I have a Jenn Air gas wall oven, roughly 12 years old. About 2/3 of the times the oven does not heat up. The broiler does heat up. I took out the bottom panel inside the oven and can see the ignitor is glowing but the gas does not come on. I have read that the ignitor can become weak so that it glows but does not pass enough amps to turn on the gas valve.
How do you replace the ignitor? The wires go through a hole in the back of the oven through some insulation. I can feel where the wire then continues through a hole in a second wall an inch or two back.
How do I get at the wiring harness connector to replace the ignitor? Do I have to pull the oven out of the wall?
ANSWER Hello Mike. You can splice the wire for the unit and use ceramic wire nuts to put the wires together.
