they use different gas valves and different safeties.
dryers uses something like a cad cell eye to see the ignitor glow then open the primary gas valve to test a light. Once lit it opens a secondary valve to continue running.
Stoves use a heat disk in the gas valve. As the ignitor glows it is also starting to worp the safety device in the valve of the stove. As the resistance drops because the ignitor gets brighter more current is sent to the heat disk to the point it will open the valve. Which is why you can get intermitent operation and get customers to say they smell gas now and again.

Yes there are testers just for capacitors. Here are some on Amazon.

Hello all,

   I have a gas burner igniter question.
 Why does a gas dryer burner work, until
 finally the igniter fails - ohms test OPEN
 how ever in a gas stove oven the igniter
 can still glow, but be bad, due to a low
 current draw. I under stand the safety
 in the gas valve sensing the resistance
 of the heated igniter from a lit burner.
 So why can't a gas stove have a flame
 sensor on the burner, like a gas dryer.
 Is there a safety reason for this and why?

  I have had customers question a bad
  igniter saying "But it still glows" I
  respond by saying it's weak. Some
  times even after the installation of
  a new igniter & a lighting oven they
  act like it's a scam, and think that
  you did something to it. 
Range, Oven & Cooktop Repair / Re: Touch Screen error on G2Microven

Have you seen the videos showing how to get behind the touch screen, dust off the board, disconnect and then reconnect the wires?

We pulled out the touch screen, disconnected and reconnected some wires AGAIN.  The touch screen came back to life for a while, but is back to being tempermental.  The "one minute" button works, so the microwave is operational; as does "Popcorn" (which we don't use).  We just cannot navigate to "Melt" or "Defrost." 

As I really do like the variations offered with this microwave oven, I am considering purchasing a control board for $207 to see if that will fix it.  At one point, the touch screen was available for $600, which is prohibitive. 

I wish I had better news for you.  I do think that time is working against us as the replacement parts are getting phased out.
