Short answer is the ignitor can cause this. I can also be a failing valve. Easiest way to decide to fix or not is to swap the ignitor from the broiler and if symptom is gone replace it.

I have a 6 yr old Tappan stove, model TGF657BFW5. the burners work fine, but the oven and/or broiler take 5 to 10 minutes to light. when the oven and/or broiler do light, the flame is only about 1/8 to 1/4...


that ignitor should lite the flame within 40 to 60 seconds if not the ignitor is bad.even though it glows red it doesn't mean it's good it works with amps change the ignitor

Gas stove When I turn on the oven, I smell gas,


This is more than likely the igniter to be sure you will need to do an amp draw on the igniter. To do this watch the video on troubleshooting a gas oven at www.appliancehelponline.com/servicemanual.html

Tappan gas range model 72-3981-00/07. Upper oven does not ignite even though the igniter comes on and glows yellow.


The ignitor is weak and must be replaced. When you get the new ignitor turn off the gas supply and the power to replace the ignitor.
Remove the oven racks,remove the oven base pan,remove the flame spreader to access the ignitor.

Whirlpool stove model #st387peyn1 oven won't heat. Broiler does work.Ignitor glows and after a while you hear a poof like it lite, but it did not.


When the igniter is getting weak, it will glow but not get hot enough to fully open the gas valve. If the gas valve opens partially a small amount of gas comes through the burner and you may smell it and eventually it may ignite with a "poof" like you describe. I suspect you just need to replace that igniter.

Oven takes 5 minutes to come on (ignite).


Replaced the igniter. The parts guy told me that the amperage changes with age and use; thus the igniter still glows, but it takes much longer to operate the gas valve with the reduced amperage. Cost - $70.14

Whirlpool Accubake Super Capacity 465 gas range. Oven won't light


Some gas ranges may take 10 or so minutes to light.
Other than that you may have a defective glow bar ignitor.
If it glows and does not light the reistance in the ignitior has failed.
