Will ignitor AP3175721 replace the one that is part of burner orifice holder 31644102 in my Kenmore Elite gas range model 79031069100?
Answer Hello Jesse! Unfortunately, the burner igniter is not available separate from the igniter/orifice tube assemblies listed for your model. For the left rear assy use part number 318924705, left center assy use part number 318924706, left front assy use part number 318924704, center assy use part number 316540700, right front assy use part number 316540700, and right rear assy use part number 316540800. Thanks!
Does Surface Burner Spark Electrode Part Number AP3175721 come with the wire? If not how would I order that?
Answer Hello James,
You would need to put the units' model number from the I.D. tag into our site and look up the part number by the model number. This is the only way to get the correct part for your unit. I'm sorry but without the units' model number, there is no way to look up the correct part number. Thank you for your patience and understanding in this matter.
All ignitors fire, but right front spark seems to come from about halfway down the insulator and arcs to the cooktop. Way too low to ignite the gas.
Answer Cold Supper, If you look closely you'll probably find that the insulator is cracked or chipped and allowing the arc to jump to the cooktop. It'll need to be replaced. Basically, remove power to the range, and turn off the gas supply at the wall. Remove everything from the cooktop surface grates, caps, and burner bases(2 screws each) and carefully raise the cooktop. Carefully disconnect the burner base from the gas supply tube, flip the base over and change the ignitor. Be careful, you don't want to crack or kink the gas supply tube and the brass fittings are very soft and easily cross threaded and leak. Make sure you check for a gas leak before you reconstruct the range.
