If you are liting the oven gas and it stays on for as long as you keep the knob/lever depressed and then goes out when you release the knob/lever, then either you are not depressing the knob/lever for sufficient time to let the sensor heat up or the sensor is no longer in touch with the lited gas, which means it will not heat up, or the sensor/control unit is faulty.

Chances are that you are not letting the sensor heat up. There is a sensor above or near the pilot light that turns off the gas if the flame goes out. This is to prevent the gas from filling your house and we don't want that! Try lighting the pilot light and letting the flame heat the sensor until it gets hot. This should keep the gas flowing. It should take only about 45secs - 1 minute.

Hi

It's usually down to carbon clogging the pilot light. This typically happens where gas is on a meter like we have. Everytime the gas runs out, dust and other particles get sucked along into the nozzle where the pilot light is.

The best solution is to try cleaning it. I'd recommend trying to run the vacuum cleaner nozzle over it if you can (with it turned off of course) and perhaps even try cleaning it with a toothbrush (preferably an old one of course as nothing tastes worse than soot) and if this fails, let me know.

Good luck!

Depending on the age of the oven, it is possible that your ignitor is now weak and it is taking longer to ignite.

My gas oven won't ignite, takes several tries to ignite it.


All gas appliances have a thermal cut out this will shut the gas off if the flame goes out the down side is when the thermal cut out becomes faulty it can shut the gas of when you are using the cooker the only fix is to replace the thermal cut out

The ignition goes on but gas dose not goes on.the oven is GE about 20 year old. the ignition is electric. Not sure model # AT501820J


by ignition goes on I assume that you can see it glowing ..these are just tiny heating elements and when they get to a certain current they open the gas valve and it ignites. These little elements over time start to loose there effectivness and either take a realy long time to open the gas valve or don,t open it at all. The igniter is realatively cheap and easy to change if you're inclined give it a try... turn off the gas turn of the electricity and be carefull, I will warn you however I,ve done lots of these and in a small number of cases it turns out to be the gas valve itself ...don,t do that one unless you are familiar with gas valves and have exactly the right tools Good Luck

Magic chef oven/stove top range not staying hot


Hi, It very well could be the ignitor. Sometimes they work at first and then will not open the gas valve later in cycle. You can set the oven to heat and watch the ignitor. If it glows and the gas will not ignite in 30 to 45 seconds, the igniter is getting weak. I jope this helps.
Please let me know if I can assit you further.

Replaced gas safety valve, burner flame now too hot


Take a 1/2 inch open end wrench and tighten the orifice on top of the safety valve.Probably about 2 turns. Then adjust the air shutter to mostly open.

Spark module clicks and gas will not stay lit, flame comes on but goes out


hi Clogged burners are a very common problem with gas ranges because foods spilled on the burners block the gas ports and prevent ignition. On some gas ranges you can remove the top ring of the burner to expose the ports. Here's how to clean a burner:
Step 1: Turn off the power supply, both gas and electric, to the range. Then remove the burner.
Step 2: Soak the burner in a solution of mild household detergent and water. Clean it with a soft cloth.
Step 3: Clear the gas ports with a pin or needle, rinse the burner, and let it dry. Caution: Do not use a toothpick or matchstick to clean the gas ports. If the tip of the wood gets stuck in the burner ports, it could cause a serious blockage.
Step 4: When the burner is completely dry, replace it, and turn on the power and the gas supply.
thank u.................

New gas valve, new gas smell


CG, unfortunately you replaced the wrong part. The problem with your oven is the igniter. The igniter is wired in series with a safety valve. The safety valve monitors the amount of electrical current flowing through the igniter when you ask it to "bake".  When the igniter gets "weak" it won't allow current to flow through it properly, this will keep the oven from heating. It will also cause your symptoms as well...

Here's the scenario; Say your safety valve is "looking" for 2.5 amps of electricity flowing through it before it'll open up and allow gas to the manifold. Your igniter is designed to allow 2.8-3.2 amps to flow in good operating condition, but your igniter has become "weak"... it's now allowing 2.48-2.51 amps. The safety valve is sensing this and opening and closing rapidly, allowing gas to flow through it (fluttering). BUT! the igniter is not hot enough to ignite the gas and/or there is not enough gas to ignite do to the fluttering effect of the valve. Sometimes it'll light sometimes it won't.

Your igniter is the cause and needs to be replaced.

Before you begin the repair, you should have the new part on hand. The part number is WB2X9154 and can be purchased at your local appliance parts retailer for about $50.00. Here's one online for $65.00.

First, UNPLUG YOUR OVEN!

To replace it... Remove the racks and lower panel (oven floor). This will expose the burner manifold where the igniter is mounted.  (It's the round thing on the manifold near the back... it has 2 wires going into it.) You'll need a 1/4" socket or nut driver to remove it.

(*TIP---> before removing the screws from the igniter, put a few drops of liquid dish soap on the threads to lubricate them. If you do this, you will not strip the threads of the screws and it will ease their removal.)

The new igniter kit will have two ceramic wire nuts in it. Cut the two wires off of the old igniter and strip them back about 3/8". Then connect the wires of your new one to the wires in the oven using the ceramic wire nuts provided. Then mount the new igniter and rebuild the oven.

(*TIP---> The new igniter is very fragile! [that's why it came wrapped tightly in bubble wrap] Handle it gently!)

There ya go! Total job time? ~45 minutes.

Kemore Gas oven - trouble igniting


Hi Deeg, there was a service flash regarding this problem. The bake burner and bake igniter have been modified to assure consistent oven ignition and performance. The number of ports on the burner have increased located at the electrode tip. The electrode shield has also been modified. This repair should be covered under warranty. The kit part number is 8190618 for your information. If your serial number ranges from RK01 through RR11, this is your problem. I would call Sears and request service. Catriver.
