So the oven won't light at all without turning on a top burner does it sometimes? If you turn the oven on do you see the glow in the bottom but the burner doesn't light?

If it was the ignitor why does it heat up sometimes. would this also affect it not keeping the correct temperature?
Expert:  Bryan replied 6 years ago.
Yes this would also affect the temperature at the oven isn't relighting when it needs to, and the reason it happens sometimes is the igniter gets weak and sometimes doesn't draw enough amps to open the safety valve in the oven, this is a real common problem on these and replacement igniter will fix your issue, we do a lot of these, hope this helps, thanks Bryan

Thanks is it available at local stores like sears or home depot?
Expert:  Bryan replied 6 years ago.
Sears probably won't have it in their stores but they can order it for you, you can get it faster on line in a couple of days, I know Home Depot won't have it, it is a local appliance supply parts store in your area they will carry it, thanks, Bryan
