Hello, I need to replace a broken burner igniter on a whirlpool SF367LEKB2 gas range. How do I get the top off? I read some of the other questions but I cant find any latches to release to be able to remove the top. How do I remove the top?
To replace the ignitors on unit you will first turn off gas and electric to unit. Remove the grates and burner caps from top. Remove the burner base off the top, they may be held in by screws. remove the mounting screws from each of the four burners. Lift the front of the cooktop and unsnap it from the 2 clips that are located on the side about 2 inches back between main top and side panels. and prop cooktop up.
Front left burner does not burn. Ignitor makes ticking noise, but fire seems to go away from the burner. Tried to clean the burner, worked for few times,but, problem came back. What seems to be the problem. Other three are working fine. How to open the ignitor? Thanks in advance.
Answer Hi. Remove the burner grates. Remove the inner burner mount screws and lay them aside specifically in order with the burner. Use a putty knife to reach into the front sides and release the lt. and rt. clips holding the top down. Use the prop rod to hold the top up that is under the top assy. Release the igniter wire center holding tab and remove the wire from the igniter part # 8523793. Remove the inner burner -igniter mount screw and replace the igniter. After cleaning the burner, make sure all the horizontal holes are cleared with a straight pin. So the drafts will not blow out a weak flame. Make sure the burner caps are all cleaned back off with a small, soft brass wire brush where the igniter spark point is on the bottom side of the cap. The burner is part # 4455981. Make sure the orifice is clear. If they are then replace the burner valve part # 9757218. Thank You.
Please send detail instructions. Thank you

Front two burners do not spark the other three do.
Answer Hello Ed. Make sure the spark switches are good on the unit. If so, it sounds like the spark module 74009098 is bad and will need to be replaced in the unit.
One stove top ignitor not working. If I turn another one on, all the ignitors work and I can turn the bad one on and it will lite. But if I just turn the one burner on, gas comes through but it does not ignite. What do I need to fix and how do I get to that burner since it does not come out???
Answer Mike, You'll need to remove the cooktop and check for a damaged igniter switch [AP4008846and wiring to the switch. Check to make,sure there are no loose connections on the wires to the igniters. Then you'll need to move the range out of the cabinet and check the spark module 8215557 and wiring, located on the back of the range. We'll be sending you some additional information. Thanks
I have one burner that will not ignite.The gas flows, but there is no clicking or ignition. Is my problem the electrode or the spark module?
Answer Hello Thomas,
The problem sounds like the start switch 74007696 on the gas valve. The only way I could change my mind is if the other ignitors spark when that valve is turned on. Then I would have to say it's the ignitor 8523793 or wiring to it.
When lighting burners they don't alway come on - I always hear the clicking but the spark at the burner I am trying to light is not strong. This problem seems to move around randomly from burner to burner. Should the ignitor spark normally with the burner cap off?
Answer Alan, Make sure the burner base, ignotor and burner caps are clean(no debris, rust, corrosion, etc) the caps are installed on the burner bases properly. Check and make sure the power cord is plugged into a 120 VAC polarized, grounded outlet. Replace the spark module 74009098, not the ignitors. Thanks and Good Luck
