Question about Kitchen Ranges
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.
