hello, if the oven doesnt heat but the broiler does it is almost always a defective ignitor , there isnt very many things that go wrong with that model ..you would need a oven ignitor replaced..they are all pretty much the same . this one will work or you can get the original wolf one from any local parts store that carry wolf parts , the place i use doesnt carry wolf parts but its the same ignitor

Oven ignitor, this item is also referred to as a glow bar. The igniter is mounted vertically on the burner tube. If the oven does not heat check if the igniter is glowing, if so then there is a good chance the igniter is weak and will need repalcement.

I replaced the igniter less than 1 year ago. I'm not saying your wrong, in fact I tend to agree, but seriously, less than 1 year life?Also, I replaced the broiler igniter as it tends to ignite with an explosion due to gas build-up before ignition and the broiler still explodes on ignition.Is there a better igniter than these POS's?David
it happens ,ive seen some go quicker than that, you might want to also check the burner where the ignitor mounts ,that ignition area can deteriorate and little pieces of metal can break off and short the ignitor i had that happen to a cust 3 ignitors in 2 years ,replaced burner and all good for a few yrs now
there isnt really a stronger ignitor , trying to slight bend the mounting closer may work a bit better for the delay ignition ,and also ithey did improve the broil burner as well ,more ignition port holes
Please advise the p/n for the igniter, if there is a fee to advise pls quote it.TY David
you can get this one ,online if you want the specific one ,you would have to get from wolf , if you changed it last yr ,it would have the same part number ..
Please confirm the broiler and the oven use the same igniter?
yes ,its the same but you wouldnt need that if the broil works?
just longer leads on the broil ignitor
TY,I was going to swap them until as we rarely use the broiler but need the oven.David
it would work as a temporary if in a emergency
Is there a safety reason not to swap?
as long as the wires are not bare..its the same body size ,you can compare them both and they should mount in the same holes..they just draw amperage and open the valve ..
Thank you,I am trying to search my Just Answer records for the p/n of the stovetop burner igniter (also failed), are you able to check my past records and provide?David
sorry i dont have access to that info , that would be a admin issue
How much would the fee be to provide the part #?
if administration has that info im sure they wouldnt charge you for that
I just want to order the part.
order parts you would have to go to any parts online place like repairclinic or any other online place or any parts stores in your city , we do just the diagnosis and repair info parts can be gotten from anywhere ..you have the model R304 any subzero/wolf parts can get a ignitor ..
repairclinic.com is the place i deal with but they dont have the wolf ignitor ,sorry
they do have the universal ignitors which are essentially the same thing though
hi , did you get the subzero number you wanted ? sorry i didnt quite understand yesterday ..i hope ignitor was the issue thx Randy
please, what is the part called the ceramic post that initiates the spark?
that is the top burner ,its called a spark ignitor , the oven ignitors are called glow ignitors..
