Product Description

Flat Style Oven Igniter Specifications

This is a flat style oven igniter used to light the oven burner 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.

Gas Oven did not come on. Broiler worked.
Removed oven door. (Open to first position then lift the door straight up). Located igniter in bottom of oven, followed connecting wires to connection block below oven behind the oven drawer. Disconnected the existing wires. Lifted the burner out of oven to disconnect defective igniter. Screws were fused to the burner. Used vice grips to remove screws requiring the screw holes to be retapped. Bought new screws to replace trashed screws. Installed new igniter to the burner rail then set burner rail back in place. Fished the leads from new igniter back down to connector block. Reinstalled leads. Reinstalled oven door. Tested functionality of oven. Everything worked. Reinstalled metal plates back in oven. Reinstalled cover over connection block behind bottom drawer. Reinstalled drawer. With the exception of fighting with two screws fused to the burner rail it is a very straightforward repair and shouldn’t take much more than 1/2 hour.

Oven would not light
Working on an old oven is difficult. Please expect the unexpected. The years of heating and cooling play havoc with oven parts. The screws holding the Flat Style Oven Ignitor become stripped. It took extra time to remove them. I had to go to the hardware store to buy replacement screws. Once I removed the old parts and had replacement screws the job was very easy.

Ignitor glows but not hot enough to open the gas valve. It's old.
My Tappan Tail:

Open the oven and remove the racks, turn on the oven light.
Remove two screws in the back to remove the bottom plate. Mine are about 1 1/4 in. long.
Remove one nut holding the butterfly plate in place. Ignitor will be exposed.

Turn off the oven light and unplug oven. Don't drop the plug behind the oven, I was ready for that one.
Drop light or flash light will be needed, it's dark in there. And something to sit on, 16" old plastic milk caddy, I just happen to have one.

Remove the two screws holding the ignitor, don't cut the wires just yet. Take note where the wiring runs. Install the new ignitor. My wires went behind the gas piping.

I cut the bottom wire from the old ignitor first, up close to the ceramic. Wire shield can be reused, slide it over the new wire. Cut the old wire, leave a lot. Trim the new wire to desired length and strip the ends of both and use the ceramic cap and connect the wires.
Do the top wire.
Slide the wire shield next to the igniter, adjust the wires so the wire shields won't slide away from ignitor. With the butterfly shield back in place it's time to plug it in and give it a test.
Nice.
Replace the bottom plate of oven, screw holes hard to find. Had to use an awl to find the holes to line up the screws. I also didn't push the front of the plate down into place until I had the screws started. It helped.

You might think this is overkill, but how many of us have ever replaced the ignitor. Not me.
I do a lot of DIY's. I'll rate this as a 1, easy.

What shall I bake first, cornbread of course. I my cast iron skillet.

Oven wasn't staying on and or re-lighting, recycling to maintain the set Temp.
Opened the oven door, removed the racks. Removed the bottom cover, two thumb screws in the rear, bottom, of the oven. This exposed the top plate of the burner, (actually in the top of the broiler section) 1 nut took this cover off. Now, the burner and the igniter are exposed. Two screws removed the igniter, and two wires with ceramic wire nuts. Disconnected these two wires and that was it. Installed the new igniter in reverse procedure as above. Pretty easy. Probably should have turned off the power to the Range first just to be safe.

Oven would not light or heat, Igniter WAS WORKING
Oven would not light upon setting for oven heat-up. Igniter would glow, but no gas flow. Gas Valve safety not sensing enough current draw from igniter to open gas valve. Original igniter measured 175 Ohms on Volt-Ohmmeter. New Igniter measured 74 Ohms before installation and use. Installed and spliced into existing wires using good quality wire nuts and tucked wiring into wire areas ensuring it was away from burner flue. Oven lit on first start-up! Problem fixed! Easiest to get to by removing broiler drawer, pressing catch tangs in from outside rails using a small screwdriver. 1 screw of 2 on igniter mount was stripped and difficult to remove, but working with pliers and nut driver was able to remove it with some difficulty. New Igniter hangs fine with 1 screw. .

Bad ignitor
This was very easy. Just remove the bottom of the oven by removing the two screw in the back. Then remove the baffle from under that and you of will see the ingniter. The one wire will reach the gas valve, just splce the other. 6 screws is all it takes. Turned it on worked perfectly.

Took a long time to light oven, smell of gas, slow heat up.
Really easy to do, did not have to bring stove out from the wall! Turn power off to the stove. Remove the lower drawer. Remove the oven rakes. With a slotted screwdriver remove two screws in back of bottom oven cover, use 1/4 inch socket to remove two screws in front. Remove bottom oven cover. You can then see the part to be removed which has two wires going into it, the unit looks identical to the new part which heats up and lights the gas grill for the oven. I cut the two wires from the old part, remember which is the upper and lower; remove two screws holding onto part. Wire new part remembering top and bottom. Push extra wire down into bottom drawer and then mount new part with two screws. Turn power back on and try oven. Lite right away for me so I knew I had replaced the bad part. Reassemble and Enjoy!!

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?
PartSelect logo
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.

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?
PartSelect logo
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.

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

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

ROCCO

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?
For model number FGF374CCSB

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.

For model number FGF337AUH

Hello Ronnie, Thank you for the question. The next part to check is the Safety Valve, PartSelect Number PS446204. If you can not smell gas the valve might be defective. Hope this helps, good luck with this repair!

I had bad ignitor symptoms, checked and found my igniter element was in three pieces. I replaced the igniter. Turned oven on, everything was working, igniter glowed, gas started flowing and oven was heating up, then bang, and nothing. I found the new igniter in three pieces also. Any idea why the igniters are failing?
For model number cgs990
PartSelect logo
Hi Wade, Thank you for your question. If the igniter had a crack in it or was defective it may cause it to prematurely fail. Also if you touched the carborundum portion of igniter with your fingers, the oil from your skin can cause the igniter to fail. I hope this helps. Thank you and have a great day!

When you turn oven on, you hear it click, but it won't light...why?
For model number fgf354bgdc
PartSelect logo
Hello Debbie, thank you for your question. There are a few parts you will want to test/replace to fix this issue. The most likely issue is the igniter itself. If the igniter isn't getting hot enough it won't allow the gas valve to release the gas and light the burner. You may also want to check the oven temperature sensor part number 5304497424 and the safety valve part number 5303208499. I hope this helps!

Hello> i am having trouble finding the model number? Where is it located? The problem i have is when the oven is turned on the amps start out at 2.5 amp and them ramp up to 30.35 amps and trips the 20 amp breaker. Could it be a bad gas igniter ?
For model number TGF336BHWA

Hi Mike, Thank you for your inquiry. There are some parts that you will need to check to see which one is causing the issue. You will need to check the oven thermostat and the flat style oven igniter. I hope this helps. Thank you and have a great day!
