The complaint before I replaced the spark electrode on the bake burner was that it would click and spark but no flame, or only stay lit for 30 seconds or less.

 

I replaced the electrode and it does the same thing.

 

The broil works great, the burner on top work great, just no bake burner flame...

 

I have a solid connection between burner and cavity, so I think its grounded, don't know if that matters...?

 

Thanks

Technical Service Pointer #: W10622771

 

Concern:
Under certain circumstances the Bake burner may not ignite. Sparking is taking place but flame is not established

Cause:
•Wiring harness may be pinched at a location between the Bake/Broil igniters and DSI Board.
• DSI Board mounting bracket may be contacting a solder joint on back of the board.
• Positioning of Igniter and gas burner igniter ports may be out of adjustment.
• Igniter (Electrode) deterioration
