It sounds like you are describing a glow bar ignition system like the one shown in this video: Gas Ignition Operation . If you have that type of ignition system on your oven and the igniter glows but the burner does not light, then replacing the igniter will often fix your ignition problem.

You can order parts from this page: Range Parts . Be sure that you unplug the range and shut off the gas supply before accessing and replacing internal components.

If you have a pilot light ignition system or a spark igniter, reply with additional details and the full model number of your range. We will assist you further once we receive more information.

Hello Christopher. Thanks for posting that model number. I looked at the technical information for that exact range. It does have the glow bar ignition system that is described in the above response that I posted. If that glow bar igniter is not glowing when you set the oven in the bake mode, then you could have a problem with the digital electronic control board, the glow bar igniter, the safety gas valve or the wiring in that ignition circuit. If the igniter is glowing, then you most likely failure is that you have a bad igniter (even though it is glowing). If you want to further diagnose the failure, reply with additional details such as whether the igniter glows when the oven is set in the bake mode and we will assist you further.

A:

The click is probably the relay on the electronic oven control board closing to send voltage through that ignition circuit. Since the igniter does not glow, I recommend that you UNPLUG the range and check the wiring connections on that electronic control board. The image below shows a wiring diagram for your range with that ignition circuit traced in yellow. If you have a volt ohm meter, you can check for continuity through that circuit. You should measure between 20 and 400 ohms of resistance through that circuit when the igniter is a room temperature (probably around 40 ohms). If that ignition circuit has continuity, then your likely failure is the relay in the electronic oven control board. Even though it is clicking, it may not be applying voltage through that circuit. You may need to check the voltage going out of that control board to verify that failure. NOTE: Use extreme caution when checking live voltage. Wear electrical safety gloves and safety goggles when checking live voltage. UNPLUG the range as soon as live testing is completed. If that control is not sending voltage through that ignition circuit in the bake mode then the control will need to be replaced. If that ignition circuit does not measure continuity then you can check the wiring and the continuity through the igniter and the safety gas valve (with the range UNPLUGGED). The igniter should measure between 20 and 400 ohms at room temperature. The safety gas valve should measure between 1 and 5 ohms. I hope that this additional information helps. If you need more assistance, reply with additional details.
