Diplomat ADP 5520 Stainless Steel Range not getting hot enough


The circular element that the fan sits behind heats the oven. Ensure the thermocouple is back in the right place. Too near the element and the oven will stay cool.
Circular elements can be pricey and fitting should cost no more than an hours labour.

Magic Chef oven won't lite. The ignitor glows red hot but no flame. After about 10 minutes of being on I start to smell gas. Not a strong smell but its in the air. I'm thinking gas valve. I did a...


Hello,

The problem with your oven is that ignitor is weak and not drawing enough amprage to open the gas valve, the gas you smell was since the ignitor does come on it allowed the gas valve to open a wee bit but since ignitor is weak it wont allow gas valve to open fully. I know you going to doubt that what i'm telling you is correct, i base my diagnosis on my 30 years experience as a appliance repair technician.Replace ignitor and enjoy your baked meal

Is the top heating element inside the oven supposed to get hot even if not set on broil?


Yes the top element does get hot even on bake but it does not get red hot just hot. It will get hot enough to burn you so be very carful.

My Amanda gas oven Model no. AGS781WW is not heating up in the oven, nor does the broiler come on. The electronic ignition glows, I don't smell any gas in the oven. The cooktop comes on fine.


even if the ignitor glows it may not be getting hot enough to light the gas. if it does not get hot enough the gas valve should not open. try changing the ignitor, usually 30 - 60 dollars.

My bosch oven grill element is not working and my oven does not seem to be getting as hot as it should. any ideas what it could be.


More than likely the grill element has failed, and this could account for the oven not getting hot enough, as on some makes, the grill element is on at the same time as the oven element, so if the element has failed, then it will not be hot enough.
My advice would be fit a new grill element, and this hopefully will solve the problem of the oven not being hot enough.
Please rate my solution.
Thankyou.

How do I light the oven on a gas stove


If this is a newer stove (that does not have a pilot light...and most newer stoves don't), you shouldn't have to light the oven manually (if you think you need to, you have a faulty stove). Manual ignition of a stove is also potentially dangerous as larger amounts of gas in the oven can cause small explosions. Most modern gas stoves use a very hot glowbar to both regulate the amount of gas entering the oven and igniting that gas. If you have a faulty glowbar, it will not allow enough gas to enter the oven and may not be hot enough to ignite the little gas that does enter (that is why you may smell gas). It sound like you may need to replace the glowbar (or visually inspect the glowbar to see if it gets red hot. If it does, it may still be faulty (not drawing enough power). The only way to test this is to use a clamp-on ampmeter and test the current flow through the wires feeding the glowbar. They should read between 3.1 and 3.7 amps. Anything lower means the glowbar should be replace. If you cannot see the glowbar get red hot, you have an electrical problem or a circuit board problem.

Amana arg7800ww oven will not come up to temperature.


Your gas valve has a thermocouple circuit that will not let gas flow until the ignitor is hot enough. A failed ignitor can still glow but not be hot enough to open the gas valve. Replace your ignitor.

Oven takes a long time to heat up


your ignitor could be going out. the ignitor has to get hot enough in order for the gas to turn on and heat your oven. if your ignitor is going out, sometimes it doesn't glow hot enough for the gas to turn on, or it could be that is takes longer than normal to get hot enough to turn the gas on. I would replace the ignitor and that should solve the problem. Joe
