Hi all:

 

I've followed troubleshooting advice I've read here and elsewhere, but I'm not super electrically-minded so I'd appreciate any feedback on whether I need to do something else.

 

The stovetop works but the oven won't ignite, no gas flow.  When I turn the oven dial I hear a click right at the dial and the oven-on indicator light next to the clock lights up.  The ignitor does not glow.

 

I got a clamp meter and tested one of the ignitor's wires for amperage, there was 0 amperage.  (Possible operator error, this is my first time testing this way.  I can't think of anything else in my house I could use to test the clamp meter/my technique)

 

Then I detached the ignitor and tried to check for continuity by jamming the probes into its quick-disconnect thingy.  No continuity.

 

I checked the voltage coming from the stove to the quick-disconnect (on the stove side) and it read about 120V.

 

So, I think this means the ignitor is bad, but should I be checking anything else?

 

Thanks for any help you can offer!

Ignitor should read somewhere less that 1000 OHMs at room temperature.

If infinite reading, it may be cracked.

Thanks, RegUS, it does read at infinite.  It does not appear cracked, at least not to me. 

 

Do you think it's time to order a new ignitor, or is there some control panel thing I need to check?

If you got 120 volts at the disconnect where ignitor plugs in with oven in bake mode then you have a bad ignitor.When you shut oven Dial off you should read zero volts

I didn't meter it with the dial on Off.  I've already shoved the stove back against the wall--should I go pull it out and meter that?
