My glowbar is staying on, is it defective or is this normal? never noticed it before
Answer John B. The oven glow bar will appear to be "partially" energized once the burner ignites. The heat and flame will cause the igniter to have a orange colored glow to it. The heated igniter, will allow the safety valve contact to remain open to release the gas to the burner. When the selected temperature is reached the burner will shut off and the glow bar will dim and the circuit will be "open" until the control calls for heat, again.
What does the igniter work with?
Answer Hello John. The igniter is supplied with 120 volts AC to work. It then opens the gas valve releasing the gas to the burner to light.
The broiler does not light when turned on. I replaced the igniter with part #wb13k21. When I turned it on, the igniter glows but the broiler does does not light,but you can smell gas.
Answer Hello James,
My sources indicate that the ignitor you installed is not a factory recommended replacement part for this model. The one specified for it is WB2X9154. If this doesn't correct the issue, I would replace the burner WB16K10008. The safety valve is working if you can smell the gas and hear a hiss.
