G&S repair
« on: December 01, 2008, 01:33:35 PM »
Hi, I have an older wall gas stove.

Symptoms... when I put the oven on the igniter coil glows red but the gas does not light unless i blow air into chamber.... then the blue flame come onto the gas bar ( forgive me if my terms are incorrect ).  It seems to not get up to temperature very well.

Without a model number, you can  only get a new  bake ignitor if you take the old one in with you to match it up.   That's what you need, a new ignitor.

You can remove the bottom of most stoves and get to it.

get that rear cover off
to the right of the cover appears to be a way to get it off. then take another pic. I like pics. What kind of camera is that. I was looking at some at wall mart. I bet that ain't the 20 dollar one you is using.  :2funny:

after you get the cover off the back then you ought to see a quick plug for that ignitor.

How is the flame burning?,pulling away from the burner when it is finally lit? Are you on LP or natural gas? I have seen spider webs in burners make the gas swirl & not lite right away. With the power off, take a wire and feed it into the burner( the tube the gas goes into,feed into the air shutter area) go in about 6 inches or to the bend. See if you get a web.
