Either the circuit to the electronic ignitor is bad or the ignitor (electrode) itself has failed. Either are not difficult to replace, but you will need a circuit tester to troubleshoot which part(s) needs replacing.

Why isn't stove relighting?


The oven burner igniter
commonly known as the hot surface igniter is used in modern gas oven burners to open the gas valve and to ignite the gas. As the igniter draws electric current it will heat to a high temperature and glow, as well as cause the bi-metal in the oven safety valve to warp and open the valve releasing the gas to be ignited. This sequence normally takes about a minute. Igniters come in both flat and round styles and are very fragile. If the burner does not light then you should check the igniter first. If the igniter does not glow at all, then check for power to the circuit. This is a live voltage check and should be performed by a qualified person. If power is present then the igniter may be open circuit and can be checked for continuity with a multi-meter. If the igniter is glowing, but the burner is not lighting, the igniter may be weak and still be at fault because it requires a certain amount of current draw to open the valve. This check requires the use of an amp meter and should be performed by a qualified person. If the igniter is defective then it must be replaced.

The oven safety valve
(also called the gas valve) is the part that ensures that gas is not released until the igniter has reached the correct temperature needed to ignite the gas. While this part can fail, it is uncommon. If the hot surface igniter does not glow you should first verify that you have voltage to the circuit. This is a live voltage check and should be performed by a qualified person. If voltage is lost at the valve terminals then you should verify the continuity of the bi-metal in the valve using a multi-meter.

Hello, sometimes even though the igniter is glowing it can be weak and not able to ignite the gas. Also, since the gas valve is clicking that means that it is receiving 24 volts but it is also possible that gas valve is sticking and not allowing gas to flow to tne buners everytime.

get in a gas fitter to properly diagnose the problem,
igniters in ovens normally click / flash as that ignites gas quicker than a hot wire so I suspect that is problem 1
problem 2 indicates that there is a gas flow problem, probably a faulty hose or regulator
what ever it is , gas is not in the domain of diy so an accredited professional gas fitter is required to do the fix

Check to see if you get 24 volts AC at the gas valve from the circuit board when the igniter is glowing. If yes, bad gas valve or blockage in gas train. If no, bad circuit board or broken wire

Gas Dryer. Heat for only one burn cycle.


Try vacuuming out the intake and exhaust of the burner to remove any lint or other debris. If no help, the main burner may need to be replaced.

Have a rheem criterion II. Model


The way it lights is that the gas is spread from one burner to the next by either a flame tray or small holes drilled in the burner tubes. If the flame does not get all the way across the burner tubes within a few seconds, the unit goes out on failure. Clean and inspect each burner tube, not just the orifice. Clean any tray that connects the burners. You can use a small wire brush or tooth brush but be careful near the glow igniter as it is very fragile.

Kenmore gas dryer mod.110-73942. burner comes on as normal. After 5-10 minutes running Cycles off, igniter ( new) glows but no burner ign. Also replaced the sensor adjacent the igniter.


The gas valve coil is bad. When the ignitor is glowing the gas valve should open and allow gas in to be ignited. Change the gas valve.

GMT 115-5B wont ignite


couple things without more info is little hard,,,first not familliar with this paticular model but I believe it has a glo igniter,,which will be located next to the burners,,should be one or two scres holding it in,if this is not glowing than u need to pulll it out and look for a crack in it if its cracked u need to replace. If this is electronic ignition will have a metal spark ignition,,the glow ignitor will be ceramic by the way,,also if u pull out the glow ignitor do not touch the element with your hands while inspecting or replacing for the oil on your hands will cause it to fail sooner. sorry back to the metal spark ignition if it is not sparking than chances are u have a problem with the combustion fan motor shutting down the gas valve before it lights. I just posted on a goodman about the fan motor and the two types and how to fix. good luck.

Explosive Ignition


Check the alignment of the igniter to burner. It should be in the flame of the burner but to one side or just below. Does the igniter glow about 15 seconds prior to the gas valve opening or just a second or two. The igniter should glow 10-15 seconds prior. If the temperatures outside are unseasonably cold, you could be experiencing a gas regulator condition. If so, as the temperature rises, the condition would lessen. Call your gas company to get the regulator tested and gas pressure checked.
