My oven takes a long time to ignite and sometimes it won't at all. The element is as bright as it was when I first purchased this oven. When I turn the knob to the temp I want, it clicks and eventually it does go on. It gets to temp, I turn the knob just slightly to see the temp it's at when it clicks. Every time I do that, it shuts off completely even though I still have the knob at a certain temp. I have to turn it back off, then back on. Is it the thermostat or something more? Like I said, the element is very bright still.

ANSWER Hello Bonnie. Test for 3.2-3.6 volts AC at the gas safety valve with the igniter turned on. If the voltage is there, you have a bad safety valve. If the voltage is low, you have a weak igniter and the igniter will need to be replaced. You can test this with a multi-meter TJMA-DMT3. Here is a link on how to use a multi-meter. http://forum.appliancepartspros.com/oven-repair-including-ranges-cooktops/4810-how-check-continuity-ohmmeter.html
