Here's my problem, I have Tappan stove model number Tgf363aud and the oven does not turn on. My first impression, was that the ignitor went bad so I replaced it and nothing happened not even a glow. Just to make sure the ignitor was working i bypass the gas valve by jumping it and wawla the ignitor bar turned orange. So im thinking that the gas valve went bad causing the oven not to turn on. What do you guys think before i go by this expensive part that i probaly dont need.
Thanks

It's not a good idea to test anything with bypassing.
It's better to test using a meter for volts or OHMs.
The Ignitor and the Gas Valve are in series.
Normally the Ignitor receives 117v and the Gas Valve receives 3v.
If you bypass certain parts (the Ignitor), you'd be putting 120v on the gas Valve and ruin it instantly.

yes, bad Gas Valve
