Power is on oven will not work, tried doing self clean it appears to work but shuts off in less than 1 minute. Seems to be ignite but suspicious something else is going on. Is it the igniter?
Answer Hello Graham. Test for 3.2-3.6 volts AC at the gas safety valve with the igniter turned on. If the voltage is there, you have a bad safety valve. If the voltage is low, you have a weak igniter and the igniter will need to be replaced. You can test this with a multi-meter TJMA-DMT3. Here is a link on how to use a multi-meter. http://forum.appliancepartspros.com/oven-repair-including-ranges-cooktops/4810-how-check-continuity-ohmmeter.html
I am looking for an oven ignitor that will fit my GE gas stove model # JGBP26GEJ6AD.

Hello. Trying to find correct oven bake igniter for Amana Agds901ww. Current bake igniter installed in oven has ceramic bad approx 1.5 inches long. Replacement part has longer ceramic. What is the correct part number to order?
Answer Cynthia, according to the model number supplied the manufacturer replacement igniter is part number 786324. This replacement may look different however, it is a functional equivalent to the original and will work on your model AGDS901WW. Thanks!
The oven comes on and heats, and gets to temp. At higher temp the oven will shut off and not turn back on. I believe the igniter is "worn out" and fails at higher temps. or, is it more likely the thermometer/thermostat?
Answer Hello Mike,
As long as the ignitor is getting between 3.2 to 3.6 amps then it would be fine. You may want to check your oven temp sensor. If the sensor is reading improperly it will cause unit to possibly not cycle back on.
My oven does not light.
Answer Hello Ron,
Check the breaker. Check for power at the receptacle. Check for the ignitor glowing. if the ignitor glows, check the amperage draw by placing the clamp on amp meter onto one of the wires going to the ignitor. This has to read 3.2 to 3.6 amps of current. If it doesn't, replace the ignitor 9758079. If it does, replace the safety valve W10293048.
