Question about Hotpoint RGB745 Gas Kitchen Range

1 Answer

I have a whirlpool w10162213a gas range. When I turn on the oven I can hear it click like normal to go into preheat mode. Problem is I can smell the gas, hear the click but all of a sudden no flame. When the oven clicked I lit it with a lighter so i know it works.I had a fan drying my kitchen floor directed towards the oven....could that have something to do with it? The oven is only 3 years old. Might it be the ignitor already.The broiler works. When I turn on the oven the broiler ignitor sparks but the oven ignitor doesn't.

I think another tech on this site has previously answered this question, so I will refer you to his answer. Looks like it could be the ceramic igniter, but it could also be a dirty connection on the gas solenoid, as another person said.

I don't think it's your control board, at least that's the good news.

    Thanks for the advice. I decided to check the ceramic ignitor. Took it apart checked it and then tried it and it worked. May be this was my oven's way of telling me that I didn't need ribs last night.

Gas smell coming from oven during preheat. once oven is warmed up, smell goes away. I have a Frigidaire FGF366EBC S/N VF6289284.What would cause this?


Typically, all gas operated appliances will get a "gas smell" from time to time. What you're really smelling is the odorant (rotten egg smell) that is added into both propane and natural gas, as these gases have no smell by themselves.

The smell will vary from normal to very strong as the "receipe" for how much ordorant is added into either your propane tanks or the gas supplied to your home. Typically, when tanks start getting low, the smell is more concentrated, while with piped natural gas, the smell can be very strong at different times, based on how and when the gas company adds odorant into the main supply lines.

Usually when a gas appliance is first turned on, the smell can be rather strong, until the gas ignites. So long as your oven is lighting properly, there is nothing to worry about.

However, if you're hearing a rather loud "whoosh" sound as the oven lights, it could be that your ignitor is getting weak and might need to be replaced. If you've got a weak ignitor, it could be allowing a little bit too much gas to build up in the oven compartment before it lights, hence the reason you're smelling the gas.

You can check for a weak ignitor by simply watching the oven when you start it, if the gas lights quickly, once the ignitor is glowing brightly and you've heard the "click" of the gas valve opening (in the oven), then everything is fine.

Hope you find this Very Helpful and best regards!

my oven was converted to LP gas we move overseas.It worked for about a year then all of a sudden the oven stopped working. The burners work perfectly but the oven just keeps clicking after preheat is finished. We replaced the upper electronics board so what could it be now

Oven does not light


even if the ingitor glows, and the oven wont lite, the odds are that the ingitor is bad. it must draw 3.2 amps to open the gas valve. the only way to test the ignitor is with an amp probe. replacing the ingnitor is about 90% a sure thing.
