Thanks, glad it helped!
Your troubleshooting guide for diognosing ignitors, safety valves etc. it great!!
The ignitor is not polarity sensitive so it doesn't matter if you switch the wires, just make sure they're going to the right places.

Now there's a faint gas in the oven. The only gas line related thing I touched during this experience was the on/off lever on the regulator during initial troubleshooting. I've checked the obvious, and seem to have tight connections. I then turned off the regulator lever and let the air in the oven clear for an hour or so, no smell. Within 20 seconds of flipping the lever back on I detected the smell again.
In your experience, can gas leak around the on/off mechanism on the regulator? Or, can a safety valve leak? Short of buying a gas sniffer, how can I find the leak.

Or it could just be that you're low on gas. If you're on propane, the ethyl mercaptan smell gets very strong as the tank nears empty.
Or is could be nothing, everything might be normal.
