The oven is not heating up, its not even turning on. there's no gas or fire. the stovetop is working. what can be the problem.


Since you didn't include the model number, I cannot check for you to find what type igniter the oven uses but if neither broiler nor oven will turn on, it is probably one that uses an electrical spark that isn't happening. If the broiler works, it is a 'surface' igniter and the one servicing the oven has failed. There is no gas because the flow is blocked if no ignition is occurring. This is an important safety feature otherwise the oven would just fill with unburnt gas and finally explode.

The oven will not light and is throwing a breaker. Is this something fixable? It has been slow to light for a while now, and we usually have to turn on one of the stovetop burners in order to get the oven...


can you access the ignition module,if so try using one of the connections from the module that ignites a stove top burner and see if this line connected to the oven lights the oven now and doesn't throw the breaker,then you would know that section of the module is defective

Oven won't light. Broiler will ignite and


I don't know how new or what brand your oven is, but chances are you have a bad igniter the bottom burner. It is a small element attached to the burner that should glow red hot when you turn your oven on to ignite the gas. This is the most commment setup and problem. You will have to remove the bottom tray (there are usully 2 finger screws holding it in) to see it. It should look something like this:

If you turn the oven on and nothing happens, turn it back off. You can disconnect the igniter, connect a multimeter set to volts AC, turn back on and check for voltage (120 AC) Don't let any bare wire ends touch the oven or you. If you have power there, its the igniter.

Just get the model number off your oven to look up the proper replacement. Replaces with 2 screws. Make sure it mounts close to the burner. It should only take a couple seconds after you hear the gas turn on to ignite. Hope this helps.

Oven won't light.


Localwonder gave a more comprehensive answer, but I wanted to share my recent related experience too:
Same model: MGR5750BDW
Oven was not heating up, or would sometimes and not others. Broiler worked fine. The nice thing is that the broiler igniter and the oven igniter are the same part. So I swapped them until I could get a replacement part.
Before I did anything, I turned off the gas!
To take out the broiler igniter: there's one screw right near the front of the oven that holds the burner assembly in place. Remove that, gently pull the assembly off the gas nozzle off to the left. Then where the wires from the igniter go into the back wall, remove the screw that holds the little door, remove that little door, and then gently pull the wires through until the connector comes through the opening. I also found you can go behind the stove, remove the back panel (which is easy) and see the igniter's connector.
The oven one: remove the floor of the oven by lifting it at the back, and then lift it out towards the back of the oven. Then you can see the igniter at the back of the floor of the oven. remove the two mounting screws, and then gently pull the wires until the connector comes through the insulation.
The bad igniter looked like it had burned down to bare metal in a big patch...not sure if that's the actual problem, but in any event, I installed the good igniter in the bottom (gently pushing the reconnected connector through the insulation, and feeding as much of the wires down in there as well), and the bad igniter in the broiler position (since that was the easiest one to access and replace, it'll be easy enough to replace when I get the parts). Tested, and everything worked great. And I could watch the bad igniter light up, and never light, confirming that it was the igniter itself that was the problem.
The best part, for this stove anyway, -- the ONLY tool needed was a #2 phillips screwdriver. Really. All told, maybe an hour of work, nothing intense. And free -- so if they both worked, it would have spared me ordering a part that didn't need to be replaced!

WHY WON'T MY OVEN HEAT UP?


Most modern gas ovens and many broilers use a "glow-bar" style of igniter that glows red-hot to ignite the gas. If the igniter doesn't reach the proper temperature, the gas valve won't open. You may need to replace the igniter.
