Just because an igniter is glowing does not necessarily mean it is good. Click on the following link for some helpful advice on how to determine if the igniter is working properly:

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

Now...if you still suspect a gas regulator problem, it is usually located in the back of the range near the bottom. Following the gas lines form the oven manifolds will help you. You may have to remove the back panel or remove the bottom drawer to access. CAUTION: Use care if you have to move the range that you don't stress the gas lines. This can cause gas leaks. On the side of the regulator or gas safety valve is a gas safety switch. Sometimes this switch gets turned off when moving the range. There should be printed instructions on the valve showing what position the switch should be in.

I hope this helps you. If you need further assistance, please let me know.

Hg2415uc siemens oven not heating


The ignitor, or glow coil, has to draw something like 3.2 amps for the safety gas valve to open to let gas in. With that said, just because the ignitor is glowing, doesn't mean that its working properly. I've had to change one safety valve in a total of 13 years of doing this, so I'm thinking the ignitor on your machine is bad.

Our GE profile oven model JGsp31wet1ww oven will not heat up. When i set the oven to say 400 degrees, it just stays at 100 and never heats up. The broiler seems to work fine and the stove top gas burners...


pull out the racks and remove the bottom floor of the oven,turn it on bake,if the ignitor doesn't glow most likely it's bad,if it does glow and it doesn't ignite within 40 to 60 seconds the ignitor is bad.even though it glows doesn't mean it's good,it works by amps.it takes 3.2 amps.for a flat ignitor to open the gas valve and 2.5 amps for a round ignitor to open the gas valve.

The stove burners work but oven doesnt i did test and display says good but it says cool on display


First, check to see if the ignitor glows after turning the oven on. Give the ignitor about a minute or so and you should see a bright yellow glow from the ignitor. If not, you have either a faulty Oven Control or a burnt out ignitor.

If you do see a bright yellow glow (dull orange indicates a burnt out ignitor), you could have a problem with the safety valve or the regulator. First check to see that the "flip switch" on your regulator is turned to the on position. This switch is usually located towards the bottom of the regulator. This switch controls the gas flow to the oven only, and should be in the down position.

If the switch on your regulator is on (some models may not have this switch), then the safety valve is quite likely the problem.

Oven takes up to 15 minutes to light. glow plug does appear to be bright orange immediately after turning oven on. it is a propane unit.


Hi, glow plug (element) should glow red, maybe you got faulty thermocouple, located ot bottom of oven burner, unit where gas enter oven burner, they could either be gas pilot or electrical element as metering device, give a little tap, could be stuck, could also be your thermostat, check oven thermostat, many ways to check oven thermostat, give thermocouple a little tap located at beginning of oven burner, if it didn't work, call a mechnic to make futher checks. good luck.

Oven heats very slowly (Jenn-Air JGS9900BDS). Cooktop works fine. Broiler works. No error codes.


hi, Could be a bad bake element or a bad temperature sensor. If the element will glow bright red/orange with no hotspots it is OK. Take a volt/ohm meter set for ohms and check the temp sensor. If less than 1050 ohms replace it.

Not heating properly


There are two possibilities, both of which I think you will need a technician to diagnose. There is an electronic sensor on the later model ovens that sends info to the Electronic Oven Control (If you have a touch panel yours is electronic), or the older ovens use a hydraulic thermostat. The sensor on the electronic model can mess up temperature or it can be the EOC. On the older models, usually there is only the thermostat where you adjust temperatue that can cause this problem. Because you elements get red, they are OK, your problem is in the regulation of them. good luck, AJ

Oven not lighting on Amana model agds902ss


Helloemauldin Welcome to Fixya
My name is Huum,

When you turn the thermostat on your range on it sends 120 volts to the bake valve and ignitor. The bake valve and ignitor are wired in series and the ignitor draws all the current and heats up. As the ignitor heats its resistance changes and when it is cherry red the current switches to the gas valve and it opens. The amp draw on the ignitor needs to be 3.2-3.6 amps for the gas valve to open. The gas valve has gas to it at all times. The gas valve should open within 40 seconds after the ignitor starts to glow.
If the ignitor is glowing red and the gas valve doesn’t open the ignitor is usually the problem. Sometimes the ignitor will glow red but the resistance doesn’t change and the gas valve doesn’t draw the current.

This is not a do it your selfer!

Frigidaire gas range FGF337


The ignitor should be almost a white hot color very bright . If it is orange or kinda reddish, the ignitor probably isn't getting hot enough to open the saftey valve. you could check the amp draw on ignitor , but most of the time if the ignitor isn't glowing bright almost white , that is probably the problem, besides that if and only if ignitor was good then i would look at the saftey valve. My money is on the ignitor.:)

Re:Whirlpool SF310PKE gas range


When the oven safety valve refuses to open and let gas through, it's almost always because not enough current is flowing through the ignitor. Often an aging ignitor will appear to be glowing pretty brightly but still won't draw enough current to make the valve open. The first thing to try replacing is the ignitor.

You describe your ignitor as "red and glowing" but oven ignitors normally get a lot brighter than "red" -- well into what I'd call yellow.
