My Amana Gas Stove Top is not sparking on all 4 burners. I have to use a match or lighter for ignition. What is the part needed?
Answer Hello Gilbert,
This is normally caused by a loss of the electrical ground to the surface burner. This is normally corrected by disassembly of the top area and sanding the places where the screws that hold the parts in place go through so they will make electrically to the chassis of the appliance. If you want to verify this is th4e issue before disassembly you can run a ground wire from a clean and shiny body screw near the lower part of the appliance to the burner area of the unit. If this does not cause the ignitor to properly spark, you could have an issue with the spark module 32020101 or wiring to the ignitor.
Replaced igniter but other front burner stopped sparking also. Neither spark. I am assuming it is the spark module?
Since one igniter was replaced but the burner does not work and the second burner has also stopped sparking then the spark module would be the issue.
Front left igniter doesn't spark, the other 3 burners do.
You will want to test the resistance of the spark igniter for continuity and test igniter to chassis. There should be continuity when checking resistance and no continuity to ground. If there is continuity to ground then the igniter would need to be replaced.
All 4 burners stopped sparking at the same time. Do I need a spark module? Is the number AP4041505? How do I access that, does the top pop up?
Answer Hello Bob,
This is how it is designed. All of these will spark all surface burners when one is turned on. Now if it is sparking the burners without turning a surface gas valve on, the issue is either a bad ground or the spark module.
The answer to your second question is, "I don"t know". It is impossible to give an accurate part number without the model number to look it up by.
The answer to your third question is yes. The top on most models have to be accessed from the top. To give more complete instructions, again I would require the model number so I can see which configuration you have.
Need to replace the spark module. Can I do this myself?
Answer Hello Chuck. Sure, you can replace the module 32020101. You will need to raise the cooktop to access the module. Make sure the power is disconnected and the gas is turned off before servicing the unit.
