My Repair & Advice
Tappen Gas Stove circa 1981 (uses Fridgidaire parts). Unplugged stove from 110 wall outlet. Spark control module located on back side of stove about mid-way down on left side under a black cover that juts out. Black cover had 2 phillips head screws...removed the black cover and the spark module was right there...held on by 2 additional phillips screws. Sprark module purchased was identical to old one on the stove. Removed each wire, one at a time from the old spark module (slide off) and placed on the new module (slide on) in the corresponding location (module is clearly marked). . After all the wires were on the new module, plugged the stove back in and tested each burner ignitor and all worked as it should. Secured spark module back on the stove with the 2 phillips screws and replaced the black cover with the 2 phillips screws. Done. I also purchased new burner grates and drip pans which were identical to the old ones and fit perfect. Old stove looks and works great now.
