Hello, Thank you for using this service, I will be helping you with your problem today
Good morning, the reason the oven wont light even though the igniter is glowing is because the igniter is weak. these can glow and still be bad, they need to draw enough amps to open the safety valve.
you need to replace the igniter. you can order this @ http://www.repairclinic.com/PartDetail/Oven-Igniter/WB13K21/2494 this should be the correct igniter , I had to change the S in your model number to a 5 to bring up the range. if this igniter doesn't look like yours please recheck the model number and we will go from there. thanks , Bryan
so what I am suspecting is that there are two issues with the the range, 1. the leaking regulator will cause the smell but should not cause the oven not to light.
2. the ignighter is not glowing hot enough to open the safty gas valve......its glows bright orange now. should it be a more whightess color?
yes there is a seperate broil
that is the one that glows but does not light, the oven does light.
but the gas smell was coming from the rugulator according the the gas company tech.
