Oven burner delays too much to light

On this model the oven burner should light in 50 to 60 seconds, but my oven takes more than half an hour to ligths, and sometimes the pressure of the flames are to low. I can not figure out where is the problem

  • gilberto zanolla Aug 03, 2007

    I´m very glad with the solutions presented by the experts. Since the broiler function is working perfectly, and it operates the same way the bake function, The problem fall only to the bake igniters. They are problem weak, as the experts said. Other indication is that my oven is 5 years old, so it´s problem time to replace it. Thanks for your time.

    thanks for yout time, as I said above, I consider the problem solved!

Zanes, Your oven igniter is getting weak. The glowing bar next to the manifold must draw between 2.7 and 3.3 amps before the safety valve will acknowledge that it's actually hot enough to ignite gas and open up. Your igniter is most likely right at ~2.5 amps and the valve is "wanting" to open, but won't without some persuasion (hammer anyone?). The part number for your igniter is 9753108 and is available. Your local appliance parts house may not carry it, but there is a substitute that they WILL carry. Its' part number is WB2x9998. It's a universal flat igniter. Unplug the oven before repairing it, OK?

You probably have a bad igniter. Even though the igniter may still be glowing, it has probably gotten to the point where it does not draw enough current. In simple terms this is how it's suppsed to work: 1. Turn on oven. 2. Igniter begins to glow. 3. Once igniter reaches a potential of .27 to .32 amps of current, the gas valve opens. 4. Once gas valve opens, you have flames. It is common for glow igniters to become weak with age. Since your oven IS lighting (but, takes a long time), I suspect everything else is working properly. I think replacing the igniter will solve your problem. I hope this helps you.

Oven will not light

Go to partselect.com and look for a ignitor.
When on this site... you will be asked to put in you model # which you will find in the drawer below oven.
This is a very simple project which should be about half hour to replace.
No electrical to turn off, no gas to turn off. Just a screwdriver, and the job is finished

Ka gas range the glow bar comes on but it takes sometimes 15 to 20 min before gas is supplied to burner in oven and finaly ignites

Hi, this sounds like a weak igniter, it would have to be a gas oven and the symptoms usually are: takes longer than normal to ignite the burner, may or may not smell gas in the oven, if it does light the burner, there may be delayed ignition (pop), does not maintain set temperature or burner does not come on fully, eventually won't heat at all. On gas ovens, a glo igniter is like a light bulb, the more you cook, the faster it wears out. Bottom line, needs to be replaced. Good luck.

Oven not cooking at correct temperature & loses heat

Had a similar issue - but my unit is eight years old. Turns out my issues were my oven ignitors were failing and one of the burners had corroded causing the flame to only light on one side. To fix I replaced two ignitors (apparently they are to be replaced every 3-5 years) and cleaned the burner with a brass wire brush. If you are handy the ignitors are easy to replace - one screw and two wires each. Burner was one screw to remove.

Ceramic ignitors if wearing out can cause delayed lighting of the oven burners and/or reduce the gas flow - hence not heating up.

That was my experience ....

Delay in oven burner to light after pilot is lit.

Usually delayed lighting on a standing pilot system is caused by a gas pathway that is dirty from spilled food or grease. If you can remove the burner assembly and clean it that will correct the problem. If there is a removable plate above it then you can remove that and get access instead of removing it. Pilot ignitions work by creating a column of gas between the pilot and the burner that is established when the burner is turned on kind of like a fuse. A small tube my be used to establish the column of gas between burner and pilot and it may get blocked with food that overflows. Sometimes the pilot is just located right next to the burner and may get partially blocked or the orifice in the burner next to the pilot may be blocked. Cleaning all this helps. Be very careful with gas. Work in a well ventilated area. Turn on gas very briefly to run an ignition test. Turn off the gas and vent it off if it fails to light in about 5 seconds. Unburned propane drops to the floor and collects. Natural gas rises. Be aware of this when you ventilate.

Oben takes half an hour to heat up

I doubt its the igniter. It could be a faulty gas valve or maybe the orifice is blocked, and not letting enough gas into the burner
