The gas oven fire is not working. The oven has no brand outside so I can't right now search for a manual. The surface burners clearly say to press and turn, and you hear the ignite working as soon as I press the button and it works well.
The gas oven however does not have this instruction (to press and hold to start ignite). You still have to press a little to turn the knob to the temperature. When I start turning, I hear a click (once) at the beginning and nothing else. The oven does not start and I smell gas. My first assumption is that the igniter is broken, but it's the first time I use an oven that has electric ignite (my previous one had a pilot light).
The unique click I hear when I start turning the knob is the ignite or just the electrical component inside the knob trying to start the ignite?
If the ignite was working (maybe it is, maybe it is not), it would be loud enough to hear it (several loud clicks), just like the surface burners? I don't hear anything after that single click in the beginning.
Is it safe to remove the cover for the gas/ignite and try to turn it on to confirm if the ignite is working or not?
Shouldn't the gas oven have a protection that if the ignite fails, the gas does not come out? I smell gas even though the ignite is supposedly not working.
So far I don't have any idea of the brand/model. Buying an ignite that looks like the one I have is safe to use?
Thank you for any help!
