Oven Bake is intermittent.

It has an electrode spark ignition.

Sometimes it sparks once and lights right up. The next time it won't.

Is there anything else that consistently fires this ignitor?

Or does it just sound like a tired igniter?

maybe this will help...your oven should have an igniter like on the video...the electrodes are on the burners and not used for "bake"
I am 18 still in vocational and high school last year of high school though. I grew up around appliances my father Gerald Hughes owned The Appliance Village based out of muskogee oklahoma.

Sorry, but you're way off the mark here. This oven DOES have an electrode igniter in the oven.

Check this out...

That's the part that lights the oven Bake.

Maybe you've not seen this before, they're not what I usually see either.

... Oven Bake is intermittent.

1) tech sheet depends on missing last digit of model number
2) Has this Oven worked OK up till now at this location ?
Any Household new wiring or connections ?
Check for proper Wall Outlet polarity and ground

Why replace the lower burner and electrode?

Electrode is available separately.

This unit has worked fine where it is. Nothing changed. No electrical work done. Broiler works fine. Surface units work fine.

Visually check the stregth of the broil spark as you turn the oven on for bake (both spark at the same time). Symptoms described above could indicate a bad (weak) spark module.
