How to fix a Whirlpool-Kenmore gas range with no gas coming out the cooktop surface burners

Posted by Samurai Appliance Repair Man , in Oven-Range-Stove Repair 05 August 2011 · 2,107 views

The real solution was listed in the tech sheet provided below by RegUS_PatOff

A normally closed (N.C.) electrical solenoid
is located on the back of the range that will
provide a means of shutting off the gas
supply to the cooktop burners. This 120-volt
solenoid is connected across the L1 and
Neutral sides of the line and controlled by a
relay on the microcomputer board. See
Strip Circuit, page 3.
The solenoid is held open to allow gas to
flow to the cooktop burners. If a customer
wants to “Lockout” the operation of the
cooktop burners, they can hold down the
TOP/TOP LIGHT keypad on the control
panel for 5 seconds.
See Use and Care
This will open the relay and disconnect the
electrical supply to the solenoid. Once the
electrical supply is disconnected from the
solenoid, the solenoid will close and stop
gas flow to the cooktop. In the event of a
power outage, the gas supply to the
cooktop burners will be shut off.
