Take out the screws holding the tray first. some models do not have screws. they just lift up and out and you can take the tray out that way. when it is out of the way, you shouldnt have a problem getting at it.

Inginator lightrs but oven does not heat


If your oven has internal fuses, a wiring or component problem could have caused a fuse to blow. A blown fuse is an indication that a component has shorted or failed, and the problem will need to be corrected. Most ovens that use fuses will have an indication of the circuits that are affected by a particular fuse. If an oven fuse has blown, then you should inspect the oven element and the associated wiring to determine the cause before replacing the fuse.

THINGS TO CHECK:

the broil element
is the heating element that is found at the top of the oven and produces a very high heat for broiling. If the broil element isn't working, you should first do a visual inspection for signs that the element has blistered or separated. If the element appears normal then you can check for continuity with a multi-meter. Remove power from the appliance before performing this test. Remove the back panel and locate the terminals for the broil element and inspect the terminals and wires for signs of overheating or damage.

If there is no continuity then the element will need to be replaced. If the wires are damaged then they will need to be repaired. If the element is ok then you will need to check the broil circuit to determine the cause. This involves live voltage checks and should only be performed by qualified persons. Components to check include fuses, if the range is equipped, and oven control thermostat or electronic control.


The bake element
is the heating element that is found at the bottom of the oven. Most electric ovens use both the bake element and the broil element in a bake cycle, with the bake element performing 90% of the heating. If the bake element isn't working, the oven may not heat. To help determine if the bake element is defective you should first do a visual check. If the element is blistered or separated then it should be replaced. If the element appears to look normal, then turn the oven on to a bake function for a minute and then turn it off.

Check the element for signs of heating and if it is still cold then it may be defective. Disconnect the power and then remove the back panel. First check the wires as they may have become loose or corroded. If the element appears to be fine visually, test it for continuity with a multi-meter. ( by placing the each of the meter prongs on each end of the heater element connectors) If the element is burned or no longer has continuity, it will need to be replaced.

The oven safety valve
(also called the gas valve) is the part that ensures that gas is not released until the igniter has reached the correct temperature needed to ignite the gas. While this part can fail, it is uncommon. If the hot surface igniter does not glow you should first verify that you have voltage to the circuit. This is a live voltage check and should be performed by a qualified person. If voltage is lost at the valve terminals then you should verify the continuity of the bi-metal in the valve using a multi-meter.

Oven wontr come on, but broiler does//


you have a bad ignitor part number 74007498 and it's around 65 dollars.pull out the racks and remove the floor of the stove and you'll see the ignitor screwed to the burner tube,wet the screws with a wet paper towel,they will come out easier or if it makes it any easier remove the tube and then remove the ignitor.first start the stove if the ignitor glows but doesn't ignite the flame in 40 seconds or less it's bad,if it doesn't glow at all check it for continuity but it sounds like the ignitor is bad,if the new ignitor comes with wire nuts,cut the wires close to the body of the old ignitor,trim some of the wires back on the new ignitor and wire nut them together with the ceramic wire nuts,on some you can get the screws out of the ignitor,cut the wires close to the body,mount the new ignitor,trim back the wires on the new ignitor and wire nut them together and you're done,it doesn't matter how long the wires are just as long as the wire nuts are under the floor and away from the tube.it might help to remove the bottom draw to get at the wires,hope this helps and good luck.

Oven does not heat up


most likely you have a bad bake ignitor part number WB13K21 and it's around 80 dollars,unplug the machine or shut down the breaker,remove the racks,remove the bottom floor of the oven,remove the flame panel and you'll see the ignitor attached to the burner tube,unplug the wire harness going to the ignitor,remove the screws holding the ignitor in place,plug in the new ignitor and put the screws back in,turn the power on and put it on bake,the ignitor should start to glow and the flame should lite in around 40 seconds.there are other ignitors that you can use in the stove,the only difference is that you cut the wires going to the old ignitor and splice in the new ignitor and use ceramic wire nuts to connect the wires together,it just doesn't have the harness connector on it

I have a GE Gave oven. THe top burnes work and the broiler works but when I set the oven to BAKE, nothing happens. THe digital display says it is pre-heating, but it doesnt get hot??


you have a bad ignitor,take out the racks and remove the floor of the oven,you'll see the round ignitor with two 1/4 inch screws holding it on,you can remove the burner tube that the ignitor is connected to with the ignitor on it or you can remove the screws,cut the wires close to the old ignitor and remove it,screw on the new ignitor,leave around6 or 8 inches of wire on the new ignitor,cut back the old wires so you can wire nut the wires together,start the oven and the ignitor should ignite the flame in like 20 to 40 seconds.it doesn't matter what wires you connect,you don't have to worry about if the left wire coming out of the ignitor connects to the same wire the old one connected to,just as long as the wire nuts are tight on the 2 connecting wires you'll be fine.the part number is WB13K21 and the ignitor is around 80 bucks.you can kill the power to the oven but no power is going to the ignitor if the bake isn't on so as long as you don't touch anything else you'll be fine,let me know how you make out

When i try to bake on my jenn air we have no flame on lower gas tube. But starter element is glowing red .No gas getting to gas tube?


If the bake ignitor comes on (starts glowing after a few seconds) - check the amperage on the bake ignitor wires when it's on. If the ignitor is a round style - amperage should be 2.5-3A, if the ignitor is rectangular - 3 - 3.6A. If less than 2.5A or 3A respectively - replace ignitor.
Ignitor part numbers for round style ones: 4342528, WB2X9154, SGR403, 5304401265;
rectangular styles: 12400035, WB13K21, WB2X9998, SGR412, NR020, 5303935066, 814269, 9753108.
Ignitors of the same shape (i.e. rectangular) are interchangeable, if you can splice the wires.

Good luck!

NEED TO INSTALL IGNITOR BURNER BAKE ,G.E. GAS STOVE ,HOW TO TAKE IT OUT???ALSO I AM TRYING TO TAKE THE IGNITOR FROM BROIL TO PUT IT ON BAKE BURNER TO MAKE SURE IT IS THE IGNITOR WHAT IS WRONG,NEED HELP...


I take the door off and remove the racks. Then I remove the bottom and then the flame spreader. Then the wing nut holding the burner assembly. The ignitor has a quick connect. Be careful not to drop the ignitor or touch the silicone carbide filement. Skin oils cause premature failure. If both ignitors are the round kind (GR403) then you can swap them. e25bfac.jpg

They last 3-5 years depending how much you use your stove.
Disconnect POWER to the stove, remove the screws holding the lower element to the back of the inside of the stove, pull out carefully and remove the 2 screws holding the wires on. Check the element with an ohm meter, it should read 0 (zero or very close) resistance on an ohm meter. You may also take it to a store that sells replacements ($25) and they may check it for you.

Bottom oven will not heat up.


Find the bake ignitor (you may need to remove bottom drawer or oven cavity floor to get to the ignitor). Turn on the bake. If the bake ignitor comes on (starts glowing after a few seconds) - check the amperage on the bake ignitor wires when it's on. If the ignitor is a round style - amperage should be 2.5-3A, if the ignitor is rectangular - 3 - 3.6A. If less than 2.5A or 3A respectively - replace ignitor. If the ignitor does not come on - check the voltage on the ignitor, should be the line voltage 110-120v AC. If there is a line voltage on the ignitor and it's not coming on - replace.
Ignitor part numbers for round style ones: 4342528, WB2X9154, SGR403, 5304401265;
rectangular styles: 12400035, WB13K21, WB2X9998, SGR412, NR020, 5303935066, 814269, 9753108.

Flame from electrice heating unit with range turned off


Your bake element blew out. Easy to replace... turn off the power (unplug) and replace the element by removing two screws holding it into the oven. Then you have two wires to the element and they either push on or have screw on terminals

JGBP33 BAKE IGNITOR


You did not post a complete model number, but this should help:
Take racks out of oven. Remove two screws at the very back of the oven bottom. Lift back side of bottom up and back a bit to remove oven floor. Remove flame spreader (one nut at center). ignitor is at the back left of burner, most likely a WB2X9154 (round style) ignitor. The entire burner can be removed rather easily at this point if you remove the two screws at the front and disconnect the ignitor wire (if you wish to have easier access to ignitor mounting screws.)
