Hi I have copy and pasted my question and your answer. This model does not have a glow ignitor, it has a spark ignitor. Please help.
"Oven won't come on, I touch "Broil" and the fan comes on five seconds later sounds like valve opens and then closes 2 seconds later. Confirmed this by pulling out the oven ans can feel the click of the valve opening and closing. Dont think glow igniter is comming on. Why?
I touch "Bake", no valve sounds at all, no glow igniters at all, information panel reads "preheating LO". Electric element gets hot in both cases.Please help, very confused thought I knew ovens.
"Hello Sheldon. You will need to test for power coming to the igniter AP3104565. If there is power there, and the unit does not glow, you will need to replace the igniter. You can test this with a multi-meter AP3873826. Here is a link on how to use a multi-meter. Hope this helps

ANSWER Sheldon, You were right from the start, you don't have glow bar igniters, You have a spark ignition system 8054129 , you should be able to hear the igniters spark ( click noise) when you select a bake or broil cycle and temperature. Here are some checks to make at the gas distribution valve : First thing, check and make sure the power cord is attached to a properly polarized and grounded 120 VAC outlet. A proper ground is very important for the range to operate properly. You'll need a multi meter to test voltage and resistances. At the valve body terminals, with the wires labeled and remove from the middle terminal to each of the outer terminals, you should read 215 ohms resistance. With the wires reconnected, when you select the bake cycle, you should have a reading of 8 to 18 VDC across the red and orange wires.When you make a broil selection you should have the same 8 to 18 VDC,across the orange and blue wires. If all checks are proper replace the gas distribution valve 9763716 If the voltages from the DSI aren't correct repalce the DSI sopark module W10331686 located in the control panel. Thanks and Good Luck
