You may have to replace the thermocouple/glowbar found in the oven.
Most newer gas stoves have a glow bar ignition source.
Once the glow bar reaches the correct temperature the gas burner is then feed gas and ignites. The thermocouple probe is preset to turn on the gas flow once the correct temperature is reached from the glowbar.

Use extreme caution with gas appliances.
If you are not comfortable doing this yourself.
Have a licensed repairman do this work.

You can check the glowbar and thermocouple to make sure no foreign substance is blocking their ability to function.
Some gas ranges have two of these: one in the oven and one in the broiler.

Some only have one in the broiler back of the stove.
Both styles will be set a few mm away from the gas burner.

PS. if the glowbar is functional but does not have the correct resistance.
The oven will not come on. This is a safety issue.

Hope this helps!

Sounds like you have a bad gas ignitor. It is under the bottom plate and sits on the burner and is held in with 2 1/4 inch screws.8273075 should be the part number for your ignitor....the model number you gave is incomplete so it's hard to tell but hopefully that will help you out

Why has our oven stopped working whilst cooking - nothing electrical seems to be working?


Did you check your electrical breakers? Maybe it tripped. Reset it by first switching it fully to the off position, then switch it to on.

My oven/stovetop isn't turning on, and it says "LOC" on the screen. Its like the stove won't ignite. What should I do?


To lock/unlock the controls: Turn all surface burners off.

Touch and hold the GAS/CONTROL LOCKOUT pad for 3 seconds until the display shows LOC.

To unlock the control, touch and hold the GAS/CONTROL LOCKOUT pad for 3 seconds until LOC disappears from the display.

Gas oven won't light. Stovetop works fine.


I have the same problem with my whirlpool gas oven. The top burners work fine, but when we turn the oven on, the ON sign on the display stays on for about a few seconds and then goes away. The oven doesn't light up. Please help

Stovetop works but oven does not.


Most likely your problem is the glowplug aka oven igniter. Even though it comes on it must reach a certain temp for the gas to come on. Occaisionally the valve will be bad but 90% of the time it is the igniter. Part number is 74007498

F7 Error code while cleaning stovetop


Usually a stuck keypad. Try pushing all buttons at random several times each including cancel. If that does not correct it this time you will need a new touchpad and ERC.

I have a Frigidaire Gallery gas oven (electronic digital controls). Neither oven nor broiler is lighting. Stovetop burners light fine.


Have to check if there is power at the oven & broiler first.Maybe a bad thermostat located in back of oven wall.

Oven, Broiler inopperable


Sandwich, is it your bake or broil thats not working? You have two ignitors, one for bake and broil. One of them is your culprit. This is not a hard job. The post header says broil not working so the part number for that is WB13K0003. Bake ignitor is WB13K0004. To get at the bake ignitor you have to remove the oven bottom inside panel, remove the flame spreader (both easy). The click you are hearing is the board relay sending power to the ignitor. The ignitor has to draw so many amps to open the gas valve. The oven is pilotless. Catriver..post back.
