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.
I thought that I had a bad spark module so I purchased one from you, I installed it and now all the burners are sparking all the time with no burners turned on.Could I have a bad switch that is causing the trouble?
Answer Hello Leo,
Check to make sure that your switches are on the gas valves properly and that there are no pinched wires. Also ohm out switches to make sure that they are good. If this checks ok then you may need to replace the switches or you may have received a bad spark module.
I am using this module in a different application .Is there a ground connection to this model ? What is the wiring for the output high voltage? Thank You ,MrO
Answer Mr.O, There is no ground circuit in the module. The burner electrode, is in essence the ground. thats how the spark is achieved to ignite the gas.When the voltage at the end of the electrode seeks to complete the circuit the burner cap and base act as the ground, and a spark occurs. The high voltage outputs on the module are the four 3/16 inch terminals across the top of the module. All four produce the same voltage at the same time, when power is applied to the module. Good Luck
