My oven will not heat up

The ignitor glows and the gas is flowing but it will not heat up. bought stove from family friend who has since died and the model number I found inside the hood is 282240A, but i think that is incorrect, for some reason I feel it is probably longer than that. Can u help?

    hi,



    it is possible that the stove may be set up to run on propane, do the top burners have a good flame height?

    hi, does the oven burner light? and if so, you you have propane (bottle) or natural gas (city)?

This is almost always caused by a intermittent or bad oven ignitor, because it takes a min. of 3.0 amp draw to pull the gas safety vavle open to release the gas in the oven the burners on top you control by turning the gas valve manually. so you can have a cooktop that works perfectly but a oven which does not due to the different safety feathers

pull out the racks and remove the bottom floor of the oven,turn it on bake,if the ignitor doesn't glow most likely it's bad,if it does glow and it doesn't ignite within 40 to 60 seconds the ignitor is bad.even though it glows doesn't mean it's good,it works by amps.it takes 3.2 amps.for a flat ignitor to open the gas valve and 2.5 amps for a round ignitor to open the gas valve.

Magic chef self ignitor top,, how do u get the oven to work.. is it self ignite too. i turn on oven ger a glow in the oven,, dont know the model ,,older stove. good shape. bought house with gas stove...


If the glow bar is glowing and the oven doesn't come on in about 30 - 45 seconds.... it probably is the glow bar that needs to be replaced. BUT it could be the oven valve. Usually it is the glow bar.
The glow bar is wired in series with the oven valve and even if it is glowing it may not be sending the correct voltage through to the oven valve. To change the glowbar... unplug the appliance, unscrew 2 screws holding the metal bracket to the burner and remove the ignitor. You can cut the 2 white wires going to the ignitor and use ceramic wire nuts with the new ignitor.

Oven does not heat. Glow bar ignitor glows but no flame.


usually this means that your ignitor is weak and needs to be replaced. When the ignitor glows and NO gas flows through you need a new ignitor.

Whirlpool gas oven sf315pemb1- oven not heating


Hi, It sounds like the ignitor has gone bad. Remove the floor panel in the oven and locate the ignitor fastened to the burner. There should be 120V going to the ignitor harness.
If you have voltage but no ignition, change the ignitor.
I hope this helps you. Please let me know if I can assist you further.

I would start by replacing the ignitor. It could glow enough to light the oven, but to maintain the burner, it often re-ignites several times during a cooking cycle. I have had the problem before, replaced the ignitor and all was well. You should be able to find an ignitor for under $40 online. Just google 'Maytag oven ignitor' and you should find many offers. My sister just bought one for $19.99!
