When that happens you will generally need a new electrode for the oven to fix the issue, but you can remove the bottom panel in the oven to get to the electrode and use fine sand paper to clean the rod off and the shield tip where the spark is suppose to jump to off. Once it is clean it will often work fine again for awhile, but the permanent fix is a new electrode.

I hope that I have earned a 5 star rating. We are on the honor system here for payment and will receive nothing unless a rating is given.
