Oven range will not light. glow plug seems to be working


You need a new glo-plug. They still glow when they go bad but not enough to ignite the burner. It's a fairly easy DIY project.

Amana stove, oven igniter works but oven wont light


although the bake ignitor appears to be glowing, it probably does not glow with the intensity it needs to open the safety valve assy, VERY common problem, go aheadand replace the ignitor, this will correct your issue

The clock(computer?)broke so I replaced that part it seems to work. I then tried the oven it will not light. The ignition glows red but does not light the gas. I can smell gas. I tried lighting the oven...


Just because an igniter glows, does not necessarily mean it is good. The following link explains:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r401858-replacing_oven_igniter_gas_range

It sounds like you may have had a couple of problems. The gas smell concerns me though. If an igniter is weak, you shouldn't get any gas flow in the oven. This is a designed safety feature that prevents free flowing gas from filling up the oven cavity without ignition. I would recommend checking your igniter for the proper current and/or replace. The link I provided, lists the steps required. If you have any questions, please let me know. I hope this helps you.

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.
