Super Capacity 465 Stove Fixed!!!

This newer type stove uses Robertshaw technology similar to that used in HVAC high efficiency furnaces. The igniter does 2 things. It lights the gas and then it turns into a thermocouple and senses the flames. The brains feel the heat so to speak by measuring the resistance in the Kanthal type rod aka the spark igniter. The broil would work fine but the bake would not. It would only come on for a sec then go right back out. So I cleaned the spark igniter with steel wool and she started working. I replaced the igniter after determining the control was not the probo. Made a crude video of it:
