Hello....our top of the line (we thought) oven heats up very slowly. Took it apart again and the same thing is happening as before....the igniter doesn't seem to glow as brightly or hotly as it should. So it takes a couple of minutes before the flame comes on, and then when it does, it will burn fully for a few seconds then putter up and down weakly, sort of blowing off and on. The last two times when I purchased new igniters, the problem stopped as the new igniters were bright and hot. What would cause a third igniter to begin getting weak again?  Thanks, Bob

Let me add something...I just went up to compare the brightness of my broiler igniter to my bake igniter and they appear the same....but the broiler igniter gets the flame on and it stays nice and steady. The bake flame pitters for a few seconds and then remains on very low....when I tap the regulator the flame jumps up a little....and come to think of it, I believe I have also replaced the regulator once...but nothing changed that time until I got a new igniter

Looking at "brightness" doesn't tell you anything-- you have to measure the current draw through the ignitor. Read this:
