American Range oven
We've had an American 30" Range since 2008, purchased at Dvorsons and shipped to us up in PDX. We've had progressively worse performance from the oven in the past, esp. the past few months when it would groan every time the gas came on, until we discovered *the night before Thanksgiving* , that the oven wouldn't start at all. When we opened the door after several minutes, we couldn't smell any gas at all.
DH read that when the are groaning problems, it is usually the igniter, but we can't find anything online about fixing it, can't find where to get parts, and it's out of warranty. We're generally used to fixing our own appliances (we fixed the last stove we had and got several more years out of it) and specifically picked American because it didn't have a lot of unnecessary features like self-clean that could break down and cause problems.
Does anyone have any experience with this kind of problem? Thanks in advance...
