my oven bake works but lower side broil can not ignited (sparking type ) I use owme meter masure the ignitor go throgh the current looks it is OK What can be worng ? Please let me know what parts need repair ? Thanks
Answer Dick, There are several components and resistance and voltage checks to make. " 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.
Then you'll need to make several tests at the gas distribution valve.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(within 10%) replace the igniter and burner" 8054078 and 8054129. Thanks
