Hello, My oven will not bake or broil. The display reads 100 but never changes. I hear the relay click but that is it. I smell no gas coming out. The top burners work just fine. I was not sure If I needed this part as it maybe not drawing enough current to trigger valve or if the top display unit is the problem?

Cory for Model Number MGR4452BDS

ANSWER Hello Cory. Test for 3.2-3.6 volts AC at the gas safety valve with the igniter turned on. If the voltage is there, you have a bad safety valve. If the voltage is low, you have a weak igniter and the igniter will need to be replaced. 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
