The ignitor comes on in 23 seconds
That seems to be a bit long to me so I tried to find if there's a mention of it in any of my gas range manuals. There's not, or at least I couldn't find one. I grabbed one out of the back of my truck and used a cheater cord and amp meter. It reached 3.7 amps and max glow in 4 seconds. My sister has a gas range so I called her and had her open the oven door (you can see the igniter glow in her oven) turn on the oven and see how long before oven ignites. She said about 6 seconds. Check the amp draw on the igniter:Normal would be between 45-60 seconds.
