If you are concerned about the two electrical wires that connect to a replacement heating element, don't worry. It's AC, the heating element is just a big resistor, and the wires are electrically interchangeable. Just make sure the connections are clean, the wires aren't mechanically stressed, the metal terminals aren't too close to the metal parts other than the heater connections, and the wire insulation won't be in direct contact with the heater.

If you have more than two wires, or you are talking about a mechanical issue like how to mount the heater element, you'll need to post back with the model number and a more detailed description of the problem (for electrical issues, include the wire colors). Many ovens have a copy of the wiring diagram somewhere inside the back of the oven - this will show what color of wire goes where electrically.

Oven will not light sometimes


I HAD THE SAME TROUBLE THIS WEEK-I'VE GOT A KENMORE RANGE WITH ELECTRIC-GAS COMBO AS MOST ARE NOWADAYS. THE TECHNITION THAT CAME DOWN SAID 95% OF THE TIME IT'S THE GLOW BAR IGNITOR THAT GOES BAD.
EVEN IF IT GLOWS A LOT OF THE TIME ITS STILL BAD BECAUSE IT DOESN'T PUT OUT ENOUGH ENERGY TO OPEN THE SAFETY VALVE TO IGNITE THE GAS. THAT GLOW BAR IGNITOR CAN BE FIT WITH SEVERAL DIFFERENT ONES UNIVERSALLY BECAUSE IT CAN BE SPLICED INTO OLD WIRE PLUG AND USED . YOU CAN WATCH YOU TUBE VIDEOS AND DO IT YOURSELF IF COMFORTABLE DOING SO.

I am sure you will just have to replace the oven igniter (glow bar) These will crack and not let any power through the oven valve.

Oven does not start


Your glow bar igniter is probably burnt out. If you don't smell gas when turning it on that is OK since the glow bar igniters have a built in safety not allowing the gas to open without ignition. I bought a replacement igniter off ebay and wired it myself. Medium to easy handyman fix. Cost was less then $20 off ebay, but would have been $85+ elsewhere.

GE gas oven--Spectra--the oven does not heat--the broiler works, however


Most common problem is the glow bar ignitor. Lift off the bottom panel of the oven and remove. (Some have two screws holding the panel at the back of the panel.) Turn the oven on and see if the glow bar glows.
Even if the glow bar glows doesn't mean that it is working 100%. An amp probe is need to see if the glow bar is drawing the proper amperage to allow the gas valve to open allowing gas to come to the burner. The glow bar should draw about 3.5 to3.8 amps. If drawing more or less than this, replace the glow bar ignitor.
I hope this helps.

The oven burner will not ignite.


Because the glowbar is glowing does not necessarily make it good.
Turn off the gas to the stove. Remove the oven racks. Remove the bottom oven pan. Remove the flame spreader. This gives you access to the glow bar and gas valve.
Put a clamp on amp meter around one wire of the glowbar. Turn the oven control on to BAKE.
If the glowbar reads 3 amps or less,replace the glowbar ignitor.
If the glowbar reads good,check the burner tube for a white ash buildup. It can be cleaned with a wire brush. Look closely near the glowbar section of the burner.
Check all the wire connections for the gas valve.
If the glowbar is good and the ash deposits are gone and the oven still will not ignite,the next step is to replace the gas safety valve.

Kenmore gas oven 362.7163191 wont light, what could be the problem ?


The glow bar ignitor in the oven is going bad. Remove the oven racks. Remove the base pan in the oven. This gives you access to the glow bar.
Turn the gas off to the oven. Place a clamp on amp meter on one wire of the ignitor and turn the oven on to Bake. If the amp draw is 3.2 or less,replace the glow bar ignitor.

Hotpoint oven glowbar not working


My oven glowbar stopped working christmas morning. Yesterday we bought a whirlpool brand (igntr-oven #4342528) because it is twenty something dollars cheaper then GE. My husband installed it today. The only difference is you have to splice the wires (it comes with everthing you need) The first time he put it in it did not work because he had the wires backwards. He switched the wires and now its working fine.
My oven is two years old also.

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)

Electric starter gas oven model jgrp17 won't heat


more than likely your glow bar ignitor has stopped working or at least pulling enough amps to open the safety valve. The floor of the ovens come out may have a couple screws toward the back. take the floor out if a diffuser is on top of the burner remove it. the glow bar ignitor is mounted on the burner turn the oven on and watch it should glow bright red and in about 30 secs open the gas safety valve. If it does not glow you may want to verify power to the ignitor, more than likely the ignitor is the problem. If it glows but does not open the safety valev still replace the ignitor not pulling the required amps to open the safety valve. just put a little dish soap on the screws to the ignitor to help from srtripping them out
