Hello, to change the ignitor turn off power and gas to the furnace, then unplug it from the molex connector or wire connectors. Then remove screw and take out igniter. When putting in the new ignitor be careful not to touch the carbide part with you fingers as it can shorten the life of the igniter. Then screw new igniter back into place and reconnect wiring, after that turn power and gas back on to the unit.

Model KGRT607HBS oven does not reach heat, and there is a smell like something is burning or charred, but no smoke.


Weak Ignitor is my first gut feeling. I appreciate yall including the model number. The link I posted is to your ignitor. The ignitor changes in resistance as it gets hotter. This change in resistance is needed toopen the safety valve. Yall might think the ignitor is fine because yall can see it working. But if it is weak it won't cut it! Replace that puppy and party on.

Furance blower works, ignitor come on for a short time we hear a click ignitor goes out blower runs for a short time ignitor come again but gas not coming on. What is wrong.


The ignitor needs to get up to a predetermined temperature prior to opening up the gas valve, you could have a weak ignitor. You need to see if the PC board is sending 24 volts to gas valve. If it is but no gas, bad gas valve. If not, bad ignitor or bad PC board. I would change out the ignitor first since it is a wear item as well as the cheapest component.

My oven is very slow to heat up now. It takes an hour or more to heat to temp.


you need to change out the bake ignitor.when the ignitor is breaking down this is what happens,it takes longer and longer for it to ignite the flame and i've seen some ignitors burn a hole in the tub,change out the ignitor and you'll be all set,part number 74007498.

Oven won't ignite


most likely you have a bad ignitor.take out the racks and remove the floor,you'll see the ignitor,turn on the bake,the ignitor should glow and the flame should lite within 40 seconds,if it doesn't change out the ignitor,even if it glows that doesn't mean the ignitor is still good change it out.let me know what you find and next time send model number

Ignitor will not glow


IF MOTOR RUNIN AND NOT HEAT YOU NEED CHEK:

1-THERMAL FUSE.
2-SENSOR FLAME.
3-IGNITOR.
4-GAS VALVE.

IN THIS ORDER.

Gas broiler won't light


jumptrout51 is correct with the the round ignitor. Using a clamp on digital ampmeter, you should see the amperage use go from zero to at least 2.5 amps after you turn on the broil, then gas valve should open. (the flat ignitors actually require at least a 3.2 amp minimum) Very unlikely the electronic control has anything to do with your problem. Low voltage is not real likely if the oven ignitor is working. Most likely you have a bad ignitor or a poor electrical connection.

There is no heat being produced


HI, Remove the front lower panel. Start the dryer and see if the ignitor glows. If it glows but the gas valve does not open, Change the coils on top of the gas valve.
If the ignitor does not glow, test the ignitor for 120V. If there is voltage to the ignitor but no glow, change the ignitor.
If there is no viltage to the ignitor, check continuity on the thermostats and the fuse that are located on the blower housing. Also test the sensor located on the burner.
I hope this helps. Please let me know if I can assist you further.

Dynasty oven fails to get enough gas to light.


I think you are talking about the oven safety valve or thermal valve. before you change you oven safety valve, I would check the Amperage on the oven ignitor first, install AMP meter on one of the ignitor wire, it should draw above 3AMPs, if not then you have problem with the oven ignitor and not the safety valve. we hardly change the safety valve, I'll try to change the ignitor first. Have fun.
