First off, decide which you have, a pilot lite or an igniter coil. In electronic controlled units, when the oven won't light, as long as there's gas available, 98% of the time the igniter is bad, even though the old one may glow and seem to be very bright, it could have a small hairline crack in the ceramic, which would not allow the proper amount of electrical current to travel to the gas oven safety valve, which would then make it open and release the gas. A new igniter works almost every time.
Your problem is with the oven ignitor.
Remove the racks from the oven, remove bottom shelf. Remove the metal plate covering flame spreader. The igniter should now be visible. Turn oven on and watch the glow from the igniter. It will come on but it wouldnt get too bright, so it wouldnt open the gas valve. After changing the ignitor, oven should light.
I am working with model JGBP26WEH1WW GE Gas range: You do not need to remove the back or even turn over, just remove the storage pan at the base of the unit and disconect the two plugs (unique plugs). You will need to splice your old conectors to your new igniter. Yes you have the correct igniter for that model.
First clean the terminals at the control and check for tight wires at the incoming terminal block. Check the neutral wire for a good conection. If the ignitor reads less than 3 amps it does not have enough resistance to open the gas valve. Turn the gas off. Put a clamp on amp meter on the broil ignitor wire. Turn the broiler on. If less than 3 amps.replace the ignitor.
Hi, it sounds like the oven ignitor might be bad. Remove the floor panel inside the oven and you will see the ignitor attached to the burner assembly. Turn the oven on and see if it glows. You can test the connection for the ignitor and see if it gets 120V to it. The most common problem with the gas oven is the ignitor. Most of the time, the ignitor glows but is not strong enough to open the gas valve.
Please let me know if this was helpfull or if I can assist you further.
Hi, There is a glow igniter that has to glow and open the gas valve to ignite the flame. Are you seeing any glow below the floor of the oven? Remove the floor on=f the oven and you will see the igniter. If you have a voltage meter, You can remove the ignitor from the manifold ans test it. Put your meter leads into the connection and turn the oven on, (ONLY long enough to see if you have 120V. If there is voltage, replace the igniter. They can still glow but be bad. The igniter gets weak and will not open the gas valve. Please let me know if I can assist you further.
Hi, Be careful many ranges break the neutral... the ignitor always has power...I got almost electrocuted finding that out... The ignitor is not working right and is going bad.... have the repair man replace the ignitor, or DIY.... Check out this tip about your problem...
Eliminate the gas valve first--Use a meter and connect the 2 wires off the valve to it.turn the oven on and you should either read 120v or 24v depending on the unit.If you have the voltage but no ignition the valve may be bad.However if you dont have the voltage i would suspect the heat board or thermostat as an issue.I would also check the pilot/burner for a clog from soot,even more so if the units propane.Let me know
I have a magic chef gas range and the top of the stove burners work , the broiler works but not the oven..I think it is the glo bar. How the heck do I change this? It is a magic chef proven cooking performance from model # 8114p627-60 from about 1999
