    I have gas to the top Burners and they work fine all four of them. So I know I'm getting gas to the stove. I have 110v power to the back of the stove where the cover is that houses the back of the oven light and wires that go to the bottom of the oven. What about the Clock & timer would that have anything to do with the igniter not working ?

    Hi arjuun,
    Thanks for getting back to me so fast. The Glow Bar igniter is not Glowing. I do have a meter and I checked the thermosta and have 110 volts going in and coming out when tuned on. But I don't seem to have that at the Glow Bar. I will check the continuity of the units and get back to you. The only thing is that the stove is at my summer home so i will check it this weekend coming up.

    Thank you so much.
    Glenn
    P.S. Will the Clock & timer have any em-pack on the stove to turn on or is it just a timer that makes alot of noise.

    Thank you for your help. I will try that this weekend.
    Thanks again
    Glenn

Hello,
You did not indicate if your see the glow bar igniter glowing red or not. Open the broiler drawer and turn the oven on and watch to see if you find the glow bar igniter glowing or not. If you find it glowing but the burner never ignites, replace the igniter. If the glow bar igniter does not glow, then the failure could be one of the following: Broken or burnt out igniter (part #WB13K21) Failed safety gas valve Oven thermostat Loose or broken wire in the ignition circuit.
In order to diagnose the failure if you find the oven igniter not glowing will require a multimeter. The igniter can be accessed by opening the broiler drawer or by removing the floor of the oven if it's removable. First, disconnect the power cord from the power source. The igniter will need to be disconnect and checked for continuity. If the igniter has continuity then disconnect the wires from the gas valve and check the continuity of it. If the igniter and the safety gas valve both measure continuity then the oven thermostat will need to be check for continuity when it is turned on. Remove both wires from the thermostat and check the continuity across the two terminals of the thermostat. If it has continuity then you will need to check the wire circuit between the thermostat and igniter and gas valve for an open circuit. The ignitor must have voltage supplied to it or it will not glow and allow the gas valve to open.
Thanks

Hello, welcome to FixYa. I'm not sure if you are aware of it, but those old gas ranges (this being 1979 would certainly qualify) if inadvertently set to "auto-bake" on the clock timer will not work...unless it happens to be the exact time the "auto-bake" is set to.

Turn the dial on the timer/clock which indicates "auto-bake" to manual or off and give that a try. If the ignitor isn't even getting voltage it must be in the clock.

I don't have access to a diagram of your range, but it certainly sounds like it is timer related based on your post..."I do have Power at the oven controller on top of stove"...yet no power to the ignitor.

Let me know what you find and I hope that helps. I'll watch for a reply and help in any manner I can going forward of course.Good luck.

Regards,

Macmarkus :)

    Hello again Glen,

    Thanks for replying, the time table is of no consequence so no need to apologize. Out of curiosity though, what ended up being the solution to the non-ignition problem ?

    I just like to follow up on any prior post of course for future reference, if it was the clock/timer for example (or whatever it was) that is good info to refer to if need be for similar models and problems.

    Thanks again for choosing FixYa for your inquiry. Good luck going forward.

    Regards,

    Macmarkus :)

Good day!

Try to check the connection of regulator going to the stove.
When you already replaced the new igniter and not working so it means that there's no power/gas going to the stove.
Please check the following:

  1. the tank-if have a gas.
  2. the regulator--if the gas is pass through.
  3. check the proper connection of the hose.
  4. the gas stove and barner.

Thank you.

You need a new glo-plug. They still glow when they go bad but not enough to ignite the burner. It's a fairly easy DIY project.

I have a Hotpoint gas range that has electric ignition for the oven. However, I don't have electric at my cabin. Is there a conversion kit for a straight pilot ignition available? The model number is...


Most gas ranges with electronic ignition aren't equipped to have a straight pilot ignition.
I'm don't even think they make conversion kit because of the routing of the gas tubing for the pilot source.

Usually you have to turn the gas knob way over to get the "click-click-click" of the igniter.
Its just as easy to turn on the gas and light with a match...or a long butane lighter.
Even a "striker" used in welding will provide a source of ignition.
A last ditch effort would be to get a replacement gas grill igniter...all ya gotta do is place the bottom of igniter on metal surface and press red button. (kinda works like a spark plug) and no A/C needed.

Hope this helps some.

I cannot find the model number either, however, if you look on the enclosure into which the control board fits, there will be a label with a number beginning with 316 or 318.

Kenmore Gas Range/Freestanding/ Electronic Ignition


I have an electronic ignition Kenmore Gas Range. The Model Number is 790.78573407.

Am getting the error code F93 in the oven control panel. The manual says the likely cause is "Maximum oven door lock time exceeded". When I plug the oven the "door lock light" flashes and then the "F93" error code flashes. Am not able to use the bake or broil.
