My oven burner will not light. I replaced the ignitor, which was defective, but the oven burner (gas) will not come on. How do I troubleshoot further ? Suspect the problem is either the gas valve or the electronic control board.
Answer Al. If the igniter ohms out between 75-800 ohms cold it should be good. Even if you received a new part, a very minute hairline crack will still open the igniter just enough to not light it. Usually they are packed very good in the box so it will be a rare case if it is open and new. If you have or can borrow a clamp on amp meter, this will aid in diagnosis. Remove the storage drawer. Remove the rear cover inside the back to access the safety valve. Then clamp the amp meter on either lead of the igniter by the gas valve (white). Now command the bake to work. In 30-45 seconds, the amp probe will pull between 3.2-3.6amps and the igniter will glow white. At this point it will open the safety valve and gas flow will ignite. Or if you have a volt meter set to the highest volt scale, it should read 3.2-3.6 vac. If no gas flow, then you need the safety valve. Part # 9755424. Thank You.
