Trying to determine why oven wont light. Thermostat control seems fine - 120VAC between the heavy gauge wire when I turn the control on, but I don't read any voltage at the safety valve. I measure about 1.5-2 ohms across the valve terminals with the wires unhooked. Does that indicate a bad valve, or the signal going to the valve?
ANSWER Hello MsrkG. Test and see if there is power going to the igniter. If so, and not to the gas valve, you will need to replace the igniter WB2X9154. You can test this with a multi-meter TJMA-DMT3. Here is a link on how to use a multi-meter. Hope this helps. http://forum.appliancepartspros.com/oven-repair-including-ranges-cooktops/4810-how-check-continuity-ohmmeter.html
