Have a Whirlpool gs563lxss0 range with no fuel to the surface burners.
The range had been working up to this point, and the bake and broil still work, as well as the spark module for the top burners.
Removed the molex plug at the cooktop gas lockout valve, and got an infinite resistance reading, so the valve is shot.
Tested the output from the control board at the molex connector and got 1.8 vac at rest, jumping to 8.5 and then back down to 1.8 as self clean cycle in activated ( we NEVER use self clean BTW) Is this normal output voltage, or is the control board malfunctioning as well.
Also, would it be possible to simply plumb around the valve in order to get gas to the top burners, or does the valve serve another purpose other than just preventing the use of top burners during the clean cycle?
The parts alone to fix are more than $400, and if I don't need it...
Thanks for your help
