Frigidaire Gas Oven with EOC


I have a frigidare gas range with EOC. About a week ago the oven stopped working. The broiler feature doesn't work and neither does the bake feature. I started with the ignitor as many posts I read said this was the problem 90% of the time. I could tell that my ignitor wasn't glowing so it seemed fair enough that is was an ignitor problem. Well that wasn't it. When the ignitor didn't fix the problem I decided to check everything I could think of for continuity. The ignitor is fine. The gas safety valve is fine. The sensor bar is fine. I also checked from the wires that connect from the harness that fits onto the EOC down to the ignitor/gas safety valve and they seem fine. So what next?? the only other thing I can think of is that the EOC is bad. It's about $100 to replace and I don't want to waste money if there is something else I can check. I will say that when I turn on the oven(bake or broil)the light on the display flashes for about 3secs and then I can hear a click coming from the EOC board. Then I can hear a faint humming coming from the board. I am assuming the click I hear is a relay closing?? Is there a way to test to see if power is getting down to the ignitor? I don't want to electrocute myself!!! I've already taken this thing further than I thought I'd need to, and since I have spent so much time and energy, I really don't want to have to call a repair man. Help a girl out!! Please =)

Best advice I can give is to read, or learn to read and understand the wiring diagram/schematic. It's like feeding a man a fish VS. teaching him how to fish.

I'm guessing it's a hot surface ignitor? Is it getting hot? Usually you can see them.
Generally there are a lot of safety features in gas appliances. To make sure it doesn't blow up the house. Usually some sort of sequence and if it fails to complete a step it quits. It's going to start the ignitor and then after a few seconds open the gas valve. If there is not ignition then it will turn everything off.
