After replacing all of the burner igniters, wiring and the electrode clips, one burner continues to arc a spark. Is there a special way to install the electrode clips which if too much play, is causing this sparking or did I do something else incorrectly?
Answer Hello Bill,
If you are referring to the surface ignitor sparking after the burner is lit, you will need to make sure ground is sufficient to the burner area. The ground, if lost, will cause the spark module to not be able to read the resistance of the flame. This is how the manufacturer solved the issue of the flame blowing out. The spark module is designed to spark as soon as the module doesn't see the circuit resistance with the flame. If the ground is present and sufficient to the burner area that is giving the issue, you either have a bad spark module WB13T10046 or, (less likely but possible), a bad start switch WB18T10339.
Does your part number APO2020568 include the red wire shown in the installation video?
The electrode WB13K18 does not come with the igniter wires and we would need to have the complete model number to be able to locate the wire needed.
Hi there, Just cleaned inside of my Ge cooktop and now wires are sparking by themselves.
Answer Hello Mark,
You probably got moisture in the start switches (AP3191247). I would try drying them out with a hair dryer. If this doesn't work, you may have to replace them to correct the issue.
I have a GE fridge model PSS25GMA side by side and the ice does not dispense but the water does. I checked and the auger spins if I spin it, no noise when the ice switch is pressed. Also, I have GE stove top model JGP336EVBB and the one pilot continues to arc when its not turned on. I unplugged it and use a manual lighter to light the stove.
On the Refrigerator you will want to check to see if the motor is getting power when you push on the dispenser lever. You will have to push on the light switch as well as the motor will not turn without doing this. If there is power going to the auger motor then the motor is bad and needs to be replaced.
On the range you will need to check the spark switch to make sure that it is not bad. You will want to access the valve and with the switch in the off position, check for continuity. If there is continuity then the switch is bad and would need to be replaced.
I need to replace the igniter on the front right burner (it no longer sparks). The burners are sealed in the glass top and I don't know how to access the clip that hold the igniter in place.
Answer Hello David,
To remove the ignitor you will remove the screws securing the burner bowls to the burner. Once removed then you will disconnect the electrode wire from electrode. Electrode should be able to be removed at this time. Make sure power supply to unit is turned off.
