Question about Kitchen Ranges
Magic Chef model 34MN-3TKVW-EV (@15 yrs old). I replaced all 4 burners, (removal and replacement was easy thanks to advice from this board). After replacing all burners, only the front 2 burner's ignitors spark. The back 2 do not. All four burners are feed by 4 independent wires (orange) and there are no other wires going to the burners. Here's the wierd part, when the one wire to one of the back burners touched metal, i got spark at the other back burner. So obviously there is a grounding problem. Does the body of the burner create the ground required for the ignitor to spark? I am not quite sure how to address the grounding issue. The burners work, I can use a candle lighter to light them, but it's not right. Just drives me a little crazy. Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thank you in advance.
Look at the front ignitors that work and look at how they ground. Then, set the back ones up the same way. Make sure the 'arc gap' is the same too.
