Hi all new here- had an issue where our oven just failed to get hot. Did a BUNCH of research, talked to techs and they all came to conclusion that igniter was bad. Bought igniter yestrday to the tune of $50, replaced this a.m. and same thing. oh yeah broiler works and ignites just fine.

Oven now goes to 159* (before it stopped at 100* on LCD)
and Im bummed and confused??!!

What next? Do I need a thermostat, a board?

This is going to get expesnive if I cant nail it down. I do have a ohmmeter if needed.

Do I need to leave the bottom of oven off to see if igniter is glowing or getting hot?

My wife wants to cook again,

thanks
Doug

Get your ohm meter, and check the resistance of the glowbar (ignitor) you just replaced. Should read between 50-150 ohms. Post results

do I need the oven set to ON and where do I want to probe / check on the igniter? there arent really any connecters on it (just spliced new one in with the ceramic wire nuts)


PS >>the NEW igniter is a (pt # AR404 on the box) hopefully this is correct?

thanks,
Doug

Take off the wire nuts and disconnect the wires and take an ohm reading from the bare wire ends of the ignitor.

That part is fine, they only make 2 kinds round and square, so if you took out a round ignitor, you replace it with a round ignitor.

ok, make sure it's an ohm reading and not a volt reading

after checking further with the lower drawer pulled out, I found that the other wire conected to the gas valve (from the old connecteion at the igniter) had a tear in the sheath and caused it to short. After re-soldering and heatshrink, the oven fired right up. Apparently it had rubbed on the rearsheetmetal and torn the shething of the wire.


thanks for all the help abadfish66...
