I replaced the spark module and the igniter switches at the gas control valve, but the right front burner continues to ignite when there is a flame present.
ANSWER Hello Greg,
If you can light the burner with a match with the gas valve off, the gas valve is bad and must be replaced. You should turn the gas off to the unit until the repair has been completed for your safetys' sake. You need to order 12002342 for the right front burner and replace the valve before turning the gas back on to the unit. Check for leaks with lightly soaped water, (one teaspoon liquid soap to a quart of water). If this mixture is mixed with too much soap, the thickness of the soap will stop the leak since the gas pressure is so low. NEVER USE AN OPEN FLAME TO CHECK FOR GAS LEAKS.
