NEITHER THE OVEN OR BROILER WILL IGNITE. I CHANGED THE BAKE IGNITOR, BUT THAT DID NOT FIX THE PROBLEM.
I HAVE WORKED ON THIS GAS RANGE BEFORE AND HAD ORDERED A CONTROL VALVE BEFORE. AT THAT TIME IT TURNED OUT TO BE THE IGNITOR. I INSTALLED THE EXTRA CONTROL VALVE THIS TIME, BUT IT DID NOT FIX THE PROBLEM. DO YOU KNOW WHAT THE READINGS SHOULD BE WITH MY OHM METER ON THAT CONTROL. THANKS
ANSWER Timm, With your multimeter set on the lowest ohms resistance scale, you should read a "closed"( infinite resistance) across the two terminal on each of the valves. You can also check for the voltage from the igniter(s) and verify if they are producing the proper circuit. There should be 3.2 to 3.6 VAC across the two terminals of each gas valve when the igniter is glowing.
