Oven failing to light

The oven igniter is not coming on nor is gas to the oven. When the oven is turned on only 2 volts is registering on my volt meter. What is most likely the problem? I would suspect that when the oven is turned on there should be 120 volts activating the gas valve and igniter.

The ignitor needs at least 3.2 amps current flow to heat the bi metal in the gas  control valve enough to allow the gas to flow. cold ignitor (red) will not flow enough current, when ignightor gets yellow resistance drops enogh to allow bi metal to heat and allow gas valve to flow and ignight gas. most likely your ignitor is shot

Tappan 32-1272-10/07056-8509-4080 gas range/oven pilot light works,main oven burner won't come on

You will need to look and see if the igniter is glowing a bright red. If it is weak, the oven will not light. Here is the igniter if you need to order it.

Also check and make sure your getting 3.2-3.6 volts AC to the valve.

Oven will not ignite

Hello,
On your oven have you been able to look and see the if the igniter in the oven glows yet their is no flame? the leading cause of a gas oven not heating by far is a weak or cracked igniter. If you have multimeter you could check for 120 volts ac at the 2 wires the igniter plugs into,if their is 120 volts ac present at the igniter,its going to be the problem. If 120vac not present at valve when oven set,the oven gas valve then the control are they cause..firstly check the gas valve for continuty if 120vac not at igniter, if has contunuty and 120vac not at igniter,then the control will be the problem.But first check igniter its bad 100 times for every valve or control.

I have a Kenmore Gas Wall Oven Model Number 911.30469894. When BAKE is selected, temperature shows 100 degrees and the oven never starts up or gets hot. BROIL works fine. Thank you, John

The oven control supplies voltage to the oven igniter/gas valve circuit. When the oven control is set to Bake, voltage is supplied to the oven igniter which should glow bright red to almost white hot. Once the igniter comes on and begins to glow it must pull enough current to cause the gas valve to open so the burner can ignite from the igniter. I added an image below with the theory of operation. Click this link:--http://media.fotki.com/1_p,swbbsqrsgstsqkkxgtqsskgwtqkq,vi/wrgtsbrktxwdfwfbgdg/1/1303472/5961857/image5576034710104836299img-or.png

----Open the broiler drawer and then set the oven control to bake and watch to see if the glow bar igniter glows or not. If it does not glow, the failure could be a broken Igniter, failed oven control board or gas valve. If the igniter is glowing red, then it can be possible that gas valve is faulty. To see how igniter looks. See the fig below:--

Also to confirm, check to see if the igniter is getting 120 volts when it's turned on. If it gets 120 volts, then your safety gas valve is bad because it's not letting the neutral go through. Otherwise, if it's NOT getting 120 volts, your control board shorted out and you need a new control board.
But as you mentioned that control board is replaced. So igniter should get 120 volts. If valve is faulty. But if igniter is not glowing then its faulty igniter confirmed.

In most of the cases the igniter is faulty, because gas valve getting faulty is very rare. But still getting the voltages checked, will confirm. These will help. Thanks. Helpmech.

Hi,
Believe it or not the problem is with the ignitor. This tip will help to explain it more fully.

If my oven will not heat and I cannot hear any gas coming into the oven, how can I be sure if my ignitor is the problem?

You have to check voltage being delivered to the oven gas valve while the thermostat is calling for heat. A volt/ohm meter is the tool for this. If you get less than 3 volts AC to the valve, the igniter is bad.

Oven won't light. Broiler will ignite and

I don't know how new or what brand your oven is, but chances are you have a bad igniter the bottom burner. It is a small element attached to the burner that should glow red hot when you turn your oven on to ignite the gas. This is the most commment setup and problem. You will have to remove the bottom tray (there are usully 2 finger screws holding it in) to see it. It should look something like this:
http://www.theignitorstore.com/product/306602/range_oven_igniters

If you turn the oven on and nothing happens, turn it back off. You can disconnect the igniter, connect a multimeter set to volts AC, turn back on and check for voltage (120 AC) Don't let any bare wire ends touch the oven or you. If you have power there, its the igniter.

Just get the model number off your oven to look up the proper replacement. Replaces with 2 screws. Make sure it mounts close to the burner. It should only take a couple seconds after you hear the gas turn on to ignite. Hope this helps.

The oven doesn't work ,the ignator doesn't light up. no gas coming

The technical jargon is,.....:
In order for your gas oven to work this is what has to happen: 1. when you turn on the oven, the range sends 120 volts to the glow bar igniter. 2. as the igniter heats up (and starts to glow) it starts using more electricity. 3. when the electric use reaches a set amount (say 3.2 amps) the range knows the glow bar igniter is hot enough to ignite the gas, so it then releases gas through the gas safety valve. 4. when the thermostat tells the oven controller that the temperature has been reached, the control cuts power to the igniter, cutting the amp draw down, causing the safety gas valve to close. 5. process repeats to hold oven temp until you turn off oven.

So,..........the solution is:
most likely your oven igniter burnt out. Find your model number, usually on the range frame just behind the lower drawer or broiler drawer (depending on if it is a self clean gas range or not) and order the correct igniter and replace it.

GE Oven does not light - no gas smell and no electronic ignition clicking sound

It probably needs an oven igniter. Remove oven racks. Remove oven floor. Usually 2 screws towards back. Remove flame spreader if it has one. You can see long tube with holes in sides and igniter with 2 wires from rear. Now try oven. See if igniter glows. If it does but doesn't light within 1 minute, replace igniter.
If it doesn't glow, you need to check for power to igniter. Should be about 100 volts. If not may need ERC, "Electronic Range Control".

I suspect you may have a bad igniter. They will still glow nice and hot, but if they are weak the gas valve will not open. This is actually a safety feature. Depending on which type you have, the glow bar igniter is supposed to draw a certain current potential before the gas valve will open. Here's the current readings for both types: Round Glow Bar: 2.7 to 3.2 amps Square Glow Bar: 3.2 to 3.7 amps I would try to to determine if the igniter is good or bad before proceeding with a gas valve replacement. Generally, the igniter is a common fail item. Let me know if this helps.
