The parts drawing shows two types of ignition systems for your oven, an electronic spark and a glowcoil. Will you please verify which one you have for me?
I HAVE AN ELECTRONIC SPARK TYPE IGNITOR .THE FLAME COMES ON THEN TURNS OFF .AS IF IT HAS REACHED TEPERATURE THEN RESTARTS
OK. Thank you. The ignitor wire, in addition to providing a spark, acts as a flame proofer. It needs to be cover half way by the pilot flame to send the proper signal to the ignition module. Over time, the wire moves away from the flame, due to flexing from heating and cooling. The solution is to gently bend the wire back to its original position.
Doing this usually solves the problem, but if it does'nt, please post back to me.
