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

    • Dave, if this many folks are not understanding the question, than maybe the question is unclear.  So rather then rant about it perhaps try rephrasing it.
    •     I believe you said it was "libertarian" drivel, actually, so you dismissed it out of hand...          
    •   You posted about neither.     But if you would read the article, my commentary and TJ's commentary you would know that's not really what the article is about.     You have to be kidding, right? Just about everyone who has an opinion on politics at all is this sort of person. Do you look at social media at all?
    •     Ok, now getting back to whether Trump will win the War on Drugs, do you think he will take any steps at all to decriminalize drugs, such as reclassifying marijuana, and recognizing state laws and programs designed to move towards the decriminalization of drugs?   Or do you think he will take steps to protect vested interests, such as prisons and the pharmaceutical. industry?   Just going off his rhetoric and his choice for a drug czar, I'm guessing he much prefers the latter, and will end up spending a bunch of taxpayer's money, and actually lose ground by continuing on with the brute force/criminalization approach.        
    • Because at the time, I don't have anything better to do.   I posted about the article, and you wanted to talk about the topic.  I posted about the topic and you want to discuss the article.    Which is it?     I support a particular candidate because their positions, taken as a whole, are preferable to me as compared to the other candidate(s).   In a few years I get to do it over.     I don't think there are really that many ardent "rah rah for my party" type folks out there, in spite of what we see on TV, or the occasional people we meet.     So the article is basically drivel, as I said before, based on a false premise.   
    • Borch I just signed up Ryan, Morgan, and me but I only see my name listed in the summary. Do my kids not show up because they don't have hso usernames?  Or did I not enter it right?     Please let me know how to fix it and I'll do so.  Thanks!
    •   Because I think self reflection is good for all of us from time to time.   If you don't wan't to discuss this article, why do you persist in posting here?           No one is disputing that at all. The premise of the author's article is in regards to the hypocrisy of then justifying everything your chosen candidate or party does blindly while vilifying the other candidates or party. It's the "all in" sports like mentality that is being discussed here.  
    • There is a really excellent book called "The Righteous Mind" that approaches this tribalist mindset from an evolutionary psychology standpoint. The author, Jonathan Haidt, does a remarkable job of unpacking why people persist in truly irrational defense of the indefensible - when it's their team doing the stupid stuff. I highly highly highly recommend it to anyone who is interested in lessening the hyperpartisan idiocy we have today.

      The trouble is that the closed-off mindset that lends itself to reflexive support for Obama/Hillary/Trump/whomever also tends to preclude any serious engagement in self-examination that the book is designed to provoke. Really good read, though.
    •   I get what your saying here but I think what Dave is talking about is the willingness of some to blindly follow, without question, their party or candidate. I saw this first hand during the primary with some of my own relatives, for example. I had a SIL who was a huge Bernie backer. The things she said about Hillary were worse than anything said here. As far as she was concerned, Hillary should be tarred and feathered and ran out on a rail. Then Bernie loses the nomination. She then became Hillary's biggest defender. Everything she said about her during the primary was instantly washed away. Even her own husband called her out. She wasn't simply voting for her because she found Trump worse. That's understandable. She defended or at least tried to deflect the issues with Hillary when just a few months prior, she said things that would make even Cooter or Bill say, "man you're harsh on her."   I don't think this is a new phenomenon. I also don't think it's widespread. Like everything else, access to more and diverse information just makes it possible to hear more about it than before. I think human nature causes people to internalize candidates and/.or elected officials. It's a "if you're critical of my candidate, you're critical of me," kind of thinking.   I don't fault anyone for voting for a candidate that one feels best represents their line of thinking. Or even defending their candidate from detractors. I don't think that is what Dave is talking about here. It's also the flipping of political opinions just because the candidate you voted for or support is supporting certain positions. For example, many conservatives opposed BHO's stimulus, including myself. It didn't work  as promised and we just added more on to the debt. So on the campaign trail, Trump also spoke of a stimulus plan that was even more expensive than BHO's and  those same people not only supported it but are justifying it. In summary, one can vote for a candidate without defending everything that person does
