Whirlpool SF377PEGQ 0 ,Gas Oven not igniting...

The oven doesnot light, nor do i have any gas smell when trying. The igniter does glow. The broiler does ignite. The top burners ignite. I can't seem to find any schematics out there that actually match my model. The gas valve has 1 inlet, 3 outlets. I suspect the top burners have another valve either under the cook top or behind the unit.. When I Ohm either set of contacts on the valve that serves the oven and broiler, I get only 1.1 ohms on both sets.

Summary - I suspect that the valve is bad, but was reading that the igniter could be weak?? I also do not know if perhaps that the igniter does not get hot enough(or draw enough current), that the gas valve won't have enough current to open???

Any help would be appreciated...

Burners work without a problem--broiler works but oven burner does not light--if I keep the oven selector switch on long enough (over 2 minutes), I will get a minor explosion in the oven. I have a GE XL44 self cleaning range.

If you have 120 v to ignitor then ignitor is bad.

The lower oven ignighter does not glow


I had the same problem and swapped the oven igniter with the broiler igniter and the oven now works. This proved the oven igniter itself was the fault, now I have to replace the broiler igniter with a new one(which is much easier to get to).

FYI: An igniter may glow red and still not allow the oven to work. The igniter has to draw a certain amount of electrical current for the main gas valve to open.

Whirlpool Accubake Super Capacity 465 gas range. Oven won't light


Some gas ranges may take 10 or so minutes to light.
Other than that you may have a defective glow bar ignitor.
If it glows and does not light the reistance in the ignitior has failed.
