No gas to burners - Whirlpool Gold gs563lxss0 Range

15 May 2015 - 04:41 PM


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

Range has a non functioning right front burner. Burner element ohms out within spec, and all wiring connections pass visual and continuity checks, so it should be a control board issue.


Replacement board has different part number than shown in service manual, so probably just an upgrade.


New board has identical molex and ribbon connectors in roughly the same positions,  BUT, the board also has what appear to be bake and broil power relays, ( there is a separate oven board in the range???) , and there are 4 male spades on the new board that I just can't make any sense of.


They are marked on both boards as tabs 9, 10, 11, and 12, but wiring the new board using the tab numbers from the service manual results in the right burner being powered on continuously, and not responding to the controls. 


I don't have the option to test each potential configuration, since this range is in a rental unit, and the tenant is quickly losing patience.


Does anyone know the correct wiring for the upgraded board, and if so, would you please share?
