The ignition system sparks on all burners intermittently without even turning any burners on. Does this indicate the control unit needs to be replaced?
Answer Hello Ken,
This is most likely a failed potentiometer. You will need to order kit number 00497234 because the new style potentiometers are incompatible with the old simmer controllers. Likewise, the new simmer controllers are incompatible with the old potentiometers. This circuit has been re-designed and all parts must be replaced at the same time to prevent damage to the new parts.
One burner will not spark even after I replaced the ignition head. What is the next part I should look at replacing? Thanks
Answer Hello Chris,
After you check for a proper ground to the burner head, verify that the ignitor wire 00189337 is not shorted or pinched. If it looks ok, the ignitor 00189324 would be the next most likely suspect.
