Hi, Robert and the usual suspects are:
1. Fouled spark plugs.
2. Severely discharged or a damaged battery, should have 12.5 volts or better and be able to pass a load test if necessary.
3. Check battery terminals for damage or corrosion, check the battery cables at "BOTH" ends for loose, corroded, or broken connectors, "INSIDE" and outside the cable harness, perform connector wiggle test and check cables with an ohmmeter if necessary.
4. Loose connection at ignition coil or plug between ignition sensor and module.
5. Spark plug cables in bad condition, shorting / leaking, spark plug cable connections loose.
6. Faulty ignition coil or ignition / electronic module
7. Faulty CKP, CMP, or BAS sensor.
8. Faulty ignition switch.
9. Tilt sensor needs a reset.
10. Security alarm failing to disarm needs reset

How to test amperage on an oven ignitor


The easiest way to check the ignitor is to observe it. Remove the small access panel in front, select a high temperature setting and start the dryer. Watch the burner assembly, shortly after starting the unit the ignitor should begin to glow or spark. If you see it glow or spark, then the ignitor is working. If the ignitor did not appear to function and it is the spark type, it may be out of adjustment which generally requires professional service or it may require replacement. If the ignitor is the glow type, you can test it for resistance with a multimeter.


The ignitor has two wires connected to it.Label the wires and connections so that you can properly reconnect them later. The wires are connected with slip on connectors. Firmly pull the connectors off of the terminals (do not pull on the wire itself). You may need to use a pair of needle-nose pliers to remove the connectors. Inspect the connectors and the terminals for corrosion. If either is corroded they should be cleaned or replaced.

Set the multimeter to the ohms setting X1. Touch one probe to each terminal. You should get a reading anywhere between 50 and 600 ohms. If you get a reading of zero or infinity, the ignitor is definitely bad and will need to be replaced.

You can use an ohmmeter or just swap the wires on the spark box. Hint: they all spark no matter which burner is turned on.

Ignitor keeps sparking not wet or dirty even when no burner on


Will most probably be a problem with your ignition box. If you want to test this try taking off the hob by undoing the screws under the burners, be very careful with these however as it is very easy to strip the thread on them, once you have the hob off try unplugging the ignitor that keeps sparking and swapping where its plugged into the ignition box with another ignitor. These ignitor can be plugged into any plug in the box so no worries there. If the ignitor keeps sparkings in another hole its the ignitor. If the new ignitor sparks its the ignition box. It will most probably be the ignition box. Is a common fault

magneto stator can also be a solution check for AC power from stator while cranking the motor use sta-bil winterizing fluid to insure piston where during cranking process spray directly into spak plug holes with spark plus out 4 sprays into each cylinder should be enough crank motor without plugs for reduced compression and more cranking amps

Ignitor keeps sparking


ignitor works , so it's not broken. It's probably a flame sensor. It may be broken or what happens frequently , it moved out of place. Other cause might be a low gas pressure. Even if it starts, the flame dies soon and after few repeats it goes into lockout. I do not beleive your 'box' is broken either

How to test ignitor


Sometimes it's easier just to replace the ignitor, if the coil checks out for continuity.

You can check for coil spark by disconnecting the negative wire and tapping it against the chassis while looking for a spark from the high tension lead resting on the engine.

You can check the ignitor is getting a signal by connecting a dwell or duty cycle meter to the incoming signal.
