Some times the oven will explode - loud boom.- happened 3 time in 2 months. after the boom" the oven bakes ok. There was a faint gas odor oven is on for maybe 5 minutes before this happens. So what do you think causes this?
ANSWER Hello Dick. Test for 3.2-3.6 volts AC at the gas safety valve with the igniter turned on. If the voltage is there, you have a bad safety valve. If the voltage is low, you have a weak igniter and the igniter will need to be replaced. You can test this with a multi-meter TJMA-DMT3. Here is a link on how to use a multi-meter. http://forum.appliancepartspros.com/oven-repair-including-ranges-cooktops/4810-how-check-continuity-ohmmeter.html
