My husband installed this igniter today. The igniter itself turns on, a red color, but the oven does not come on. Are we supposed to let the igniter alone for a while before we try to turn the oven on, or could something else be the problem?
ANSWER Hello Maria,
If the ignitor is only turning red, the issue will be the ignitor. You see, for the gas valve to open, the ignitor has to turn almost white hot. Red means the ignitor is not pulling enough current for the gas valve to open.
