The top gas grills work but the oven will not turn on. There is no smell of gas when the oven or Broiler is turned on and light on the top of the oven is on. When inspecting the ignitor it does not glow. I would think at least there would be a smell of gas. Does this seam like i need to replace the ignotor or is this a bigger electrical problem.
After pricing the 2 ignitors and a dual saftey valve (could be all) the best price for all is around $225.or more. Doing the labor myself. Im going to just buy another stove. And I think Ill get one with a pilot light(cheaper to fix) and no self cleaning(dont use much anyway if you are carefull with spills. Price? about $270-370. free del.. and haul off. ibojuan40

Check for volts to the new ignitor. The ignitor draws current which opens the gas valve. If it is not glowing it is not drawing power. Test the ignitor,disconnected, with an ohm meter, it should be under 200 ohms.
Unplug the unit, change the igniter maybe it does not draw enough ampage.
or check the gas control knob if somebody mistakenly turned it to off position. the ON position should be inline with the gas pipe.
there is some adjustment in the switch to control it but according to ur problem the switch is weak though if u adjust the switch it will work properly only for few days or few months instead u can change a new switch to fix the problem permanently
