Question and Answers


Oven will not light WFG231LVQ0 Whirlpool Free standing - gas


Hello, glad to help.  Thank You for choosing Sears We, at Sears, we value your business.
I am sorry and do understand your frustration when there is problems with the range.
Glad to help out.  I’m looking at your Whirlpool Range model number WFG231LVQ0.

I would first test the ignitors, the upper broil and lower bake ignitors.

How to test gas igniters for ranges:

1.  Unplug the oven from the wall for your safety.

2.  Lower the oven door.  Sometimes best to have more room and just remove it.

3.  Remove the oven racks from inside.  Remove the lower panel when testing the bake igniter.

4.  Remove the burner shield by taking out the screws that secure it to igniter first.

5.  Next take out the screws that hold the igniter.  Pull the igniter away from the oven wall. Unclip the wire connector.  If the wire connector is not accessible, remove the back rear panel to the oven, or remove the bottom storage drawer to access the wire connector.

6.  Get a multi meter to the lowest setting so you can measure the Ohms of resistance.  Calibrate the meter. Refer to your meters instructions

7.  Place one of the terminals on the ovens bake igniter's terminal with one of the multi meters probes.  Then touch the other terminal with the other probe.

8.  Check the multi meter's display. If the meter does not move, displaying a resistance of any numbers on the Ohms of resistance, there is no continuity.   If no continuity then the bake igniter is bad.

You have the gas valve which you have changed, but there is also a gas regulator that needs adjusted or get a new one.

If you do not feel confident repairing this problem yourself, then you can have it repaired at your home by a Sears technician. Here is a link for the website:
