My Repair & Advice
My wife said "the oven doesn't work". So I observed that the igniter never glowed after the oven was turned on for preheat. I unplugged the oven, removed the bottom drawer, reached in and unplugged the clip to the lower igniter, and used a multimeter (set on Ohms) to check the resistance in the igniter itself, and confirmed there was no reading--meaning circuit broken in the igniter.
I ordered the igniter, it came in 2 days (fantastic shipping!) and replaced it (2 8mm bolts). Turned the oven on to preheat and immediately saw the glow, then the gas came on and the oven fired up. Good to go!
