Westinghouse oven no gas but supply and power is good


Your subject line says dryer but the text is about a stove.... This applies to your stove. Check to see if something fell down the back of your stove, there usually is a gas shut off at the floor that may have been inadvertently turned off. You may have to pull out the stove slightly, to see behind the stove.

Fridgiaire range model XFGF3005LWB


the glow plug may be working as in its glowing,but even so they can seem to be working,but if they are weak they can appear o.k. but wont pass enough current to completely open the gas valve and keep it fully open,thats why it sometimes wont light or if they do the flame is wavering or small and you smell gas,just replace the glow plug

Westinghouse oven LPG 527 wont stay alight and grill wont start


Normally the grill is completely separate to the oven. Press the ignitor before you turn on the grill, as, to ignite, oxygen needs to be present (ie: not flooded with gas) . and you should be able to see the spark from the ignitor in the grill. if you can't, then you may have problems with your ignition pack or ignition leads.

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.

OVER WONT HEAT UP


make sure the hose is connected to the propane tank and that the tank valve is opened letting gas into the grill exhausts... and then light the igniter but make sure the release valves on the grill arent on max... start it on low to med.

Oven & hob taking a long time to come on(on FULL pressure)


Hello mick1939. Are the ignitors the clicking/sparking type or the glow bar type?
If they are the glow bar type, when they get older they don't send enough amps to the gas safety valve thus only letting a small amount of gas to the burners. Try replacing them if they are glow bars.

Pilot Light Wont Light


Take off the top cover plate inside the oven. Now with the door open turn the oven on does the hot surface glow? If it doesn't glow then you have a bad igniter and needs to be replaced. What ever you do don't touch the surface of the new igniter human oil will shorten the life of the igniter. now if the hot surface glows then the gas valve is bad and need to be replaced. I'm betting it's the hot surface.

WHY WON'T MY OVEN HEAT UP?


Most modern gas ovens and many broilers use a "glow-bar" style of igniter that glows red-hot to ignite the gas. If the igniter doesn't reach the proper temperature, the gas valve won't open. You may need to replace the igniter.
