We are having a problem with our oven and I hope someone might be to help us.

Whirlpool SF325LEKQ0 4yr old stove.

Oven stopped working but burners worked fine. Ignitor was'nt glowing at all. Put in new ignitor and its glowing cherry red, gas kicks in after about 30sec, but it won't light without causing mini-explosion. Any ideas on what could be wrong?

Possibilities might include an improperly positioned ignitor or some of the gas ports in the burner nearest the ignitor are plugged.

If gas is being released into the burner, the burner should be ignited before the gas can build up in the oven to a level large enough to create a mini-explosion.

I shined a flash light through burner holes and they appear not to be clogged. How would I know if ignitor is not positioned correctly? Is there a specific distance the it needs to be?
