Oil burner and hot water storage tank needs replacement

If the leak has completely stopped don't do any more. I don't think rust sealed the leak but more the minerals in your water did. Keep an eye on it, though. When you're in a position to have a warranty fix done, then go for it.

We have a Whirlpool Gas Range, model SF357PEKQ. When I start the bake feature, you can hear the gas flow, the ignitor click (about 4 times) yet there is no ignition of the gas (flame doesn't start)....

Whirlpool had some grounding issues with some of their electronic ignition ranges. Make sure your outlet is grounded first. Then you might need to make sure the bake burner itself is grounded very good against the range frame. I have put star washers between the burner and frame and tightened very tight, that sometimes helps. Also make sure the holes in the burner under the spark electrode are clear from debris. Sometimes the burning of gas leaves a residue that can stop up the holes and not let the gas flow out where the spark is hitting the burner. Hope that helps.

I have a Maytag (Magic Chef) gas oven model CGR3730ADH. The oven will not heat up. The ignitor will glow/heat up but there does not appear to be any gas flow. The top burners work normally. After...

First of all, thank you for all your information. A rule I live by, even if an ignitor glows does not mean it works. The ignitor works on the flow of electricity through it not how bright it glows. If you can use a amperage meter, hook on one of the two wire to the ignitor directly. You need 3.2 to 3.6 amps to open the safety valve. If lower than 2.6 amps, it will not allow gas to enter the burner. If you have no clue what I am asking you to do, you can purchase and replace the ignitor and life will be better. P# 12400035. Its not difficult to change, the screws holding the ignitor in place sometimes strip out, when you get them off, you can replace them if needed.
Good Luck

Most modern ovens today, do NOT have pilots--
They have an ignitor that glows bright , and then the gas valve opens, and the burner lights.

Have you noticed when the Broiler burner lights, if you get a bright light from its ignitor?

You should see the same for the main oven burner, when you start it.

If not-- you need a new ignitor. Do you have any warranty with your oven?-- How old is it?

When you check these out, let us know, and we;ll help you to the next step

My broiler works but oven is not heating. Is this an ignitor problem?

That could be a good analysis---

Here is an observation you can make thru the oven door:

When you turn the oven on to BROIL-- do you see the bright glow of the ignitor?
(It is almost like a light bulb was in there-- buy the burner!)

When you start the oven (on BAKE) setting-- do you see a similar bright glowing light?
(Tho down lower, near the Lower Over Burner)
If you see the bright light-- then the ignitor is apparently heating up--
If not-- then, YES-- you are likely right--
Ignitors are fairly common failure items-- and they can obviously stop the burner from lighting-

Make sense?

Let us know if we can help further.

Hi, this evening while heatng up the over, it got really bright in one corner(like a light might of been turned on brightness), then it fort of fizzled out in the over, now it wont heat up past about 125...

Yes you are correct you will need to replace the bake element. Pretty easy job, couple of screws and element should pull straight out to allow you to remove push on wire connectors. JUST MAKE SURE you un-plug it first!!
Part number you will need is 77001094 and should not cost you more than $40.
Good luck!!

Have igniter, but no flame.

Ok first thing you need to verify is that the gas valve is on at the connector and there is gas pressure. Then verify that there is no restriction on the flexible gas line(kinked) or any PTFE tape or pipe dope stuck in the connection restricting gas flow. Then make sure that the appliance gas regulator is installed in the right direction and not installed backwards(if it is backwards you will get no gas). Also you might find a valve located on the regulator called a runaway valve(looks like a small clip) is off. Verify that the run-away valve is on. This valve will **** off gas to the oven burner. Then verify that there is no tape or debris covering the burner orfice or assembly. And when the burner igniter is glowing brightly try giving the gas control valve a tap(it might be sticikng). If it lights after you tap it re-try the oven several times to make sure it is working.

Viking gas stove operators manual....I was working on my stove was not lighting up....the stove......and I noticed that there was 2 burners...and when I replaced one of the ignighters and tryed the...

The way it works is the igniter gets voltage signal from the control and will start to glow. The gas valve for the burner and the igniter are wired on the same circuit. When the igniter starts to glow it takes all the voltage from the circuit. As the igniter increases in temp the resistence changes and the voltage starts to travel to the gas valve. Once the gas valve registers 3 to 4 volts it will open allowing gas to the burner for ignition. The igniter needs to reach approx 2200 degrees for this to happen. So it could be the igniter or the gas valve. The igniter should test approx 500 to 700 ohms with a ohm meter. The gas valve could also be sticking. If the igniter is glowing bright and you tap the gas valve with a wrench and it comes on then the gas valve is sticking and needs replacement(as long as the igniter tests good)...Hope that helps.
