Oven Doesn’t Heat Up

Our old gas oven doesn’t heat up! Like, it’s not even warm…

The problem turned out to be the igniter. Here’s what it looks like:

If you order a new one, it’s fairly easy to install…

It attaches right under the bar that the gas emits from. You’re supposed to turn off the gas before installing a new one, but I didn’t.

The new one works great, but I notice that the oven temperature doesn’t match up with the dial anymore; it’s always hotter! So I bought an in-oven thermometer so that I can always get the temperature just right.
