I like to fix stuff by myself to an extent that I can manage.

comment What could cause my gas oven not to ignite?
It seems that the bottom igniter doesn't fire at cold start. My oven worked yesterday but did not today. So I opened the base plate and manually ignited it and replaced the plates. The baking started and after some time, the bottom burner stopped to maintain the temperature. A few minutes later when the temperature was down, it ignited by itself. I I heard the clicks and it ignited.

I believe that the bottom igniter is dead. I opened up the base plate and while I can see the sparks from the top igniter, there were no sparks at all from the bottom igniter. Amazingly it worked somehow yesterday.

To look at the igniter, I would have to remove it. It is located in the deep end of the oven. Is it easy to remove the igniter? Thanks.

Yes, I see the bottom igniter firing. I see blue sparks from the igniter. As I mentioned, it works sporadically.
