Testing a fault igniter on your range or oven

A faulty igniter can cause a poor air to fuel mixture and create a gas smell while running the oven. The igniter itself should draw more than three amps, glow red and create ignition within 60 seconds or less. The oven burner itself should have an even flame on either side. The flame itself should have minimal orange tipping. This is an indicator that the air to fuel mixture and gas supply quality is good. After the ignition is achieved, the igniter will continue to stay on until the oven reaches temperature and cycles off.
