The igniter below the oven floor becomes weak and does not open the valve as quickly and completely as it should. This is very common. If you replace the bake igniter, you will once again enjoy speedy ignition and heating! Access is gained by removing the oven floor. All connections simply unplug and plug in, making for an easy repair!
