The oven just went out.The Igniter would not light. I got a new igniter and went to change and found the wire burnt in two on the old igniter. I changed it anyway. The oven still will not work. The igniter still will not light. I checked the ohms of new one to old one they are about the same around 72. There is 120 volts down to the safety valve with oven control knob on 200. There is no continuity across the safety valve terminals (reading OL on meter). What keeps the igniter from lighting?

Thank you for your help. I did get the recomended voltage once the ingitor was installed. It also appears that the gas valve is working properly. I was wondering if moving the ignitor about an inch forward would help with the slow ignition issue. It seems the glowing part of the coil is back a bit far behind the slit that runs across beneath the burner unit. If you blow on the burner it lights or if you hold a match to it. But there is a noticable smell of gas and a slight hissing sound and then after quite a while it lights. Any thoughts? Jim

The way this is wired is there are two wires that come down to the oven and hook to the gas valve with spade connectors. The wires to the ignitor are pig tailed into those wires so that the current coming to the ignitor and the valve is 120. I tested by connecting my meter to those spade connectors when they were detatched from the gas valve and the the oven switch on. Would I have gotten a different reading if the spade connectors were plugged into the valve? Thanks, Jim

Following up on your recommendations for using multi meter, I checked the voltage with the ignitor turned on and got a 120.4 volt reading. Any thoughts? Thanks, Jim.

Is there a way to test the oven safety valve to find out if it is working and the problem is elsewhere? After replacing the ignitor (which was burned out) the oven lit but the flame was lazy and burned for quite a while after turning it off. Then it wouldn't light at all.
