SOURCE: Oven will not ignite while glow ignitor is on...

The ignitor has to draw enough current to open the gas valve. The cheapest way is to just replace the ignitor and that will fix it 9 out of 10 times.

SOURCE: gas valve or ignitor

the problem 99% of the time is the ignitor. even though its glowing its not pulling enough amps to open the bi-metal in the gas valve. id replace both ignitors if yours has two

Heater will not ignite


  1. Do you have a standing pilot style heater = Milivolt
  2. or is it an IID = Spark style ignitor
  3. Or... Hot surface Ignitor = glows red hot like an auto cigarette lighter?

Most common problem I have come across over the last few weeks, is pressure switch not closing, meaning - dirty filter. Try cleaning your filter: backwash or rinse cartridges.

  1. is pilot staying on, and burning well?
    1. If so, is htr's gas valve in ON position?
  2. Do you hear sparking?
    1. If No, then one of the safety switches is keeping heater from firing...
      1. Toggle switch - on/off
      2. Thermostat - turned up high?
      3. Pressure switch - closes circuit when pump comes on
      4. 2 each high limits
      5. Fusible link / roll out switch
    2. If yes, either gas valve is off, is bad or the Ignition module is bad? Some call it grey box.
      1. You will need to test for voltage at the common and MV posts of the gas valve - 24 to 28 volts. If voltage = bad gas valve; if no voltage = bad IID Module (Intermittent Ignition Device)
  3. Do you see a bright red glow in the burner tray area?
    1. If yes, either fuel supply is off, or Ignitor has worn out and the glow is not hot enough to ignite raw fuel.
    2. If no, check voltage at Ignitor - depends on make and model of heater- could be as low as 24 volts and as much as 110 volts. So... No voltage at the supply wires = bad sending component, again depend on brand and model, could be ignition module, could be circuit board?
    3. If yes voltage, bad Ignitor
      1. Again, this is if fuel supply is confirmed.
Good Luck

Heater blower goes on an smells like gas and doesn't light


The ignitor is not working. I don't know what kind of ignition your heater has but it is either a thermal ignitor or a spark ignitor. In either case the problem could be in the ignitor or the board that supplies the power to the ignotor.

First of all, be careful while looking into the system when the gas comes on because it could unexpectedly ignite and burn you.

If your unit contains an ignitor it should glow brightly when the gas starts. If it is glowing then it is probably not glowing brightly enough or not in the right place and therefore needs to be either replaced or repositioned. If it is not glowing then you should measure the voltage using a volt/ohm meter going to the ignitor. If it reads about 115 then the ignitor is broken and needs to be replaced. If it reads much lower voltage then the board that supplies power to it probably has a problem on it. It may be a defective relay, bad solder joint or some other problem. I would first re-solder the relay connections to the board and see if that fixes it. Otherwise the board will need to be replaced.

If the unit has a spark ignitor and you hear a spark sound it may be too low power or the spark probe might be in the wrong place and therefore not delivering the spark to the fuel air mixture. If you don't hear the spark then you may have a bad relay or bad solder joint to it.

Please let me know how this works out. Thank you.

My gas oven (Frigidaire Gallery) is not preheating or coming up to temperature. The broiler and stove top burners work fine.


Most probable cause is a weak bake burner ignitor,if you can remove the floor of the oven and see a orange glow but within one minute thier is no flame the ignitor that glows is weak and needs to be replaced,if no glow at all ,if your capable find the 2 wires to the bake ignitor,using a volt meter set to AC volts there should be 120vac to the ignitor. If their is 120 vac and absolutly no glow the ignitor is cracked and needs to be replaced,if their is not 120 vac it could be the gas safety valve or control

My computer went blank when turning it on


1) Computer isn't working, due to the Processor isn't working, due to a bad Power Supply.
Weak voltage power rail.

Enough power perhaps to light LED lights, and maybe spin fans, but not enough power to turn the Processor on.

Computer Power Supply's are rated in Wattage.
Volts times Amperes = Watts.
(Average computer power supply in a fairly new computer, is rated at around 300 Watts)

A) ALL of the LED lights combined, use less than 1 Watt of power.
B) EACH fan uses 2 to 3 Watts.
C) A typical Processor may use 51 to 125 Watts.
Depends on what Processor it is.

Power Supply with a weak voltage power rail, can have enough power to light LED lights, spin fans, but not enough to turn the Processor on.

Solution?
Test the voltages of the Power Supply,

Or, use a KNOWN to be good Power Supply, that has the correct amount of power cables, the right kind of power cables, the correct size, and shape of the case, and enough Wattage, for a test unit..

A bad Power Supply is one of the leading causes of computer failure.

I have a frigidaire gallery series, electrolux oven, we used self cleaning mode, worked great. Problem is the oven doesn't work know, broiler works, just the oven wont turn on.


often the bake ignitor will burn out during or right after a self clean cycle.You can confirm this by either measuring voltage at ignitor while oven is on.Alternate method remove ignitor ,check continuity, If the ignitor is coming on but no gas,replace ignitor it is weak.Hope this helps ,please take the time to rate my response :)

Hi, my range oven does not work a times then a day or to or 3 later it works again every thing else works when this happens can you help


I'd replace the oven ignitor. They get weak after a while, and performance can be spotty with older ignitors, based on day to day (or even hour to hour) supply voltage to your range. 125 volts one time, 118 volts another, will make a big difference with a marginal ignitor.

Gas dryer doesn't heat up


,when you start your gas dryer you should here two clicks, if so then your ignitor should begin to glow if two clicks and no glow [its your ignitor] but you can use a volt meter and make sure 110 volts at ignitor if voltage replace ignitor with new.if not two clicks then its going to be your thermal fuse its in the same area as the burner Therese two kinds[only one in each dryer tho],both white having two wires and small, one looks like a missile the other a fling saucer.ither kind you can put the two wires going to it to gether ,isolate them with tape and try heating.if heats replace.now if fuse you need to check for any blockage,inyou house or dryer.over heating can cause the fuse to open if i can be of more help you can email thru fixya God bless ,tom

Hello, I have a Frigidaire Range stove Model #FGF378WCCD. The oven ignitor heats but the oven doesn't light up and we smell no gas. What can it be?


if the ignitor may glow but if it isn't turning almost white it is not getting hot enough to open valve ,,,,, make sure it glows very bright and if not replace it / larry

New igniter, still won't work


Turn on oven. Ignitor should begin to glow. (if no glow after 30 seconds or so, check to make sure you have 120 volts to ignitor) Observe amperage draw using a clamp on amp meter. When amperage reaches 3.2 to 3.6 (for square syle ignitors) the oven safety valve should open, releasing gas and lighting the burner when the gas hits the red hot ignitor. For broiler, just substitute the word broiler for oven. Old ignitors get " weak " and may not draw enough amperage to allow safety valve to open. Also, voltage will affect the amperage draw, as lower voltage = lower amp draw.
