Question about GE 30 in. Profile JGP989 Gas Cooktop
On a GE jpg989 four burner gas cooktop one igniter has failed. I can se it is not sparking on ignition. Have located the part but not sure if this is an easy or difficult job. How would the igniter be changed??
remove the burner caps, or heads and check all of the ports to be sure they are not clogged. Also be sure that when you put them back that they go into the correct positions.

Remove all the burner heads and lift the top. Sometimes easier said than done. How do you know it is the module? It could be a cracked insulator on the ignitor. To verify you can swap two of the connections on the module and if it lights then it is the module.

all burner igniters work at the same time - you may have a faulty electronic spark unit. change the spark unit. go to repair clinic dot come for the unit. also would be wise to check the ingniter start switch on the gas burner control knob

Testimonial: "Thank you so much I followed your instructions...I think the problem was in the knob as you said...Thanks again!1"
the very first thing i would do here is to check the ignitor itself
under the head cap you should see two screws, once those are out you will be able to lift the burner plate, lift the burner plate, you will see, or should see the ignitor, and the wire.
i check this for voltage by unplugging the ignitor and olding the wire close to a ground, the metal body is good. Turn on the ignitor, becareful it is live. yhou shgould see a spark comming from the wire
if not check to make sure that wire is in position and on the spark module
if you do see a spark this way, just order the replacement ignitor
and install it when it arrives
part number AP3191250

The igniter module is working fine. One of the switches (which are on each valve shaft) is stuck or shorted out. Pull a wire off each one at a time to determine which one is bad. Careful! 120 volts to each wire. Also, this can happen after you spill water into the valve area, if that sounds right, let it dry out.
