Arrow More Detailed Information Requested

Hello tankertony. Welcome to my Gas Appliances forum.

Without knowing what the problem is, it's difficult to offer a solution. I would also need to know what type of ignition system the oven uses.

A constant always on pilot flame or a hot surface ignitor. Hot surface ignitor may be a flat bar type ignitor or a round coil. Each type glows a bright intense yellow orange color.

Is the appliance currently installed or in storage? Is it still apart or was it put back together? Based upon the limited information posted, too difficult to say exactly what could be wrong. Try posting more detailed information.

Read the manufacturers instructional or owners manual & online web sites for product information, problem possibilities, causes and solving methods, part locations, disassembly, reassembly methods, repair proceedures, and instructions, pictorials and schematics, which may be available online.

An excellent source for orginal replacement parts is your local retail appliance parts store. Appliance parts dealers test parts and carry replacement parts for all appliances. Parts dealers are listed in the phone book under appliances.

Retail parts dealers can also help determine what the possible problem may be. Bring the make, model and serial numbers and stop in at the store. The info will help to determine the possible problem causes. Parts dealers are listed in the phone book under appliances.

Read the prior topics, within this forum, on this subject and the replies offered. I'm sure you'll locate the exact symptom and the correctional possibility.

If you need further assistance, use the REPLY button. By doing so, the additional information you add or questions you may have, will remain within this posting. Using this method also moves the topic back up to the top of the list automatically.
