Product Description

Oven Igniter - Vertical Mount Bake and Broil Specifications

This broil igniter assembly comes with its own metallic mounting bracket and a 7-inch-long dual wire lead with a plastic plug. This part will need to be repaired if your oven element is giving off no heat or very little, or is not heating evenly. You may also notice a smell of gas. The ignitor may still be glowing, but could still have gone bad. You will need a 1/4-inch nut-driver and a 5/16 nut-driver. Open the oven door and pull the door off the hinges to completely remove. Pull out the racks. Using your 1/4-inch nut driver, take out the screws at the bottom rear end of the oven, which will allow you to completely remove the bottom. Unscrew the nuts holding the igniter in place. Remove the igniter with the 5/16 nut driver. You should now have access to remove the old igniter.

Oven has slowly been failing to maintain temperature. It final decided not to come up to temp at all. The piece of metal in the back was glowing like it was hot though. Using a long lighter it did ignite and slowly increase in temp but very slowly. What parts would you suggest. Thanks.

Oven will not light. No smell of gas. Changed out oven igniter. Put everything back together and tried oven. Oven still does not come on. I hear a click in control panel, but no fire in oven. Anything i can do to make the oven work?
For model number GW397LXUS06
Hello Randy, Thank you for your question. If the igniter is working and the oven still does not light, it may be an issue with your gas supply. I would check the regulator as well as the Safety Valve (Part# PS11744553). Best of luck with your repair.

For model number JGW8130DDW
Hi Randy, Thank you for your inquiry. You should not need to pull your appliance to replace these parts. However you may have to remove your appliance if your wires fell back into the hole. I hope that helps. Good luck with your repair.

My oven takes a while to ignite the dies so with a whoosh and an explosive sound which pushes the oven door open. Does this mean the ignition is broken ?
For model number MGR5875QDQ
Hello Chana, thank you for your question. We would recommend replacing the oven igniters first. Usually when this happens, it means there is gas getting to the unit but the igniter is not getting hot enough to light until much longer than necessary. I hope this helps.

Oven lit and took a while to heat.Not too long later after not really reaching the cooking temp needed it started to give off an odor like a burning pot handle (gas?). Turned oven off checked for any object that may have been burning.None.Tried to put oven back on.Igniter glowed hot but would not ignite burner.What do you think could be the problem?
For model number MGR5750BDW
Hi Joe, Thank you for the question. I suggest checking the oven igniter. This part will need to be repaired if your oven element is giving off no heat or very little, or is not heating evenly. You may also notice a smell of gas. The ignitor may still be glowing, but could still have gone bad. Hope this helps!

My oven igniter does not glow at all. I removed it to check continuity and it does have continuity. How many ohms of resistance should it have?
For model number CGS1740ADT
Hi Dave, Thank you for the question. You can test for 3.2-3.6 volts AC at the gas safety valve with the igniter turned on. If the voltage is good, you have a bad safety valve. If the voltage is low, you have a weak igniter. Hope this helps!

Oven wouldn’t heat up properly
My oven has two igniters so I needed to determine which one was the problem.

Using the amp/multi meter I tested the connection between the igniters and the valve, with the oven turned on, to find the bad igniter. Depending on the model of stove you have, the amp reading you need for a properly functioning igniter will vary. My lower igniter read 2.7 amps with a rated amp between 3.3 and 3.6. So that was the culprit.

Replacing the igniter was easy. Two screws and a wire connected with a plug. I was able to do the diagnosis and unplug the wire without pulling the oven out. I pulled the drawer out and removed the two screws in a cover behind where the drawer was. You may not be so lucky…I have long arms.

I found removing the oven door made it easier to reach the igniter itself. To remove the door just open it slightly and pull up, it should come off easy…and replace in opposite manner.

Keep track of your screws and put it back together the way you found it except for the igniter that is.

Anyone with moderate technical skill could easily do this repair. The diagnosis is the hard part. I estimate I saved about $200 doing it myself.

Good luck.

Our oven would not heat up, smelled like gas.
I removed the oven door, unscrewed a couple of screws, replaced the ignitor, put screws back in, done! Sometimes it would take my oven up to an hour to heat up and sometimes it just wouldn't heat up, just fill the house with a gas smell. Now, it heats up in about 3 minutes!! We were considering buying a new oven, we will just keep this one. $40.00 beats $700.00

Stove wasn't reaching the set temperture.
First I removed the two screws that hold the element in place. I then pulled the element out about 3 inches and disconnected the two wires. Replaced the element and attached the wires. Making sure I pushed the wires back through the hole far enough so the wires wouldn't touch the back of the stove. I then replaced the sensor by removing the two screws and pulling the wire through the hole so I could disconnect them. I reconnected the new sensor and made sure I pushed the wires back through the hole far enough away from the back of the stove. Replaced the screws and was all set to start the stove. I started the stove and it took about 10 min. to reach the set temperture. The stove worked great.

oven wouldnt maintain temperature
First I removed the oven grates and then the metal plate that covers the burner and igniter.Then I removed the two screws that hold in the igniter,be careful because the threads on the sheet metal screw strip off easily due to the heat. Then I slid out the storage drawer on the bottom of the stove.Next I removed two screws that hold on a cover in front of the gas valve where the igniter is plugged in.I unplugged the old igniter, removed it then replaced it with the new one.I then reassembled everything in the reverse order.I did have to use a nut and bolt to replace the damaged sheet metal screw.

Oven & Broiler Failed to Ignite
First I removed the oven door for easier access then, removed the oven grates and bottom pan. Then there is a wing nut that holds the heat deflector in place over the manifold thats needs to be removed. Now you can see the igniter, remove the 2 small hex head screws and disconnect electrical connection.
Simply reverse the sequence to reinstall.
This may sound like alot to do but it only took 15 minutes to complete and I'm not an appliance repair person. Anyone who is somewhat of a handyman can accomplish this job.

Oven wouldnt ignite
Turned gas and electricity off first. Pulled out the bottom pan so I could access the igniter. Removed two screws holding the igniter next to the burner tube, unplugged the igniter from the back of the stove and then pulled the plug threw into the oven. Mounted new igniter and then pulled the plug threw and plugged it back in. Reinstalled bottom pan and I was done in 15 - 20 minutes. VERY EASY TO DO...

Oven would not maintain set temperature. Oven flame would take a long time to re-ignite causing oven to cool down more than 100 degrees before re-igniting.
Step1: Remove oven door. Open oven door about 3-4 inches and pull up with 2 hands.

Step2: Turn oven light ON so you can see.

Step3: Remove bottom tray by pulling on the 2 rear clips and lift tray up and out of the oven.

Step4: Using a nut driver remove the 2 nuts holding the ignitor in place. If nuts are rusted from heat spray a tiny bit of WD-40 on them and totally wipe off any excess when finished removing the nuts.

Step5:Pull wire from old ignitor through the insulation and unplug it from its connection.

Step6: Plug in new ignitor and push it back through the insulation and fasten it back in position with the 2 nuts.

Step7: Re-install bottom tray and door and CONGRATULATIONS cause you just saved yourself about $150! by DIY And you never again will be eating semi-raw chicken or better yet, take the money you just saved and treat yourself and your family to a sushi dinner.

I would like to thank Partselect.com for their quick delivery and very reasonable price on the Ignitor I purchased.

Regards.

Oven would not light; dings in the porcelin top
The bottom burner would not stay lit. I determined that it was as a result of the ignitor's voltage droping. The thing still glowed red but apparently the voltage drops and closes the gas valve. So, I switched the broiler one with the bottom one to see if it would work. It did. Then I bought the new ignitor and put it in where I had taken the broiler ignitor out. You have to take care to put the insulation back and shove the connector well into the hole so that there is no possibllity of it melting. I also replaced the oven top. I had bought that part a couple of years ago because I had dropped some things on it and it was chipped. When I got the top I thought it would be somewhat intuitive as to how to replace it. But, it wasn't. So,it stayed in its box. When I had the other problem I decided to tackle the top too. First turn off the gas and unplug the oven. You have to pry the top off with a screw driver. Then, you disconnect wires which run to the ignitor for each burner. You also have to disconnect the gas lines running to each dial. Now, you take the top off. To get the burners off the top you have to take a pair of channel locks and open them wide, wrap a rag around the burner and turn them like screws. Under the top there is an assembly that holds the gas lines in place. that has to be removed from under each buner. These assemblies are not interchangeable!!! One is left and the other is right. You then reverse everything. Put the burners in by screwing them down. Its hard but if you put a rag over them you can strike them with a rubber mallet. Screw the gas line assemblies into the bottom of the top. Then hook up the wires and then the gas lines. Then, you pop the top back in. There are those pressure clamps that hold the top down. I made a mistake with the gas line assemblies and switched them. So, when I tested the repair I realized I had the front dial controlling the rear burners and vice versa. Some day I take it all apart and fix it again!
