Stopped heating. Had service repair yesterday and he replaced the ignitor. Does not heat again, even though it warmed up briefly after the repairman completed the job. What else could the problem be?

Hello- Have him come back out (AT NO CHARGE) and check the gas valve coils these are probably not opening the valve, thus letting the gas out. It is a common issue and sometimes we, the Techs, need to sit there and watch the ignitor light the gas for a whole cycle. Often it will heat for 30 minutes and then the coils will stop opening the valve when told to by the timer. It is possible that there is a thermostat issue but less likely. Hope this helps, best regards.

Dacor PGR 30 oven does not heat


I have had the same miserable experience - replacing the brain, touchpad, expensive parts - for this supposedly high-end appliance.

Have you checked the ignitor bar? See a good explanation of that at http://www.ignitors.com/oven-ignitors/
and also http://www.theignitorstore.com/product/frigidaire_oven_range_igniter_5303935066/range_oven_igniters
