Hi,

Just because it glows that does not mean it is not bad...
The ignitor is not working right and is going bad....
have the repair man replace the ignitor, or DIY....

Gas oven doesn't work


Sounds like it could be a bad Hot Surface Igniter, Check to see if you see glowing, if not, have the Igniter replaced.

When you turn the temp knob the light will come on the panel but the oven will not light. Stove works fine. We have had this unit for 12 years. Thanks Bob.....


can you hear gas coming in when you turn the know to "ligth" if not the you may have either a bad gas valve or the safety feature has detected something wrong, and has shut the gas off to the oven. first determine if you do indeed have gas., how does the oven light, is it pilot lit, or does it have a glow plug, if its pilot lit, make sure the pilot is running. if its a glow plug, you should be able to see it glow when you turn the oven on, if its not glowing it has to be replaced (or maybe the wiring has gone bad). either way that's where to start.

My tappan gas oven (Model # 30-4942-0005) doesn't light


yes the igniter is not calling for enough amps to open the control valve, the igniter needs to be repalced.

My Amana gas oven won't heat up gas smell strong


Sounds like a sticking gas valve or a defective hot surface igniter. Open the broiler drawer or remove the bottom cover in the oven compartment. The oven usually has a hot surface igniter or a spark igniter. Turn on the oven and watch for the hot surface igniter to start glowing. It should glow very bright. Once it is glowing the burner gas should come on. If you hear the gas come on it should light right away. If there is any delay shut off the oven and stay back. Let the gas clear out then inspect the area near the igniter and make sure the burner is not plugged(the little holes may have debris in them). If you turn on the oven and the igniter comes,glows brightly,no gas is heard but you can smell gas it is either a blocked burner orfice/assembly or sticking gas control valve. Try giving the burner and gas control valve a tap and see if it comes on. If you tap the control valve and it starts working then shut of the oven and try it several times. If it starts to come on and off now you may have cleared whatever debris was causing the problem. If it does it again then it could be the control valve or a weak hot surface igniter. The igniter can be tested with a ohm meter. Most of the time when I get this complaint it is the oven control valve that is sticking. Be very careful when doing these procedures....gas can build up in the oven compartment very quicky and flash if ignited. Always have the gas shut off valve at the back of the range within reach and the electrical outlet in case you need to unplug it.

Oven does not light


Try this:  . See if the ignitor is in the direct path of the gas. If not move it slightly to be closer to that path. Maybe something his it and it is out of position. Gas + Glow(together) = Fire The other possibility is that somethng in in the path of the gas leading to the glow coil.

THE OVEN WILL NOT HEAT


How old is the unit? Sometimes the igniter can glow but if it isn't drawing the right amount of power to open the gas valve then that is the safety that is built into the oven... So unless the power requirement is meant gas valve will not light. Even though the hot surface igniter is glowing red hot. chances are the igniter is bad. Let me know what turns up. ken
