Hi thanks for choosing this service, this usually indicates a failing glow bar, which is what lights the gas will cause oven not to light and you will sometimes smell gas.

Hi, welcome to Just Answer. Sorry to hear you are having appliance trouble, I know how frustrating that can be! My name is ***** ***** I look forward to helping you!

  • The igniter must draw at least 3.2 amps to open the gas valve. If it is glowing but not opening all the way, it can leak and not ignitie or have delayed ignition. Is the igniter glowing when the oven is turned on?
  • May I please have your model number so I am able to provide you with accurate, model specific information?
