I have a30" freestanding gas range and I was trying to use

Customer Question

I have a30" freestanding gas range and I was trying to use the oven . I put in the desired temp and hit start. it made a click like it usually does but never ignited. I read it could take up to 60 seconds to light. It usually lights right away. Could it be the safety control valve not opening or is the igniter not heating up. It is on propane and plugged into a 110 volt outlet. Everything on the digital display is on and working.

Ok see if the broiler works when set to broil, if it does replace the ignitor it is bad or burned out.

Expert:  HVAC Guru replied 1 year ago.

Check and see if you get 120 volts to the ignitor wires when you have it set to bake/

I pulled out the bottom of the oven and turned it to bake and the igniter doesn't even burn red or glow. in order to check voltage due I take the igniter loose and test it on the male electrical connector.
Expert:  HVAC Guru replied 1 year ago.

Yes test across the two wire connector to it

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
disconnected and turned to bake and it read 123 volts
