I have a Maytag (Magic Chef) gas oven model CGR3730ADH. The oven will not heat up. The ignitor will glow/heat up but there does not appear to be any gas flow. The top burners work normally. After...


HI,
First of all, thank you for all your information. A rule I live by, even if an ignitor glows does not mean it works. The ignitor works on the flow of electricity through it not how bright it glows. If you can use a amperage meter, hook on one of the two wire to the ignitor directly. You need 3.2 to 3.6 amps to open the safety valve. If lower than 2.6 amps, it will not allow gas to enter the burner. If you have no clue what I am asking you to do, you can purchase and replace the ignitor and life will be better. P# 12400035. Its not difficult to change, the screws holding the ignitor in place sometimes strip out, when you get them off, you can replace them if needed.
Good Luck

Have a viking professional oven and it takes too


A weak oven ignitor will cause this problem. even though it eventually lights the temp has dropped considerably so you don't get consistent temp. turn the oven on and listen for the burner to light. should light within about 2 minutes. if not replace oven ignitor(s)

Oven not igniting


Very common problem, the ignitor or glow coil heats up but no gas comes out. For me for the last 12 years this repair has always been a weak ignitor. Call your parts store with the model number and check prices on the exact part and on any generic ignitors for this unit. Replace the ignitor and this should do the job. This can be a bad valve not letting the gas through, but again I have never seen that and I replace 4-6 ignitors a week. Good Luck, Appliance Specialists.

Gas ignites after 15 minutes Takes too long


Hi,

THis is due to the issue with the ignitor..

The ignitor takes 15 minutes long to ignite beacuse the current drawn by the ignitor is less than the 3.2 Amps, THe ignitor current should be more than 3.2Amps to enable ignition quickly..

I would recomment to change the ignitor to solve your issue..

Please rate this solution
Thanks

GE Gas built in oven Model JRS14 will not heat up


The bake ignitor has failed.Turn off the gas supply. Remove the racks. Then remove the bottom pan cover in the oven to access the ignitor. Place a amp meter on one wire of the ignitor.Turn the BAKE switch on. If it reads less than 3 amps,replace the ignitor.

Oven does not ignite, nogas coming out


Most likely the ignitor needs replaced. Checking it with a meter will verify. If it is OPEN then replace the ignitor. IF it SHORTED then the gas safety valve will be bad also.

Hello. I have an old Roper oven, model no.


The ignitor draws amperage thru gas valve which opens the bimetal valve to release the gas.Round ignitor 2.75 amps. Rect. 3.5 amps.Bottom line if burner dont fire within 60 seconds of turning orange you have a weak/bad ignitor.Hope this helps.Please rate my response :)

Slow oven lighting....bakes for 20 minutes than stops heating


Hi, The oven should ignite within 20 to 30 seconds. The most common problem is that the ignitor gets weak and will not open the gas valve like it should. This would be my first part to change.

Amana gas range bake burner does not heat


Pull the bottom of the oven off. You will see 2 to 4 screws that hold the panel on. The ignitor is under there. Look at the ignitor carefully for breaks. I say carefully as the ignitor is very easy to break.
