our stover works fine except for the burner for the over, the broiler and all cooktops work, as weell as the igniter for the oven element. we just aren't gettig any gas to the burner element for the oven. any ideas ?

bryanpaul52 :

Good morning, the issue is the igniter itself, even though it comes on and glows it's not drawing the required amperage to open the safety valve, this is a common problem and the igniter itself needs to be replaced. These igniters usually fail after about 3 to 4 years of use, the igniter stays on the whole time the burner is lit so they tend to burn out rather quickly, replaced igniter and you should be all set, thanks, Bryan


Thank you very much, Bryan. I was hoping it was something simple, thanks again !
