I just ordered two new igniters for my range. I changed one a few years ago but don't remember EXACTLY how I removed the old one. I remember that the place where I bought the part said that they become very hard to remove after a time and you need to drive them out with force after a number of years. I can't remember for sure if I drove the old igniter down (I think that was what I did) or up. Can you confirm the removal of the old one. I watched your video but it is not like mine range at all except the very basic steps.
Answer Hello Don,
You will need to turn power off to the unit and verify the power is off if turned off at the breaker. Now remove the burner cap and the nut in the center of the "star" burner. It will remove by turning it counterclockwise. Now you will be able to lift the burner base. The ignitor wire will be unplugged from the bottom of the ignitor and the burner, when turned over, has a clip holding the ignitor to the burner base. Remove this clip and the ignitor will slide out of the4 top of the burner base. Install the new ignitor in the reverse order of the removal. Reinstall the ignitor wire and set the burner base back in position. Now you should put some anti-seize compound, (fancy name for high temperature grease), on the threads of the center nut. This will make it much easier to remove next time. Re-assemble the remaining parts in the reverse order of the dis-assembly and re-establish power to the unit.
Front left burner spark ignitor not working to ignite gas burner. All other ignitors working fine. I have cleaned the ignitor. No cracks in the porcelin part of the ignitor seen. Ignitor feels just slightly loose, has a little wiggle in it, unlike the other ignitors. I can, however, just barely see a spark down below the surface where the ignitor comes through, but it is not above the level of the burner enough to light the burner. The spark is apparently finding another ground somewhere below where it is supposed to. My question is how to access and remove the ignitor? Does the burner come out, and if so, how? I suspect replacing the ignitor is a simple job, and I see you have it in stock, I just don't know how to access it to replace it. Thanks for your help.
Answer Neal, It does sound like the ignitor has a crack or chip in the porcelain under the top, or a loose /shorted connector. It can be simple and easy, but not very often. You'll need to remove the "star" burner cap 00189015 then the venturi tube nut 00189023 these have a tendency to seize to the jet holder 00188976 and can create a bit of a big issue (quite often they need to be cut off),once off you can lift the burner base 00488372 off the top.Then you can carefully lift the burner mount tray off the support rail and remove the wires to the igniter and change out the igniter.
One of the burners does not automatically start - there is a "bomp" when you turn the knob but no click for the automatic lighting. What part do I need and how do I install it?
Answer Hi. Clean and make sure the burner cap is placed correctly on the top of the burner for the Spark Electrode (igniter) part # 00415124. It is common for the spark igniter that is ceramic wrapped, will crack and then the spark will short off to the nearest ground (bare metal) top. For some reason, the clip 00189322 is separate. Thank You.
