Question about DCS Kitchen Ranges
The broiler on our DCS RGS-366 stopped working. A repairman came out, put in a new igniter, and when he turned on the broiler, the igniter got white hot and exploded. Said it was probably a bad igniter. Came back today and put a different igniter in, but found out that it was only getting about 12v. We traced it back to the safety valve - it was only getting 12v there on the broiler side, but the make bake side was getting the full 120v. Can't seem to find the schematics for this range -- does this sound like a problem with the safety valve or is it likely back at the thermostat? Again, the make bake burners and stovetop burners work fine. Thanks in advance for any help/guidance.

Very well could be. I'm assuming the bake burner is the problem, right? Does the igniter glow at all? If it is glowing, but the burner does not light, is it usually a symptom of an igniter that has become weak. If it does not draw enough current the gas valve will not open and the burner will not light. This is a safety feature to prevent free flowing gas without ignition. If the broil burner is functioning properly, then more than likely the gas valve and regulator are working fine. In most ranges both burners are fed from the same source. You could try swapping igniters between the broil and bake burners to prove the theory. Or, you could just replace the igniter all together. Current readings are as follows: Round shaped glow igniter: 2.7 to 3.2 amps Square shaped glow igniter: 3.2 to 3.7 amps If you can give me the exact model number off your range (usually located around the oven door or on the back of the range) I can give you the correct part number you will need. Most appliance repair stores carry the igniter. I hope this helps you.

SOURCE: Broiler not working, Oven OK
We have a DCS RG-366 SS L, a 36" gas range and the igniter went out. You could smell gas and the igniter would glow red - but no fire across the broiler.
There is a place in Michigan called RepairClinic.com. We bought a replacement igniter from them and it works like a charm. It was $53 (we live close by and didn't have to have it shipped).
The item number (from the invoice) is 1191 and the box the igniter came in looks like it is manufactured by FSP, code 082005, and there is a larger number on the box that says 786324 IGNTR-OVEN.
Hope this helps.

Did you ever find a solution to this problem? I think my RGA 304 has the same problem, and plan to go looking for that dual valve today... Peter
