The oven will not light. The igniters glow, but only draw 2.7 amps and they are to draw 3.3 to 3.6 amps to allow the gas valve to open. Would I be correct in thinking the igniters need to be replaced?

ANSWER Hello Joe You are correct. There has to be enough current drawn by the ignitor to build a strong enough electromagnetic field in the coils to open the gas valves. If the amperage draw is low, the ignitor is normally weak and in need of replacement.
