The oven and the broiler will not ignite or heat. I do not smell any gas. The top gas burners work fine. The oven and broiler temperature control display seems to be working. When I turn on the oven or the broiler, I hear a click like it wants to engage. The oven light works. Any advice would be much apprecitated.
Answer Hello Bill,
If the ignitor 5303935066 is glowing, it should be practically white hot. Red and Orange isn't hot enough. You see, the ignitor has to heat up to the point that the resistance is high enough in the circuit to increase current flow to between 3.2 and 3.6 amps. This is the current flow required to open the gas valve. If the ignitor is doing this properly, the issue will have to be a defective safety valve 3203459.
My oven will not come on. The ignitor is glowing and sensor ohms out at 1100 ohms.
Answer Hello Richard,
The most common failure is the ignitor 316489400. It's hard to tell for sure without a clamp on ampmeter TJCL1100, but the ignitor needs to turn almost white hot to open the safety valve and ignite. Orange isn't quite hot enough. The ignitor should pull between 3.2 to 3.6 amps of current to open the valve properly. Of course you should make sure gas is available to the unit. If the surface burners work, this is verification enough.
