Went to home today and found the oven would not light. Tested the igniter and only drawing 2.9 amps. Bad igniter. Replaced igniter and still would not light. New igniter drawing 3.1 amps. I assumed bad igniter out of box, so I pulled another one out. Same thing. I am assuming that means there is some internal resistance problem in the gas valve, right??

 

No tech sheet in the oven, so if one is available that I could put back in the oven that would be great.

 

Thanks

Make sure the little lever on the side of the regulator hasn't got bumped into the "Gas to oven OFF" position.

 

I'm pretty sure lever raised pointing straight out is ON, resting flat is OFF.

3.1 amps is close enough to the spec that I'm thinking that's probably measurement error.  I can get 0.3 amps variance in the reading just by changing exactly where the wire is positioned within my amp meter jaws.  

 

I think Willie done called the ball on this one.
