My oven suddenly quit working. From what I've read, it's most likely the ignitor. I have pulled the ignitor out and the Molex connector on the cable is a blob of melted plastic. I had to cut the ignitor wires to remove it. Is the melted plug a possible cause of the ignitor not working? Can I check this before I replace the ignitor? If it is the ignitor after all, can I cut the melted end off the supply wires as well as the new ignitor and just use small wire nuts? Does polarity matter? Thanks!

Remposs for Model Number 9122VUV

ANSWER Hello Remposs. Yes, just cut the melted connector off and hard wire the igniter into the unit. Use small ceramic wire nuts for the job. There is no polarity involved here.
