Where and how do I replace the Spark Module Kit for my Maytag CHG9800BAE?
The spark module 12001596 is located at the rear of the unit where the storage drawer is located. It may be necessary to remove the side panel but should be accessible by removing the storage drawer.
where is the spark module located? I have a magic chef stove model no. 3468xva. Please HELP.
Answer Robert, The spark module 12001596 on your range could be located on the back of the range, along the left side of the rear panel. On early versions the spark module was located on the inside of the right side panel, which will require removing the side panel.
Were is the spark module located on a drop in 4 burner gas whirlpool?
Answer Keith, the spark module is located under the glass cook top and burners and mounted to the bottom of the burner box. You will need to remove power to the cooktop, turn off the gas supply and lift the cook top out of the counter top opening. Label and remove the grates, burner caps, burner mounting screws and drip pans, and burner knobs, then lift the top off the burner box. You may also want to order new burner mounting screws 7101P286-60 3 for each burner, as they have a tendency to be rusty or seized to the burner and either strip or break in the removal procedure.
What is the easiest way to access range burner spark ignitor for replacement? Thanks
Answer Bob, Here's what we have " Spark Module NOTE: Requires removal of range from installation position. 1. Remove screws securing lower rear access panel. 2. Disconnect and label wire connections from the spark module. 3. Remove screws securing spark module to unit chassis.
4. Replace and reverse procedure to reassemble."
I am concerned about the answer to my last question. You used the word ignitor and how dangerous it is to cross-wire on a gas stove. I replaced the spark module and the instructions say "input" either terminal can be used for line or neutral and the "output" terminals can be wired in any order . I also replaced one switch burner, the last in line with only two wires. So what cross-wire problem are you referring to.
Answer Hello Pete,
I looked up the wiring configuration for your unit and this is not a consideration on this model. There have been models produced with what they referred to as a re-ignition module. These units would spark the burner that the flame had gone out on, so they are the ones that must be wired specifically to the burner ignitor in question. That is why some older models had different color wires for each surface burner. I apologize for any inconvenience and concern this may have caused you. The model you have can be wired in any configuration so you have nothing to worry about.
I tore apart the back of my crosley gas stove and replaced the oven ignighter. In the process of that I unplugged two wires from the spark module and I'm not sure where those two wires go. While the wires are plugged in, we have a continues spark on the top burners. What do I do?
Answer Kirk, There are 6 (six) terminals on the spark module. The four(4) smaller 1/8 in. terminals are for the igniter wires, one to each igniter. The two(2) larger 1/4 in. terminals are for the line(120 VAC) from the igniter switches and neutral (N) wire to the line cord. The smaller terminals have no specific terminal location location on the module(on this style ignition system) But the L and N need to be on the proper terminals on the module. If the igniters continue to spark after you re check the wiring, you'll need to access the igniter switches on the the burner valves and check to make sure the switches are all in the "open" position when the valves are in the "OFF" position. If the switches check OK, the wiring is OK and proper, then you'll need to replace the spark module.
When trying to light oven, broiler & self cleaning none of them will light until it finally clicks. What causes that click sound, I think I need to replace that part.
Answer Hello Cgaretto,
The spark module would be what allows the unit to click and ignite. You could also check your ignitor to ensure that the ignitor is drawing between 3.2 and 3.56 amps.
