The oven clicks like it is trying to ignite but it wont light. I pulled the bottom and flame spreader out and tried to light oven again but didn't see a spark from the igniter. It did however light using a match. Is the igniter the problem or is there another part that could cause it to not light?
ANSWER Hi Joe. Use a volt/ohm meter part #@ TJMA-DM1 to assist you in your diagnostics. A cold igniter part # 9758079 ohms out to no less then 50 ohms to 500 ohms. If lower then it is shorted, if higher it is open. If you can see a crack in the middle it is open. It is a very common issue with gas ovens. Thank You.
