OK, the boiler still works just not the bake.I took the oven apart and notice that bake ingnitor looked as if it was fried. I place an order for a replacement part but my question is; Do i have to splice the wire together it did not look like a plug and play action.

OK, the ignitor arrived today and I installed it and it still did not work. Can i possible have a bad part or is there a way of testing it to see if its really defective.

The Ignitor should stay "glowing" anytime the Gas / Flame is ON.

Did the old and/or new Ignitor "glow" during that time OR at all ??

:kopkrab:

neither old nor new one "glowed" ?

with Range Power Cord un-plugged from Wall Outlet,

measure resistance from each side of Ignitor to the Neutral pin of the Power Cord.

may be about 400 OHMs or more.

Here's a typical diagram of the range power cord power block. This is where the power cord connects to the range.

If you don't get 400ohms, them either the ignitor is broken, connected wrong, or there's some other wiring problem in the range.

OK, so if get 400ohms or more the power supply is ok if not the ignitior is probably broken or the power supply connection is bad.. The old ignitor i took out should it have still glow orange or not because it did not.. The installation of the new is it possible to be be connected wrong by cutting the old one off and splicing the new one on. Should it be mounted on a certain way. Thanks for all your help.

This statement reveals to me that I must make the following recommendation because you may cause to harm to the appliance or yourself:

Call a professional appliance tech to troubleshoot this problem for you.

...TGF363AUD Tappan Gas range :whistling:

should be about 400 OHMs between one or the other of the Ignitor wires to the Neutral (large, flat) Pin of the 120v Power Cord
