If the grill is operating, the issue is most likely with the ignition of the lower bake burner. This appliance has a two year warranty on it so it is under warranty still. Knowing this, are you wanting to risk voiding the warranty by attempting to repair it yourself?

This depends on how simple the resolve is. If it is quick and simple I would be happy to do it. If it is complicated then I would use the warranty

I would start by cleaning and verifying the wiring to the lower igniter wiring. If it is dirty, the path to ground may not be strong enough to allow proper spark.

Below the bottom plate in the oven is a spanned plate with a small gas line coming from the back of the oven. On the left side is a coated wire with an enamel collar on it. This wire seems to be severed. Should it be connected to anything?

Yes, that is likely to the igniter electrode, nice work! Can you see the small tab on the electrode where it goes?

Not really, I am feeling something on the underside of athe bake burner like a small hole. If this is not it I cannot see where else it would go

Can you post a picture of what you see?

Ask Your Own Australia Whitegoods Question

That is the spark electrode. Is there a wire at the other end?

it is about 10 mm long

I apologise for drawing this out, it is the time differences between you and I and I also work full time so cannot check my emails until I arrive home.

The other end of that spark electrode should have a wire on it. The picture you sent is the part that sparks to light the burner. Is there a wire on the other end? Can you post a picture with a wider view of that area?

Customer reply replied 5 months ago
I will have to unscrew the bake burner to give you that view. I will have a go at it and get back to you

Thank you.

Ask Your Own Australia Whitegoods Question

That's it, thank you. Remove that wire and set ot back in place and also clean the igniter tip and the burner area it sparks to with sand paper. Does it begin top spark after?
