I believe my right front burner's igniter switch is bad. I get a spark on all 4 burners when I turn 3 of the 4 switches to "light", but not this one. Now to replace it, I had to cut off the 3 tiny screws per burner and remove the 4 bowls. Now the entire unit lifts up, but I need to remove the glass top from the housing in order to get to the switch. Is it just glued? I can't just pry because it is glass and there may be a clip somewhere. thanks, Hugo
Answer Hugo, You're pretty much on target, it does sound like the igniter switch WB24T10071 has failed, probably due to water or a spill over when cooking. Once you've removed the screws,burner bases and knobs, you should be able to lift the glass cooktop off the burner box base. There usually is a foam "cushion" seal between the glass and the burner box, it can hold the glass down and be a bit difficult at times. You may need to slide a putty knife or other flat blade tool between the glass and burner box, but be very careful, The glass is tempered high temperature glass and can shatter at the least bit of pressure. The replacement screws and washers are WB1X1420D and WB1X1421D. You also need to remove power, and turn off the gas to the cooktop before you start. And be very careful with the burner and tubes when you separate the drip bowls from the burner bases.
Hi,the left burner doesnt click but will ignite manually. I replaced the electrode. It didnt work. What do you think the igniter?
Answer Hello John. Based on the information you provided, it sounds like the spark module WB13K25 is bad and will need to be replaced. Hope this helps.
