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

I have a hotpoint stove and the burner in the oven won't come on, the heat element lights up but the burner won't light whats wrong with my oven? susan


Even though your igniter is lighting up it probably needs replaced. They become weak and wont pull enough amps to open the gas valve.

My hotpoint oven wont work!


It's possible that yourt-stat went out right after you turned the oven back on today. If neither your bake and broil elements will not come on, it's the t-stat control. We have parts for Hotpoint Ovens, so call us and we'll be sure to get the correct part out to you asap. We hope this solves your problem and we look forward to working with you.
