Question about Cooktops
Tried to replace electric ignitor, but can't get spark to the 4 burners?? I can see spark to the ignitor, but not any further? Is there a specific way to install the elctric ignitor?? Shouldn't be that hard... should it??
It may be that the electricity or the spark is connection to different point of the grill, the electricity will spark to the closest point of conductivity.
if you check and each ignitor is sparking , strongly ( so no problem with spark modual), then there may be points in the wireing whichis exposed or more likely where the wireing and the ignitore connects,
you can tape it with electrical tape, then it should see the spark to the burner. if it is sparking, and not to the burner, just means it is sparking to a different point, where the jump is shortest.

check that the particular burner is properly "grounded" see that no "dirt" is between burner and frame. Also ensure that the insulation on the wire from the igniter unit to the probe at the burner is not damaged.

There are a series of holes in the burner leading down from the main flame area to the pilot tube, ensure the holes are not plugged/restricted.

Make sure yo haven't spilled liquid on the ignitor becuase this will cuase all ignitors to spark constantly. If all is dry, the spark module must be replaced.
