My oven will not lite. It looks like a thermocoupler tube that goes to the burner. Would it be the igniter?

I have ordered this part and it is showing that my original ignitor has been discontinued and this one is being used in place of it. my old ignitor was much smaller. how would this part install in place of the old?
Answer Hello Amy,
If your model number is RSK3700UW, which is the closest thing I could find to the listed model number, the 786324 is correct and it will fit. You will just have to remove the old one and try it and you may be surprized that it is as easy as it is. One note, on this type of burner, you should tie a string to the wires before pulling the old ones out. This gives you an easy routing of the wires for the new ignitor during the re-installation since the larger ignitor takes away from the routing space.
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
