If the oven is not coming on but broiler does is this the igniter? You can hear it trying to make contact!
For model number JGP75AEY1AA
Hi Joan, Thank you for your question. It sounds like it may just be your igniter that is the issue. You should be able to test that part with a multi meter to see if it is working correctly or not. It should read somewhere between 50 - 1100 ohms of resistance. Good luck with your repair.

My oven works fine but the broiler igniter will not glow. Does the broiler and oven have the same igniter? What part number would work for the broiler igniter?
For model number JGB281DER1BB
Hello Terry, Thanks for your question. The flat style oven igniter is used for heating your oven, but there are two other igniters commonly associated with the broiling element. Thankfully, all of these can be tested relatively easily. If they glow for 90 seconds without generating heat, they are faulty and should be replaced. I hope this helps.

Ordered and changed igniter wb13k21 as per recommended solution of low heat in oven still low heat,400 at 550,300 at 400.Cycles on and off but at a lower bake temp.Any recommendations would be appreciated. Thanks
For model number JGB605det2ww
Hi Hank, Thank you for the question. I recommend replacing the Temperature Sensor, PartSelect Number PS2374070.The sensor maintains the temperature inside the oven to the set degrees, when defective the oven might not obtain the correct temperature you set or will over heat. Hope this helps!

When we light the oven it makes a loud boom.
For model number Jgbp36bej1bb
Hello George, thank you for your question. We would recommend replacing the igniter. Usually when this happens it means the igniter is taking too long to light. I hope this helps.

What should the omhs be reading for that part number
For model number Ps231270
Hi Scott, Thank you for your question. This part should read anywhere between 0 and 1100 ohms of resistance. If the meter does not move then your igniter will have to be replaced. Good luck with your repair.

The oven does not heat at all. There is no clicking sound.
For model number JGBS23WEL1WW
Hi El, Thank you for your question. There could be a few parts that are causing that issue. I would suggest testing your igniter first. You could also test your temperature sensor as well. You can test both of those parts with a multi meter to make sure that they are working correctly. If both of those parts are fine you may want to also check your spark module. If that part is also working, it may be your control board that is the issue. I hope that helps. Good luck with your repair.

My oven lights all the time but we get a gas smell first. I had GE here on a service call, but it worked perfectly. Lit every time and no gas smell. He said it could be the igniter. What are the other possibilities
For model number pgb930set3ss
Hi Anthony, thank you for your question. The igniter might be the issue where it is not igniting right away and so you smell gas before it actually ignites. The only other part that I could think of being the issue might be the safety valve or regulator. I hope that helps. Good luck with your repair.

Sorry, we couldn't find any existing installation instruction that matched.
The igniter glowed, but never got hot enough to ignite the propane, so I did smell propane.
First, I removed the two screws that held the heat shield in place. Second, I removed the one screw that held a small wire covering. That covering kept the wires inside the back wall of the range. Third, I removed the two screws that held the Igniter Kit, and unplugged it from the back of the range. I then carefully put the new igniter in, and reassembled everything in reverse order. It only took about 30 minutes to do the repair, and 30 minutes of cleaning and wiping of the broiler area. (It is amazing what you see when you take things apart). I should have been wiping things up over the past few months. Overall, a very easy repair. I ordered the part at 12:30 in the afternoon, and FedEx delivered it the next morning at 11:30, all for the regular shipping price of $6.95. VERY HAPPY.....

oven would not light or keep temp.
first I thought it was a faulty gas valve, so I pulled it out, started researching for a replacement part, found your site and started research. I discovered thhat the igniter was the culprit, that info. saved me about a week of time and a 100 bucks, so I installed the gas safety valve back in the oven, patience is the word for the day, you cross thread this and you are done! any way ordered ignighter and it shipped to my house in about 4 days, New York to Calif. had it installed in about 15 minutes fired off the oven and ...IT worked hurray...10-9-2010,

Oven wouldn't heat. This degraded over several weeks.
1. Pulled the 110V power plug. It was not necessary to turn off the gas; just be careful not to stretch or pinch the flexhose behind the stove.
2. Removed the oven door by opening a couple of inches then lifting upward.
3. Removed the warming drawer by pulling out to the stop, then pushing the small levers on the side of the track to release.
4. Removed two flathead screws at the back of the oven to free up the oven bottom panel.
5. Removed the bottom panel by lifting up the pack until the front edge clears the overhang.
6. Removed the two screws on the side that hold the igniter to the burner tube. Be sure not to let the screws drop into the gaps in the oven floor. Note the position of the bent tab with the holes to ease aligning the new part.
7. Reached through the warming drawer to release the plug by squeezing the tabs on the end.
8. Pulled the plug up through the gap in the oven floor (where the wires went through) and connected it to the other connector.
9. Ran the new wire down through the oven floor.
10. Aligned the new igniter and tightened them. Had trouble getting the screws started so I used a toothpick to align one hole while starting the other screw.
11. Replaced the oven bottom panel. It needed a little jockeying to get the screws and holes aligned.
12. Replaced the door.
13. Replaced the oven drawer.

This turned out to be a good time to clean all those dusty places that don't get cleaned that often.

On Thankgiving Day with company coming and the turkey in the oven, my kenmore stove decided to act up. The oven burner started to smell awful and start carboning up due to improper burning at the burner tube. We then abandoned our attempts to roast the turkey in the oven for that day.
After removing the bake tube and ignitor assembly the following day for a close inspection which involved removal of the bottom pan, racks etc. and disconnecting the ignitor / tube assembly by unscrewing the sheet-metal screws holding them in place, I discovered that the ignitor had burned a hole in the bake tube which could not be seen without unscrewing the ignitor from the tube first. This caused the air / propane ratio to dramaticly change causing the oven to have a strong odor, start to carbon up the bake tube and effect the temperatures and cook time and the possibility of monoxide fumes effecting the chef. The parts that partselect.com supplied, which were in stock ,worked perfectly and saved my Christmas goose. Happy Holidays!

Oven not getting hot/no flame no gas.
Step 1. Pull oven out disconnect power,turn off gas & remove gas line from stove.
Step 2. Remove broiler drawer,locate igniter & safety valve.
Step 3. Disconnect 2pin molex connector for igniter and faston connectors from
valve.
Step 4. Use nut driver remove fasteners that hold igniter and valve remove gas line and feed
from valve.
Step 5. Replace valve and igniter.Repeat steps 4-1 and start baking.

Note: You may only need a igniter and not a valve,both were bad on my unit.
Most often it's just the igniter that goes out.

oven wouldn't heat
First I removed the two screws that hold the element in place. I then pulled the element out about three inches and disconnected the wires.
I had tried to get a replacement element from Sears but their new element did not have the proper connecter and was missing the flange on the side that the screws went. I am very pleased that I was able to get the exact replacemen part.

Oven came on by itself, finally burning out the igniter
Once I figured out how to get the top off it was not too bad. all of the screws and igniters for the burners had to be removed. The actual install of the thermostat was simple after that. The igniter was also an easy install. Overall, it takes more time to disassemble the stove to get to the problem than to install the part.

oven would not ignite
1. removed old oven glow igniter using nut driver socket--it wasn't that tight so I didn't have to use the actual driver. The igniter was now loose hanging from its 2 wires.
2. on the web I read that the new part would have to be spliced to the old, however I was able to push the old igniter through a hole in the oven wall and then pull it out of an adjoining hole on the right hand side. With some effort I detached the old igniter from a plug receptacle that leads back up to the main wiring junction of the oven.
3. I then plugged the new igniter into the receptacle, pushed it back into one hole, then fished it out of the other hole. I could then reattach the new igniter onto the gas delivery tube. Turned the oven on and it worked.
