I dont have an ohmeter, however I took the bottom pan off and set bake to 350 degrees, I watched as the ignitor got bright red and lit the flame, but at a temp of about 200 degrees the flame went out and never came back on. Wouldnt that indicate the temperature sensor probe is off somehow??
Sounds like the safety valve or pressure regulator. I had same problem and I switched both. No issues now.
The problem is is that it's lighting in the start get the temp to rise, but then when it clicks off the valve won't reopen all the way or the pressure doesn't go to the right psi.
The igniter will glow all day but if the valve isn't open all the way or the pressure isn't regulated the oven will not function correctly.
I switched both rather that troubleshoot. I figured I was in there already I might as well just do it. But I had the same exact problem before and now it's gone.
