I changed out the igniter on the above oven. The old one had some melting at the plastic connector; I figured something had shorted out there. New igniter lasted through 1 1/2 pizzas before going south. At this point the connector had melted quite a bit more (wasn't able to disconnect it). Swapped out the igniter again, but this time it still didn't work. The gas valve doesn't have continuity on the bake side, so guessing that's the culprit? I'm trying to figure out if I have power to the valve, but am not sure how it's wired.
1. How can I test to see if I'm getting the proper voltage from the control board?
2. Any harm in swapping the bake/broil side wires? If I swap the bake wires onto the broil side, and my ignitor then works and the broil valve opens, then the valve is the culprit...
3. Why did my connector melt twice?

Check for 120 volts where the bake igniter connects to the electrical connector when you have it set to BAKE and turned ON.

What is the part number of the BAKE igniter you replaced and where did you get it from?

Here's the BAKE igniter for your model:
Igniter WB13T10045


On this model you can swap the BROIL and BAKE igniters, they both use the same part number.
