Oven,broiler won't light


The igniter is the most commonly defective part for a gas oven that won't turn on. The igniter has two main functions. First, the igniter draws electrical current through the oven safety valve to open it. Second, the igniter gets hot enough to glow and ignite the gas in the burner assembly. If the igniter gets weak, it will fail to open the safety valve correctly. If the valve does not open, the oven will not heat. To determine if the igniter is defective, observe the igniter when the oven is on. If the igniter glows for more than 90 seconds without igniting the gas flame, this indicates that the igniter is too weak to open the valve. If the igniter is weak, replace it. If the igniter does not glow at all, use a multimeter to test the igniter for continuity. If the igniter does not have continuity, replace it.

Igniters won't lite on stovetop


Check the wiring connection to igniter. If electricity is reaching the igniter and still nada, then the igniter is bad and needs replacement.

Oven does not ignite. Replaced igniter. Will light with match


It could be the igniter is too far away from the burner or the little holes that shoot the gas to the igniter are blocked with soot. I have seen where something has been pushed too far back and bent the igniter frame away from the burner too far to ignite.

IGNITER

If your gas oven is not heating, the igniter is the most likely the cause. This is a simple gas oven repair. To check the igniter, remove the storage drawer and the bottom of the oven (only if you are working on the bake burner). Now turn on the oven and observe, from a distance, the burner that is not heating. In a minute or so the igniter should glow red. If not, unplug power from oven. Then unplug the igniter and using your ohmmeter ,check to see if you have continuity between the two wires going to the igniter. If you don't have continuity, replace the igniter. If you do have continuity the igniter is still the likely problem, If you turned on the oven and the igniter did glow red, the igniter still is most likely the problem. This video will walk you through properly testing an oven igniter. You have to have an amp meter to check for sure, but I would not suggest buying an amp meter just to check this because 99% of the time its going to be the igniter. So I suggest just replacing the igniter. For those of you that already have an amp meter, clamp the amp meter on one of the wires going to the igniter then turn on the oven. If your igniter is round, the amp meter should read 2.6 to 3.0. If you have a flat igniter then the amp meter should read 3.3 to 3.6. If the amps are not in this range, the gas valve will not open to release gas to the igniter. To repair this, replace the igniter.

BURNER CLOGGED

This is another simple gas oven repair and it's one thing you may need to check before you change any parts. The burner has a lot of small holes that connect the flame all the way around the burner. If one of these small holes is stopped up, the burner will not light properly. To repair this, simply use a large needle or thin wire to clean each hole out. Note that this is not a very common problem but if this does fix your oven, it will save you a lot of money.

GAS VALVE

If your gas oven is not heating, the gas valve may be your problem. If your igniter isn't bad then the gas valve is the problem. This is a very uncommon failure in most ovens. But this is not a simple gas oven repair and it's best if this is changed by a professional because if the gas valve leaks it can be a major fire hazard and you have to adjust the valve to the kind of gas you are using.

Main Control

This is the last thing to check. If you have no power to the igniter when the oven is turned on the main control is the likely problem. On glowbar style igniters if you have no reading and there is continuity of the igniter replace the main control. On ovens with electronic igniters (these are the ones that click) these ovens have a separate spark control module that sends the power to the igniter. This can be difficult to check but in general if you have no power reaching the igniter the spark module or igniter module (there are many different names for this part) would need replacing.

Glowworm 24hxi combi boiler fault codes


it's an ignition fault (lockout) failed to light.

cause:
no gas
insufficient gas
incorrect gas valve adjustment
electrode ignition lead defective
electric igniter defective
check air inlet duct
check connections to igniter unit.

most common cause is igniter is defective (looks like a spark plug)

if you can hear a clicking when boiler goes to ignite, then it will be igniter at fault (no spark), check lead going to igniter (for any deterioration, looks like a ht lead). if all ok. change igniter.

hope this helps?

My oven will not heat up in the "bake" mode. It


Thank you for posting your question. What your describing is a bad bake igniter. When an igniter has failed you can usually see it glow but no heat. Sometimes this igniter will go out completely and you will not see a glow at all. When the igniter is working correctly it glows very hot and when ready it draws amps and sends a single to the gas valve to release gas to ignite a flame. The failed igniter part is affordable to fix and can be purchased at any appliance parts store or online. Be sure to have your model number handy and mention you need a bake igniter.
Take a look at this link it has a picture of the igniter you need #13

I will include steps to replacing your igniter and which should save you money on this repair.
  1. Unplug the range
  2. Take out racks
  3. Remove bottom cover of oven removing any screws associated
  4. Disconnect the burner plate
  5. Disconnect manifold tube with igniter attached and lay on its side
  6. Snip the 2x wires connecting the igniter about 2in in link
  7. Unscrew 2x screws holding igniter and replace and install new igniter
  8. Prep. wires and use ceramic wire nuts to connect wires.
  9. Reinstall all components
Retest the unit. New igniter will take a little longer to ignite that is normal.

Gas oven not getting hot - glow bar works but no gas to burner


This happens when an oven igniter (glow bar) is bad. The igniter must draw enough amps to turn on the gas to ignite the flame. If you have a square shaped igniter use this part#5303935066 If your have a round shaped igniter use part#wb2x9154. These igniter will pretty much work universally for most gas ranges or ovens.
  1. Remove the racks
  2. Unplug unit
  3. Take out the screw holding the bottom pan
  4. Remove screws holding manifold where igniter is attached
  5. Remove manifold cut wires about 2in link from igniter and clean leads.
  6. Unscrew and remove igniter
  7. Replace Igniter with new one and fasten onto manifold
  8. Clean wires and screw on ceramic nuts to wires
  9. Tuck wires back and Reinstall all components
Test your new igniter. You might notice it taking a little longer to light up but that is okay.
Please let me know if this was helpful by rating me a 4.
Thanks so much have a great weekend.

How do you ignite pilot light on maytag gemini range


There is no pilot on most modern appliances that use a gas source for ignition. The burner manifolds in the oven each use a glow bar or electrode type igniter with a gas safety valve to ignite. Both oven manifolds are controlled by the Electronic Oven Control (EOC) board, which is your clock/timer on the control panel. you can isolate the problem by following these tips:
1. If the surface igniters work, but the oven does not, the problem is NOT a gas related issue as the surface burners and oven are commonly fed from the same source.
2. If BOTH oven igniters are not working, you more than likely, have a control board problem, or two weak or failed oven igniters (not common).
3. If one of the igniters is still working (there's one for broil and one for bake), then the problem is probably NOT the control board, but an igniter issue.

Igniters grow weak with age and occasionally need to be replaced. Just because an igniter glows, does not mean it is good. If you are experiencing longer ignition times, or no ignition, this is most likely the case. The following link explains a little theory about these igniters and how to replace one:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r3575727-replacing_an_oven_igniter_on_a_gas_range

Replacement parts (if required) can be purchased at any of the following websites:

searspartsdirect.com
pcappliancerepair.com
appliancepartspros.com
repairclinic.com

Prices vary between these sites, so shop and compare. The first three sites listed also offer helpful exploded view diagrams to help you locate and properly identify the parts you need. The part number(s) for the model you have listed are as follows:

Bake Igniter (series 10)* - 74007399 Bake Igniter (series 11)* - 7432P143-60 Broil Igniter (series 10 and 11)* - 74007966
* The series is determined by the first two digits in the SERIAL NUMBER. If the number begins in "10", but is less than "11" it is a series 10. If the numbers is "11" or greater, then it is a series 11.
If you have any questions please post back and let me know. I hope this helps you.

Dacor gas range. I'm trying to figure out why it


Electric gas igniters sometimes get stuck in one position causing a clicking sound. The clicking sound that you hear is the electric arc that is pulsing from the igniter conductor (wire) to ground (the gas burner). It receives power from the electrical outlet that the stove is plugged into.
Residue from food and sometimes cleaning products may be preventing the igniter from producing a spark (Arc) to the base of the burner. This is a common problem that occurs when the stove has been cleaned or food is allowed to build up. Make sure that the igniter and the burner base are clean and dry. This will help with proper operation. Oven cleaner and a small tooth brush may be used to accomplish this. Another problem with ignition may occur if you have too little (touching) or too much space between the igniter and the base of the burner; it will prevent the burner from igniting. You should only have a little more space than the thickness of a nickel between the burner base and the igniter. A good “blue” arc from the igniter to the burner base is optimal. If this doesn’t work, you may need to replace the electric igniter module. Good luck.
