The broiler, and oven both went out simultaneously. Neither would light, (not even a click) nor would gas flow to them when turned on. The warm up timer just kept ticking as though nothing was wrong.

According to the manual tucked behind the oven, if one solenoid on the gas safety valve/regulator doesn't work, neither will work. It indicated that from the center (common) pin to each of the others, it should read 216 ohms. Mine read 200 to one side, none to the other. I ordered a replacement, had a buddy tip the oven up for easy access while I went at it with a screw driver and some line wrenches. Swapped it out and she works like a dream now.
