This typically indicates the Hot surface ignitor (glow plug) is weak, and needs to be replaced. Even though it glows, it simply doesn't generate the amperage required to open the gas valve. These two compnents work in series, when the igintor becomes to corroded it cannot draw enough current to sufficiently power the magnetic coil in the gas valve. replace the ignitor and let me know when the turkey is ready ! :)

the glow plug may be working as in its glowing,but even so they can seem to be working,but if they are weak they can appear o.k. but wont pass enough current to completely open the gas valve and keep it fully open,thats why it sometimes wont light or if they do the flame is wavering or small and you smell gas,just replace the glow plug

Oven range will not light. glow plug seems to be working


You need a new glo-plug. They still glow when they go bad but not enough to ignite the burner. It's a fairly easy DIY project.

Glow plug gets red but oven will not ignite. Broiler ignites but has seperate glow plug.


Check to see if you are getting gas to the oven burner. If it will light with a match then look into adjustment of the flow plug, but if it won't light, then look at the gas valve or switch.

When you turn the temp knob the light will come on the panel but the oven will not light. Stove works fine. We have had this unit for 12 years. Thanks Bob.....


can you hear gas coming in when you turn the know to "ligth" if not the you may have either a bad gas valve or the safety feature has detected something wrong, and has shut the gas off to the oven. first determine if you do indeed have gas., how does the oven light, is it pilot lit, or does it have a glow plug, if its pilot lit, make sure the pilot is running. if its a glow plug, you should be able to see it glow when you turn the oven on, if its not glowing it has to be replaced (or maybe the wiring has gone bad). either way that's where to start.

The Glow Plug is glowing, but oven will not light up.


Hi,

This may sound strange but it is most often the glow plug that is bad. What happens is as the ignitor (glow plug) ages the resistance internally rises, this rise gets to a point where it limits the electrical current just enough that the valve no longer opens.

Oven takes up to 15 minutes to light. glow plug does appear to be bright orange immediately after turning oven on. it is a propane unit.


Hi, glow plug (element) should glow red, maybe you got faulty thermocouple, located ot bottom of oven burner, unit where gas enter oven burner, they could either be gas pilot or electrical element as metering device, give a little tap, could be stuck, could also be your thermostat, check oven thermostat, many ways to check oven thermostat, give thermocouple a little tap located at beginning of oven burner, if it didn't work, call a mechnic to make futher checks. good luck.

Frididaire gas oven won't light


Does the cooktop burners work? if they do then the problem is either the safety valve or the glow plug (even though it glows). Try tapping the safety valve. If the oven lights up change the glow plug.Otherwise change the safety valve
