    Looking for troubleshooting tips on a P68 igniter

    Replaced the igniter this evening but still not getting a flame. Used a multimeter to test the igniter and it is good. The stove has been cleaned & I’ve checked the gaskets with the dollar bill test and they are good. At start up, the igniter indicator is a very faint red—I’m assuming this glow is from the lights above it. No heat in the pot.

    The igniter I replaced was working off and on, it took about a week to finally quit 100%. My thought now is I have an issue with my circuit board, does this seem right? What else can I check before buying a board?

    Using a multimeter you could check the power coming from the board and see if it is 120vac

    also check the igniter wires for damage (melted or pinched)
