I have a KitchenAid gas range KGRI801PBL00 that likely has a bad DSI module (oven spark module W10331686).  Oven and broiler will not ignite and neither attempts to make a spark.  I checked the thermal fuse on the back of the stove and it's good; has continuity.  All other functions of stove work properly.

 

The problem I have is how do I remove the DSI module?  It is located underneath the cooktop atop the oven cavity where there is limited space and the mounting screw is vertical as if it was assembled from the factory without the entire cooktop in place.  Do I have to remove the cooktop?  If so, how do I do that?  Exploded views of the stove do not help and the 9757666 tech sheet is missing.  Do you have this tech sheet in your inventory?

The DSI can be accessed from the front of the unit after removing the control panel. The short gas manifold aids in the removal. Remove the mounting screws from the DSI board, and then slide it forward as far as the wiring will allow. Disconnect the wiring from the board connectors.

Have you check the bake and broil coils on the oven safety valve first, if either coil is bad neither bake or broil will work.

 

You will usually get just a spark or two and it will stop but gas will never flow.

 

Checking the safety valve coils would be the first and easiest thing to do before having to get to the DSI board.

I have the control panel removed.  The problem I'm having is that phillips screw that secures the DSI module points to the ground and there's only 1" clearance above the screw, thus it's too close to use a stubby screwdriver.  I guess I could try using the phillips tip of a multi-tip screwdriver held in needle nose pliers to remove the screw.  I tried using a 1/4 drive rachet with a 1/4" socket and short phillips tip but that arrangement was too tall to fit in the space.

 

No, I didn't check the resistance of the oven valve coils because there is no spark whatsoever when either bake or broil is selected.  The auxiliary electric heating element turns on and stays on so I've concluded that the electronic oven control board is good.

The DSI board is mounted onto a plate, the entire plate slides forward before you can access that screw that points down. The screw that releases the DSI plate is below and to the right of the DSI, facing forward.

Got the DSI board out and replaced it.  Old board had a nice burn through on it.  Oven still doesn't work however because the oven dual gas valve is bad. One coil measures no resistance whatsoever.

 

My stove is a KitchenAid KGRI801PBL00 and the proper oven gas valve is p/n 9763716.  Is it possible to substitute p/n 9761959 instead?  Both valves look exactly the same so what's the difference?  Will the substitute gas valve work?

Why do you not want to use the correct one?  It is actually cheaper then the wrong one and both seem to be available everywhere.

 

From all the pictures they appear to be the same but there has to be some difference or they would not have two different parts, (it could very well just be the orifice hood size and the LP pin size - each oven that the two different valves are used on may have a higher or lower BTU rating the the other).
