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 71002783, 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.
