Mistaking a broiler for a storage drawer below the oven, my friend placed a single medium size piece of tupperware inside the broiler. Naturally it was lit on fire, and a lot of soot (and fire extinguisher chemicals) were deposited on and around the igniter. The igniter still glows hot when the oven is turned on, but I don't hear gas and it doesn't ignite.
Should I suspect the heating element is too dirty to work effectively?
That the gas line has become clogged? Could cleaning some of these parts help or do they probably need to be replaced?
The oven/stove is a GE model JGBS22BEA1WH
