About three years ago replaced a failing oven igniter, no problem.
Few months ago turned on the oven and there was a loud arc and the circuit breaker tripped. After resetting the circuit
breaker several times the arcing noise was coming from the area of the oven igniter. Disconnected the igniter from the
wiring circuit and there was fraying on the igniter wires. Reset the breaker and the stove functioned normally, The cook top
worked fine and the broiler worked fine.
Ordered a new oven igniter, plugged it into the circuit and when the power was turned on the igniter started glowing,
the thermo-couple opened, the gas flowed.and ignited.
Problem, the oven stays on and can't be turned off. The oven keypad is unresponsive.
Unplugged the igniter and the keypad controls, turn on, set temp, worked fine.
Any suggestions?
