HI. this will, ultimately, lead to a bad switch. i would advise to inspect the wiring harness that links the switch to the actual lights. The wires may have become worn or separated from the light housing. If the wires check out ok, and the contacts are not corroded, simply replace the switch.

My oven won't lite and there is no gas smell


either the gas valve is bad or the ignitor/glow coil is bad,most likely the glow coil as gas valves don't fail,but both are in a series circuit and rely on each other to operate and light the flame,check both with a continuity tester and if they show resistance they are good,but get the specifications on how much resistance on the gas valve and NEVER connect the gas valve alone or directly to 120 volts a.c.

The gas is connected on the rear side of the stove but the pilot light is not lit, nor will it light. trying to trouble shoot the problem before deciding to purchase a new oven/range. Also, I remember...


You may have a pilotless ignition.Check around door frames for model #plate.
Also , open broiler door ,turn on oven and look inside . If you see an orange glow appear after awhile, that is the electronic igniter and you have an electronic ignition(no pilot).In this case the top burners use a spark ignition system.If you don,t hear clicking when you turn on a burner your ignition module might be bad.
Easily fixed though.

I have an Turbochef NGC oven that keeps tripping the breaker. There are no faults but seems to only trip the breaker when the sausage setting is entered.


Hi,
BEFORE WORKING ON OVEN MAKE SURE YOU TURN IT OFF AND DISCHARGE CAPACITOR.IF YOU DON'T KNOW THEN STOP HERE AND CALL TECHNICIAN.
If you know how to use multimeter than check the resistance of Convenctional heater and the IR element.
CC heater .....not sure how many ohms
IR should be 14 ohms
If both are in specification then replace breaker(thermostat in the oven).
Usually if breaker trips 4-5 times then its good to replace it.

reply me if you need more help

Both lights on the top oven work when using it as an oven but when using it as a grill, they don't! There doesn't appear to be any other fault as the oven and grill still work fine. Any thoughts...


The unit is working as it should. The top oven lights will only come on when the top oven control knob is turned on. The grill control does NOT turn the lights on. If you want to see what you are grilling, then you should turn the top oven control on to its first position. This works even if the grill is operating.

Hi I lost my manual guide so I don't how to turn the oven on. Please give any idea to use the oven


Hi there,

As I'm unsure of your oven model, I can only give general instructions.

Look for a dial or switch that indicates temperature and turn it on if your oven is electric.

If you have a gas oven, you may have to turn a dial and push it at the same, this is to produce a gas flow. If it makes a "clicking" sound it has peizo ignition and will light itself.

If there is no sound, look in the oven for a lever (usually on the floor) and pull it. This will produce a gas flow which you will have to light with a match. Usually you place the lighted match over an existing hole in the oven floor and this will light the oven. TAKE GREAT CARE!!!! The hole is usually at the back of the oven whilst the lever is usually located towards the front of the oven!

I hope this is of some assistance.

Gas stove. Oven won't light/heat. Broiler does still work. Stove is between 7-8 years old.


Hi,

Welcome to FixYa.

Based on your description, "Oven won't light/heat. Broiler does still work" the hot surface ignitor for the bake burner is likely the problem.

Here's what you can try to varify if it's indeed the ignitor...if you're mechanically inclined.

**Turn off the breaker or unplug the range and turn off the gas to the appliance before attempting any service...safety first**

if the boiler has the same ignitor ( some do some don't ) one could swape the ignitor`s ( very carefully, they are very fragile and don`t like to be handled ) this will allow you to use the bake burner, but it will leave you without the broil function...until you have a diagnosis and can purchase another.

This will confirm or dismiss if the ignitor is at fault...99% of the time this is the case.

You should be able to find one at most brick & mortar appliance parts vendors or on-line depot's such as "repairclinic.com", "searspartsdirect.com" to name a couple.

You can ask for part number 12400035, That is the most common ignitor and is for Maytag, but built by "Norton" for gas oven`s.

I would still double check with your model number with the part`s professional`s.

Hope that help`s. Let me know if I can assist you further and good luck.

Thank`s for visiting "fixya" for your repair needs.

The ignition goes on but gas dose not goes on.the oven is GE about 20 year old. the ignition is electric. Not sure model # AT501820J


by ignition goes on I assume that you can see it glowing ..these are just tiny heating elements and when they get to a certain current they open the gas valve and it ignites. These little elements over time start to loose there effectivness and either take a realy long time to open the gas valve or don,t open it at all. The igniter is realatively cheap and easy to change if you're inclined give it a try... turn off the gas turn of the electricity and be carefull, I will warn you however I,ve done lots of these and in a small number of cases it turns out to be the gas valve itself ...don,t do that one unless you are familiar with gas valves and have exactly the right tools Good Luck
