Default Gas Oven Heats Up Too Slowly
Model Number: SCG20200W   Brand: Jenn-Air   Age: 5 - 10 years   

Appliance Parts from AppliancePartPros.com


The gas oven takes way too long to heat up. There is also a smell of gas at times when the oven is turned on. This just started happening recently.

The broiler appears to work fine. The burners work fine as well.

I removed the lower drawer and the cover panel behind it and located the Oven Valve. It appears that when the oven is on and I wiggle one of the electrical contacts on the Oven Valve I can hear more gas passing through the valve. Before purchasing the $100 part I want to be sure that this is the problem. Anyone experienced this and solved it successfully?

Thanks.

Most likely the problem with your oven is a bad igniter, not the gas valve.
You can learn how the oven igniter works from the one of previous posts here: Oven won't lite?

- The part number for the oven igniter AP205873

- Here are the break down diagrams for the Jenn Air range Model SCG20200W

Default right on the $$$

Gene,
Thank you. Your assessment was spot on. The igniter was bad - cracked as a matter of fact. I replaced it with the one for the Broiler to make sure and the oven works. I will now order an igniter.
Thanks again.
