My elderly neighbour is trying to light her Hygena Classi Oven built in when she turns the knob to the required number no gas is coming out to light it.


Hello Jean;

My name is Peter. I am a retired field service appliance technician.

There are several different components that may be at fault for this problem. The most probable is a bad gas ignitor. Your ignitor may either be broken or too weak to open the gas valve.

On built in wall ovens:
1.) Remove the oven door. Tilt it out to where is stays slightly open and lift straight up. When replacing the oven door make sure the hinges that the door mounts on are pulled slightly out to slide the door back on.
2.) Remove the cover on the bottom of the oven. You will see the gas burner and in the center of the back wall the gas ignitor.
3.) To replace the ignitor, you will have to remove the two plates below the ignitor.

Locate your oven model number. It is on a label either on the face of the oven after you open the door or on the side of the door.

Go into the internet and search; "Ignitor and your model number".

Make sure both your oven gas and electrical power are turned off before you do anything!

GE Gas Range #JGSP28WEK 4WW Serial # HM215485Q Oven Won't Light Have removed ceramic ignitor, appears intact.


If you have a multimeter, check the voltage to your igniter. If you have voltage to it (probably a pulse) then it has to be a bad ignitor IF you have gas to the oven. If you do not have voltage, then it is probably the switch that is bad.

Caloric range oven, older at least 20 years old, the range burners spark, but will not light, i am assuming that its electronic ignition, no pilot light?


If you don't smell gas, then it is probably electronic ignition and not a pilot light.

But if your oven and none of the range burners light, are you sure you are getting gas to the unit or from the range valve to the burners and oven? Can you light the burners with a match? If you can you can rule out the valve and incoming gas line, and concentrate on the ignitors.

Viking gas oven model # VGIC3656BSS, serial #022404-2919 takes FOREVER to preheat up. Sometimes in excess of 40 minutes. Been a problem for a while. Looks like flames at bottom do not increase when oven...


When increasing the temp. on a gas range the oven's burners do not increase flame size as the cooktop burners do. It just keeps the burner lighted for a longer amount of time.

First if you can see the burners do they light within about a min. or less. If no you probably have bad igniters which are not lighting the burners as quickly as they should or they are "opening up" (stops working) when they get too hot. In this case replacement of the igniters should solve the problem.

Second if it lights quickly but still takes a while to heat; you want to look at the burners to ensure that the flames are down both sides of the burner tube and not dancing around too much. If only part of the two sides of the burner tubes are lighted then a pluged orifice or burner tube is the most likely cause. Once cleaned it should work fine.

As with anything mechanical there are numurous possiblities for something not working correctly and above are the two most popular reasons that come to my mind.

Caloric Gas Range Model #355 19 years old. Is there a replacement ignitor available to replace the old one?


Being that your range is 19 years old it might be a bit difficult to find the correct igniter but not impossible. The model number that you gave is not giving any good results. You can go here http://www.repairclinic.com/Caloric-Range-Stove-Oven-Parts?s=b74a13c249 and look at these igniters to compare with the one on your range. You might get lucky and one of these could be a replacement that will work. Most local range parts suppliers are very helpful on locating hard to find parts but you may need to remove the igniter and bring it in so they can match it up in their catalog. You might also be able to find the correct igniter if you use the part number on the ceramic igniter housing to do a parts search with. Most 20 year old ranges use a standard "flat style" hot surface igniter but there are different OHM ratings for some igniters and this rating is important for you to match up correctly with your current igniter OHM rating or you could damage the gas control valve and/or the new igniter.

Oven does not light, model #LCRG760A serial#201993Fk top burners light ok.


Open the range door, remove racks so that you can have enough room for your troubleshooting or observation.
Remove the two nuts of the oven cover.
Turn ON your oven knobs observe the ignitor for about 14 seconds if glow at all.
If the ignitor glow weak "orange" it shows that the ignitor need to be replace bcos it doesnt draw enough current to light up the gas.If it does not glow at all. visualized the ignitor if shorted "whites fume" on the surface or broken.If not, remove the power plug from wall socket, check the leads of the ignitor connectors, set your meter to resistance(ohmic value). if no reading or beeping sound - that indicate bad ignitor . part # for your model is PS50459.
If does not glow at all, check the safety valve perhaps one or two pins burnt with the wire harness.You may also check connectors leads that goes to your ignitor.
Good luck.
