We have some burners that no longer ignite. I think the part I would need is the Top Burner Igniter PN AP4283295. Is that the likely part. Some burners still work.
Any possibility of having a PDF copy of the repair manual being sent so that I can determine if there are other parts that should be replaced if this does not solve the issue?
Oh, and thanks for your help on my other home appliances and repair manuals. The exploded views onsite are helpful, but the manual works best. I've been able to fix the washing machine, dishwasher, oven, etc by getting parts and advice from appliancepartspros.com
Answer Douglas, The burner igniters Y0316773 is a good guess, they can get corroded and damaged from spillage and boil overs, But can usually be cleaned and operate properly. A better guess would be a faulty spark module 31962701, or faulty igniter switch Y0316705 or wire.
The oven will not put heat when it needs to .Shows temperature of 105 F. I have to turn it on and off about 10 times before starts working .What should I do to fix it?
You will want to check to see if the igniter is working. To do this you will test for 3.2-3.6 volts AC at the gas safety valve with the igniter turned on. If the voltage is there, you have a bad safety valve. If the voltage is low, you have a weak igniter and the igniter will need to be replaced. You can test this with a multi-meter TJMA-DMT3. Here is a link on how to use a multi-meter. http://forum.appliancepartspros.com/oven-repair-including-ranges-cooktops/4810-how-check-continuity-ohmmeter.html
The front left burner doesn't work any longer. I still hear the "clicking" trying to ignite it, but no spark, no flame. All other 3 burners are working fine. Any ideas? Thanks!
Answer Hello Terry,
You will want to make sure that the ignitor is not cracked or broken. If it is then it will need to be replaced. Check to make sure that the ignitor is set properly in the burner as to be able to arch and spark. A lot of times when cleaning unit the ignitor can become out of position due to the rag catching it cause it to move.
All burners ignite quickly except the right front which does spark but does not light the gas. Cap and other parts are clean and properly installed. Do I only need to replace the igniter for the one burner now working properly?
Answer Hello Cooki,
If the ignitor spark is blue or almost white, there is no need to replace it. The burner will be the issue. If the spark is orange or red, as long as you have cleaned the area and checked for proper grounds, the ignitor will need replacement. Remember the gas has to get out at the ignitor for the spark to ignite it, therefore, the burner may be your issue.
