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!
Which igniter do I need for the stove top burners on a Whirlpool supercapacity 365?
Answer Duane, I've found model SF375PEEQ0. Please check your appliance model number as the model number given seems to be invalid. The left front igniter is part number 8053718, the left rear igniter is part number 8053717, the right front igniter is part number 8053720, and the right rear igniter is part number 8053719. Thanks!
My gas burner igniter will not stop igniting. It clicks continuously with all of the burner switches in the off position. The only way to stop the ignition clicking is to unplug the stove.
Is there a sending unit I can buy for replacement to fix this problem?
Answer John, The igniter itself, is not the issue. You will need to access the burner gas valves and check the ignition switches 74011647,74011648 for a "closed circuit, when the valves are in the off position, or a shorted switch. If the switches check proper, you'll need the spark module W10475147, these are the components that make the igniter spark.
WPL 8523793 to replace the surface igniter. How is this done? What are the instructions to replace them? I need this info. ASAP! Thanks
Answer Hi. Remove the top grates and the top burner caps. Set them aside in order to be able to replace them. Remove all burners and do the same. Use a putty knife to reach in from the top front sides and release the inner clips that hold the top down. Prop the top up with a wooden handle being careful not to damage the insulation underneath. Unscrew the burner base from the gas feed tubing. Unscrew the igniter from the bottom of the burner base and replace then igniter part # 74009336. Thank You.
