How do you remove the old igniter? My cooktop is fixed in place. Thanks
Answer Hello D.J.,
Remove the burner cap and remove the burner fastening ring. This can usually be accomplished by putting the tips of a pair of needlenosed pliers into the grooves in the ring and use a screwdriver in the pliers handles for leverage. You will need to turn off the gas and disconnect the power. Raise the burner, unplug the wire from the igniter and remove the clip securing the igniter to the top assembly. Remove the igniter and install the new igniter in reverse order. Before re-assembly, place a small amount of any kind of grease, (lard does fine), to prevent seizing of the fastening ring.
The video showing the ignitor installation is not the same as my stove, The Dacor model eg486. how do you get to the ignitor?
Answer Jackson 15,
When you lift the burner cap off there will be a burner fastening ring in the center of the burner base. Remove this ring and you will be able to lift the base off with the igniter and uplug the igniter. From this point replace igniter and reassemble. You will want to check the igniter wire as well.
How to do you change the top burner spark ignitor for model ERD48S24?
Answer Hello Barbara. You will need to turn off the gas and disconnect the power. Then remove the venturi and the burners from the unit. Once removed, you will want to lift the cook top and access the bottom of the igniter. Unplug the wire from the igniter and remove the clip securing the igniter to the top assembly. Remove the igniter and install the new igniter in reverse order.
