Hello, Thank you for using this service, I will be helping you with your problem today
can you can you get me the full model #?
Where's it located on the unit?
The igniter is functional as it glows just like the broiler igniter. There is no gas being delivered. If what you say is true I could basicaly light the gas element by hand. Something, a safety sensor maybe, is not allowing gas to the element for the igniter to light. Does the igniter have a sensor for gas delivery? That will shut off gas delivery? The igniter is on when I set the oven temp, but there is no gas being delivered.
And from what I saw of the photos you sent me the igniter doesn't look like the one I have.
There appears to be a tag of some sort under the bottom drawer, although the drawer isn't released like most nowadays. I think the model info quite possibly is on the drawer bottom. I'm not sure but I may have to figure out how to get at the info whether it being taking the drawer apart or tipping the stove on its side to read the paper stuck on the bottom of the drawer. At any rate, it sounds like the best thing to replace is the igniter and hopefully even though the current one is glowing it will solve the problem. My next challenge of course is getting the right igniter without a model number unless I figure out an easy way to get at it under the drawer. I'll check in with you Monday as that will be the day I can attack the problem further.
Understood, the problem is the after market igniter is so delicate and my OEM shield has a low tolerance for fit. That's why I was concerned regarding securing it with a tie before I attached the shield to the oven. My problem came from zip tieing it where it went behind the oven wall. The reason I cut it off was to eliminate the fire issue. I can wrap it on the oven side, attach it properly with no threat of movement, and then cut the tie away. I've got it figured out, with all the issues calculated as this being the second time around. Bummer is, I'll never need to use these skills again!
Thanks for your help Bryan. Experience is what it is!
