My original problem was that my oven would light intermittently. After replacing the igniter with the new one (5303935066) the oven don't work at all. The old igniter checks with 320 ohms resistance and the new one has 192 ohms. What should the correct reading be on a good igniter? Do you think I got a bad replacement part or could there be something else wrong with my oven? Everyone is very helpful.
Thank you.

Faulty ignitor or faulty connection.

Thank you for the reply.
Do you know how many ohms a good igniter should have?

anything less than "infinite" < not a valid test (changes with temperature)
Try re-installing the "old" Ignitor
Did you remove power from the Range while replacing Ignitor ?
After leaving this Earth, "Do you want the smoking or non-smoking section?"
