Please forgive my "anti parts swapper" attitude, but what can go bad on a spark ignitor if it is physically in tact?
My thought exactly, that is why I asked for advice BEFORE I replaced this ignitor:
but would like to know if there is anything else I can test before I spend $50 on a part that does not need to be replaced (like that ever happens in the automotive world )
poor ground on burner i have had 1 everything worked but no light. could light it with a lighter and it worked great. it was warranty so i ordered a new burner and the igniter mounting bracket was twisted slightly. replace burner and it worked fine. worked ok for 6 months then just quit??
If that is the case, couldn't I clean the ground contact point on the burner and oven instead of replacing it? While I had it removed, I did not see any rust or anything that would cause a poor grounding issue, but I can give that a shot when I get home from work tonight.
Any other thoughts would be greatly appreciated.
