MGC5430 NONE OF THE BURNERS SPARK

This is the fix to ALL burner ignitors dying at the same time. The spark module (parts select PS2003170 or Maytag Part No 12001596) has gone bad. Follow this link to see schematics and ordering information from www.partselect.com:

http://www.partselect.com/ModelFrames.aspx?ModelID=133177&ModelNum=MGC5430ADB&mfgModelNum=&ManufactureID=1&Selected=52668&Position=0&mfg=Maytag&Type=&Mark=0

I would suggest purchasing the bracket in case it mounts a little different than the original. Also, click on the part number for the module and when that link opens up, click on "There are 4 Do It Yourself...." to see experiences of other people who have done the repair.

If you want a cheaper price, check www.partstore.com with the Maytag part number.

SOURCE: None of the 4 burners

The burner may not light if the ignitor is damaged, soiled or wet. The spark is not coming because igniter is weak. the problem with your oven is a bad igniter.
Let me explain how it works:
The igniter is wired in series with the burner valve. When the thermostat calls for heat, line voltage is applied to the circuit. As the igniter begins to glow, the current increases. The current flow causes the valve to open when the igniter becomes bright red (almost white). Flat igniters operate from 3.2 to 3.6 amps. In your case the current is less then 3.2 amps and even it does glow it does not open the gas valve.
Replacing the igniter should solve the problem.

Jenn-Air JDG8430 Ignitor won't stop sparking after burner ignites


Test the ignitor first, if the ignitor does not spark should be the ignitor itself.

How do I replace spark ignitor on GE JGP963SEF1SS gas cooktop?


If none of your burners are igniting, you need a new Spark Module. If only 1 or 2 of your burners are not igniting, you may need a Spark Igniter. Click on the pictures below for a larger image.

The Spark Module is number 318 in the following diagram (underneath the burners):

The Spark Igniter is number 154 in the following diagram:

Igniter doesn't spark on only one burner


There are three parts to the ignition system typically.

The ignitor that is either in the burner or outside the burner.

The spark ignitor switch that is located on the burner control. (( one for each control ))

The spark modual. the modual creates the hi-voltage spark.

If the burner that does not ignight with its control does not spark but does spark with one of the other controls then the spark ignitor control switch is bad.
You can test it with one of the other burner control knobs. (( just try a working burnder and when it clicks look at the bad burners ignitor and look for the spark.))

If the bad burner that wont ignight does not spark then either your modual is bas or the ignitor is shorting out.

If you see any little spark but it does not spark from point A to Point B like the other burners then your ignitor is shorting and should be replaced.

If your ignitor is ceramic and it is cracked, then it should be replaced.
