I have a natural gas oven. The top burners work fine, however the stove stopped working. I do not smell gas nor hear gas going through any lines. At times the pilot turns red, but no flame. Is this the regulator?

Minnie for Model Number 31211XAW

ANSWER Hello Minnie, If the ignitor is only getting red, it is probably the issue. When the ignitor draws the 3.2 to 3.6 amps of current required to open the safety valve, it will turn orange or almost white hot. There will also be an area or spot on the grey ceramic ignitor material. The best way to test the ignitor is with a clamp on ampmeter TJCL1100. The factory says you can test for resistance, but since heat increases resistance and the ignitor gets so hot, the cold resistance test is not reliable.
