If the igniter glows red but does not open the valve, the igniter is weak and not drawing enough current through the valve to open it, the most common failure. Replacing the igniter should get it back up and working.

Does a faulty timer also stop the oven lighting? And does timer need to be on to light gas oven
UK Appliance Technician: Kelly, Appliance Technician replied 8 months ago

It will if set to a timed bake, it won't let power go to the ingiter. That is not the issue, though, if the igniter glows.

My understanding is the hot surface ignitor and gas valve was replaced but oven would still not light so the new parts were taken back out and old ones put back in is there another faulty part that possibly should have been replaced

Why does ignitor only glow when the timer is turned on? But dosnt glow when turned of?
UK Appliance Technician: Kelly, Appliance Technician replied 8 months ago

No, not if the igniter is glowing. There is about a 60-90 second delay in ignition. Was that time allowed?

The timer is set to turn the oven on, I suspect. I am not sure what you are setting the timer at.

Timer is broken so just wanted to know if oven flame should still lite up?and yes the 60 to 90secs was allowed
UK Appliance Technician: Kelly, Appliance Technician replied 8 months ago

If the igniter is glowing, the timer is not a consideration at all, even if it is broken.
