Question about GE Kitchen Ranges
The way to tell for sure is to take an ohm reading on both and a current reading on the ignitor. The thermostat should read 0 ohms when calling for heat. The ignitor should read some resistance but not an open circuit. The current draw through the ignitor should be about 3.2 Amps, any less means it is too weak to open the gas valve.
If you do not have meters try these checks.
If the ignitor glows at all then the thermostat is good. If the ignitor does not glow at all it could be either the thermostat or the ignitor,
If you can see the ignitor close up sometimes you can see a white spot on it or a crack, this means the ignitor is bad.
If you have to guess which one the smart money is on the ignitor being bad
