Hotpoint oven not heating


M

Mike J

Hi, We have a 11 year old Hotpoint automatic pilotless iginiton oven.
Over the last few months, we have smelled gas when we turned it on.
The gas smell would go away once the oven heated up several minutes
after being turned on. Just a few days ago, the oven stopped heating.
The only thing that seems to be working is the glow bar. It glows
and there is a gas smell but the oven will not heat. The smell goes
away once the oven is off. Does anyone have any thoughts at what the
problem could be?

Thanks,
Mike

*Sounds* like a weak hot surface ignitor may be your trouble maker! If
it is drawing too little current the gas valve will not fully open or
the ignitor will just sit there glowing with no oven working.
