How to test an Oven Ignitor with a clamp on Amp meter. You will want to use this test if the oven ignitor is glowing orange, but the oven is not heating. It is possible for the oven Ignitor to be defective but still glow orange.
The best way to do this is to apply 120 VAC to the ignitor and test the amperage. 2.8 amps will let the safety valve open and let gas into the oven. A good ignitor should read around 3.2 – 3.5 after it has heated up for a few seconds.
