Re: previous threads
I have an gas oven that takes 5 minutes minimum to ignite after the igniter glows. How do I properly test the igniter for proper amperage draw (3.0 to 3.2 ?)

I would replace the igniter without any further tests. 5 minutes to ignite the burner is definitely way too long.

The current drawn by the igniter should be more than 3.2 amps.

1st remove storage drawer. 2nd locate igniter wiring it comes through the bottom of the oven above the gas valve two wires only. 3rd Unplug the stove and remove one of the wire nuts, separate the wires.4th set your digital multimeter to AMPS ac and move the red test wire to the 10a spot on your meter.5th hook your test leads red and black to each wire you split earlier in step 3. 6th Plug stove back in, turn oven and wait 2 minutes and observe meter. A good igniter will have a reading of 3.2 to 3.6 on the meter. As you can see in the picture this igniter is bad.Gas valve will not open with a reading of less than 3.2 Fix= replace igniter. I bought one online for $18.00 including shipping, all the stores wanted 50 to 75 dollars.Remember to unplug stove when changing any parts or when disconnecting any wiring.
