I replaced the igniter, after the oven stopped working. The plastic connectors to the igniter had melted against the body of the oven. I was only getting 70 VAC to the igniter then and now. I traced the voltage through the thermostat, to the igniter and then to the gas valve. I have identified the problem as a bad neutral through the gas valve. [I bypassed the valve, got 120VAC to the igniter, and it glowed properly] I tested the neutral wire to/from the gas valve and it is good. So I'm left with resistance (approx 3-4 ohms) through the gas valve which gets me only 70 volts to the igniter. I'm not a "parts replacer", but the testing seems to confirm that the gas valve is defective. Am I missing anything?
ANSWER Hello Ted. According to the test you have confirmed the gas valve needs to be replaced on the unit.
