My ignitor goes on ok, but the burner goes on for ten seconds and off for ten seconds. What could cause this?
Answer Hello Abe,
Sounds like the ignitor WB13K21 is breaking down or the gas valve WB19K36 is failing. If there is rust in the burner WB16K10035, it could be the sole cause as this causes a change in the air flow which affects the gas burn.
I had a short on the ignitor at the connection. I changed the ignitor and still wont light. The oven works fine as also the top range.
Answer Hi Ed. Which igniter still does not work ? Forgive my confusion but you say the top is ok and the oven ? OK you had a shorted wire. Which inevitably shorts out the wire harness (stove top) part # WB18K6. You need to see if the wires at the top burner switch part # WB24K14 is shorted or the switch is open when it is supposed to be electrically closed transferring the voltage to the spark module part # WB13K25. You may have a shorted module output transformer. Use a volt/ohm meter part #@ TJMA-DM1 to assist you in your diagnostics.It will be advantageous to find the supplied tech sheet inside the cabinet to aid you in the diagnosis. It allows you to follow the electrical wring circuit. Thank You.
