how do I replace an electrode on this unit? The video applies to a different model.
Answer Hello John. To remove the ignitor you will remove the screws securing the burner bowls to the burner. Once removed then you will disconnect the electrode wire from electrode. Electrode should be able to be removed at this time. Make sure power supply to unit is turned off.
After replacing all of the burner igniters, wiring and the electrode clips, one burner continues to arc a spark. Is there a special way to install the electrode clips which if too much play, is causing this sparking or did I do something else incorrectly?
Answer Hello Bill,
If you are referring to the surface ignitor sparking after the burner is lit, you will need to make sure ground is sufficient to the burner area. The ground, if lost, will cause the spark module to not be able to read the resistance of the flame. This is how the manufacturer solved the issue of the flame blowing out. The spark module is designed to spark as soon as the module doesn't see the circuit resistance with the flame. If the ground is present and sufficient to the burner area that is giving the issue, you either have a bad spark module WB13T10046 or, (less likely but possible), a bad start switch WB18T10339.
Does your part number APO2020568 include the red wire shown in the installation video?
The electrode WB13K18 does not come with the igniter wires and we would need to have the complete model number to be able to locate the wire needed.
