Hello Again Keepers of Wisdom.

 

Operation theory has got me again as I try to understand why my oven goes thru the purge cycle, igniter glows but not enough gas seems to come on to light the oven burner. I smell gas, open the broiler door, manually light it, (Very Small Flame) couple of minutes later we're good to go.

 

I need somebody to do some "splainin' " to me.

 

Many Thanks, As always...You're the best!

If you have an amp clamp type meter, clamp it around one of the igniter wires and see if it draws at least 3.2 amps when the oven is on.

If you don't, just try a new igniter, very common issue with gas ovens.

This page gives some background theory on hot surface ignition systems like the one used in your oven: http://fixitnow.com/...t-wont-fire-up/

Vee8 is correct in that you probably need a new igniter. A current draw measurement will confirm.

Here's the replacement igniter for your range: http://www.repaircli...er/WB13K21/2494

That page has is excellent for diagnosing gas ovens. The 3.2 amp figure I mentioned is for this oven; ovens with the other style igniter are 2.5 amps.

 

My question is, how do we arrive at the 97.98745987% figure? Does that fall somewhere between almost definitely and pretty much fer sure? :wink:

It's a weighted average, as in doing weight training in my mind...
