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.
Oven won't turn on. The ignitor glows but doesn't light burner. Broiler works fine.

I recently installed a new dual gas valve ap2138239 which I ordered from appliance parts pro. When I turned the oven on, flames come out of both sides of the oven where slots are at. The stove is propane. Does it matter? What would make such a large flame? air?
Answer Hello Jim,
Yes Sir, it certainly does matter. All parts come from the manufacturer set up for natural gas, just like all new gas appliances are set up for natural gas. You have to change it over to LP from natural gas. Referring to the first picture on the part on our site, the brass part at the top must be screwed down to the bottom. It is screwed out right now for natural. Tightening it down will change it over to LP. By the way, it only needs to be turned down to the bottom of its' travel. Once it stops, DO NOT TIGHTEN ANY MORE. Finger tight to the bottom of its' travel is sufficient.
I have the gas range in one of my rentals, tenant says a couple times oven has shut done while in cooking mode ? Thanks for your help.
Answer Hi Tom. The burner igniter 5303935066 needs to read between 50-500 ohms cold. Anything different will be bad. It is under the flame spreader underneath the bottom oven panel. With a amp probe you can hook on any one of the 2-igniter leads. While starting, you will get from 3.2 to 3.6 amps within 30-45 seconds. This is the proper amp draw To open the safety valve and allow gas flow. While in thne heat command you should have 3.0 vac to 3.5 vac at the safety valve if you want to check there. The safety valve needs 1-ohm or less on the 2-terminal checks itself. Any different needs a new safety valve part # 5303208499. Is the oven sensor that reads between 1080 - 1100 ohms and twist the wires as you test. A bad sensor part # 316233902 will not properly regulate the oven temperature. It normally goes out after a few years service especially after a cleaning mode of higher temperature's. Thank You.
