Oven wouldn't heat and oven wouldn't light

I took the entire bottom inside of the oven apart except for the gas tube. The first time I did this it lit up, but it was so slow to heat. About 2 weeks later the oven wouldn't even light. I took the bottom out again and turned it on and held a grill lighter next to the gas tube and it was obvious no gas was coming out. I did some reading and found that if the igniter is not pulling enough amps the gas valve will not open, and that would explain why a couple weeks before it took forever to heat up. The igniter was on its last leg then died. So I ordered this part. It came in within 3 days!! Before I began the install I watched a few youtube vids on how to install the lighters and every oven they showed you just had to plug it into the safety valve. Simple enough right. HA!!! Of course I have an oven that Kenmore decided to make difficult. So..... 1) Removed the bottom cover inside the oven 1a) Turn off power to oven 2) Removed the flame spreader 3) Unbolted the old igniter 4) Remove the heating tray (not inside the oven, on the outside at the bottom, just pulled right out) 5) Find 2 wires from the old igniter 5a) My oven had only 1 wire going into the safety valve and another wire going into the power source 6) Cut the wires to the old igniter and remove old igniter 7) Bolt on new igniter and run wires down the hole 8) Cut new igniter wires to desired length (The new igniter length was too long in my opinion) 9) Splice the new igniter to the old wires still inside oven 9a) Top wire to gas valve, bottom wire to power 10) Reinstall all oven parts and hope you didn't drop too many screws :)

My husband is the repair genius. I just stand and watch but he had it fixed pretty quickly. Oven wouldn't work on Wednesday (holiday) when I had a house full of company coming. Had to use the oven in my microwave/oven/ convention/hood. Didn't think I could find a part for an oven that is over 10 years old.Could not believe that I ordered the part at 3 pm on Thursday and it arrived before noon on Friday and my husband had it fixed by 1 pm. You guys are great.

I am a 69 yr. old woman. I carefully removed old ignitor, keeping track of where everything reattached and how to reconnect. Had to strip the wires and reconnect. Very easy. From start to finish, less than 30 mins. Was so proud of myself.

I started by watching a YOUTUBE video that gave me the solution to the problem (Igniter). The instructions that came with the part were fine, but the print was so small I had to use a magnifying glass to read them (Honest). It took about an hour to complete but that included the time I took cleaning the burners and area around the bottom of the over. I turned it on, and it has be working fine. It acually heats up faster than I was used to.

ge gas oven that i've had for over ten years without any problems just stopped heating up even though i could see the igniter glowing red. once i was able to determine or "lucky guess" it was the igniter, i pulled the power plug so i couldn't get zapped. i took out all the drip pans and covers inside the oven to access the igniter. i then proceeded to remove the broiler drawer and disconnect the wires underneath. two screws on the igniter and was able to remove the bad one. now working on my table i cut the wires off the old igniter and spliced them with the supplied wire nuts (x2). i also felt better wrapping them after with electrical tape for my own added security. installed the new igniter and reconnected the slide clips under oven ,put all of the drip pans, etc back in the same way it came out. plugged it back in and double checked all of my connections and made sure there was no gas leaks, and everything worked beautiful. cost me $50 for the part that took only 2 days to get after i ordered, and about a half hr of my time with basic handyman skills. thanks parts select!!!!!!!

Disconnected the electrical supply to the Oven. Removed Oven base heat shield by unscrewing thumb screws in the back of the oven. Removed secondary heat distribution plate from the gas burner by unscrewing two self tapping metal screws on the front of the plate and unscrewing the retaining nut in the center of the plate. Removed two stainless steel retaining screws holding the oven igniter, cut the electrical wires to the igniter removed the fiberglass insulation tubes from the existing wires and placed them on the new igniter wires. Routed the new electrical wires through the access in the bottom of the over where the original wires came from the control circuit. Reconnected the new electrical leads to the previous leads using ceramic wire nuts supplied with the igniter. Reconnected electrical supply and tested oven igniter to ensure it would heat and ignite the gas oven burner. Reassembled the heat distribution plate onto the oven burner. Reassembled the oven base plate. Note: Replaced the oven light during the repair cycle.

Removed cover on back of range (four screws held it in place), removed screws holding the oven sensor in place, pulled out oven sensor and disconnected the snap-like connection, tested with ohm reader (was below 1000 and 1100), ordered new part (came next day), inserted the sensor, screwed it back in, snapped the connectors together, replaced cover on back of stove.

I followed past on-line repair reviews by prior customers, who problems were nearly identical to mine. It was basically an extremly easy repair. Those reviews/notes are great, leading to using partselect as a valuable start source for parts replacement. (I removed the part before ordering for assurance of getting the correct item. )

I called the repairman, and he said parts were no longer available for this appliance. He charged $85.00 for this advice. As soon as he left I looked on the internet and found your site and looked for the part. I found it right away, ordered it, and installed it. It was easy to install and it works great. The repairman candidly told me that new ovens are not near the quality as mine is and that is why I didn't want to buy a new oven. Thank you for providing an alernative to our throw-away society.

Oven Did Not Heat

The oven began to have low heat and then no heat. Read about it on-line and figured it was the igniter for the oven. Found the model number on stove/oven frame behind the bottom draw. Then I looked at a few on-line videos about how to install the piece. I have a convection oven and had to take the fan cover off to remove the bottom inside cover of the stove and I couldn't figure out how to remove the oven door to make it easier...so I had to leave the oven door on the stove. The stove door is heavy so be aware of that issue. Also I needed help...it was a two people operation. I needed to lay the stove on it's back to get to the piece. I needed to cut the wires and remember where everything went it was as simple as the video made it out to be...there were a few more wire connections. There is the issue of the door ...be careful you can stand the stove up and bring it down again but if not be careful/mindful of the door and it's weight and desire to slam closed...maybe a third person would be good to have around. ;) Anyway it can be done. Have patience. Take your time. Have a buddy to help you. Best part...the oven is now heating!! ;) Lovely!
