How to replace spark module for whirlpool gas top cooking range?
Answer Hello Anil. Look on the back of the unit and see if you can locate the module on the unit. If not, then it sounds like the module is under the cooktop and you will need to raise the top to access and replace the module. You will have to disconnect the power and remove the burner caps. Then remove the screws securing the burners to the top panel. Next lift the top and replace the module on the unit.
To replace the spart module, do I open the top or the button?
Answer Hello Ting. 1. Turn off the gas supply and electrical
power to the cooktop.
2. Remove the maintop from the mounting
box. 3. To remove the spark module, disconnect
the wires from the terminals and
remove the mountng screw(s). NOTE: Both
types of spark module W10110491 are shown in the
illustration. Use which ever one matches
the cooktop you are servicing.
How do I put this back together? It does not seem to fit our. I'm simply not smart enough to do this!
Answer Hi What is your model # ? There is a wiring diagram supplied after you remove the storage drawer or behind the control panel. The new spark module part # W10110491 has markings to let you know which of the 3-grouped together terminals are +, --, and ground which is the green wire terminal. It is denoted by an upside down t with 2- progressively smaller lines. Then you use the other terminals that feed the burner igniter it self. You need to remove one wire at a time to insert them in the same terminal. Thank You.

How do you replace the spark module?
Answer HI Bec. We need your exact model # to assist you. If it is a cook top , then it will be on the bottom of the unit at the sides. If it is a range it will be on the frame behind the storage drawer or the kick plate assembly. I hope this helps. Thank you.
My original spark module has only two pins on the top, for the power connection, the new on has three connections. I read, in the Q/A, an answer that you gave to another person that identifies the power wires white wire goes to the Minus and the brown wire goes to the plus. My wires are white to negative and Orange, or maybe pink, can't tell which, to the positive. I think this would be OK but, my other wires are white with color tags on them. They differ from the colors you told the guy to hook up. The tags on the white wires are Red, Yellow, Orange & Blue. Can you tell me how to hook mine up to this new module?
Answer Hello Vernon. They do not show the wire colors on your model number. Here is what you can do. Hold the new module up to the old one. Hook the white to the negative, and the orange to the positive. Then the wires under them on the old module will go into the same place on the new module. Hope this helps.
