My range is about 3 years old. About a 1 yr ago the burner for the lower (bake) part of the oven would randomly shut off while baking. There was the clicking sound but no re-igniting to keep the oven at it's cooking tempuratures. I determined it was the igniter and replaced it. Now it's doing the same thing again. It also does this while I'm trying to start the oven, clicking sound, but no ignition. Problem seems to have gotten worse in the last two weeks. Are these igniters so cheap that I have to replace them every year or is there something else wrong with my oven?
ANSWER Hello Carol. Check and see if the igniter is dirty and if it is sparking. If it is not sparking, you will need to test and see if it reads closed for continuity. If so, you may have a bad spark module W10331686. If it is open, you will need to replace the igniter 9758079. You can test this with a multi-meter TJMA-DMT3. Here is a link on how to use a multi-meter. Hope this helps.http://forum.appliancepartspros.com/oven-repair-including-ranges-cooktops/4810-how-check-continuity-ohmmeter.html
