i recently replaced an ignitor that no longer worked, did.t glow or even attempt to. noticed a spot where the ignitor wire had touched the metal frame and left a small burn mark. after putti.g in the new ignitor my oven will not turn off, it will go down to short small blue flames but never off. tried unplugging it and it wont turn off untill you close propane valve.
ANSWER Adam, You're on track, When the igniter wire shorted to ground, There was enough voltage to cause the bi metal switch, inside the safety valve, to warp, and it won't close completely. Repalcing the safety valve is the next step. Just Remember, Remove Power to the stove, before you start working on it.
