I have a Dynasty Gas Range Model DGR-36-4G Serial #240394C.
I have gone through two igniters. The voltage is 121.
The glow-plug itself breaks within 15 minutes of installation.
No diagram to hook up the igniter leads to the wiring harness.
Is the igniter supposed to stay on once the oven burner is lit?

Any qualified gas installer can convert it for you. Pretty straightforward. They do it all the time. A lot of new appliances come with either option and they convert them on the spot. Mainly the gas injector orifice size needs increasing. They can do this with out requiring spare parts. They just make it easier. Will also require an appliance regulator to be installed.
The problem is usually the igniter not reaching the correct amp draw .When the igniter does not reach the correct amp draw it may allow the gas valve to partially open or not open at all. The igniters are inexpensive and easy to replace. There is a video at www.appliancehelponline.com/servicemanual.html this will walk you thru the correct procedure for performing this test. It may be a different model but the testing will be the same.You can also enter your model # for diagrams and illustrations of your specific model. Not all models are available. All parts come with installation instructions.
I think you are talking about the oven safety valve or thermal valve. before you change you oven safety valve, I would check the Amperage on the oven ignitor first, install AMP meter on one of the ignitor wire, it should draw above 3AMPs, if not then you have problem with the oven ignitor and not the safety valve. we hardly change the safety valve, I'll try to change the ignitor first. Have fun.
pull up the floor of your oven and look at the burner, have any of the small gas holes rusted out in to bigger holes? Sounds like it is possible that most of the gas is now coming out a 'burned out' hole rather than the small neat row of normal holes. Good luck.
