Hello, I have a Caloric Heritage Series oven. The stove works fine but the oven is not working right. When I try to heat up the oven, nothing happens. I can hear the gas come on but nothing ignites. I noticed the igniter or filament lights up. ( Not sure what that part is called ) The oven never heats up to cook anything. Can you please point me in the right direction?
ANSWER Dwayne, Apparently you may have a "glow Bar" igniter 12400035. If this is the case, you will need to get access to a "clamp on" ammeter. You will need to clamp around one of the igniter wires, turn the oven on, and check for 3.2 to 3.6 amps being drawn on the circuit, while the igniter is glowing. If the amp draw does not reach the required amount in 60 seconds, replace the glow bar igniter.
