All the burners are sparking all the time with no burners turned on.
Answer Mary, You may need the spark module 8215557, but with your particular complaint, you need to check the igniter switches W10180490 on the burner valves first. If one or more switch is stuck "closed" (on position) or a wire is shorted to chassis ground, the igniters will continue to spark.
The 110V broiler element does not work on my oven. I ordered a new element and replaced it and it still does not work. What else could be wrong?
Answer Bubba, You may have a broken or damaged blue or white wire to the element, or a faulty relay on the ERC / Clock 5760M305-60. If you have access to a multimeter, you can remove the element, attach the meter leads to the wire terminals, and select a broil setting, you should read 120VAC across the wires, if not you'll need to check the wires for damage and breaks. Then check the E/BR terminal on the back of the ERC for 120 VAC to chassis ground when broil is selected, no 120 VAC would indicate a faulty relay and you'll need to replace the ERC.
When the knobs are turned to the off position, the starter sparks start clicking continuously on all 4 burners. So I unpluged the power cord overnight and the clicking stopped for several days, and it seems to fix the problem on 3 burners but the same clicking happens again on one of the burners. What part do I need to replace. Thanks, Ly
Answer Hello Ly,
The first thing you should check for is a lost ground that could have been caused by a spill. You have to think "big picture" when doing this as many of the ground connections are where metal components of the unit are screwed together. The next thing to check is the start switch. The heat it is exposed to plus the possibility of spills getting into the start switch can cause a complete failure on a gas cooktop. The next thing I would suspect is the spark module.
The top 4 burners lite, the broiler lights, but when the stove is turned on, the igniter gets red hot but no gas is released or ignited. I tried to manually lite it but nothing. So what is the problem? The igniter, the gas valve? Please help, Thanks!
The ignitor 74007498 should turn almost white hot. It can be tested with a clamp on amp meter. It should read from 3.2 to 3.6 amps. If this reading is low, the gas valve will never open and the flame cannot occur. If the proper current is present, the gas valve 74006427 is the problem.
