The top oven and broiler does not com on but the bottom oven works. I hear it click to turn on but nothing happens. The igniters look fine...could it be the safety valve?
Answer Hello Lall. 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
top burners work but broiler or oven dont come on
Answer DRB, You need to start by checking both ignter for voltage from the control to the igniter (120 VAC) and the the igniters need to produce 2.5 to 3.0 VAC at the terminals of the safety valve(be careful, this is a live voltage test). Both igniters being weak or broken, is a remote possibility. No voltage to igniter means a broken wire or issue in the control WB11K10011 No low voltage at the safety valve would indicate bad igniters WB2X9154 or broken/loose wires from the igniter to the safety valve.heres some meter usage information if you need it,

I get no gas flow to neither the oven or the broiler. How do I look for the problem? The igniters look like they are okay.
Answer Hello Don. 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 WB19K14. If the voltage is low, you have a weak igniter and the igniter WB2X9154 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.
