Burners working fine. Oven and broiler stopped working. Installed new ignitor Tues 4/26/10. Oven worked fine, used to make dinner, cookies, etc. Can't remember if we used broiler...think we did. Now, Friday 4/30, Oven and broiler not working AGAIN! Burners are still fine, as always. What could cause this? It seems crazy!

Your oven used a hot surface (glow ignitor) ignition system. A first step in diagnosing problems with such a system is observing what the ignitor is doing when the oven should be heating, as explained at the following link:

Ignitor is doing nothing. No glowing, no clicking, no gas smell, just nothing.

Thanks for link. It is very helpful. When installing, one of the wires was short. I'm concerned that maybe it's not making a connection behind stove, even though it WAS working. Don't know what wiring looks like behind stove, so don't know if it's even worth taking apart to see it. I mean, that issue might be RARE so I'd be better off checking switch, maybe?
