Default Safety issue after oven repair
Model Number: SF368LEPW0   Brand: Whirlpool   Age: 1 - 5 years

Well no one answered my other post. I hope someone will help with this one. I am a disabled mother of a 5 year old. My husband works 6 to 7 days a week. He also is not a fix it guy in any capacity. I have always done these type repairs. I have been disabled since 2006. I found the igniter wire had been chewed to the metal wire in one area and to the rubber type insulation in another. I used electric tape to cover the exposed areas and then wrapped it in tin foil. I wasn't sure if its insulated to protect it from the heat of the oven or because the wire itself gets really hot. I felt the foil could work to either protect or prevent fire if something does get too hot. Do you think this is okay? The oven is working fine now and is lighting on the first spark from the igniter. If I need something else to put over the wire that is there what can you use? Can I get that type of insulated wire and use a connector to put them together. Thanks. CA

Replace the igniter, You cant use tin foil to insulate ANYTHING with 120V going through it!!!!

JFYI. It has a spark electrode not a glow ignitor. It has more than 120 volts going through its wire... but minuscule amperage.

I agree the foil should go and it would be best if the electrode's wire lead was replaced. If anywhere near the heat of the oven, the electrical tape will melt... especially if ever used on self clean where it might even burn up!
