Whirlpool Gas Oven

Model # SF 362LX5Q 0

Gas burners are working fine.  Oven is not lighting.  I replaced the ignitor.  Still not lighting.  No smell of gas when trying to light.  I even took a lighter and tried to light the oven when the gas was turned on.  Nothing.  It's like the gas isn't getting to the oven, but it's getting to the top burners, which has me confused. 

Any help/ideas would be greatly appreciated.  Thanks,

Dave

The Bake and Broil function both don't work ?

Has this Oven worked OK up til now at this location ?

Has there been any recent House electrical work done ?

Stove has always worked at this location. Only 4 years old.
No recent electric work done.

A bad / loose connection at the Spark Module ground Screw
will prevent the Oven Ignitors to light.

OR a bad Spark Module

As RegUs says, make sure all gounding is good, that's very important on these DSI spark systems.

If either of the coils in the oven gas valve/regulator assembly are open neither bake or broil will work.

You need to remove the center wire of the three wires on the gas valve and check the ohm reading of the center terminal to the upper terminal and the center terminal to the lower terminal.  I forget what the actual reading are but right now where just need to know if one is open.

If either of the coils read as open you will need to replace the complete gas safety valve/regulator assembly.

William...thanks. Quick question though. If I do need to replace the complete gas safety valve/regulator assembly, how much am I talking? I'm wondering if this fix is worth it.
