I have a whirlpool range model # sf362lxsq. There is no bake

Customer Question

I have a whirlpool range model # ***** There is no bake or broil. Cook top is working fine. Ignitors are not glowing at all. I wasn't sure how to check voltage to the ignitors as they have only one wire attached to ignitors. My power pen shows power
to ignitors but I have no idea how much voltage they are getting.

Hello from JA
My name is Woody.
I will be glad to assist you today.
I have been servicing ALL Major Brands of Appliances for 35 Years,
and have over 100,000 in home repairs and over 80,000 internet repairs under my belt.

Can I please have the Full model number of the unit to better assist you ?

You are missing a digit on the end of the model number.

And the model/serial tag is on the oven face frame after the door is opened on the right hand side.

And do you have a volt-ohm meter and know how to use it? to be able to do any component and true voltage testing.

The last digit is 0.
I do have a volt and ohm meter but I have never checked voltage to an igniter that has only one wire connector instead of two.

Ok this model has a spark igniter system it is not a glow igniter!

The spark module does a safety test ,before it sparks to light the oven burners.

You will need to remove the oven drawer ,and get under the unit and do a resistance (ohms) tests on the safety gas valve

Test the terminal on the gas valve with the Orange lead removed test the terminal where the Orange lead was to the Red (that is for Bake ) and then test the terminal where the Orange was to the blue (that is for Broil) I suspect one of those will not show resistance at all.

Let me know what you find please, I can give you part number if you need it.
