My oven won't heat up! Help!!!


Recommended Posts

My guess is that it's a newer model that has a ceramic ignition system instead of a pilot; DIY replacements are possible. The igniter's are powered by electricity and seem to wear out after awhile. DH has replaced ours several times over the years. The units aren't cheap, but having it done doubles the cost.

 

Mine doesn't fail all at once, though...there's usually a warning in the form of it taking longer than usual to reach the set temp. for a couple of weeks before it stops working.

That's what happened with mine - it started taking a very long time for the oven to reach temp and so we called dh's best friend (who's an appliance repairman) and he replaced the ignitor.

We are in a rental :glare: and dh has left a message with the owner. I used it last night and it "seemed" okay, but it's been awhile since I used gas (we just moved in a couple months ago).

 

I don't smell any gas when I turn it on...

 

Uggghhh...

We had the problem once and it was because the oven got bumped. Behind our oven their is the nozzle or lever that controls the gas line. If you slide your oven out make sure that it is connected fine still. Ours was turned to almost off and my dh just turned it back up and it worked fine.

 

Good luck!
