Walter for Model Number Whirlpool Model #LGQ8000JQ0

ANSWER Hello Walter, Check your thermostats and flame sensor for continuity. You should have continuity through them. If you do not then you will need to replace the part. If these check ok then you will need to check the resistance of the coils on gas valve. You should have 560 ohms of resistance on the secondary and 1.22K ohms on the main. 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
