Gas stove. Oven won't light/heat. Broiler does still work. Stove is between 7-8 years old.


Hi,

Welcome to FixYa.

Based on your description, "Oven won't light/heat. Broiler does still work" the hot surface ignitor for the bake burner is likely the problem.

Here's what you can try to varify if it's indeed the ignitor...if you're mechanically inclined.

**Turn off the breaker or unplug the range and turn off the gas to the appliance before attempting any service...safety first**

if the boiler has the same ignitor ( some do some don't ) one could swape the ignitor`s ( very carefully, they are very fragile and don`t like to be handled ) this will allow you to use the bake burner, but it will leave you without the broil function...until you have a diagnosis and can purchase another.

This will confirm or dismiss if the ignitor is at fault...99% of the time this is the case.

You should be able to find one at most brick & mortar appliance parts vendors or on-line depot's such as "repairclinic.com", "searspartsdirect.com" to name a couple.

You can ask for part number 12400035, That is the most common ignitor and is for Maytag, but built by "Norton" for gas oven`s.

I would still double check with your model number with the part`s professional`s.

Hope that help`s. Let me know if I can assist you further and good luck.

Thank`s for visiting "fixya" for your repair needs.

Oven won't ignite


most likely you have a bad ignitor.take out the racks and remove the floor,you'll see the ignitor,turn on the bake,the ignitor should glow and the flame should lite within 40 seconds,if it doesn't change out the ignitor,even if it glows that doesn't mean the ignitor is still good change it out.let me know what you find and next time send model number

Kenmore gas oven; range&broiler work, not bake cycle-bad ignitor?


Well there are other parts that control the igniter,but if you can remove the igniter and look for any cracks.Most are hard to find so you may need a magnifying glass.Any crack no matter how small will keep it from glowing.The gas will not flow until the photo senser has detected the igniter glowing for several seconds.You can get a parts breakdown at SearsPartsDirect.com.Well hope this helps.

GE Gas built in oven Model JRS14 will not heat up


The bake ignitor has failed.Turn off the gas supply. Remove the racks. Then remove the bottom pan cover in the oven to access the ignitor. Place a amp meter on one wire of the ignitor.Turn the BAKE switch on. If it reads less than 3 amps,replace the ignitor.

GE Profile Stove baking option not working


Possibly the bake igniter, the temperature sensor or the electronic oven clock/control. Does broil mode heat properly or does it run cool also? If broil heats to the proper temperature then the temperature sensor is probably ok. That leaves the ignitor or the controller which takes some more troubleshooting. If it is the controller, we repair them at www.fixyourboard.com.

Kenmore oven wont work


Hi, The most common issue when the oven doesn't work is the ignitor. You can open the door and remove the floor panel inside the oven. Start the bake and see if the ignotor glows. It probibly will but, that doesn't mean it is ok. It just means the ignitor is getting voltage. When the ignitor is glowing, you can try (BE CAREFULL not to be to close to the buner) and tap on the side of the gas valve with the handle of a screwdriver. If the gas ignites, you will need to change that ignitor.
Again, this is very common.
Please let me know if this helps you or if I can assist you further.

KENMORE GAS STOVE OVEN LOWER BURNER WON'T WORK


Most likely a hot-surface ignitor has failed. If it doesn't consume enough current, the gas valve won't open. It's usually a fairly easy fix, once you gain access to the ignitor and have a new one to replace it with. Make sure you unplug the range...

My stove works and so does my broiler. I replaced


If you use a multimeter, you can test the gas valve where the white and yellow wires connect is where your terminals for bake on that valve are. If you have continuity there, then check to make sure that igniter is wired ok.
