    Behind the stove. Just take out the 4 or so screws holding the stove in place and slide it forward. Doesn't need to be removed completely. You'll see the gas line running into the valve (ours was green). Just remove the valve and connect the two lines together.

    Hi all, can someone tell me exactly where it is located?

    Fireman, our gas valve solenoid was giving us problems too. A couple posts above yours I mentioned that I took ours out altogether. It is only there as a safety device so one doesn't run the stove/oven with the lid down. We don't have any problem remembering to lift the lid beforehand, so the valve is unnecessary in our case.

    Have an issue with the electro-magnetic switch that operates the gas solenoid. The magnetic switch that is supposed to be mounted to the lift mechanism apparently had shifted position and fell from the mechanism. DRV Supplied replacement magnet switch(s). After re mounting the switch, the gas valve solenoid operates intermittently. When the magnet is hand held, the gas valve solenoid operates consistently. Now DRV suggests that the gas valve solenoid be replaced. Put in a manual toggle switch to solve the immediate issue. Will be taking unit to factory for this and other issues, in late spring.

    Update. Just want to say that Greg did respond this morning. Don't want anyone to think DRV is not responsive to customers. He even offered to pay for someone to install the valve. That won't be necessary.

    I had to disconnect our gas valve behind the stove/oven. Every time we raised the stove lid the kitchen/living room slide fuse would blow and the valve became extremely hot. Couldn't even touch the thing for more than a second.

    The valve is only there to keep a person from operating the stove/oven with the lid down. I just put a union between the two gas lines and everything works fine now.

    The stove top has it's own fuse (#18) in the fuse panel and it has never blown. Only the kitchen/living room slide fuse would blow when lifting the stove lid. I'm assuming they wired the valve into the slide lights instead of giving it its own 12v source.

    Voice mail and email sent to Greg Weldon. Still waiting on a response.

    If you don't have a stove top cover, then no--and no gas valve, either.

    We have a residential fridge and an induction cook top - I presume this does not apply to us at all? Am I correct?

    Sounds like a solenoid valve - energize to open - when the stove top cover is up. The coil part of the valve will be warm due to small current flowing through it to hold the valve open. When cover is down, valve de-energises and an internal spring closes it.

    Yikes, we just checked ours and it's warm. The stovetop was up, we closed it and will check it later. Hmmmm

    I can't answer exactly to whether it ought to be warm to the touch or not, but it is a valve that is connected to the range cover. It is designed so that the valve is closed when the cover is down, thus no gas getting to any burner. When the cover is raised, it opens the valve. When we replaced our RV fridge with a residential, I removed a ground wire that was attached to the gas line and going to ground. After that, our range wouldn't work. The valve is grounded through the copper gas line, so I had to hook that back up. Good thing I hadn't thrown it away.

    started a topic Gas Valve

    Gas Valve

    There is a valve in the cabinet between the stove and the frig that I assume has something to do with the gas. Is it supposed to be warm to the touch when nothing is running? This is in a 2012 TKSB3
