Gas oven doesnt work


Hello there:
Gas oven won't work, Ignitor is glowing Everything in the circuit must have continuity for the oven to fire up. What if the ignitor glows but the oven will still not come on? If the ignitor is glowing that would mean you have a circuit. Solution: Replace the ignitor, even if it comes on. Why? Because 99% of the time the ignitor is weak. When it is working fine it should be so bright you cannot look at it for long. If it is a mellow orange color it is bad, replace it. The only way the gas oven valve would be bad is if it is open and has no continuity. That goes for the control as well. Check out this simple diagram of how a basic gas range operates. glowbar.jpg oven ignitor An ignitor must draw at least 3.5 amps or that safety valve will not open up and release the gas: gas-ignitor-circuit.anim.5.

We have a 6 burner, nat gas cooktop....all unit light but the igniter clicking will not stop...unplugged it . question: all mechanics are closed is this safe gaswise?


What happens in this style ignition system is that the thermostat or electronic control switches power to the oven ignitor and gas valve circuit which are connected in series (one after the other). As power flows through the ignitor it heats and draws current (measured in amperage). Once the oven ignitor draws a specific amount of current the oven valve opens to allow gas to flow to the oven burner where the glowing hot ignitor (glow bar) ignites it. Power must continually flow through the ignitor and oven gas valve for gas to be released into the oven burner to create a flame. Once the set temperature is achieved the control stops all power to the ignition circuit which causes the ignitor to dim and the oven gas valve to close, stopping any burner flame. Cycling on and off continues to maintain the specific temperature the control is set for.

LOOKS LIKE NO GAS TO OVEN. GLOW STICK LIGHTS IS YELLOW-BROILER LIGHTS...GLOW STICK SAME COLOR AS OVEN'S


You need a new thermostat for the oven. It isn't picking up the heat from the ignitor. They're relatively cheap and easy to replace.

Model fgf334bgwj gas range oven will not operate. I removed the oven bottom plate and deflection plate , the glow bar turns on but no gas flows to ignitor? Is it the gas safety valve?


When the ignitor glows brightly and the oven doesn't light it is usually a defective ignitor. The way to know if the ignitor is good or bad is to read the amp draw of the ignitor with an amp or watt meter. The gas valve and the ignitor are wired in series and for the gas valve to draw the current the ignitor has to draw 3.5-3.8 amps.If the ignitor is drawing 3.5-3.8 amps the new gas valve is defective. If it is drawing less amps the ignitor is defective.

Kenmore gas oven won't heat up


If your ignitor is coming on that means the oven control is supplying the power to the ignitor and gas valve. So the gas valve is ok because it is allowing for a complete circuit so what the heck is wrong? The ignitor MUST draw 3.5 amps in order to open the gas safety and allow the gas to come out. The ignitor must be very bright, if it is dim then it is bad. (MORE)

Re:Whirlpool SF310PKE gas range


When the oven safety valve refuses to open and let gas through, it's almost always because not enough current is flowing through the ignitor. Often an aging ignitor will appear to be glowing pretty brightly but still won't draw enough current to make the valve open. The first thing to try replacing is the ignitor.

You describe your ignitor as "red and glowing" but oven ignitors normally get a lot brighter than "red" -- well into what I'd call yellow.

Top oven bake igniter comes on, but gas does not.


Check the voltage on the 2 wires going to the oven gas valve. If you get 120v when the ignitor is on with no gas coming out, you have a bad gas valve. If you get voltage, but it is not much, it is the ignitor. The ignitors don't burn out completely on the ovens, they just get a little dim and no longer ignite the gas and eventually will not turn on the gas valve

Lighting pilot of GE gas stove


According to the model number you supplied it looks like your oven use a glow bar ignitor not a pilot light. In that case there is no place to hold a fire. what happens with these when you turn the oven on 120 volts goes to the ignitor causing it to heat up ,the amp draw across the ignitor causes the gas safety valve to open, and then lights the gas. So if you turn your oven on you should see a bright red glow if not probably the the ignitor, to check it you would have to verify you actually have power going to it. If the ignitor glows but the gas valve does not open you will still need to replace the ignitor has to pull about 3.2 amps across ignitor to open safety valve. Your broil burner works the same way. And most of the ovens the floor of the oven comes out to allow easier acess to the ignitor. also if you have to change the ignitor put just a dab of dish detergent on the screws to help from stripping them

Oven wont start


The control sends voltage down to the ignitor, the ignitor glows red, when and if the ignitor gets hot enough it opens the gas valsve to let gas in which is then lit by the ignitor.

If ignitor glows either the ignitor is bad or the oven valve

If the ignitor does not glow then either the ignitor is broken, the control is not sending voltage down, or the oven valve is bad and not sending voltage to the ignitor.

In most cases it is the ignitor which is the cheapest of the three parts
