Oven burner takes a while for it to ignite
« on: November 11, 2012, 07:00:46 PM »
Kenmore Gas Oven Model 790.73052404

The igniter glows red and looks like it gets hot enough. After about a minute, if you shut the oven door kind of hard the burner comes on. Is it the igniter or is it the safety vale that is sticking and opening when the door is shut?

 :thanks:

It's always the ignitor. Your model uses ignitor part # 5303935066
