Igniter works but it takes few minitues to light up the burner. Some time smell gas and cause and a loud boom when burner comes on.
Your support is highly appreciated.
Answer Hello Louis. Test for 3.2-3.6 volts AC at the gas safety valve with the igniter turned on. If the voltage is there, you have a bad safety valve. If the voltage is low, you have a weak igniter and the igniter will need to be replaced. You can test this with a multi-meter TJMA-DMT3. Here is a link on how to use a multi-meter. http://forum.appliancepartspros.com/oven-repair-including-ranges-cooktops/4810-how-check-continuity-ohmmeter.html
The top range works great. The oven and broiler will not turn on. I think it might be the ignitor. I try to preheat the oven but it never gets hot. I also don't smell gas. It just stays on preheat. Also is the part number for the ignitor 316428500.
Answer Hello Melissa,
You can test the ignitor by doing an amp draw on the ignitor. Ignitor should draw 2.9 amps to open the safety valve. If you do not have 2.9 on the amp draw then the ignitor 316489400 would need to be replaced. If the ignitor checks out ok then you will need to replace the safety valve 316404900.
Oven takes a long time to heat to temp. Smell gas while heating.
Answer Hello Millie. Based on the information you provided, check and make sure the flame is blue and no yellow. If it is true blue and looks good, replace the igniter, it is weak. If there is alot of yellow in the flame, replace the gas valve on the unit.
When I start oven I smell gas, but oven does not get hot. It does heat somewhat though.

I'm pretty sure my ignitor is the problem. My range works, my broiler works, but not the oven. The ignitor does NOT glow red. Gas, however, does not seem to be flowing. The gas only flows after the ignitor warms up enough, right? How can I be positive the ignitor is the issue and needs to be replaced?
Answer Hello Greg,
Check for 120Vac across the ignitor terminals while it is in the bake mode. If there is no voltage, you have a problem in the control 316557107 that sends the voltage to the ignitor. If voltage is there, the ignitor 316489400 is probably open. The ignitor has to pull 3.2 to 3.6 amps of current to open the safety valve.
Seems I have the same problem as Byron. Ignitor glows, but oven won"t light. I do smell gas and if I bang around on the bottom of the oven I can get it to light up. Is there a way to test the ignitor?
Answer Hello Eddie! A way to verify that the ignitor is weak is to look at it, it should glow a bright white. A dull orangish color indicates that it is defective. You banging on the unit activates the ignitor. Try replacing that first. Your part number is 316489400. Thanks!
I replaced de oven igniter, but the oven dont work. The broiler igniter dont work.
Answer Hello Mario. If there is no power to the oven or broiler igniter, you will need to replace the clock assembly 316557101. Hope this helps.
