Gas ignitors do not shut off

The gas ignitors do not turn off on all burners. We have to unplug it to stop which leaves the top burners unsafe. What is causing this problem and how can we fix it?? Thanks for your help! Randy Osborne

Re: Gas ignitors do not shut off

Are you saying the spark module is constantly sparking? If so, you may have one of your surface burner switches shorted, causing the spark module to stay on. Or, you could have a ground in your wiring harness to the spark module. Here's a way to check: 1. Unplug range, or turn off circuit breaker. 2. Locate your spark module. It's usually located in the back of the oven cavity, or behind the rear panel. There should be a wire going from the spark module to each burner switch. Carefully disconnect each burner switch one at a time and re-energize your range to see if the problem goes away. If the problem doesn't go away, turn the range back off, reconnect the switch and move to the next switch wire. 3. If you disconnect each switch and the problem persists, then I would suspect an internal short in the spark module, or a ground in your wiring somewhere. There should be a tech sheet with diagrams located somewhere on the back of the range to assist you. I hope this helps.

I havef a KitchenAid Gas Range Model KGSS907... and one of the ignitors on one of the burners is not sparking. I tried to take the stove top off to check the wire to the ignitor but don't see how to...


Typically the burner come off by removing the burner caps and inside the burners are 2 screws that hold the burner base to the top..yes you could swap igniters on all burners they will be the same. If by swapping the igniters it still doesnt work the things that could be the problem are;

the spark module espically if the igniter that doesnt work on that burner suddendly work on a different burner

the spark switch on the gas valve for that burner..typically all burners spark when one it turned on but the only one that lights is one that has gas flow to turning on a different burner first and leave it set to light setting by turning on the one that doesnt light it will light if that spark switch is the problem

of course a cracked igniter

a broken wire from the spark module to that igniter taht doesnt work..its not that uncommon that the insulation will sometimes wear off a wire off so the electric that should be going from the spark module to the igniter is instead being grounded by that wire touching the metal on the frame uninsulated

Good luck,i hope i have been able to help you fix your range,

Dcs gas oven/range, ignitor won't go off after burner or burners are lit

They probably cleaned the stove and in replacing the parts of the burner switched the rings on top of the burner. This happened to me. While they look alike, the round rings, not the flat disks, have to be on the right burner in order for the electron spark to ignite the gas. Good luck.

Ignitor would not turn off on front left burner

Same problem with the ignitors on the burners myself.  But only when i turn on the left side burners do they continually spark.  Any one know what ignition module on this?  How does it prove flame?  To ground?  Might I have a bad ground causing it to not rectify the flame?
