Question about Hotpoint RGB745 Gas Kitchen Range
Well lets think about it. If you see the ignitor glowing then you have a complete circuit. That means the oven control is sending down juice to the ignitor. The oven safety is alloing for continuity because the ignitor is indeed coming on. So what in the heck could be the problem. All the components SEEM to be working. The answer is simple. The ignitor WILL get WEAK and not put out enough AMPS to open the bi-metal inside that safety valve. The way to know for sure is to clamp on an ammeter to the system and do a simple amp draw check, however, we aint all got a hundred dollar ampmeter to check amp draw with.
Look at the ignitor,is it orange or very bright? If it is a mellow orange the chances are it is weak. Replace it.
