My oven stopped lighting last week. The burners and the broiler continued to light, so I assumed the igniter was the issue. I ordered a new igniter and replaced it tonight. I tested everything to see if it would light and it started right up. However, after I put it all back together and pushed the oven back into place, the oven failed to light.
When I try to turn on the oven, I hear the gas begin to release and the igniter clicking to try to spark the gas, but it won't light. Any ideas? The only idea I had was that perhaps the igniter was no contacting the gas for some reason, but I do not think that is the case as the igniter cannot be adjusted.
ANSWER Hello Tim. You will need to test for power to the bake igniter 4342528 during bake mode. If there is power coming to the igniter, and the igniter glows, but the gas does not release, you will need to replace the gas safety valve W10293048. If there is no power, test and see if the relay on the control board is sending out power. If not, replace the clock assembly. 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
