Hi...Bob Here..Yes..More than likely the igniter is faulty..You can check this with a simple circuity tester..Remove the bottom inner floor of the oven..Use the tester to check for power in the wire harness leading to the igniter..#136..It is a simple replacement..The igniter has a plastic connector..Remove the old..Replace with the new..Thanks Bob

Thanks Bob, all sounds right. Does the igniter also have to reach temperature before the gas will flow to the burner?


My biggest problem is that one of the screws holding the igniter will not come out. It just turns and will not unscrew. I'll need to cut the screw off to get the igniter out so I'm trying to find a way to do that.


Either way I should be able to test the power to the plug, right?
