Note: This question is for the older version of this part, but we thought you might still find it helpful
The top 4 burners lite, the broiler lights, but when the stove is turned on, the igniter gets red hot but no gas is released or ignited. I tried to manually lite it but nothing. So what is the problem? The igniter, the gas valve? Please help, Thanks!
The ignitor 74007498 should turn almost white hot. It can be tested with a clamp on amp meter. It should read from 3.2 to 3.6 amps. If this reading is low, the gas valve will never open and the flame cannot occur. If the proper current is present, the gas valve 74006427 is the problem.
