If the burner assembly lights, then the problem is usually not with the igniter or regulator. More than likely the gas valve safety coils need to be replaced. There are two of them on the burner assembly. You need to replace BOTH of them at the same time.

If the model number is correct, you can view and illustration of your burner assembly here:

http://pcappliancerepair.com/model-display.php

The coils are listed as items 729 and 731. Part numbers WE4X692 and WE4X693, respectively.

If you have any questions, or if your model number differs from the one you listed this question under, please post back and let me know. I hope you find this information helpful.

Have a comfort glow heater blue flame after it is on for 30 sec or more the flame and ignition goes out i can restart it and it will stay lite another 30 sec or so what can i do


Easy remedy. You pilot safety is dusty. You need to flush it out or blow it out. I use rust buster. It has a long spout on it. I squirt a little bit into the pilot to flush out dust and cobwebs then I blow it out and allow the rust buster to dry. I then relight it.

The glow plug just lights up but no flame on my maytag mdg 5500aww


If the ignitor is glowing but the gas does not light check the flame sensor. If it is OK then the gas valve coils may have to be replaced.

Re: golf yellow glow light


the idea or concept of the glow plug is to heat the fuel long enough to start the motor.... it should stay on long enough for the glow plugs to heat up enough to start the motor then they go off because they have done their job. so the light going out is normal after a few seconds

Frididaire gas oven won't light


Does the cooktop burners work? if they do then the problem is either the safety valve or the glow plug (even though it glows). Try tapping the safety valve. If the oven lights up change the glow plug.Otherwise change the safety valve
