Check between each solenoid for 216 Ohms resistance (Broil to Common and Bake to Common). If one of the solenoid is defective, neither one will operate and the gas valve/regulator has to be replaced.

- The part number for the gas valve/regulator is AP3866825

If there is nothing wrong, post the results and we'll proceed with further diagnosis.

I found this post after having the same problem with my oven. The repair man that came to fix it could not figure out the problem until I showed him this post. He tested the solenoid as you instructed. To make a long story short, we replaced the gas valve/regulator and our oven is working great!!! Thank you much!!

You are welcome. I'm glad it was not very complicated.

Cool Whirlpool SF362LXTQ Oven not lighting

Gene... We have a similar problem,,, igniters spark as req'd but oven and broiler burners do not light The resistance across the oven and broiler to common on the control valve each measure about 196 ohms. This is with a cheap tester... whereas it should be 216 ohms... would there be this much error from the cheap tester? Or is does the control valve need to be replaced?

Can you smell or hear the gas open while it's sparking?

No, there is no smell of gas at all. All functions on the electronic panel appear to be working correctly, so I felt the solonoids in the control valve were more likely the problem.

196 Ohms reading looks pretty strange and suspicious. On the other side the gas valve is not cheap and it's better to get a more reliable test result.

- The gas valve/regulator Part number: AP3866825

Part number: AP3866825

What is the complete model number of your range?
