For Whirlpool Top Burner Spark Igniter (Part Number: AP4093621)

Answer or Comment

View all Questions

None of my top burner ignitors are sparking. I have fixed this in the past by cleaning them and/or running them all hot for a while (I expected that one was shorted out). I had no luck this time. I've read that a likely cause is the spark module, but this stove is sealed in and getting it out and back in is going to require considerable work. Are there other parts I should consider replacing or tests I can run first that do not require pulling out the unit? I have some electrical knowledge and a multimeter. Also, if I had to, I'd probably just live with manually igniting the burners before pulling out the unit or spending a lot of $$ on a relatively cheap range. Thanks!

ANSWER Hello Oz, you could have a defective spark module 8215557. This part is what creates the spark on all the burners, if none of the burners are sparking this part could be culprit. Thanks!
