connect everything, turn oven ON and check these again:

red to L1 = 120v

red to ground = 3 volts

make sure your using a good ground (not painted, ect)

I double checked and it seems reversed but the red to ground is reading 120 and red to L1 is now 11-12v while the bake function is turned on to 550. I may require a brief intermission to collect my thoughts...

Could this have occured when my husband arched the thing putting the meter on Amps while checking it? I only ask as I am confused about how the ignitor fits into all of this as it still does not light and the broil function is working.

yes.

the 120v should flow through the ignitor and then through the gas valve.

and I think you found the bad BAKE ignitor location (the one previously removed).

Okay.. Back at it. Can we go any further while waiting for the new gas valve? (ie check other circuits and order all the parts at the same time) Is it worth it for this type of range being 12 yrs old?

if you turn off the gas valve at the wall, you could try swapping the RED & YELLOW wires to see if the new BAKE element now glows (if you can see it).

Don't forget to swap them back and turn the gas valve back on.

We have been doing all of these tests and measurments with the gas disconnected. Just checked the resistance of the two ignitors disconnected. The suspect one reads nothing and the other reads 160 ohms. Am I correct in concluding that it was the bake ignitor (that escaped notice) and we have messed things up further when we messed with the dual gas valve. Is it possible to just mess up the red terminal on the dual gas valve alone and have preserved the function of the yellow and white? How can this be. If we fried the gas valve wouldn't the broil function be lost also???

By the way..... Thank you again soooo much!

yellow wire is female and red is male. Won't fit into each others terminals:(. I think we are hitting a wall. Husband throwing in the towel. I think the plan is a new dual gas valve and try the new ignitor tomorrow. Microwave dinners for another day:?

dual gas valve: there's (2) coils in the gas valve and (2) valves.

one for BAKE & one for BROIL.

the BAKE (red one)  probably got fried when the sparks occured.

you could just jumper across the RED & WHITE terminals to test the oven ignitor.

Thanks to all who helped out! Once the fried gas valve was replaced - along with the initial replacement of the ignitor - we are back in business!! Lesson learned to double check that meter - could have saved ourselves $150.

THANKS!
