My control panel went out on the stove. Purchased a new one and installed it. When I powered up the stove, the broiler ignitor began to glow right away, then arced and blew burning the wire in half. I thought the wire may have had a bare spot in the sheath so I purchased a new ignitor and replaced it. Powered up and got the same results ... blew the new ignitor after a few seconds. I don't see any obvious frayed wires or anything that looks out of order. I don't want to blow the new control panel. Can anyone help me troubleshoot?

Has this Range been working OK up till now at this location ?
There's no way the Ignitor (or wiring) can instantly burn-out, unless this Gas Range is wired for 240v instead of 120v.

Check your control board for mis-wiring. You may have put a hot(L-1) wire on a neutral terminal.
