How where you testing the voltage to the valve ,should be testing both terminals with the meter.
And Just because you have the igniter glowing does not mean it is good.
Do you have a Clamp on AMP meter?
With a standard volt meter contacting at terminals on the valve. If I recall one side was Brown wire and a White wire, and the other side I think was Green and White.
I don't have a clamp on but I can get one. It would not be till later tonite or tomorrow morning till I was able to test. Oven is not in my house it is in my mothers home about 1/2 hr drive.
If you can give me instructions I can try and test tonite sometime.
I will be on till midnight EST
And just clamp the probe on one of the wires to the igniter and turn the oven on .
If you get a reading of 2.8 - 3.2 amps the igniter is good and the valve is bad .
If you do not get between 2.8 - 3.2 amps the igniter is bad.
OK thanks will do. I will try to get back to you before you sign off or I can pay you now if you are confident this will solve the issue.
It can only be one of two things if the igniter glows.
You can pay now And I WILL still help you later if you need it .
