I disagree with fix it right. Im from the old school days and was poor. if you pull real hard the element will pull out of the socket and it rest on its supports. plug it into the other sockets remember to cut power all ways first. i have a oven so its a visual thing with me. Im a ham lover so enjoy.

Bottom oven does not start


I HAD THIS SAME PROBLEM THIS WEEK. MY REPAIRMAN TOLD ME THE GLOW BAR IGNITOR ARE BAD TO GO BAD. EVEN IF IT STILL GLOWS IT PROBABLY ISN'T PUTTING OUT ENOUGH GLOW TO OPEN UP THE SAFETY GAS VALVE. I THOUGHT MY PILOT LIGHT MIGHT BE OUT, BUT THEY DON'T EVEN HAVE ONE FOR THE OVEN/BROILER IN THE BOTTOM OF STOVE, BUT IT DID HAVE ONE FOR THE TOP BURNERS.
YOU CAN WATCH SOME YOU TUBE VIDEOS OF HOW TO FIX THE GLOW BAR IGNITOR FOR THE OVEN AND LEARN MORE--HOPE THIS HELPS..

The broiler works but the bake option doesn't work, the oven doesn't get hot, any suggestions?


Check the bake ignitor (glow bar attached to the burner). If it does not glow at all, but the voltage is supplied to it - replace. If it does glow, but draws current less than 3A - replace.

Gas Oven - no flame at Bake Baffle - Glow Bar glows fine


If the glow bar is working (glowing) it is the gas valve. BUT, the glow bar can also actually glow and still not be working 100% and letting enough current through to the valve. You could swap an identical valve out to check it, if you don't have a meter. It's more than likely the valve though.

This will be why the oven acts up. The broiler doesn't rely as much on this as the bake part does. Replace this and it should fix your problem.

Hotpoint oven glowbar not working


My oven glowbar stopped working christmas morning. Yesterday we bought a whirlpool brand (igntr-oven #4342528) because it is twenty something dollars cheaper then GE. My husband installed it today. The only difference is you have to splice the wires (it comes with everthing you need) The first time he put it in it did not work because he had the wires backwards. He switched the wires and now its working fine.
My oven is two years old also.

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.
