How to do you change the top burner spark ignitor for model ERD48S24?
Answer Hello Barbara. You will need to turn off the gas and disconnect the power. Then remove the venturi and the burners from the unit. Once removed, you will want to lift the cook top and access the bottom of the igniter. Unplug the wire from the igniter and remove the clip securing the igniter to the top assembly. Remove the igniter and install the new igniter in reverse order.
When turing on the front center burner, it will spark and light, but the sparker keeps sparking after it lights. What is the cause of this?
Answer Hello Joe. Check and make sure there is good grounding on the burner and the burner is clean. If so, you will need to replace the spark module 86527 on the unit it is bad.
Hello I also need to know how to replace this part. The top on my model doesn't come up.Is it riveted in? I am not certain how to get this part off. Thank you.
Answer Hi Howard. Turn off the gas supply and the power. Remove the grates and the burner caps from the cook top. Remove the knobs from the controls. Using a 25/32" (20mm) socket, unscrew and remove the venturi from each of the burner bases and then lift the burner base and rubber O-rings from the maintop. Carefully lift the front of the maintop and prop it up w/ a board or a hammer handle. Unplug the wire from the igniter pin you need to replace. Igniter part # 76482-001. Unsnap the e-ring from the igniter body groove and remove the igniter from the cook top. Install the igniter and reinstall the cook top. Thank You.
When you turn the gas on and it ignites the spark, well not quite on two burners. Can the ignitor be the problem?
Answer Hi Bill. Yes, very common that ignitors crack and short out. This part # is 76482-001. The burner caps also need to be "cleaned" regurallry with a small brass brush to insure the ground path is correct. Make sure that the burner caps are set back on correctly also. Thank you.
