Oven won't work

The oven worked fine (propane) Now it won't ignite. I don't know what caused this. This is located in a rental property so I don't know anything except what they told me. The top burners work fine but the oven does not. What could cause this? Is there a pilot light, or some kind of safety switch in case they ran out of fuel ? I realize I don't have much info so anything will help. Also what are some good ways to troubleshoot this? Thank you.

    Yes, I too have the same problem. Oven will not lit, but the burners on top of the stove work fine. Is it just replacing the igniter? The broiler works fine. And how big of a job is it to replace the igniter? I have a GE Profle Spectra XL44.

    I have the same problem. The top burners work, all of the displays work, the broiler works - but the oven doesn't heat.

    Is this a simple fix or do I need to call a service person?

The gas valve has gone bad replace valve and igniter at the same time the older igniter will not have a value (ohm) to pull in the new will also have to turn on burner after installing new parts and adjust the flame using the brass fitting on the valve going to the burner assembly.but before you replace any thing make sure you have fuel to the range good luck

Sometimes the pilot light goes out on this type of oven. This could be caused by a draft, or sudden jolt. Even if the top burner is working, the bottom won't go on until the pilot is lit. Check your manufacturers' instructions for locating and re-lighting the pilot.
Best of luck.

I have two magic chef model 6157wuw ranges in my house which operate on propane. The stove burners work perfectly however the ovens produce no heat, no smell of propane and no sign of a pilot or glowing...

It sounds like your propane line is obstructed or your igniter has failed. If your igniter has failed, the propane will not flow until a heat source, from your igniter, has heated a sensor to let the unit know to allow propane to flow. If the propane line is obstructed, it is probably a spider web or eggs from an insect. A pipe cleaner is the best way to remove these obstructions. It would be advisable to have a qualified technician look at your unit.

We have a Frigidaire electronic ignition range about a decade old. The stove works fine. But lately we've noticed if we're using any stove elements the oven won't ignite and heat up. Conve

Sounds like the pressure regulator on the stove is going bad. The pressure regulator is located in the back. Your gas supply line should connect directly to it.

Propane not getting to oven... stove top works fine..

The pilot light must be lit and stay lit before you will have any propane coming into the oven. This is a safety feature.

Pat, it is very important that all appliances that used natural are guaranteed to be LP Gas approved. Fact is natural gas uses about 1/4 oz. psi where Lp Gas uses 8lbs. to 13psi
This is critical that the person doing the work has experience in converting the two types to prevent fire or property damage. I hope I helped answer your question, let me know if this works out for you. Thanks, Sea Breeze

Gas oven will not ignite

I would be suspect of the temperature control valve based on your previous experience. I am assuming the safety valve you are speaking of was really a regulator.

XL44 Gas Range will not light

Kinda sounds like the hot surface igniter is out. It is located under the oven section under the bottom panel. They are relatively easy to replace except you need that oven today I'm sure. Let me know how it turned out.

To replace the hot surface you need to take the bottom panel off and access the assy you need a 1/4 nut runner and remove couple small screws unplug the igniter take it to a parts house and 12 to 20 dollars later you're good as gold. When I say parts house appliance parts.

Westinghouse Freestyle 476 Cooktop Oven

After getting an electrician out, apparently the time needs to be set on the oven. As we're in a rental & don't have a manual/ couldn't download one, we got it to work after holding the first two buttons in (the timer buton + the one that looks like a hot pot) along with the + button at the far right, which made the tim tick on, so it could be set.

The oven works now! : )
