    I have a ES330 Gas range (using LP) and the lower oven burner has stopped working. I removed the pan and see the heating element work fine, but no gas seems to be coming through the ventilation pipe. The stove burners and the "upper over" broiler work, so it seems specific to the LP feed / orifice to the lower burner??? Help Please :) Thx, David dbirinde@csc.com *This gas range is 3 yrs old

This could be a defective ignitor (glow bar) or gas valve (safety valve). If you gently tap the safety valve and it lights up very likely ingnitor problem

Our MAGIC CHEF gas range has a pilot light that comes on, the ignitor comes on, but the oven does not work heat. Any ideas would be appreciated.


First off, decide which you have, a pilot lite or an igniter coil. In electronic controlled units, when the oven won't light, as long as there's gas available, 98% of the time the igniter is bad, even though the old one may glow and seem to be very bright, it could have a small hairline crack in the ceramic, which would not allow the proper amount of electrical current to travel to the gas oven safety valve, which would then make it open and release the gas. A new igniter works almost every time.

Our GE profile oven model JGsp31wet1ww oven will not heat up. When i set the oven to say 400 degrees, it just stays at 100 and never heats up. The broiler seems to work fine and the stove top gas burners...


pull out the racks and remove the bottom floor of the oven,turn it on bake,if the ignitor doesn't glow most likely it's bad,if it does glow and it doesn't ignite within 40 to 60 seconds the ignitor is bad.even though it glows doesn't mean it's good,it works by amps.it takes 3.2 amps.for a flat ignitor to open the gas valve and 2.5 amps for a round ignitor to open the gas valve.

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 will not ignite while glow ignitor is on...


The ignitor has to draw enough current to open the gas valve. The cheapest way is to just replace the ignitor and that will fix it 9 out of 10 times.
