After replacing the oven ignitor, my oven now "pops". It is like small explosions. Is it possible that the recently replaced ignitor is faulty? There were no issues before ignitor replacement. Stove top and broiler work correctly.

Did you use this igniter?

GE WB2X9154 Round Style Oven or Broiler Igniter - AppliancePartsPros.com

These aren't the same as the flat igniters. They put out different voltages than the flat ones do and are not interchangeable.

Make sure the burner tube is sitting on top the gas valve correctly and make sure the igniter mounting isn't bent out too far.

Yes, that is the part I have. I will check to see if the igniter mounting is bent out. Thank you for your help.

I checked the placement of the igniter and decided to take it out and reinstall it. Afterwards I turned the oven on 250 degrees and no popping noises. Later in the day I went to use the oven to cook dinner (setting it at 350 degrees) and when it first ignited it was a loud swoosh then I opened the door and saw flames. I did notice while working on the igniter that the part # on it was GR403. Is this a direct replacement for WB2X9154??
