My electric ignitators don't work. I had an technician out and he told me at the time that the circuit board was bad and needed replacing. He said this is something I could do to save money. When I called him two days later he told me that I needed to order sensor probe and contol panel. Does this sound right to you? The technician when I called him back act like he couldn't remember what he had done for me. Don't want to order something I don't need.
ANSWER Hello Charles,
Using a multimeter you can determine which part has failed. You can do a resistance check on the oven safety valve. There are 3 terminals on this valve. The middle terminal is common. If you test each coil with the wires off the terminals check from bake to common and broil to common. The resistance value should read 216 ohms. If it does not then the valve is bad and would cause ignitors not to work. If the resistance value is good then you will want to test with the oven on and gas turned to the off position for 3.2 to 3.6 amps on the ignitor. If there is not 3.2 to 3.6 then the ignitor 8054129 is bad and needs replaced. Also check the gas valve 9763716 to see if there is 3.2 to 3.6 vac and if there is not then the spark module W10331686 is bad and needs to be replaced.
