My maytag oven will allow me to hit Bake, then start (preset at 350degrees for preheating) . The bake igniter will spark, the gas gets released and the oven burner will fire up. However, this will only last a few seconds and never fire up again to continue the preheat cycle. I took the igniter out, I cleaned it(light sandpaper) to remove some corrosion but I only get a few seconds of burn each time. The broiler igniter is different so I can't swap one for the other to test that it is the igniter but does anyone have a suggestion as to what needs to be replaced or tested? This is a DSI(I think) direct spark igniter NOT the glowbar style. The igniter works the first time only and never resparks unless I shut the over off and try another preheat cycle. Any help appreciated.
