This is a flat style oven igniter used to light the element in a gas range. When the element in this igniter glows white hot, the gas is released from the safety valves, which lights the oven burner. If your range is not heating properly, or not heating at all, it might indicate a problem with this part. If the element in the igniter is only glowing red or orange, or not glowing at all, it will need to be replaced. This is a shorter style igniter. It is 3.72 inches in length, and it features an 18-inch wire lead. This kit includes the igniter, an instruction sheet, a mounting bracket, and the two ceramic wire nuts needed for installation. This part has an amperage range of 3.2 to 3.6. Unplug your appliance before you start any repair work.

Question:

If my oven is taking too long to heat up and i’m hearing a banging noise when it starts up but I can smell the gas is that the igniter?

Bailie
Answer:

Hi Bailey, thanks for the question. It sounds like it is the igniter causing your problem, but you can test it to be sure. First you should remove any covers or shields so you can observe the igniter. The igniter needs to glow white hot to open the gas safety valve. If your element is glowing but won't light the burner after 90 seconds your igniter is too weak to open the gas safety valve and will need to be replaced. If the igniter is not glowing at all you can use a multi-meter to test it for continuity, if there is no continuity that means the igniter needs to be replaced. I hope this helps, if you have any further questions please let us know.

Question:

My oven isn’t turning on and heating up so I tested my igniter and it tested fine and it isn’t visibly damaged but what else could it be?

Lee
Answer:

Hi Lee, I recommend observing the igniter as it tries to light the burner. The igniter will need to be glowing white hot to open the gas safety valve, if it is too weak to do that the burner will not light. If the igniter is glowing but the the burner does not light after 90 seconds this also indicates the igniter is weak and needs to be replaced. I hope this helps, if you have any further questions please let us know.

Question:

I've read about problems caused by a weak igniter. Mine glows bright orange and the element lights, but with about half the normal amount of Flame. This takes close to 90 seconds. Once gas is flowing, i tap the valve housing lightly with my screwdriver, the valve fully opens and there is a normal Flame. Is this a situation where a new igniter will probably fix the problem?

ROCCO for model number FGF374CCSB
Answer:

Hi Rocco, Thank you for your question. It sounds like it could be that part. I would suggest also testing it with a multi meter as well, just to make sure. Good luck with your repair.

Question:

I have a 5.0 amp igniter what you think? Work or not

Gonzalo
Answer:

Hi Gonzalo, Thank you for the question. The igniter has to be drawing at least 3 amps for the gas valve to open,so your igniter should be good. Hope this helps!

Question:

The igniter is glowing yellow but the bottom burner will not get hot. The top burners all work. Thoughts?

Marge
Answer:

Hi Marge, the igniter needs to glow white hot to open the gas safety valve, if yours is not getting white hot it is too weak and will need to be replaced. I hope this helps.

Oven would not heat.

Turned the gas and the electricity off to the gas range. Took the two large screws out in the back of the range holding on the first pan. Have to look for them. Took off the single nut holding on the second pan. Used nut drive #10 to take off nuts. Be careful you do not lose them. Took off inoperative unit. Cut wires to unit. Stripped wires which connect to range. Put new unit on and tightened nuts with nutdriver. Spliced wires together and put on wire nuts securely. Taped them to the wires. Put the second pan back, then the first pan. Turned on gas and electricity to test.
Worked fine. Found that the old unit was cracked and had a piece missing. Must use flashlight. Be safe.

Oven would not come on. If it did, it took a long time to heat up.

Removed the broiler compartment door by depressing the slide stops inward and pulling the door off. Turned off the breaker to the oven. Used a nut driver to remove the old ignitor ( 2 screws ). Cut the wires off the old ignitor close to the porclin. Measured the new ignitor wires to match up with the old ignitor wires and cut them. Stripped 3/8 " off ends of newely cut wires of the ignitor and used the supplied wire nuts to secure them together. Replaced the new ignitor with the 2 screws. Turned on the oven and a cooking I went.

Customer: Jeffrey from Mission Viejo, CA

The oven would not light and the house smelled like gas.

I removed the oven floor and subfloor. I detached the old ignighter leaving the wires still attached. I then attached the new ignighter and fed each of the two new wires down through the bottom of the oven floor following the same path of the old wires which were still attached. I attached the new wires one at a time to make sure I connected them to the right place. Then, I pulled out the old igniter. I then attached the oven floors and turned the oven on which now works. The tough part is pulling the oven out from the wall to disconnect the power and turn off the gas. I did not remove the oven door.

Oven wouldn't heat , glow from bottom, and strong smell of gas

First unplugged the oven from the wall and then I removed the bottom floor of the oven by removing the two screws at the back. Then I removed the heat shield over the burner by remove the two screws at the front of the oven and removed the nut in the middle of the heat shield that was hold the shield to the burner. I removed the two screws on the flat oven igniter and cut the two wires on the igniter and pulled the two wires through the open in the bottom oven from the drawer opening. Mounted the new igniter and feed the two wire from the igniter through the open in the bottom of the oven, Stripped the two wires that I cut from the oven, twisted the new wires to the old, and put the wire nuts on. Last I put everything back together and baked dinner. Took ten about minutes and saved a thousand dollars because I was going to buy a new oven. Thanks, Partselect.

Igniter lights up, but no flame appears, no gas

I cut the wires from the old igniter near where it said to. I then connected the new wires to the old ones, put it back on, the way I remembered it being assembled, but still won't heat up. I tried to get an enlarged detail of where I was working on, but I couldn't enlarge it from your website. My friend, who knows about electricity, worked on it for several hours last pm(He's an electrician), but could not figure it out with the scamatic that was on the range, because he was not there when I disassembled it,
