My oven igniters won't click but when I press button for bake I hear one click from I'm assuming relay on spark board. I have replaced clock module and spark control module and still get nothing. Top burners work but oven does not. I was also told to ground igniters but I'm not sure I did it right, I ran a wire from igniter bracket to oven chassis still nothing. Any ideas? I am not getting any clicking from igniters.

Hi,

Lets first ohm test the gas valve. You will need a multimeter to ohm test the gas valve.

Here's the gas valve for your model you can order, if needed:
WPW10293048 Valve-Gas


Its located at the very bottom of your range towards the back, so you'll need to pull your lower storage drawer out to access it, get a flashlight or droplight so you can see better under there.

Unplug or remove power from the range FIRST. Set the Ohm meter on RX300. Remove the three wires from the gas valve. The wire connectors are different sizes so they can be replaced in the same spot. The center terminal is the common terminal. Put one meter probe on the center terminal and touch one of the other terminals and then the other terminal. The meter should read 216 Ohms both times. If not, replace the gas valve.

TEST PROCEDURE
Solenoid Resistance Tests

1. Disconnect power from the range.
2. Set the ohmmeter to the R x 100 scale.
3. Touch the ohmmeter terminals to terminals 1 and 2 (Broil). The ohmmeter should read 216 Ω ±30.
4. Touch the ohmmeter terminals to terminals 3 and 2 (Bake). The ohmmeter should read 216 Ω ±30.

NOTE: Always check both solenoids. If one of the solenoids is defective, neither one will operate.



Keep us posted.

Jake tried both terminals and got no reading at all, I guess it's time to replace valve. Your thoughts would be greatly appericated, Thanks

No reading at all? Your meter has fresh batteries in it?

Ok, if your 100% sure you ohm tested it properly and your getting no reading, then the gas valve is the culprit.
