Gas smell when oven is turned on

Mod# arg7102w part# 31940001
I replaced this igniter over 3 yrs ago. and now Im getting a bad smell of gas before it ignites. Is this igniter going bad so sounds like it? can I test it by testing the leds ?

Im planning to order another anyways. amazom 31.60

Unfortunately the only way to test an igniter is using an amprobe..... inline current meter. It should draw at least 3.2 amps before the valve opens.

From your description.... it does sound like a weak igniter.

Thank you, I am guessing that's what it is. taking longer than it should to ignite
