This safety valve ensures that no gas is released until the igniter has received the proper voltage needed to ignite the gas range.
This part works with the following brands: Frigidaire, Gibson, Kelvinator, Kenmore, Tappan & White-Westinghouse.
This part fixes the following symptoms:
I first unplugged the power cord and raised the range top and shut off gas supply to oven. then i removed the broiler drawer. Then using the adjustable wrench i loosened and removed the gas supply line from safety valve. Then using the philips head screw driver i removed the 2 screws holding the heat sheild surounding the valve. Then i unplugged the 2 wires on the valve body. then i removed the 3 screws from valve bracket and removed the valve. Install in reverse order and adjust gas orfice for proper burner flame using adjustable wrench. takes about 30 mins. I have done this repair once befor so i kinda knew what i was doing from the get go!!!! I had the new part i had ordered from this site in just 3 days!!!

I installed the new oven igniter and gas safety valve, without a hitch. And with the 4 new burner grates it looks and runs brand new! I must add that I had cleaned and painted the whole unit, even the clock keeps perfect time. Best Regards, Robert of Rochester Hills, Michigan 48307
I determined the safety valve must be defective. The model number of the Okeefe-Merrit/Tappan/Frigidaire/Electrolux stove (27 yrs old) could not be found online nor at Frigidaire's parts call center. However, due to Partselect's most helpful picture parts pages, I was able to find my valve with the part number clearly showing for me to see. No picture, no resolution. The info sheet with the part was beneficial and placement time was 15 minutes. I raised the cook top and removed the fuse in the back, right corner and shut off gas at front left corner. After using meter to be sure there was no power, I marked the wires as front and back, disconnected them using needle nose, disconnected gas line using two wrenches, removed three screws in retaining bracket before sliding unit out. Installation was the reverse.With fuse replaced before installation I measured 120 volts across the two wires. (Don't try to do it hot.) When attached to the valve the measure went down to 2.9 volts. After installation and all restored, it took about 1 to 1 1/2 minutes for ignition. I may have saved myself the purchase of a new stove just now, but after 27 years I think she is going to want a new kitchen. It was worth the repair and Partselect was prompt with the delivery. Happiness returns to a disgruntled cook.
