Neither the broil burner or the bake burner turns on. The top burners work just fine, you hear the clicking noise but no sparks come out. When using a flame the burner does light up. Is it possible that both top and biottom ignitors went bad in the same time( altough I am told by my in laws that they never used the feature) -so dont know it ever worked. I suspect there might be more than just the ignitor not sparking.

ANSWER Hello Marius, You should first check the Spark module. The spark module will deliver spark to all parts of unit. You can test on the spark module, Connector J1 pin 7 to pin 4 , pin 6 to pin 4 and pin 9 to pin 4 for 120 vac on each location. If you are getting 120 vac then your have a bad spark module. You cannot test the board to the ignitors because the voltage is too high. You can test each ignitor for continuity but not power. On the bake and broil you can test across the pins on the safety valve for resistance. You should have 216 ohms from bake (Red) to common (orange) and broil (Blue) to common (orange). 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
