Thank you for your question and I understand your concern.

As Alina suggested in the first response adding the model number of the range will be needed in order to provide any model specific information.  If the oven only has one burner for the bake and broil and the igniter is not glowing, it could have a faulty oven thermostat (if it has one) or it may have a electronic oven control/clock assembly. When the oven is turned on, the thermostat must close a contact in order to complete the voltage path to the igniter. If the thermostat has only two terminals, it can be disconnected and tested for continuity across the two terminals of the thermostat with an Ohm meter. If it has an electronic oven control, the voltage would have to be measured. There is also an oven safety gas valve too that could be faulty. The oven safety valve can also be disconnected and tested across the two terminals for continuity with an Ohm meter. If your range has a mechanical thermostat, it may also have a clock with stop and start knobs. Both knobs should be in the out position for manual operation.NOTE: Disconnect the power cord from the power source before disconnecting and testing any of the components connected in series with the igniter circuit.

 So that’s what I can tell you at this point. I can give you more detailed help if you could provide me with the complete model number. The model numbers are typically located on the oven frame after opening the oven door or it could be on the frame behind the broiler/storage drawer. If you could supply me with that information I will be happy to assist you further.

thanks Joey...It's a GE gas range oven model # JGBS23WEA2WW....I do believe it has one burner for bake and broil. Like I said we changed the igniter. What reading should we get with an Ohm meter for thermostat, igniter and gas valve. Also, how do you read it with a multimeter?

Thank you for your question and I understand your concern. Anonymous: I added a URL to a video showing how to use an Ohm meter below. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ocvaqGzvE2I Copy and past the URL in the browser. When checking continuity of the oven thermostat, disconnect the power cord from the power source and then remove the two wires from the thermostat. Set the Ohm meter to measure Ohms, and place one meter lead on one of the thermostat terminals and the other meter lead on the other thermostat terminal and with the thermostat turned on, the meter should measure continuity. The oven safety valve can also be tested the same way. Since it is new igniter, it likely has faulty oven thermostat or oven safety valve.
