13 posts in this topic

I have an lp range/oven. all of a sudden today, the oven won't light. the burners on top ignite, but no oven. Any ideas on how I can trouble shoot this myself?

Does it have a pilot light with a thermocouple, or some kind of electronic igniter? This isn't a "light with a match" type is it?

no, it's in my home. It doesn't have a pilot. I lit the broiler, and that lit right up. so I'm thinking igniter?? but how do I get to it and are replacement parts available?

Yes, your ignitor is bad. Replacement parts are available. Universal igitor made by maytag will fit almost any stove, Part # 124000035 ( not sure on # of 0's) if a flat ignitor. Round one by whirlpool will fit rest. Ignitor is under oven floor when you remove it. Usually 2 screws in back and then bottom comes out.

i removed that floor yesterday, but didn't see the ignitor.....it looks like i'd have to take off a few more screws to get down to the burner.

there are 2 types of ignitors, if you look at the broil burner when it ignites it should glow.the bake burner has the same glow coil as the broil so you should see the same coil and its located right where the bake burner turns toward the front of the stove. you need to remove the bake burner by pulling out the bottem drawer and there should be 2 screws at the very back of the stove and there will be 1 screw in the very front of the stove. those 3 screws hold the burner in place. there will be 2 wires coming from the ignitor, take those off. they will be back under where you removed the bottem drawer. there are 2 types of ignitors, a round one and a flat one. if you can get me the model no. i can look it up for you, i am a tech for g.e., if you cant do it yourself you are looking at about 240.00. if you want to put your e-mail address on here i can help you out.jeff

Hey, thanks for the help Jeff... I actually got the old one out, but couldn't find a replacement. would a plumber have one, or do I have to order one. My burner didn't come out that easily, but I got it!! now I just need to know where to get a new ignitor. thanks again. rverdeck@earthlink.net

if the ignitor is round, pt no. is wb2x9154, i know dey appliance carries them. i dont know whats out in hutch. also dont throw the old one away, you will need the connections off the old one. just cut them off and wire nut them to the new one. the new one will come with 2 ceramic wire nuts. if your ignitor is square i will need your model number. price will vary btwn 50.00- 80.00. good luck

    • Apparently it took one to know one
    • Well, yes and no.  When the distillery opened they hired Steve Nally of Makers Mark fame and all of the ingredients come from the local area.  The facility is cool, the bottle and label are cool... it had everything going for it.  But for some reason the partners decided on releasing it earlier than planned, and about this time Nally (who the story claims did not agree with this decision) parted ways with them.  Because of promotion there was a lot of interest and advanced sales and some dealers were limited to a case or two.  But it really bombed hard, and some batches (the bottles show batch numbers) were way worse than others. It didn't turn out like they planned it would and after a while most of the sales were to tourists. On the bright side, after a few years WW admitted they had a problem and began blending batches (and likely made other changes as well), and even had representatives travel the state giving free samples of the "new" WW.  It has improved slightly, but many folks still have the bad taste in their mouth.  A dealer I know told me the liquor commission in Cheyenne (all sales go through them) has something like 500 cases in the warehouse and it's a slow mover.      I actually ordered a case so I could give it out to customers, as luck would have it the bar I ordered through only got 2 cases on that first order, so all of the pre-order people just got a couple of bottles, and they kept a few back for stocking the bar.  For a couple of days patrons were sampling it at the bar and it began to get the thumbs down. I actually cancelled my order for the remaining case.  I did make it halfway through one bottle, but wound up tossing the rest.  I kept the unopened one just because it might be worth something in 20 or 30 years.   Yep nice color alright. The flavor is slightly sweet with a hint of oak, vanilla and kerosene, and it has a burn.  The first glass is sort of deceiving and after the second the flavor becomes unpleasant.  Most believe it's just too young and needed the full aging.

    • Come on Duff, you gotta know it was just picking one liar over the other. The difference being that there is a small chance his lies were not generated by the machine.  In the end it doesn't matter what he says but what he can get others to do.    I gave Barry a chance to do the job and I extend the same to Donald. My guess though is that what he will bring will not be what his voters are looking for but at times we need to go through that to get to where we want to be.   In the meantime maybe tanning booths will make a comeback
    • I am more baffled by the people who think the far right and far left are somehow different and not capable of ignorant acts. Like somehow or somewhere the extremists of your party are somehow better than the extremists of the other, hopefully some people are having their eyes opened.

      Even better there are those out there that think if only the left/right could take over and make things they way they are "suppose" to be would suddenly fix everything. Like alienating half the country is going to be good for America. The further the country gets torn in half the more it looks like there is only one place to to go and that is back to the middle where people work together. Of course that would put a lot of the media out of work but it is more clear than ever they are more of a hazzard than anything.
    • If I remember correctly Ted Cruz did call him a pathological liar during the primaries.
    • How anybody can believe any word that comes out of that pumpkin pie hole is beyond me.   Y'all got duped by a compulsive liar. At least he has that part of being a politician down pat, but for it to work ya need to slip some truth in there now and again.
