Default How to determine if an oven ignitor is bad?
Model Number: JGBS20   Brand: GE   Age: 5 - 10 years

According to the troubleshooting guide that came with the range, I'm assuming the oven will not operate because the ignitor has failed. The gas is on and the top burners work fine. I've pulled the ignitor and the burner from the oven. How can I determine if the ignitor has failed? Will a continuity test work?

Thanks for your help.
