I'm a homeowner and do not have expertise in trades but have repaired many things around the house watching YouTube and resources through forums.

Our Whirlpool gas oven model GW395LEPS02 does not heat up. the gas stovetop works fine. I've used fine sandpaper to clean the 2 electrodes in the oven.
When we turn on the oven, we can hear the convection fan turn on and blow air around.
I do not smell any gas coming through and it does not appear the electrodes are giving any spark.
So, I'm guessing I need to check on the gas release valve, but not sure how to do that.

If anyone has ideas on what else to check and resources, that would be great!

thank you!

Measure the resistance across the bake coil and the broil coil on the DSI valve

thank you! might be a little technical for me but I will try to figure out how to do this. any instructions anywhere for this? seems like a pricey part to replace considering the age of our stove.

It's very easy to check. Unplug or remove power from the range when measuring resistance. Disconnect the common wire from the valve and use a meter on the lowest ohms setting to check for 216Ω

When checking AC or DC voltage at the DSI board leave the connector connected and go in through the back of the connector. If you meter leads are too big, use this trick:

Yes, Rick is correct.

Here's the DSI Spark Module Board for your model:
Spark Module WPW10331686


Watch this video to replace/access the DSI Board, but don't remove the DSI board when testing it.
