This is the device that glows and lights the burner. You can buy a universal ignitor at most appliance or heating and air conditioning supply houses. Note carefully how the old one is mounted. You may have to make some adjustments to mount the new ignitor, but it MUST be close to the gas burner like the old one! You don't smell gas because the gas valve will not open until the ignitor is hot. All ignitors work with the same voltage, so simply connect the new wires to the old ones.

    I'm not certain if you have a standing pilot for the stove top burners or electronic ignition. Remove the top panel to check. If you have a gas pilot, relight it. If electronic ignition, clean the ignitors. If that does not solve the problem you may have to call a technician, as these systems can be complex.

    Hope this helps.
