Oven not working but broiler was working fine.
Checked lower oven burner for a problem. Oven Ignitor looked like it was glowing and working properly but the gas valve would not open to let the gas flow to burner. I had read on a forum that just because the oven ignitor looks good does not mean it is creating the proper resistance to open the gas valve. So I took my chances and replaced the ignitor (because it was cheaper than the gas valve) and now the oven works like new.

Igniter glows, oven won't light
I removed the cover over the flame diffuser, then removed the single nut holding the diffuser to the burner assembly. After removing the three screws from the igniter assembly I found I couldn't reach the connector for the igniter.
I removed the storage tray underneath and found a cover towards the rear of the oven with two screws. After removing this piece I could easily disconnect the igniter. It was a bit difficult replacing this shield as it had to fit between two other pieces on the side towards the front of the oven.
I slid the guard from the old igniter and put it on the new piece and just reversed the procedure. Relatively easy and saved me a bundle!

Oven would take awhile to light causing gas fumes
I opened the oven and cleared the racks;
removed the cover of the oven heating area;
took off the nut holding the blast shield on;
removed all the screws holding the drip tray on;
some were quite rusty and fell out in my hand;
removed the 2 screws holding the igniter in;
and the one scew that allows adjustment;
pulled out the igniter and noticed the old one was connected with wire nuts while the new one had a module plug;
cut off the module plug and stripped back the wires;
applied the wire nuts;
stuck the wires back in tjhe hole and screwed it all back together-done,
I must say the best part of the repair was googling the problem "amana oven ignition troubleshooting" and getting a helpful discussion of the problem and a solution and a link to the parts suply house, It couldn't have been simpler. I got the part 2 days after ordering it online.

Oven wouldn't ignite
Bought new igniter based on advice from other stories here. Didn't test the impedance. The igniter glowed, but the oven wouldn't start.

1. Removed single nut on flame pan & remove pan.
2. Removed Pan drawer and disconnected plug to igniter.
3. Removed 3 screws holding igniter in place.

Note: the screws were corroded & one stripped in removal - you may want to purchase the metal housing for the igniter assuming it comes with new screws.

4. Put everthing back in opposite order.

Igniter was not turning on. This part fixed it.
Get to the ignitor:
Open oven, clean out the crude, and remove the bottom pan to get to the gas parts.
Remove the nut to get the flame sheild off.
Remove screws that hold the ignitor.
I stripped one and had to pry it off with a strait slot screw driver while turning it with a phillips.

Unplugging the ignitor:
Pull out the drawer. Removed the 2 panels under the stove to access the ignitor plug.
Replace the ignitor and reverse the procedure.

I did remove about 20 screws and the main pan at the bottom of the inside of the oven, but it didn't help me do anything, so don't make the mistake that i made with that.

oven burner not lighting
After reading previous posts regarding this type of problem, I determined the very high likelyhood that the over ignitor needed to be replaced. Accessing the underneath of the oven compartment, I removed the metal shield covering the ignitor wires in order to unplug the ignitor. (Be sure to disconnect power cord first)
From inside of the oven compartment remove the flame spreader plate ( 1-screw) which gives access to the ignitor. Remove the three screws holding the ignitor bracket and pull the wire and plug through. That's it !!
Installation of the new ignitor is the reverse of the above proceedure.
Oven now functions normally again.
A very simple repair.

previous igniter stopped working, oven would not heat up
i had to remove quite a lot of screws in the bottom "pan" of the over to get to the igniter wiring. once it was apart, it was easy to see how to disconnect and reconnect the new igniter. the trickiest part is to put the igniter into the metal sheeted housing before you try to thread the wiring through to the plug at the back of the stove. overall, this is an easy rip out and replace process.

oven would light only after 15 to 30 minutes
opened up the oven to locate the position of igniter

disconnected igniter and checked the continuity of the igniter to find that I had an open circuit

once I found out the igniter was no good I google for appliance parts and found parts select had the best prices that I could find. I called a couple local parts stores and there prices were definately inflated. I chose to go with parts.select.com
I receive the part in two days! I installed the new part within 15 minutes and turn on the oven to have it light almost instantly. I won much praise from my wife. Parts.select.com recieves my praise for ease and quickness of part delivery.
