The stove top burners work fine. The control panel allows me to set an oven temp & shows that it is preheating, but no flame in the oven. The oven & broiler both fail to light. The igniters do not appear to get hot. If either one would lite then I would just replace the other igniter, but for them both to quit working on the same day leads me to believe that something else might be wrong. Could it be an electrical issue of sending power to the igniters?

Re: Oven & Broiler quit working on same day.
Yes, I think you have the answer. If you have the knowledge, check the electrical supply side, fuse etc. Check out your user manual in the fault finding section. The oven has a thermo switch that prevents the gas opening if theres no ignition.

Probably the safety valve. This unit broils and bakes off the same gas burner. A spark ignitor lights the pilot and this save gas because no standing pilot is needed. It takes a few minutes for the thermocouple bimetal combo to release the gas. When the temp gets to the desired rate then the bulb on the oven control closes off the flow of gas. To recap: The flow of gas comes from a regulator along a rail which supplys the gas to the top burners and the oven control. older models had pilot light tubing going down to the oven and to the top burners. This newer style uses a spark module to light off the top burners and the oven. So when yall turn the the oven on the spark ignitor lights the pilot first and then after the mercury bulf thermocouple heats up the bimetal inside the valve opens allowing gas to flow out to the pilot and ignite the gas burner. the temp rises and the mercury bulb oven control expands closing off the flow but not the gas safety valve. I would suspect the safety valve on this one.
The burners and its components are totally seperate from oven and there is no controlling shared between them. The problem can be many. Can be the timer control that is locked and not allowing any oven functions. Can be the electricline feeding the oven portion. Can be the oven temp control that tells bake and broil to begin functioning. Can be oven lockout. This is a function that you can turn off by holding the clock or other pad button for 3 seconds. Check your manual to see if I am correct about which touch pad to hold. This is a safety feature that sometimes gets activated and there's no flashing lights telling you about it. Goodluck<Macgivor
