Question about Hotpoint RGB745 Gas Kitchen Range
From MNTECH, "If your oven would light sometimes, but usually not, or take a very long time to ignite, then replace the oven igniter. Even though it probably is glowing, it needs to draw a specific minimum electrical current (in amps) for the gas safety valve to open and release the gas. Also low voltage can affect how many amps the igniter draws, so that may be a factor, but not as often."
I live in Japan. I got a brand new range in june and it has had this problem for four month. The igniter glows but the gas never (or rarely) releases. Often it would preheat but not maintain the temp while baking. **augh** After reading MNTECH's solution I got a transformer and plugged my range into it to change the voltage (100 to 110) and I haven't had a problem since. THANK YOU MNTECH FOR POSTING THIS SOLUTION
