Will the oven ignite or does it just click 3x and shut off?

Ask Your Own Appliance Question

The oven light is control through the computer board, so I can't see the relationship from the gas igniter to the lamp. Both are run by separate computer boards.

Do you have the oven base panel off so you can see the burner?

Customer reply replied 3 months ago
but only for a couple seconds

The igniter communicates with the spark controller board and has to sense that the flame is established to stop the sparking and keep the gas valve open.

There may be a problem with the igniter or the board.

Does the broiler work?

Can you tell me how to do a a test

Set you meter to the OHM setting and take the probes and touch them together.

The readout should be zero 0

If it doesnst you don"t have it set correctly.

Then access the valve, Unplug the wires off the valve and test across each terminal.

B - C

C - D

D - B

All reading should be about 216 ohms

Lower solenoid is 210 top one 205

There is a problem with the valve. All the readings have to be the same.

Do you want me to look up the part number for the valve for you?
