Question about Viking VGSC306-4B Gas Kitchen Range
I have a norton 501a ignitor and i need to know the ohm reading
When room temp, you'll see about 80 ohms. As it heats the resistance goes up, and thus the amperage draw goes up, which is the critical component to release of gas and thus ignition. The ignitor needs to reach 3.2 to 3.6 amps before the gas safety valve will open and release the gas for ignition. Old ignitors get weak and even if they still glow they may not draw enough amperage to allow the oven to work. Also, low voltage will result in lower amperage draw and possible ignition problems.
