R front burner igniter won't activate. replaced switch for that burner still same problem. other 3 burners OK.


Hi Gary, Sounds like the electrode may be eroded so that the spark gap is a bit too big. Try CAREFULLY bending it ever so slightly towards the burner. I say carefully because the electrodes are ceramic sheathed, which you could crack. So you need to bend it above that point.

Do I have a bad spark modulator or a bad electrode?


Yes, it does sound like you have a bad spark module. But it could be a dirty spark electrode, allowing most of the voltage follow the "dirty path" to ground instead of going through the air. Make sure the electrode (the insulator) part is clean and dry. If you still have a weak spark (or one that goes out when the gas is turned on), they you probably have a bad spark module. If you want to know for sure, try swapping 2 spark wires. Remember that when 1 ignitor sparks, they all (are supposed to) spark.

Range: Gas burner won't spark or ignite A surface burner igniter switch and a spark module activate the spark electrode when a burner is turned to the "Lite" position on a gas range's cooktop. If the surface burner switch, spark module or wiring in that circuit fails, the spark electrode won't work, and as a result the gas burner won't light. If those components work but the electrode won't spark, the problem could be that the spark electrode is coated with spilled food of is bent or broken. In addition, the electrode won't spark or ignite the burner properly if the ceramic insulation sleeve below the tip of the electrode is cracked or broken. If the gas burner isn't lighting, these repairs may help.

Replace the spark igniter electrode

1396454293470.jpg The spark igniter electrode-also called the surface burner igniter-is an insulated electrode that provides an ignition spark to light a surface gas burner. It sparks and makes a ticking sound when the burner switch is turned to the Lite position. Replace the spark ignition electrode if it fails to spark or if the ceramic insulation sleeve is cracked or chipped. How to Replace a Spark Igniter Electrode in a Gas Range Find This Part

Replace the surface spark module

1377098014986.jpg The surface spark module is in the ignition circuit for the gas surface burners. When a surface burner control knob is turned to the "Lite" position, it provides voltage to the spark electrodes on the gas surface burners. If the surface spark module fails to provide the electrodes with voltage, then it should be replaced. Find This Part

Replace the spark igniter switch

1396454315355.jpg The igniter switch is an electrical switch on the stem of the gas surface burner control valve. This switch completes a circuit to the surface burner spark module, causing the burner igniters to spark when the burner switch is turned to the Lite position. Replace the burner igniter switch if the burners don't spark when you turn the burner control knob to the Lite position or if igniters spark constantly even when the burner knobs are in the Off position.

Trouble with front burners: Right burner sparks but does not light Left burner does not apper to spark, but lights If you turn on both bruners they some times light???


The igniters for the burners are all on one circuit so when you turn the burner to light the switch inside the burner valve will cause all burner igniters to come on. As far as the left burner not sparking it could be due to a bad igniter switch in the valve and when you turn on the right burner you are causing all(including the left one) to spark. You will need to make sure that the burner eyes are clear and not plugged. You can use a sewing needle to clear out the eyes. The small eyes at the igniter electrodes are very important because if they are clogged the burner will not light.

Ge profile gas range. one burner with no clicking and no ignition


You may have a bad burner switch. If you turn one of the other burner switches to make the spark modules spark look and see if the electrode is sparking at the bad burner. Most of the spark modules send a spark to all 4 burners when activated. If it sparks when another burner is activated open the valve and see if the burner will ignite. If so you probably have a bad burner switch.

Amana stove top burners click, and gas comes out, but won't ignite. It's a self cleaning ARG7200, about 11 or 12 years old. Oh, and can I lift this top? I'm used to doing that with old pilot-light...


A weak erratic spark from one or more electrode usually indicates a bad spark module. No spark from one of the electrodes while the others work properly usually indicates a bad electrode. Inspect the porcelain of the electrode for cracks, chips or burn marks. If there are any, the electrode should be replaced. If one of the burner knobs is turned to the light position and nothing happens, but all the others function correctly, the spark ignition switch for that one burner is likely bad. The switch can be taken out of the system and checked with an ohmmeter. It should close for continuity at the light position only.

One of the igniters does not click. they were wet and popped the breaker over a week ago . all but one now clicks and lites burners. it was sparking a weekago and blowing the breaker.


Make sure the area of the burner base around the spark electrode is clean (use a fine sand paper). The little hole for the gas is open (use a paper clip). You won’t see a flame unless the burner head is on. If this doesn’t help, check the bottom of the spark electrode visually. Make sure the wire is attached to the electrode and is not loose (pull it a little bit.) If the wire or the electrode is damaged, replace it ($25). If not, locate the spark module and switch the connection with another one (they are different colors). If you get flame on the same burner, but not on the other one, replace the spark module ($60). When you work with electrical components, turn the breaker off. When you test, turn it on. Good luck.

Jenn Air Gas cooktop burner ignition


Hi JHMcdona

Most likely the electrode for the right burner is defective. As well as the switch may also be defective (is shorted because of pressing hard on it trying to make it work!!). Change the electrode and igniter switch of the right front burner.

Sealed Burner


Ralph, you need to look at the electrodes at the burners. They might be cracked or dirty. It's very hard to tell sometimes when they are cracked. The burner cap itself has to have a good ground and the wires going to the electrode should be on tight. You can eliminate the spark module by switching the right and left side burner wires at the module. Once you do that, if the right side works ok, but now the left doesn't, you can be pretty sure it's the module...Catriver..post back.
