I have a GE Gas Oven, and the lower igniter quit working around 5 months ago. I replaced the igniter with one from this website (model WB13T10001) and it worked fine. Today, the oven popped the circuit breaker as soon as the "start" button was pushed after the temperature was set. Checked the breaker and it is OK. The burners light fine and the electronics work fine, it just kills the breaker when the oven "start" button is pushed. My guess is a short in the igniter. How can I check this?
This does not sound like it would be caused by the igniter shorting out but possibly the wiring to the igniter. You will want check the wiring in your unit for a broken connection.
