I replace the gas valve. The oven will not light.
Answer Hello Jim. If the igniter is glowing, and the gas is on, you will need to replace the igniter. It is weak.
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.
