Oven Bake problem

I just went looking for a glow bar and found an additional ignition unit and gas manifold under the drip pan.

I have a Kenmore Gas Wall Oven Model Number 911.30469894. When BAKE is selected, temperature shows 100 degrees and the oven never starts up or gets hot. BROIL works fine. Thank you, John


The oven control supplies voltage to the oven igniter/gas valve circuit. When the oven control is set to Bake, voltage is supplied to the oven igniter which should glow bright red to almost white hot. Once the igniter comes on and begins to glow it must pull enough current to cause the gas valve to open so the burner can ignite from the igniter. I added an image below with the theory of operation. Click this link:--http://media.fotki.com/1_p,swbbsqrsgstsqkkxgtqsskgwtqkq,vi/wrgtsbrktxwdfwfbgdg/1/1303472/5961857/image5576034710104836299img-or.png

----Open the broiler drawer and then set the oven control to bake and watch to see if the glow bar igniter glows or not. If it does not glow, the failure could be a broken Igniter, failed oven control board or gas valve. If the igniter is glowing red, then it can be possible that gas valve is faulty. To see how igniter looks. See the fig below:--

------------

Also to confirm, check to see if the igniter is getting 120 volts when it's turned on. If it gets 120 volts, then your safety gas valve is bad because it's not letting the neutral go through. Otherwise, if it's NOT getting 120 volts, your control board shorted out and you need a new control board.
But as you mentioned that control board is replaced. So igniter should get 120 volts. If valve is faulty. But if igniter is not glowing then its faulty igniter confirmed.

In most of the cases the igniter is faulty, because gas valve getting faulty is very rare. But still getting the voltages checked, will confirm. These will help. Thanks. Helpmech.

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.

IGNITER GLOWS RED HOT OVEN DOES NOT IGNITE


Just because an igniter glows does not mean it is good. The following link explains a little theory about glow bar style igniters and how to replace one:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r401858-replacing_oven_igniter_gas_range

An igniter will become weak with age. Most gas ranges have a separate igniter for each oven manifold (one for Bake, and one for Broil). The bake igniter usually requires replacement more often due to frequency of use. If the broiler still works, you do not have a gas problem as both manifolds are usually fed from the same gas regulator and safety valve.

Replacement igniters can be purchased at any of the following websites:

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

Use whatever parts source you like, but I found these sites to offer the best service. Prices vary between them so shop around for the best deal.

If you have questions about this repair, or require additional assistance, please let me know. I hope this helps you.

Oven will not ignite, but broiler and stovetop work . How to light the pilot light on the oven??


Most modern stoves no longer have a pilot. The problem is more than likely caused by a bad igniter on the bake manifold. The following link explains igniter types and how to replace one:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r401858-replacing_oven_igniter_gas_range

Modern stoves are equipped with either a glow-bar or spark type igniter. These igniters do become weak with age and fail. This tends to be more common with the bake feature because it gets used more often. If the igniter is worn to the point that it longer produces the correct current potential or spark, the gas valve will not open and you will not have ignition. This is actually a designed safety feature that prevents free flowing gas from entering the oven cavity without ignition. Such a condition would be dangerous and could cause a flash ignition or explosion.

If the model number you have this listed under is correct, you can see an illustration of your stove at appliancepartspros.com. Just type in the model number and look under the "Gas Burner Parts" section for item number 28 (part #AP2014008).

If you have questions, or require additional assistance, please post back and let me know. I hope this is helpful to you.

Range Oven Will not light


Check your igniter for the bake manifold. Open the oven door and look down at the bottom oven pan. Set the oven to bake and see if you can notice a glowing or clicking noise coming from under the oven pan. This will tell you if your igniter is attempting to work or not.

Now...just because an igniter glows or clicks does not necessarily mean it is good. They can become weak with age and fail to draw the required current to open the gas safety valve. The bake igniter commonly goes bad first, because of the frequency it gets used. The following link will explain:

Burners work,Broiler works but oven does not preheat


If everything works on your range, but the oven, the most likely culprit is the igniter for the BAKE manifold. What is confusing me, though is the statement in your question where you say the "oven will light up, but never get hot". Yet, you say the oven does not ignite. Can you clarify this? In some ovens the BAKE and BROIL manifolds BOTH light when preheating, to reduce the warm up time. Once the desired temperature is reached the manifold not in use, will shut off.

In any case, on a gas range, the burners for the BAKE and BROIL manifolds use an electric glow bar type igniter. There's a separate igniter for EACH burner. When you make a bake or broil selection on your oven control, the respective igniter begins to glow. After the igniter reaches a certain current potential, the gas safety valve is opened, gas flows to the manifold, and voila! You have ignition. It can take as long as 90 seconds for the burner to ignite. What can happen over time, is the igniter becomes weak or fails. If the igniter becomes weak, it will still glow, but it never reaches the desired current potential to open the gas safety valve. The result: you end up with an igniter glowing with no ignition. And, if you're like me, you're left scratching your head wondering why the thing isn't working when it "looks" like it is. You can easily tell if the igniter is working by opening your oven door and selecting bake. Watch the oven pan in the bottom of the oven. You should see an orange glow coming from under it. It here's no glow at all, the igniter has probably failed. If there IS a glow, a current reading will tell if it's within tolerance. The following link explains more on these igniters and how to replace one:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r401858-replacing_oven_igniter_gas_range

The bake igniter is a common fail item as it gets used more frequently than the broil function. On your range both igniters are interchangeable. You can purchase replacements on line at searspartsdirect.com, repairclinic.com, or appliancepartspros.com. The part number is WB2X9154. Shop all three sites for the best price.

I hope this helps you. If my assessment of your symptoms is wrong, or if you need further assistance, please let me know.

The gas oven won't ignite BUT the broiler will


If the oven broiler lights, but the bake manifold does not, you more than likely have a bad igniter. There is a separate igniter for the bake and broil manifolds. Since the bake feature gets used more frequently, it is common for it to wear out faster. The following link explains oven igniters:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r401858-replacing_oven_igniter_gas_range

You can remove the bottom panel of the oven and the flame spreader to get a good view of the igniter for an initial visual inspection. NOTE: Just because an igniter glows, does not mean it is good. As I stated before, they do become weaker with age and may not produce enough current to open the gas valve. I hope this information helps you. Please post back with your complete model number if you require additional assistance.

Gas stove


The JGRP17 (not a full model number) does not have a pilot light. It uses glow bar ignitors. Watch the burner at the top of your oven when you turn on broil. After a short time the glow bar ignitor begins to glow, and a short time after that the broiler burner should ignite. The same thing should happen with the oven burner under the floor of the oven when you attempt to bake. If the igniter does not glow, or glows and burner does not light, replace ignitor. (looks like part # WB2X9154)

I am assuming the BROILER works fine in the oven, right? If so, you may have a bad igniter for the BAKE manifold. It is common for them to wear out or become weak. Since the BROILER is not commonly used as much as the BAKE function, the BAKE igniter tends to wear out faster. You can check the igniter by removing the bottom plate of the oven, exposing the BAKE manifold. There will be a glow bar type igniter that begins to glow when the turn the oven on to preheat. If the igniter does not glow...a resistance reading will determine if it still good or not. It should read a low resistance if good. If the igniter glows, but still does not ignite, take a current reading. The igniter will have a current reading of 3.2 to 3.7 amps if good. In either case, if you do not get the desired readings, simply replace the igniter. There are two types of igniters listed under your model number:

Horizontal Mount - Part: #1034629 Price: $44.50
Vertical Mount - Part: #949510 Price: $41.70

This depends on how yours is mounted. Refer to your owners manual to see if there is a parts index listing. I hope this helps you. Post back with comments if I can assist any further.

CAUTION: Make sure you disconnect power from the range BEFORE connecting meter leads to the igniter leads. The igniter connector is usually found under the oven behind the lower drawer. In addition: if you DO purchase a new igniter, use care in handling it. The oil from your hands can potentially damage the igniter coil if you are not careful. This will result in a shorter life expectancy.
