Problem solved, and was indeed the ignitor. It was drawing 2.8 amps. New one installed and is drawing 3.6 on the button. Ignition and full flame in 45 seconds.

The noisy flame was caused by the air shutters being wide open. This I have to attribute to jostling during our kitchen remodeling.

Thanks again for the advice!

I have to *sheepishly* admit that, although I work in computers for a living (Mainframes mostly), I've never posted anything on YouTube.

Guess I'll have to check out that forum. :blush:

I will get the ignitor and get it installed before it becomes a sfaety issue.

Many thanks for all of the insights. :thumbsup:

Well, I dutifully did my timings just a little while ago:

1.) Turned oven on to 350.
2.) "Dink" (relay?) sound at :05
3.) Ignitor glow at :25
4.) Gas flow and flame ignition at 1:30

Flame is still noisy, more noisy with the oven door open of course, like there's a draft or something's dirty, and the smell of gas until it really gets going.

After that, all's normal. Oven temp. is within a couple of degrees of an oven thermometer.

Thanks for both replies.

It's hard to tell how long the ignitor glows because I can't see it. But, when I turn on the oven, I hear the "dink" of what I believe is the ignitor almost instantly, the flow of the gas after a few seconds and the ignition after a several more. I'll have to pay extra special attention this evening. Could very well be that the gas is flowing too long before being lit, resulting in the pronounced odor.
