The little black box in the back melted the connectors to it, i was wondering what its called?
Answer Terry, I believe the box you are referring to is the terminal box. May we have your model number and we will be glad to verify further. Thanks.
Burners still light however the oven and Broiler do no light. I believe that it is the igniter but I guess that it could also be the safety valve?
Answer Hello Terry.
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
oven does not preheat. we smell gas . oven goes out. broiler & top burners work ok.
Answer Jmanfre, You're on track, on target. the oven igniter 74007498 needs to draw 3.2 to 3.6 amps or supply 3.2 to 3.6 VAC wires to the safety valve. If it doesn't you'll have irratic operation of the burner, and may have an occasional gas odor. Install the correct igniter and you should be fine. Thanks and Good Luck
My oven stopped lighting last week. The burners and the broiler continued to light, so I assumed the igniter was the issue. I ordered a new igniter and replaced it tonight. I tested everything to see if it would light and it started right up. However, after I put it all back together and pushed the oven back into place, the oven failed to light.
When I try to turn on the oven, I hear the gas begin to release and the igniter clicking to try to spark the gas, but it won't light. Any ideas? The only idea I had was that perhaps the igniter was no contacting the gas for some reason, but I do not think that is the case as the igniter cannot be adjusted.
Answer Hello Tim. You will need to test for power to the bake igniter 4342528 during bake mode. If there is power coming to the igniter, and the igniter glows, but the gas does not release, you will need to replace the gas safety valve W10293048. If there is no power, test and see if the relay on the control board is sending out power. If not, replace the clock assembly. You can test this with a multi-meter TJMA-DMT3. Here is a link on how to use a multi-meter. Hope this helps. http://forum.appliancepartspros.com/oven-repair-including-ranges-cooktops/4810-how-check-continuity-ohmmeter.html
Hi I have copy and pasted my question and your answer. This model does not have a glow ignitor, it has a spark ignitor. Please help.
"Oven won't come on, I touch "Broil" and the fan comes on five seconds later sounds like valve opens and then closes 2 seconds later. Confirmed this by pulling out the oven ans can feel the click of the valve opening and closing. Dont think glow igniter is comming on. Why?
I touch "Bake", no valve sounds at all, no glow igniters at all, information panel reads "preheating LO". Electric element gets hot in both cases.Please help, very confused thought I knew ovens.
"Hello Sheldon. You will need to test for power coming to the igniter AP3104565. If there is power there, and the unit does not glow, you will need to replace the igniter. You can test this with a multi-meter AP3873826. Here is a link on how to use a multi-meter. Hope this helps

Answer Sheldon, You were right from the start, you don't have glow bar igniters, You have a spark ignition system 8054129 , you should be able to hear the igniters spark ( click noise) when you select a bake or broil cycle and temperature. Here are some checks to make at the gas distribution valve : First thing, check and make sure the power cord is attached to a properly polarized and grounded 120 VAC outlet. A proper ground is very important for the range to operate properly. You'll need a multi meter to test voltage and resistances. At the valve body terminals, with the wires labeled and remove from the middle terminal to each of the outer terminals, you should read 215 ohms resistance. With the wires reconnected, when you select the bake cycle, you should have a reading of 8 to 18 VDC across the red and orange wires.When you make a broil selection you should have the same 8 to 18 VDC,across the orange and blue wires. If all checks are proper replace the gas distribution valve 9763716 If the voltages from the DSI aren't correct repalce the DSI sopark module W10331686 located in the control panel. Thanks and Good Luck
