My stove-top burners work and the broiler will work. However, the oven will not start. Is this ignitor the part I need to replace?
Answer Hello Will. Check the igniter and see if it is coming on. If it is not, test the wires to it, and make sure you have voltage there. If there is voltage present, replace the igniter. Hope this helps.

The igniter sends spark to all four gas burners continuously. Even when it is not supposed to. Is there a part I can replace?
Answer Hello John. You either have a bad spark module 3186576, or a bad switch 814404. We will need the full model number to help you with this. Hope this helps.

I set the temp for 350 deg, when it gets there, the burner will not come on again to hold the temp. If I have a defective igniter, what is the part # for a new one? This is a Hardwick gas range M#cpf9843k a659a.
Answer Joe, It does sound like you probably have a weak oven igniter. You could check to see that the igniter draws 3.2 to 3.6 amps, when glowing with a "clamp on" ammeter. The correct part number for the igniter is 7432P036-60 based on the model number you supplied. The 12400035 will also work in your range, it is a "universal" igniter and can be modified as needed to fit and work in most ranges.
The igniter sparks, but wont ignite the flame.
Answer Ken, Make sure all the venturi openings around the top of the burner are clean, remove the burner(twist it 90 degrees counterclockwise, and lift it out of the cook top) and check the orifice to see if it's clogged with grease or debris. Is the ignition spark a bright blue or white in color and does it spark in one spot consistently or is the spark erratic and striking in various locations. Can the burner be lit with a match, and does it appear and adjust ( high, medium ,low) properly.
I just change igniter on my kenmore wall oven but the oven would not work.
Answer Hello Corey. Test for 3.2-3.6 volts AC at the gas safety valve with the igniter turned on. If the voltage is there, you have a bad safety valve. If the voltage is low, you have a weak igniter and the igniter will need to be replaced. You can test this with a multi-meter TJMA-DMT3. Here is a link on how to use a multi-meter. http://forum.appliancepartspros.com/oven-repair-including-ranges-cooktops/4810-how-check-continuity-ohmmeter.html
