My magic cheif oven is very old and needs replacing. Funding is low and the oven has gone out. The part 74002387 would fix the problem. Rather than replace with a new part, can I repair the existing one?

Regena for Model Number 74002387

ANSWER Hello Regena. If the gas valve is bad, it will need to be replaced. You can not repair the old part. 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
