Question about Tappan TGFS_63 Gas Kitchen Range
First my gas valve wouldnt put out any gas but the ignitor worked and after taking it all apart to check voltage to gas valve I had only about 2.8 volts then the ignitor stopped working and I checked it again and there was 120 volts has this ruined my gas valve as well?
The problem 99% of the time is the ignitor. even though its glowing its not pulling enough amps to open the bi-metal in the gas valve. id replace both ignitors if yours has two

Thank you for posting your question here on Fixya.com.
You will need a monometer to check gas pressure before and after the valve and a voltmeter to check for voltage at the valve.
Hook up the monometer and watch for pressure drop during the ignition phase. If it does and the heater won't light your problem is in the ignitor or control board. If it does not your problem is the board or the valve.
Check for voltage at the gas valve to confirm if the valve or the board is the problem.
If you are unfamiliar with these tools you should call a professional. You are working in a potentially dangerous environment.
