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.

My oven suddenly quit working - broiler works and burners, but the oven will not heat and there is the smell of gas whenever I turn the oven controls on. Can light the bottom burner of the oven with a...


More than likely, you have a bad igniter. As the igniters age from repeated use, they can become weak and longer function properly. Just because they glow, does not mean they are good. If you are experiencing ignition problems, the following link explains a little theory about how these igniters work and how to replace one:


http://www.fixya.com/support/r3575727-replacing_an_oven_igniter_on_a_gas_range


The burner manifolds in the oven each use a glow bar or electrode type igniter with a gas safety valve to ignite. Both oven manifolds are controlled by the Electronic Oven Control (EOC) board, which is your clock/timer on the control panel. If the surface burners work, but the oven does not, the problem is usually not a gas related issue. If a single igniter is still working (i.e., the broiler still works), its more than likely NOT a control board issue, either.

Replacement parts (if required) can be purchased at any of the following websites:

searspartsdirect.com
pcappliancerepair.com
appliancepartspros.com
repairclinic.com

Prices vary between these sites, so shop and compare. The first three sites listed also offer helpful exploded view diagrams to help you locate and properly identify the parts you need. If the model number is correct, the part number for a replacement igniter is WB2X9154.

NOTE: It is common for the BAKE igniter to require replacement more often than the broiler, due to the frequency of use.

If you have any questions please post back and let me know. I hope this helps you.
