I have installed the new oven ignitor as suggested but now it takes anywhere from 30 seconds to a minute for the gas to come on. The ignitor glows right away. The oven used to kick in with in seconds is there something else wrong?

Cory for Model Number mgr4452bds

ANSWER Hello Cory, The ignitor has to heat up. As it gets hotter, it will draw more and more current. Until it draws 3.2 to 3.6 amps, the gas valve cannot open to allow gas to enter the burner. I don't think you have a problem. You probably just didn't notice that it took this long before.
