Oven no worky. Amp. tested square ignitor=2.5ac. should be atleast 3.2. Changed ignitor, unit lit after a good 3 min., had a strong gas smell. When it did light, there was a 'poof', and a flash of flame. I thought maybe  it had been out of use for a while, so let it run for a bit. Turned it of and tried again, nothing. Ignitor draws 3.5 amps., definitely has gas flow, but no lighty.  Power supply good, had continuity between thegas valve terminals, also had continuity btween the t-stat terminals. Tried adjusting the gas orifice on the burner tube. Removed burner tube and cleaned out all the holes in it, thought maybe sediment build up. Shouldnt the gas shut off if the oven does not light? I didnt let it run more than 2 min. or so, the smell was so strong. Didnt want to be on the front page in the morning. Brand new ignitor, have gas, why no fire?

It could possibly be that the igniter isn't close enough to the burner, especially if the gas valve is opening and not lighting. That could explain the small explosion you get when it does ignite.

You have a bad gas oven safety valve. It's become sluggish to open. Will eventually start growling. Part link for new valve==> http://www.repairclinic.com/PartDetail/Gas-Burner-or-Control-Component/1028497?modelNumber=FGP305KW2
