    My oven will not come on. the broiler works, the self clean cycle will start and only work about an hour. this model was HIGHLY recommended by CR and I'm very upset. Its 2 years old and I bought it despite owning other GE appliances that had timer problems. Can anyone tell me how to repair this? My husband is out of work and calling a repair shop is not an option!

I have a Maytag (Magic Chef) gas oven model CGR3730ADH. The oven will not heat up. The ignitor will glow/heat up but there does not appear to be any gas flow. The top burners work normally. After...


HI,
First of all, thank you for all your information. A rule I live by, even if an ignitor glows does not mean it works. The ignitor works on the flow of electricity through it not how bright it glows. If you can use a amperage meter, hook on one of the two wire to the ignitor directly. You need 3.2 to 3.6 amps to open the safety valve. If lower than 2.6 amps, it will not allow gas to enter the burner. If you have no clue what I am asking you to do, you can purchase and replace the ignitor and life will be better. P# 12400035. Its not difficult to change, the screws holding the ignitor in place sometimes strip out, when you get them off, you can replace them if needed.
Good Luck

Hotpoint gas stove. burners work, oven and broiler do not.


Probably the safety valve. This unit broils and bakes off the same gas burner. A spark ignitor lights the pilot and this save gas because no standing pilot is needed. It takes a few minutes for the thermocouple bimetal combo to release the gas. When the temp gets to the desired rate then the bulb on the oven control closes off the flow of gas. To recap: The flow of gas comes from a regulator along a rail which supplys the gas to the top burners and the oven control. older models had pilot light tubing going down to the oven and to the top burners. This newer style uses a spark module to light off the top burners and the oven. So when yall turn the the oven on the spark ignitor lights the pilot first and then after the mercury bulf thermocouple heats up the bimetal inside the valve opens allowing gas to flow out to the pilot and ignite the gas burner. the temp rises and the mercury bulb oven control expands closing off the flow but not the gas safety valve. I would suspect the safety valve on this one.

Broiler works, oven settings - no flame, no heat.


Hi, it sounds like the oven ignitor might be bad. Remove the floor panel inside the oven and you will see the ignitor attached to the burner assembly. Turn the oven on and see if it glows. You can test the connection for the ignitor and see if it gets 120V to it. The most common problem with the gas oven is the ignitor. Most of the time, the ignitor glows but is not strong enough to open the gas valve.
Please let me know if this was helpfull or if I can assist you further.

Thanks
Vic

Whirlpool gas oven sf315pemb1- oven not heating


Hi, It sounds like the ignitor has gone bad. Remove the floor panel in the oven and locate the ignitor fastened to the burner. There should be 120V going to the ignitor harness.
If you have voltage but no ignition, change the ignitor.
I hope this helps you. Please let me know if I can assist you further.

Oven burner won't light


You likely have a bad ignitor. It's like a mini element that heats up and then ignites the gas once the valve releases it. When the ignitor gets old it doesn't glow bight enough or draw enough amperage so the gas valve won't open. If you set bake and see a glow coming from under the plate in the oven but the burner never lights that's your culprit. They probably cost about $50-$80. Good luck!
