2 of the 4 burners do not ignite. They are also the higher BTU burners, right front and left rear. I manually light them to use them. Then, if I shut them off, and then turn the controls on again, sparks from the ignitors come on and then the burners work. If the ignitors were faulty, then why do they work after I turn them on again? What is the remedy? Will replacing the ignitors be the solution? I've had this problem for many years. Thanks.
Answer Hoover, Replacing the igniters is probably not going to solve your issue. You do need to make sure the burners and the surrounding area(s) are very clean and free of debris. Since this has been an ongoing issue, you also need to check and make sure the power cord is plugged into a 120 VAC polarized and grounded outlet. You'll also need to raise the top and check the igniter wires for shorts to chassis ground and loose connections back to and at the spark module 12001596 if all's proper and OK, replace the module
one of my 4 burners is not igniting. i believe its the ignitor because i have caught it on a rag while cleaning multipule times. How do i replace the ignitor? would i be better off by just replacing the burner cartridge and be done with it?
Answer Dan, It's not that hard a project. Once you remove the cartridge from the cook top, flip it over so you can remove the phillips heads screws from the lower outer casing You'll have access to everything inside the cartridge, includind the wiring and the igniter. It's probably worth the 10 or 15 minutes it would take to dismantle and check everything.
2 of the top burner ignitors stopped working. The other 2 spark all over the place. They do not make a clean spark down. is there a test I can do with a meter to see if it is the igniters or the igniter module?
Answer Jason, First check and make sure the burner caps and igniters are not dirty or chipped, and the porcelain insulators are not cracked or damaged,and make sure the range is properly grounded(120 VAC, Polarized,grounded outlet) Testing the ignition system is a process of elimination, check the valve switches for a closed circuit, when in the ignition position and an open circuit in the off position. Check each of the wires from the switches to the module and from the module to the burners. If all checks OK, then replace the spark module 12001596. Thanks and Good Luck
How do I change the ignitor for a Jenn-Air Dual Fuel range Model JDS9860AAP? In detail please.
Answer Hello jquintana24. You will need to twist and remove the burner 3403M075-10 from the cooktop and unplug the wire going to the igniter. Then flip over the burner and replace the igniter on the unit. Hope this helps.
Is there an easy way to disconect the wires from the underside of the burner and ignitor on Maytag gas ranges. The wires on my range are very tight, and I'm concerned that pulling the connector too hard may break something.
Answer Mark, Unless theres been some kind of repair or change to the wiring, all you need is 3/4 to 1 inch clearance, to unplug the wires on the terminal of the igniter. Heres some help " Unplug the power cord or turn power off to the range. Grasp the top of the sealed burner and turn the burner 90 dgrs. in a counterclockwise direction. Lift the burner up and out of the opening in the cooktop, disconnect and label the wires, and remove the burner". Remove the two(2) mounting screws holding the igniter to the base of the burner, and remove. Be careful installing the new igniter, you don't want to crack, chip, or break the porcelain insulators. Thanks and Good Luck
How to replace new ignitors (How to take old parts from stove range ) please give me in detail. thank you muresh
Answer Muresh, First you'll need to remove power to the range or unplug the power cord. Remove the burner grates, drip pans etc. from the cooktop. Grasp and turn the burner 1/4 turn counterclockwise, slowly lift the burner up and out of the cooktop opening enough to disconnect the wiring from the igniter assembly. Turn the burner upside down and remove the screw securing the igniter terminakl base to the bottom of the burner assembly. Reverse the procedure and test for operation. You may want to work each burner individually, or mark or label each burner and wire, so you don't cross wire or misplace the burner orientation. Thanks and Good Luck
Hello, I have a Maytag 61S14WAW gas range. The stove top works and lights just fine, but the oven will not heat up at all. I turn the knob, and nothing happens. I don't smell gas in the oven when the knob is turned on. Any ideas what part I should replace?
One other symptom we've had in the past is this: When the oven knob is turned all the way to high heat BROIL, it works fine but cannot be shut off. I've had to close the gas inlet ball valve to stop the flow of gas, turn off the oven, and then it can shut off. I'm not sure if this is related but thought it would be helpful to share.
Please help, thanks!
Answer Greg, You'll need to remove the oven bottom panel,and the metal flame spreader on the top of the burner tube, to test and observe the glow bar igniter12400035 for a "white hot" glow, and 120 VAC at the cabinet wiring harness for the igniter. You most likely have a weak or cracked igniter, but if you don't have the voltage on the wires, you'll need to check the wiring back up to the thermostat and check the thermostat switch for a closed circuit. 7404P087-60 Thanks, and good Luck.
Ok, Replaced the spark module, still no luck!!!
Answer Hello AI. Check and make sure there are no broken wires. If not, the switch 74009874 may be bad. Hope this helps.
