My GE gas range comes up to temp fine then starts to re-ignite causing mini blasts inside the oven. GE replaced the ignitor but the oven still keeps re-igniting while in use.I am scared the oven could blow. It gets hot fine then smells like gas and has mini blasts especially when you open the door. Thanks in advance.
ANSWER Roy, Before you replace anything, do you have the same issue when the broil burner is used ? We wouldn't expect the new igniter to have an issue, but a loose connection in the wiring, or a dirty or defective bake burner WB16T10022 The flame on the burner, in the area of the igniter must be large or long enough to heat the igniter enough to maintain the resistance in the circuit to keep the oven safety valve open and maintain the flame.
