When one burner is in operation, we will get sparking at another burner even though it is turned off. No gas flows so there is no light-off. Sparking is intermittent and happens mainly to the two center burners. When one of the center burners is on it will also spark.
Answer Hello Jeff,
When one ignitor sparks, all of the ignitors spark. When the ignitors spark it is an indication that the spark module isn't sensing the flame at the burner that is lit. This means that you either have an ignitor failing, a poor ground, or the spark module is going into failure.
I've changed the potentiometers and still get a spark, but no gas to both the central and low burners. Now I've ordered the simmer control unit. How do I test the solenoid if necessary and are there any other parts to test?
Answer Hello Richard,
While you can test the solenoid, this doesn't test if the solenoid is opening the valve. If the burners that are connected to the solenoid are the ones that are inoperative, the solenoid 00411253
is usually the problem. The simmer control will not control the gas, but is a control for the ignition and re-ignition of the burners.
