Looking to replace the ignitor could I get instructions before getting the part to see if I can get this apart. Please any service manual?
Unfortunately we do not have a service manual for this unit. To remove the igniter you will have to lift the cooktop from installation and turn off gas and power supply. Take the grates, drip pans and burner caps. Once you have this off and the unit is out of the opening, you will then want to remove the screws that hold the burners in place and the screws around the perimeter of the burner box. Remove the knobs and if there are screws under the knobs remove them. Lift the top off and you can change out the igniter.
Two of the four surface burners light. The other two when turned on click but do not light. Both burners that click but not light can be lit using a flame. Does this sound light a bad spark electrode or a bad spark ignightor switch. Thank you for your help.
You will want to check to make sure that the electrode is positioned properly. A electrode that is not positioned properly will cause light issue. If this checks ok then you would want to check the electrode to make sure that there are not cracks in the insulation. This issue would be more like caused by the electrode if the unit clicks when you try to light but just not lighting.
I have a Creda cooktop GHH100 and I need replacement igniter electrodes. Can you help?
Answer Hello Bruce
To properly assist you we will need your model number to help you with this. Please post your model number with a new question on the parts page. http://www.appliancepartspros.com/modelnumber_locator.aspx
If 2 of the 4 burners ignitors spark and light, but 2 do not spark. Does that mean the top ignitor is bad. If I disconnect the wires and hold them close to metal they spark but not when connected to the burner. Thanks.
Answer Hello Alan,
This either means you have a bad ignitor, or you have lost the ground to that ignitor. The ground is established through the metal parts of the body and they tend to loose the ground from spills that get down between the pieces of metal that have to make electrical contact so ground will be present beside the ignitor so the spark can discharge to it. Many times cleaning the unit up by removing screws and panels will re-establish the ground and no parts are necessary. This is assuming of course that the ignitor is good. Any cracks in the ignitors' porcelain insulator requires that the ignitor be replaced.
The stove top right side burners spark, but will not ignite. The left side spark and do ignite. What part needs to be replaced?
Answer Hello Tim. If you can light it with a match, then you may need to look for a dirty burner causing the issue. If it can not be lit with a match, you will need to check and see if the valve is bad and needs to be replaced.
I bought the igniters from you, fast shipping, thank's. But now I can't get the 3 tiny screws off that hold the burners to the main top cover to replace them. What size are the heads,(5mm?)and is it OK to oil them up with penetrating oil? What is the trick to loosen them, heat?
Answer Mark, Don't use heat, They'll expand and get even tighter. You could try penetrating or peppermint oil, but no guarantees. Most servicers usually drill the screws out, and order the repalcement screws, the screws have a tendency to snap off the head when you try to remove them, A number 1 or 2 phillips head screwdriver would be the tool to use, in either case. Thanks and Good Luck
How do you install the igniter?
Answer Hello Juan. You will need to remove the burner from the cooktop. Once removed, there is a screw on the bottom of the burner securing the igniter 316011200. Hope this helps.
