Question about Hotpoint RGB528 Gas Kitchen Range

Oven & broiler not working

I have a GE gas oven

Hotpoint Electric Ignition
Model #: RGB528 ET4WW
Serial #: D5156500P
yesterday the oven and broiler stoped working. I thought I had a pilot light but I'm not sure. I tried turning the gas on and lighting it with a match and it didn't work. I do not smell any gas so I'm guessing a safety valve has shut the gas off. The stovetop burners all work normally. The clock works as usual too. I can't find a manual for this. Do I have a pilot light? if so how do I reignite it? if not what are possible causes? I'm trying to fix this myself.
Thanks
DEM Here is a brainteaser for you. Hotpoint model RGB526PEA1WH. Gas oven will not burn unless the top burners are lite first. I can see the oven igniter light up, but the gas is not flowing to begin its burn. I turn on the top burners for a minute or so, then like majik the oven begins to burn.
Once in a while the oven will begin to burn without lighting the top burner, but very rarely. Sometimes the oven will shut off after reaching the proper temp, but fail to re-lite to maintain the cooking temperature.
ideas?

You ignitor is going out you will need to replace it the ignitor needs to draw a min of 3.2 amps in order to open the gas valve coil if short of this it will not open at thimes it may just have enough to open

GE Gas Oven and broiler not working


No, there is a "hot-point" ignition for each but they are both controlled by the ignition module, easy fix, follow the wires (2) from the Broiler ignition point.... they will lead you to the module. More then likely it's wire connection came apart.....

Hi,
My bet is that the broiler ignitor has been out for a while and you just never knew it...
I would change the ignitor as a first try to fix it it is themost common failure..

Hello, Can't find model/serial number. Older Tappan custom gas stove. Burners work but oven does not. Told it has electric ignition that could be problem. Where to find it, how to remove, where to get...


Serial number labels are usually located in any one of a number of places -

Under the cooktop in one of the corners
Inside the oven door frame (not on the door)
Behind the bottom drawer pullout on the oven, left hand side
Oven back.

If this unit is anything less than 20 years old, there will be a label somewhere.

Reply back you findings and I can give you more information as to how to repair, and we can identify part numbers. You might also try www.repairclinic.com and see if you can drill down through parts when only knowing the manufacturer.
