My Whirlpool oven does not work. The controls are all working though but when I turn on the oven, there is no flame coming out? Is it the gas valve?
Answer Hello Meila. You will need to check and see if the oven igniter is sparking to lite the gas. If it is not, you may need to replace the spark module W10331686. Hope this helps.

The oven will not light. The burners light and function properly.The oven ignitor is clicking and producing spark.There is a faint smell of gas,but the oven will not light? I'm thinking gas valve?
You will want to check the oven safety valve for 216O of resistance between bake and common terminals. If there is not proper resistance then the valve is faulty and would need to be replaced. If this checks ok then you will want to check the burner for clogs or rust around the ports at this could cause a bad gas flow and cause the oven to not ignite.
During elec. power failuer can the top burners and oven be lit with matches? If not, can a Battery Spark Ignition system be installed to replace the existing electrical digital? Should you care not to discuss the latter issue in your Q/A, I would appreciate a phone call
Answer Chuck, In the event of a power outage, YES, the cooktop gas burners can be lit with a match, but you have to be careful, you may prefer to use a grille or barbeque lighter. Unfortunately, the oven burner wont light or cycle without electrical power to the igniter and safety valve. We don't see how a battery operated spark ignition system would be effective or conducive to the situation. The cost and engineering could be pretty restrictive.
Hi, the Bake function of my Whirlpool Accubake, WFG361LVS1, is not working. The stove-tops and broiler light and stay lit. When starting the Bake function, the igniter clickes twice, the Bake burner lights from front to back, stays lit for a few seconds, then shuts off. The sound made at this point sounds like the gas is being shut off. I tested the resistance of the Bake-to-common terminals and the Broil-to-common terminals on the gas value assembly and received 198 Ohms. The expectation was 216 Ohms. Is this an acceptable value for this part? Since the Bake and Broil terminals have identical resistance, but the Broil function works and Bake function doesn't; does this point to an issue with another part? Is it still necessary to measure the input DC voltage of the part when activating the Bake function? Would my electronic igniter module be the issue? Please help as soon as possible, Thanks, Chris
Answer Chris, The coil resistances on the gas valve are barely in range (216 ohms +/- 10 %) but should operate satisfactorily. You want to check and make sure the igniter wire isn't loose, pinched or corroded. The DSI spark module W10331686 has a safety / re ignition circuit, if it doesn't "see" a change in the ground circuit from the igniter, it will shut the circuit down and the oven will go into a locked setting. Check and make sure you have the 8 to 18 DC volts to the gas valve terminals from the module and a good solid ground to the range. Then replace the DSI spark module.
My oven will not re-ignite.
The stove works and the broiler works.
I just replaced the igniter. It lights, but will not re-ignite to maintain temperature for baking.
Is this a gas valve issue or just a bad product?
Answer Hello Carole. If the igniter does not spark again to relight, either the temp sensor or the control board is bad on the unit. If it does spark, but does not light, you will need to check out the gas safety valve on the unit.
On my Whirlpool range when turned to bake I hear the solenoid go twice. When turned to broil I hear nothing from the solenoid. I get continuity on the bake side but none on the broil side. I need a new valve don't I?
Answer Paul, yes, sounds like you do need a gas valve/regulator. When you place your meter leads across the center terminal, and each outside terminal you should have a resistance of 216 ohms resistance on each test. With the wires attached to the terminals, you should have a DC Volt reading of 8 to 18 VDC from the DSI spark module, when the oven is attempting to ignite.
