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.

My Whirlpool Gas Range with E4 F3 for the sensor. I have replaced the sensor and still the same. Then I replaced Gas Valve and it started working for few years and again E4 F3. So, I replaced Gas Valve again its start working again for another few years and now its back again. What do you think the main issue is with this range? Model SF195LEKQ.
Answer Hello Jan,
The first thing I would do is chase the entire wiring harness to ensure no wires can contact one another. Since the control is popping the wrong fault code, I suspect that if no cross circuits are possible in the harness, the controls' self-diagnostic circuit is mal-functioning. The most common cause for control failure is corrosion on connectors. Therefore, disconnecting and reconnecting wires will be necessary throughout test procedures. Check all connections before replacing components, looking for broken or loose wires, failed terminals, or wires not pressed into connectors far enough. It may not be necessary to replace the control since the unit seems to operate correctly unit a code comes up but the issue can progress and get worse with time.
Top burners work, broiler works, oven does not work, I replaced the oven igniter, it still does not work. It does not click and no smell of lp gas.
You will want to check the resistance of the oven safety valve. The resistance from Bake to common (center terminal) should be 216 ohms of resistance. If there is not proper resistance then the safety valve is faulty and needs to be replaced.
My oven wont light up. When I push the start bottan to the oven I hear a click, then about two seconds later I hear another click
could it be the gas valve?
Answer Hello Victor. If the unit is gas, 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
My Bake Burner lights up momentarily and while igniter is still clicking, flame shuts down 4-5 seconds later. Could my safety gas valve be an issue? I get good ohms reading on both solenoids. Thanks
Answer Hello Andy. This sounds like a grounding issue. You will need to check all the wiring on the unit. If good, see if your model offers the burner and igniter assembly. If so, you will need to order and replace those parts.
When I try to use oven it just clicks 2 times but won't light. I don't know if the gas regulator is bad or if it is something else. I do not hear or smell gas.
You will want to test the resistance of your oven safety valve. When you check the resistance, you will want to test from Bake to common and broil to common. You would do this with each set to that function. The resistance value should be 216 ohms and if not the would need to replace the oven safety valve.
