Chit Chat / Re: fgf328fsa oven temp climbs to high

Thanks for the replies, the sensor probed ohm correctly, after talking to customer in person, he explained in more detail, that temp. reading would continually climb and would show this on temp display. Faulty control. Also replaced probe, since it inexpensive, board being so sensitive. repair successful, Customer was Vietnam vet. Honored that he was pleased with the job. Once again thanks for the input on about thermometers.  ;)

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. :thanks:

Looks good to me. I have used the two step process for quite some time. I also have lots linked to my gmail account. A usb key would be much easier.
Two step is on all my devices now, how would the usb affect getting mail on a phone or tablet with no usb, assuming it was setup to use on a pc?

I use the mercury thermometer that's 40-50 years old and it never fails, doesn't need batteries and is very accurate.

have found lots of dial thermometers out of wack  no one wants to spend anything so they buy 1 at the dollar store   i use a thermocouple has very low mass and if you do a temp check   middle of oven   350 is average  400 cut out 300 cut in is pretty typical  seems like normally 50 to 60 deg over and undershoot is what i see
