I replaced the control board on a Sears range because the oven glow bar igniter would not glow. I checked the 110 volts going to it and there was none.  The board fixed that problem. I  turned the oven on bake and it lit after about 90 seconds. I turned the oven off and the igniter and the gas burner went out. I decided to try it one more time before I left and turned the oven on again. Sure enough the oven lit. I turned the oven off and the burner stayed on even though the igniter had quit glowing. I unplugged the stove and the burner was still burning. I turned off the gas supply to the stove. What could be the problem? The gas valve or the safety valve?

Part number: AP2131109

Part number: AP2131109

One oven burner, one valve. It should only pass gas when the igniter is red hot.

In the video, the parts replacement person is shown to be putting thread sealant in the threads of the nut .....If my memory does not fail me, that is incorrect....The sealing of that type of connection is at the 'compression ring' on the tubing, You tighten the nut till the compression ring seats on both sides of the 'ring', hence " Compression Fitting"........Secondly, he installs the valve and then starts the nut, again another mistake..The valve should be loosely held or partially mounted so there is no chance if "cross-threading " the threads........The nut should be run down  till it bottoms out by hand then tighten by a " Flair  Nut" type wrench and another wrench  ( back up) on the nut flats on the valve .......................... I can see a parts changing monkey installing per the video, cross threading the nut to valve , grunting to tighten it till he torques it off the rear wall of the range..............He sez " The sealant will stop any leaks"....................
