I have a kenmore gas oven and the range top works fine but the broiler and oven will not light and I can't smell any gas when I turn them on. What can I do to get it working?
ANSWER Hello Sara,
The first thing that you want to check is the oven ignitors. You can check them using multi-meter and ohm them out. They should be 50-950 ohms cold. You also want to check amp draw on the ignitors and ensure that they are getting 3.2 to 3.6 amp draw when they turn on. Without proper amp draw the valves will not open. We will need your model number to help you with this. Please post your model number with a new question on the parts page. http://www.appliancepartspros.com/modelnumber_locator.aspx
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
