If the igniter is replaced but the problem is same then there are two possibilities that has to be checked. 1) Bad gas safety valve. 2) Bad control board. To check this parts try this procedure:-- Remove the wires from the gas safety valve and check for continuity between the terminals. If there is no continuity then the gas safety valve has to be replaced.

If there is continuity then the control board (aka a clock) has gone bad.

MY MAYTAG OVEN WILL NOT TURN ON WHEN I SET THE ELECTRONIC DIGITAL THERMOSTSTAT LIKE SAY I PROGRAM IT TO 350 DEGREES,,, NOTHING HAPPENS,,, BUT WHEN I GO TO SET THE BROILER THE BROILER WORKS JUST FINE,,, I...


First I want to commend you for your giving us good information to start with!
So-- we know we have gas, and we know the Broiler Valve and ignitor works-- Good observation!

However-- we have no ignitor (No bright red/Yellow glow)-- like you go for the Broiler-- right?

Well, we can NOT get ignition on the main burner-- unless we have the ignitor for the main burner getting hot, and then the gas valve to that burner can light, and give you heat...

Soo-- Likely we have an ignitor failure for the Main burner---

Do you have a warranty on the stove?
Do you have a service person qualified to tackle this job?
There will be electrical work, and parts obtainment issues to deal with now---
I suggest you call the local service people for this stove, and tell that that you need to have the main gas burner ignotor replaced for this stove model number-- and see what they tell you.

Let me know if I can help more--

Gas stove. Oven won't light/heat. Broiler does still work. Stove is between 7-8 years old.


Hi,

Welcome to FixYa.

Based on your description, "Oven won't light/heat. Broiler does still work" the hot surface ignitor for the bake burner is likely the problem.

Here's what you can try to varify if it's indeed the ignitor...if you're mechanically inclined.

**Turn off the breaker or unplug the range and turn off the gas to the appliance before attempting any service...safety first**

if the boiler has the same ignitor ( some do some don't ) one could swape the ignitor`s ( very carefully, they are very fragile and don`t like to be handled ) this will allow you to use the bake burner, but it will leave you without the broil function...until you have a diagnosis and can purchase another.

This will confirm or dismiss if the ignitor is at fault...99% of the time this is the case.

You should be able to find one at most brick & mortar appliance parts vendors or on-line depot's such as "repairclinic.com", "searspartsdirect.com" to name a couple.

You can ask for part number 12400035, That is the most common ignitor and is for Maytag, but built by "Norton" for gas oven`s.

I would still double check with your model number with the part`s professional`s.

Hope that help`s. Let me know if I can assist you further and good luck.

Thank`s for visiting "fixya" for your repair needs.

My 3 year old barely used Whirlpool Gas Oven has stopped heating. The gas stove top still works. Whirlpool customer service told me to clean out the gas chamber with a pin...there's nothing TO cleanout....


Just had a repairman here today March 31, 2010 for the same problem. $350 repair bill. There was a short in the gas valve that cause it to go bad and it also blew out the ignitaion computer board. Forget about replacing the ignitor. I already did and that was not the problem. So the qauestion for you is pay for the repair or buy a new stove.

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.

GE Profile Stove baking option not working


Possibly the bake igniter, the temperature sensor or the electronic oven clock/control. Does broil mode heat properly or does it run cool also? If broil heats to the proper temperature then the temperature sensor is probably ok. That leaves the ignitor or the controller which takes some more troubleshooting. If it is the controller, we repair them at www.fixyourboard.com.

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.

My stove works and so does my broiler. I replaced


If you use a multimeter, you can test the gas valve where the white and yellow wires connect is where your terminals for bake on that valve are. If you have continuity there, then check to make sure that igniter is wired ok.

Amana arg7800ww oven will not come up to temperature.


Your gas valve has a thermocouple circuit that will not let gas flow until the ignitor is hot enough. A failed ignitor can still glow but not be hot enough to open the gas valve. Replace your ignitor.

Sf195lehz5 free standing gas oven,


Check both gas valve solonoids for 216 ohms [blue broiler wire to the orange common and red oven wire to orange common] both must be ok.

Check oven temp sensor for 1080 ohms.

If above are ok then the problem is either the spark module or the control board.

Since the gas valve was not opening and there was not ignitor sound I replaced the spark module for about $90. You have a 50-50 chance of being right.

My range is relitively new and I'm haveing an oven light problem which I traced to the control board so I may replaced this board to for about $200.
