Serial # .10617006JL, stainless cooktop, 5 burner. I am having trouble with my front right burner not lighting correctly. It is sparking and if I blow on it sometimes it will light right up. Could you suggest the part that needs to be replaced? Also, sometimes other burners start clicking like it is trying to ignite when the burners are already lit. What is this cause? This has really been happening since it was installed!
Answer Hello Ken,
First off, all surface burners are designed to spark when any of the surface burners spark. That said, the spark module actually senses the resistance of the flame and if it thinks the flame has gone out, all surface burners should spark as per the design. Most of the time clearing the orifice with a stripped down bread tie and making certain a good ground is supplied to the burner area will take care of this issue. If ground is measured to be about the reading shown when the meter leads are touched directly together, the issue can be a failing ignitor 74009336 or ignitor wire. Worst case scenario would be a defective spark module 8286828.
I have a Jenn air cook top..all the burners light, but I have 1 that will continue to ignite after its been on for about 5 to 10 min..it will continue to click away until I turn it off. Its a JGC8430b. Thank you..
You will want to check the ignition switch on the burner valve for that burner. Turn the switch to the on position and see if there is continuity across the leads. If there is continuity then the issue will be with the burner switch. If there is not then the issue would be with the spark module.
I need to replace one of the ignitors on my stove, however I can't move the 2 screws, despite using penetrating oil and an impact hammer (one of the screws actually broke). What's the best way to remove the other screw (without breaking)? Do I need to drill out the broken screw and replace it also? THANKS, george717
Answer George, As you probably know, these "TORX" head screws 3368921 are subjected to high heat,spillage, moisture, etc. They can be very difficult to remove and replace after a few years of usage. It's best to have a few on hand. In cases like yours, it's best to carefully drill out the screw head, then remove the burner base, drip pan, etc. Then carefully extract the screw using a pair of pliers or small vice grips.
Time and time again I need to replace all ignitors on this stove top. Can I get the correct ignitor part numbers to all five burners? Your help is much appreciated! Michele
Answer Hello Michele, all ignitors for the top burners are the same. Order part# 74009336. The ignitor should not need replacing that often. It is possible you may have another issue causing this. If replacing the ignitor seems to fix the problem, make sure you're getting a good ground and good wiring connections when these are installed. Thanks!
