Just moved oven to new house top burners work. Bake and broil I can see the igniter glow on top or bottom (broil or bake) but gas wont flow to heat oven what could it be?
Test for 3.2-3.6 amps 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
The oven / warmer / top of range works but the broiler will not turn on. What do I need?
Answer Hello Scott,
You will want to check to see if the ignitor on broil is working and if it is glowing you will want to do an amp draw. The amp draw should be 3.2 to 3.6 amps. If you are not getting proper amp draw then you would need to replace the ignitor. If getting proper amp draw then you would need to replace the safety valve.
When I shut the oven off, the burner stays lit. The gas will not shut off.
Answer Hello Jim,
If you are referring to the bake burner not going off when you turn the unit off, you need to replace the safety valve 3203459. If it is a surface burner that won't go off, the valve for that surface burner 5303935210 or 5303935213 will require replacement.
The oven and broiler dont work.. The pilot lights are or on but no gas. Stove top works just fine was wonderin if it was the safety valve or regulator?
Answer Hi Mark. Remove the power and the wires from the safety valve terminals. Ohm them out for 1-ohm resistance and each terminal to ground for shorts. See if you have the 120vac to the valve from the clock control. Check the wire connections as well. From the descriptions explained you need the safety valve part # 5303208499. If you have a amp meter to ,clamp it on one wire going to the bake igniter (Or broil igniter). Then command the bake actions. It should show 3.2-3.6amp draw within 30-45 seconds to open the safety valve. If you have less amperage draw then replace the igniter part # 5303935066. If it is correct amp draw without the gas opening, then replace the safety valve. Thank You.
