Question about Ovens

1 Answer

My oven does not ignite, no gas is coming out. Gas range works.

My whirlpool gas oven doesn't light! I am able to use the range top but it seems like there is no gas coming out of the oven. No fumes and I tried to light it with a lighter thinking it may be a starter problem but no gas. I was using it fine until June 09...and we haven't used it during the warmer months. I am panicking because its baking season soon and the worst part is.....I LIVE IN JAPAN. I work for the US Military in Japan and that is why I have an American oven, I called the Japanese Propane company to see if it was a faulty gas line or pipe, but they reassured me that the oven needs to be fixed. I don't know who to call to get it fixed...but if I can get an idea of which parts to order from Whirlpool I might be able to get someone on the base to fix it...any ideas?

You probably have a bad bake ignitor, The ignitor is a common part to go bad over time. If it isn't working, or isn't getting hot enough, the valve will not open to let gas in. That is why you can't light it with a match. The bake ignitor isn't very expensive, and is not to difficult to replace. Be sure to get the "bake ignitor", and not the "broil ignitor". If you need help getting the part # for it, or help with replacment procedures, let me know, be happy to help. shane Also, if this helps you fix your problem, please rate this solution. thanks, shane

Stove top ignitors do not ignite but oven does.


Electric gas igniters sometimes get stuck in one position causing a clicking sound. The clicking sound that you hear is the electric arc that is pulsing from the igniter conductor (wire) to ground (the gas burner). It receives power from the electrical outlet that the stove is plugged into.
Residue from food and sometimes cleaning products may be preventing the igniter from producing a spark (Arc) to the base of the burner. This is a common problem that occurs when the stove has been cleaned or food is allowed to build up. Make sure that the igniter and the burner base are clean and dry. This will help with proper operation. Oven cleaner and a small tooth brush may be used to accomplish this. Another problem with ignition may occur if you have too little (touching) or too much space between the igniter and the base of the burner; it will prevent the burner from igniting. You should only have a little more space than the thickness of a nickel between the burner base and the igniter. A good “blue” arc from the igniter to the burner base is optimal. If this doesn’t work, you may need to replace the electric igniter module. Good luck.

Whirlpool Accubake Super Capacity 465 gas range. Oven won't light


Some gas ranges may take 10 or so minutes to light.
Other than that you may have a defective glow bar ignitor.
If it glows and does not light the reistance in the ignitior has failed.

Broiler works, as do burners. The oven will not come on. Gas whirlpool range 2003 year. Model SF367LEKB


jdelvecchio5Does the igniter (glow bar) come on whenever the bake function is selected.?

If the glow bar does not come on the safety valve will not open - no bake burner. check the electrical harness first then Try changing the igniter (glow bar first) before changing the safety valve/regulator.

Roper gas range and oven with electric igniter


First look to see if the ignitor is coming on. Most common problem is the ignitor is weak or just bad. When the power is applied to the ignitor it glows and builds up resistance to open the gas valve then it lights. If the ignitor is weak or bad it will not build up enough resistance for gas to come into the burner. One sign of this would be a "woosh" sound when it trys to light. If the ignitor is coming on but not lighting it is most likely the ignitor is bad. Should have a full glow. Also, if the ignitor looks whiteish in color this is a sign of it going bad. You can compare to the broil ignitor to be sure. If the ignitor doesn't come on at all will need to see if you have power to the ignitor. Let me know what you find and let's solve it before you rate the solution.

Check the voltage at the oven gas valve, if you are getting 120v, then you have a bad gas valve.
