Bake burner operates, but the broil burner
will not come on.
a) Place the oven in the BROIL mode,
set the oven thermostat to 350˚, and
observe the broil igniter. If the igniter
glows, go to step c. If the igniter does
not glow, go to step b.
b) Disconnect power from the range, re-
move the wires from the broil side of
the gas safety valve, and connect an
ohmmeter across the terminals of the
safety valve. If the meter reads ap-
proximately 1 Ω, the problem is in
another component of the broil circuit.
If the meter reads infinity, replace the
gas safety valve.
c) Connect an ampmeter to the broil cir-
cuit. If the meter reads less than 3.2
amps, replace the broil igniter. If the
meter reads over 3.2 amps, replace
the gas safety valve.
3.

serve the bake igniter. Place the oven
in the BROIL mode, and observe the
broil ignitor.

b) Disconnect power from the range and
remove the wires from both sides of
the gas safety valve. Check each side
of the valve with an ohmmeter. If the
meter reads approximately 1 Ω on each
side of the gas safety valve, the prob-
lem is in another component. If the
meter reads infinity on either side of
the valve, replace the valve.

cord. If the igniter is not glowing, re-
place the gas safety valve.
