Customer Question

Sears Gas Range Mo# ***** Ser# ***** Replaced a burned oven spark module Part# ***** still no spark in the oven. Could the oven control board have been damaged by a power serge also? And is there away to test it before I order an expensive part like the control board?

So the control board is not an option for this issue. If you're not getting a spark on bake or broil, then you have a bad DSI board (that is the spark module you just replaced) or a bad gas valve. There are 3 terminals on the gas valve so you need to check the resistance from the top terminal to the middle terminal, and the middle terminal to the bottom terminal. You should get a reading of approximately 210 ohms. If you don’t get a reading within 10% of that number, you need to replace the valve because even though only one coil may be bad, the DSI board will stop all oven function as soon as it detects there is a problem with one of the coils. Since you already replaced the DSI module I would imagine the gas valve is bad so below is a link tot eh part.
