You may hear the igniter click, but do you see the spark? If not, then you may need to clean the sparker and where it arcs to the burner.

I have a GE Spectra XL44 gas stove,but I'm having problems with the oven heating up.Sometimes after several attempts I get the oven operating, but most time stops at around 100 degrees. All of the top...


Hi,
Yes, I think that you have a problem with the ignitor on your gas range.
As crazy as it may seem the ignitor can light your oven and then the power going through it drops off too much and it will shut your gas valve off. It sits there and goes crazy trying to relight all the time and never gets your oven hot. Sometimes it will and sometimes it won't... Drove me nuts the first time my own oven did that a few years back.

Here is a tip that will help explain it also. At the bottom of that tip there is also a tip on how to buy partson line.

Tip

Oven not Working or Oven not Heating


If your gas oven is not working or not heating then you need to check this out. Today’s gas ovens are not often do not use the simple thermocouple with a pilot to prove the flame anymore. They have a much more complicated method of lighting the burner and proving the flame.

The use of electric igniters has become the standard for many ovens today. The thermostat calls for heat, power is supplied to the igniter, then after a certain amperage draw on the igniter, the gas valve is energizes to open and allow gas to flow starting the flame. As long as the amperage draw on the igniter is high enough then the gas valve stays open till the thermostat is satisfied.

Sometimes the igniter will crack and no current will go through and the igniter will not even heat up or glow. Sometimes the igniter will wear to the point where it will still heat up and glow, but the current draw will not be high enough to allow the gas valve to open. This creates a confusing situation where you look into the oven and see the glow from the igniter, but get no heat because the burner never lights up. If this is the case then you will need to replace the igniter even though it seems to be okay. The only way to know for sure is to know what the current draw requirements are for that gas valve and to have an amp meter to check the current draw.

Most of the time the problem will be in the igniter, and not the gas valve. Gas valves can go bad, but that is the case in only a very small amount of the situations. It is a pretty safe bet that if you have a problem with you gas oven lighting that you have a problem with your igniter.

My kenmore gas oven won't heat. I turn to dial to temp i want can smell gas building up in oven and can see a glow in bottom of oven but will not ignite. Sometimes if I turn on a cooking eye I can then...


When the bake igniter becomes weak or burns out, your oven would not bake. The bake igniter is usually mounted on the oven burner. It's about 1 inch by 4-8 inches (depending on the model), and comes in round or flat styles. If you don't see the igniter glow at all, it's probably burned out. Replace the igniter if found defective. Note: one of the exceptions could be that your oven is set to automatic mode instead of manual. If this is the case, set your oven to manual mode and check again.

If the bake igniter glows red and not bright yellow or white, it is probably because it is too weak. When this happens, the safety valve would not let the gas out into the oven burner. A weak igniter must be replaced.

A faulty igniter is probably the most common cause, however there are others:

-- defective thermostat
-- defective selector switch
-- defective gas safety valve
-- defective gas valve coils

This will be why the oven acts up. The broiler doesn't rely as much on this as the bake part does. Replace this and it should fix your problem.

Oven works intermittently


Replace the igniter. Igniters seem to get a bit weaker as they age. They have to draw a minimum amperage (say for example 3.2 amps) before the gas safety valve will release gas. The old igniter is probably drawing very close to the minimum. Low voltages (say 110 volts) would make this worse than if you had higher voltages (say 120).

Tappan gas kitchen oven will not heat


Almost always a weak oven igniter. Remove oven floor by removing 2 screws at rear of floor. Remove flame spreader from burner, if it has one. Turn on oven and see if igniter gets red. It's the caged thing on burner tube. If it does but doesn't light gas, replace igniter. UNPLUG UNIT FIRST!!
Put dishwashing soap on threads of 2 screws holding igniter in place. This will allow it to come out easier. Do-not use oil. It will make your oven smell like a diesel truck.
Remove screws. You will have to remove drawer in front. Underneath you can fin wires from igniter. These will be cut at igniter and connected to igniter with enclosed wire nuts. The 2 wires to igniter go either way.

WHY WON'T MY OVEN HEAT UP?


Most modern gas ovens and many broilers use a "glow-bar" style of igniter that glows red-hot to ignite the gas. If the igniter doesn't reach the proper temperature, the gas valve won't open. You may need to replace the igniter.

Oven not always working


MOre than likely your igniter is getting weak. If it doesnt pull enough amperage. it shouldnt let gas into the oven. If it is letting in gas and not igniting, I would suggest a new igniter and a new safety valve. Hope this helps!
