Its the glow coil getting you to 100 but it isn't getting hot enough to iginite gas so it needs replacement, cost of doing so maybe 50 bucks if you do it yourself

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

most likely the igniter is not working at 100% and the gas valve won't open unless it is at 100%. Replace the igniter first.

My oven temperature is 100 degrees hotter than it should be


It will be the sensor inside the oven compartment that is causing the problem.
A new sensor should cure the prob, certainley cheaoer than buying a new oven.
Hope my advice helps you.

Oven won't heat up 100 degrees continues to show on console


Hi,

Is this a 120VAC. gas range or 240VAC. electric ?

It sounds to me as though it is gas and the bake ignitor is faulty.

If it is 240V AC. You've likely got a control issue or source voltage problem.

Try swapping out the ignitor, that should allow the oven to ignite. The reason it is only showing 100 in the display is the ignitor is the only source of heat. If it is left like this long enough it will also destroy the bake burner assembly as it is likely a hot surface style. so try and fix it asap.

hope that helps,


Good luck
