I have been where you are and figured that since the ignitor is glowing that the gas valve or something electrical went wrong....
Upon doing more reasearch I found out that the problem was the ignitor...
It seems that the ignitor needs to pull X.X amount of amps before the gas valve will open. After the ignitor gets older it draws less amps and crosses the threshold for it to activate the gas valve...not enough amps it thinks the ignitor is not working properly and so no gas...this number if different for each range/manufacturerer...
All this to say that before ripping things apart, I would change the ignitor out...I bet it will fix your problem....
here is the part you need...

here is a tip that I wrote about this also...

Hi, I have a Maytag stove and unfortunately have lost my manual. In the last couple of days there has been an alarm going off with F1 appearing on the display panel. Once at 5:30 am and at 1:00 am. Could...

With Maytag Ovens the F1 error means Defective touch pad or clock (ERC). This simple test will help determine whether the ERC (Electronic Range Control or Clock) or the touch pad is defective when F1 error code is present. (If you don't feel comfortable doing this yourself you need to arrange a repair technician to look at it for you)

1. Disconnect power to the range (unplug the range power cord or turn the power off to the range at the circuit breaker). It is very important that the power to the range has been disconnected, so please double check before continuing.
2. Gain access inside the control panel.
3. Disconnect the touch pad (also called keypad or membrane switch) ribbon from the ERC.
4. Make sure there are no lose wires, or anything else that may cause a short when power is turned back on. Assemble the control panel back the way it was.
5. Turn the power back on.
6. Wait for at least one hour to see if the F1 code comes back (usually accompanied by a beeping sound).
7. If F1 comes back, replace the ERC. If it does not, replace the touch pad.

Regards, Kat (please leave feedback, thanks)

I got the automatic ignition on the stove top wet last night and it will not ignite the gas

I always wipe the area with a paper towel. The I turn on the gas and ignite it with a match or lighter. Let it run for a little while and it should dry out the ignition so that it will light automatically the next time, I hope this helps. You may have to do it two or three times to assure it's completely dry and capable of lighting.
If this helps, please come back to Fixya and rate my solution!

I am painting in my kitchen and it is recommended to turn off stove pilot gas so know combustion happens. I have a Tappan gas stove that says "electronic ignition" on it. How do I turn off...

If you have an electronic ignition, there are no open flames. So you are ok to paint. Just make sure to not turn anything on while the paint fumes are in the air and you will be good.
If you do want to turn off the stove, unplug it from the wall. To turn the gas off you will need to pull it away from the wall and turn off the valve behind it, if it has a valve, some do not.

The igniter will come on but no gas, the broiler and stove top both work. I'm and hvac service tech and need some help.

you will either have a weak ignitor or you have a bad safety valve, but before you go buy any thing take the igniter from the broiler and install on the bake and see if works, if works you know it is the igniter, if not it will be the safety valve (fyi you can also turn on oven, then when igniter gets really orange you can tap the safety valve and if it ignites it will be safety valve)

I have a Kenmore stove, model #911.93478891. The burner plug has gone bad and I need to know where to get one. Thanks, Karen

You can order parts at any of the following websites:

The replacement part number for the Terminal Block (includes the wires and receptacle) is WB17X210.

All these sites are reputable and have great service with competitive prices so shop and compare. The first three sites I have listed also have exploded view illustrated parts listings to help you locate and properly identify any parts you may need.

NOTE: carries a universal replacement kit that is currently on sale for on $7.95 each. This includes the receptacle and wires as well.

NOTE: If your model number is not listed at the sites I have listed, use the part numbers from the Sears website and use that as your search criteria. In some cases, the model number will not be listed, but the part numbers will.

To replace, follow these steps:

1. Make sure you have the stove UNPLUGGED or breaker turned off. Dangerous voltage is still present even with the range turned off.

2. If you buy the replacement kit with the full length wires, you will need to trace the wires from the OLD receptacle all the way back the infinite control switch at the control panel. Unplug each one and connect the new plug wires. Neatly tuck any excess wire in the control panel and use zip ties to secure them.

3. If you purchase the universal kit that has the shorter wires, you will need to cut and splice the wires together. Make sure you use the ceramic lugs that come with the kit. DO NOT use any other type of wire lug. These are heat resistant. Once you have the lugs tightened place the heat shrink (black plastic sleeves) over the wire crimp and lugs. When the stove gets hot, this heat shrink will shrink to fit over the junction forming a protective barrier to keep grease and oil out. NOTE: You speed up this process by carefully using a lighter to heat up the heat shrink (do not use a direct flame as it will melt).

If in doubt, follow the instructions that come with the kit you purchase.

If you have any questions, please post back and let me know. I hope this helps you.

20" gas stove: has pilot light in oven, oven lights but then after several minutes will turn off. do not smell gas after it turns itself off. Using 3/8" gas line. Please advise as to potential problems...

The oven igniter should stay on constantly as long as oven control is calling for heat and not fade off. If the igniter is too weak and not pulling enough current it may not open the gas valve correctly and gas will be let out of the gas valve and not igniter.
The likely failure is a weak oven glow bar igniter. I recommend calling a service technician to diagnose and repair your range.

Hope this helps .

I have a kenmore stove whose burners wont light. oven works fine. burners will spark but no gas comes out. recently I turned off the power to the stove by turning the fuse off. what do I need to do to get...

If the gets give no gas then sounds like a Thermocouple, this is a device that allows the gas to come on after a period of time ensuring that the pilot is lit and heated up this thermocouple, once it heats it then allows gas to enter and ignite the main burner..hope this helps ,please leave feedback.
