Question about Hotpoint RGB745 Gas Kitchen Range
When I turn on the oven, the display goes to PrE (preheat mode) but the oven does not heat up. The ceramic igniters are cold, there is no smell or sound of gas. I hear a relay click in the control panel when I press Start. It is also dead in Broil mode: no gas, cold igniter. The range top works properly, so there is gas and electric. I could not find a schematic. Thank you in advance for your help.
Even if the ingitor glows, and the oven wont lite, the odds are that the ingitor is bad. it must draw 3.2 amps to open the gas valve. the only way to test the ignitor is with an amp probe. replacing the ingnitor is about 90% a sure thing.

When i had the problem it was corrected by cleaning the connection on the gas solnoid in the back of the warming drawer

Mine does the same... There was smoke for a bit coming from the range for a bit and the breaker tripped. I removed the control panel and lifted the relay daughter board and seen where the burnt component is. I'm ordering a new control panel today.
