Good Afternoon. The stovetop is working, but the oven and broiler isn't working. When you press the igniter button for the oven you smell gas, but it doesn't lite. When you try to start the broiler nothing happens and no gas smell. Any suggestions will be helpful.

ANSWER Gary, Your issue is most likely in the DSI Spark Module W10331686, but could be in the gas distribution valve W10293048 Here's some test information, that will help you out. 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. Then you'll need to make several tests at the gas distribution valve. You'll need a multi meter to test voltage and resistances. At the valve body terminals, with the wires labeled and removed 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(within 10%) repalce the gas valve and check the wiring at the igniters. Thanks
