Question about Kenmore Kitchen Ranges
I was given a gently used kenmore model 66575775890 free standing oven, in excellent condition, by a family member. after transporting it home, then converting it to run LP, the stove top works great but both the broiler and bake burners don't work. the igniters do work, they both glow VERY bright and hot. there is no sound of gas coming out nor is there any gas smell. i checked the gas safety valve and it shows just under 3 ohms resistance normal. any ideas?
You converted it to LPG. Did you also convert the oven nozzles?.
Because they need to be converted too.
Kind regards, Dik

Most likely a hot-surface ignitor has failed. If it doesn't consume enough current, the gas valve won't open. It's usually a fairly easy fix, once you gain access to the ignitor and have a new one to replace it with. Make sure you unplug the range...

It appears your thermostat/probe has failed in this instance.
For replacement parts - head on over to PartSelect.com or RepairClinic.com and enter in your full model number for a full parts listing.
I recommend both sites because ...
FixYa has no affiliation with either site - I have been using and recommending them for years - trouble free.
PartSelect has a great schematic database for locating the part on your unit and great "testimonials" for each part that often times includes HOW-TO information.
RepairClinic has pictures of each part they sell and also a great how-to and troubleshooting for basic repairs.
If your unit has never been serviced - there should still be an original service manual enclosed in plastic taped to the inside of the shell.
In the service manual are Error codes, maintenance procedures, and troubleshooting steps you can follow.
Anything too complicated or beyond your scope should be handled by a professional.
If you think you want to tackle the repair - and have gotten stuck on a step - reply to your question and I will be glad to help you out.

Tips for a great answer:
oven control supplies voltage to the oven igniter/gas valve circuit. When the
oven control is set to Bake, voltage is supplied to the oven igniter which
should glow bright red to almost white hot. Once the igniter comes on and
begins to glow it must pull enough current to cause the gas valve to open so
the burner can ignite from the igniter. I added an image below with the theory
of operation. Click this link:--http://media.fotki.com/1_p,swbbsqrsgstsqkkxgtqsskgwtqkq,vi/wrgtsbrktxwdfwfbgdg/1/1303472/5961857/image5576034710104836299img-or.png
the broiler drawer and then set the oven control to bake and watch to see if
the glow bar igniter glows or not. If it does not glow, the failure could be a
broken Igniter, failed oven control board or gas valve. If the igniter is
glowing red, then it can be possible that gas valve is faulty. To see how
igniter looks. See the fig below:--
To order this part click the link below:--
Also to confirm, check to see if the igniter is getting 120 volts
when it's turned on. If it gets 120 volts, then your safety gas valve is bad
because it's not letting the neutral go through. Otherwise, if it's NOT getting
120 volts, your control board shorted out and you need a new control board.
But as you mentioned that control board is replaced. So igniter should get 120 volts. If valve is faulty. But if igniter is not glowing then its faulty igniter confirmed.
To see how gas valve looks,
please click the link below:---
In most of the cases the igniter is faulty, because gas
valve getting faulty is very rare. But still getting the voltages checked, will
confirm. These will help. Thanks. Helpmech.
