Re: Broken Ignitor module

Patricia, if you're talking about the oven igniter and it's rectangular in shape (not round) the part number is WB2X9998 and lists for about $40.00. This is an igniter built by GE, but is universal to all brands using this style igniter and is available at any local appliance part retailer. But, if your talking about a "spark module"... I'll need the full model number to help you further. (B0613 didn't show up in my data) Hint---> before removing an oven igniter, apply a few drops of dish washing liquid to the threads of the fasteners. This will act as a lubricant and allow the fasteners to be removed without stripping or hassle and (after the job is done) won't smell bad when you use your oven again.

Surface ignitors dont work

The oven and burners have separate igniters. There may be a battery that needs to be replaced for the burner's igniter module.

Ingnitor glows bright yellow or red but oven doesn't light

Hello, welcome to FixYa.

Based on your description,I`d suggest it is the hot surface ignitor for the bake burner that is likely the problem...even though it glows, I'll explain further below.

Here's what you can try to verify if it's indeed the ignitor...if you're mechanically inclined. It'll look like this...


** FIRST unplug the range and turn off the gas to the appliance before attempting any first**

NOTE: Some ranges have an upper broiler the same as the lower (bake) ignitor ( some do some don't ) one could swap the ignitor`s ( very carefully, they are very fragile and don`t like to be handled ) this will allow you to use the bake burner, but it will leave you without the broil function...until you can purchase another.

Here's a helpful link...

This will confirm or dismiss if the ignitor is at fault...99% of the time this is the case. Many people overlook the ignitor, especially if it "glows" since that gives the untrained person the impression it works...that is not the case however. (Ignitor may glow but not have sufficient amperage to open valve, or open the valve slightly, even intermittently...but not hot enough to ignite the gas).

As far as checking them you don't actually need a clamp on (though it is the preferred method) you can also ohm it out to test it as follows...

You should be able to find one at most brick & mortar appliance parts vendors or on-line depot's such as "", "" to name a couple.

You can ask for part number based on the model number for the bake ignitor. The number I use in most applications (it's fairly universal and replaces both long and short ignitors and works in 90% of ranges out there)... is part #12400035.

I would still double check with your model number with the part`s professional`s if you're more comfortable with that.

Hope that help`s. Let me know if I can assist you further or if anything is not clear and good luck.

Thank`s for visiting "fixya" for your repair needs. Please take a moment to rate the assistance you received here and a brief testimony is also appreciated.

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,

Igniters not working


Either the single ignitors are faulty, or the ignitor sparker module must be replaced.
The sparkers are tested energizing them.
The ignitor hub module is located under the cooktop panel.
Check also the wiring harness to spark module.

Here all parts and diagrams for your range:Parts & Accessories.

Range top ignitor stopped working. electronic panel and oven work normally. Any idea what the problem is?

Hi, your spark module,for ignitor could be damage, sometimes they burnt out, or could be broken wires, or corrosion at electrical connection, (terminal) , normally it's spark module, that's faulty or burnt out. let mechanic check. or remove range plug from receptacle, and lift top of range, check all electrical wiring, check all connection for rust (corrosion) clean and retry range, if it didn't work, call mechanic to check spark module. good luck.

Oven won't light or self cleaning but broil works

sounds like the spark module to me. you need to find the model # for this one. if you have the electrical schematic, you can ohm out the spark module.

the model & serial #'s should be under the door frame, when you pull out the bottom drawer.
