Oven is not working; won't preheat or get hot

The burners work. The broiler turns on. I attempted to preheat the oven last night and it never came on. The oven is not working. Does anyone have any idea what the problem is? Ignitor is what someone told me? or could it be something else?

Called a reepairman who couldn't even figure out how to take the range door off. I called the GE Support Line and they gave me directions on how to take the door off. I ended up paying this guy $137.00 for me to basically do the repair myself ($62 for the part and $75 for labor). The ignitor was replaced. I just hope it will keep working. You smell alot of burning when the oven is on now. The old ignitor had burn spots on the wires as though they had caught fire. The old ignitor also had wire covers and the new ignitor does not have these (wires are exposed and very thin). When I asked the repairman about some other issues. He had no clue as how to respond. Don't call the repairman!!! You can replace the ignitor yourself.

Oven & Broiler quit working on same day.


Yes, I think you have the answer. If you have the knowledge, check the electrical supply side, fuse etc. Check out your user manual in the fault finding section. The oven has a thermo switch that prevents the gas opening if theres no ignition.

Maytag Prec touch 750 lower oven takes too long to preheat


This is a common problem that happens when the oven gas control valve is sticking. This can be caused by a weak hot surface igniter or a defective gas control valve. One thing that you can try(be very careful doing this) is to give the gas control valve a light tap with something hard like a wrench when the oven is turned on,igniter is glowing but the burner is not on. You will need to remove the broiler/storage drawer at the bottom of the oven. Once you pull the drawer out you should see the gas control valve at the back of the range. Try turning on the oven and lightly tapping the valve housing. This may loosen up any debris inside the control valve housing that might be causing the problem. If the oven burner comes on then try completely turning the oven on and back of several times. And when I say completely I mean turn it on after the igniter is not glowing and burner has shut off. This works about 30% of the time. If the burner control valve stick after trying this procedure then it could be the control valve and/or the hot surface igniter defective. The hot surface igniter would need to be disconnected from it's harness and tested with an OHM meter. Most igniters should have a 500 to 700 OHM reading. If you get a reading that is way off then the igniter is defective and replace it. If the igniter tests good then the gas control valve is suspect and replace it. Most appliance parts retailers will test your igniter for free. When the igniter is on it should glow very brightly. If it is dim then that is a sure sign it is bad.

My GE Spectra gas oven worked fine last night. Today, the oven will not heat. The broiler and the burners work fine, as does the clean feature. But nothing when the oven is turned on.


Are you sure the cleaning process works, because usually when the oven wont work, the clean process wont work. If you are correct, then the problem is most likely the control panel not responding to the bake setting. This will require either a new touch panel or a new control circuit board.

Oven not heating


On the bottom is a link of what your oven is. I'm pretty sure it's the ingnightor #16. You should see a glow red hot when you turn on the oven or broil. Very common problem and pretty reasonable price to repair. Unless that glows and get's red hot, it will not turn on the gas. I think that should do it. Let me know if you need anything else.

Oven Not Working


It could be the element, but if neither the top or bottom element are coming on, it could be an issue with the electronics... Have you tried any of the other oven functions? Is it a convection oven? Maybe try using the convection bake or roast/convection roast functions..(roast function doesn't go through a pre-heat cycle, I have the same stove). If it's still under warranty, I would be calling for service.

GE Profile Spectra XL 44 gas oven


If you can smell the gas when you turn on the oven, it may be on a separate igniter that has gone bad. I would check this first. If you are not getting gas to the oven, there is possibly an issue with the supply line.
