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 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.
My LP gas Whirlpool oven and broiler won't light. The top surface burners light fine.
You will want to check to see if the igniters are sparking but not lighting then you will want to check the resistance of the coils on the safety valve. From either of the outer terminals to the center terminal there should be 216 ohms of resistance and if not then the valve is faulty.
