Can you please let me know how to replace.
To remove the ignitor, Unplug or disconnect power to range. Turn off gas supply. Pull the range out of its mounting location so that you can access the rear of unit. Remove the burner grates the vent cover and the burner caps from the top of range. Remove the screws from each of the standard burner heads and lift the heads off the cooktop. Remove the four burner ring torx screws from the triple teier burner and lift off the cooktop. Remove the three triple tier burner base cover torx scres and remove the Cover. Remove the screws fron the left right and rear trim pieces and remove the trim from around cooktop. Lift the rear of the cooktop off the unit and set aside. Disconnect the ignitor wire from the terminal. Remove the gas line. Remove the two bracket screws from the burner box. Remove the two hex head bracket screws and remove the burner from the bracket. Remove the screw from ignitor and remove ignitor.
When the burners, all four, are turned on the the gas runs fine but nothing lights. I have no idea what happened as I had tenants. Do I need 4 ignitors or the spark module? And if I do have to replace all 4 ignitors would it not be easier if I take the top off? The oven works great.
Answer Hello Laura,
You would want to check to see if the spark module has failed. To check this you would attach meter lead to L wire terminal on spark module and attach other meter lead to N or white. Reconnect power to unit and turn all knobs on light position. If there is no voltage (120vac) at test meter indicates the electrical circuit is interrupted before spark module. If there is voltage then check ignitors by attaching one meter lead to a good ground and the other meter lead to an ignitor terminal. A continuity reading indicates that there is a short to ground and ignitor needs replaced. If no continuity then touch other grounded meter lead to the opposite end of ignitor lead which is attached to top burner mounting bracket. No continuity indicates open circuit in ignitor 3185804 lead wire and need to replace ignitor. If ignitors are ok then replace spark moduleY705823.
