Have a thermador psc364gdzs the spark does not work for the gridle


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

Sparking Devizes keeps on going


Hi,
Although you provided no information as to the make or model of your unit the premise is the same.
Check you voltage at the wall for polarity, if reversed this will happen. If not has this unit been serviced before, if so is it possible it was miss wired? Now to the cooktop, either you have a sticking burner switch causing this or no flame to cut resistance from the electrode (depending on model of course). Not every cooktop works the same. With this being said, give me some more information and I will be glad to assist you.

Thanks for your time.

Cooktop burner do not ihnite


Hi hgodoy2 - Is the electronic igniter aligned properly? Ensure that tip of spark igniter is aligned with metal point or "nib" located on underside of burner cap after the burner mounting screws have been tightened. (Not all burners having mounting screws). When the burner control knob is set to the "LITE" position do the igniters spark? Can gas be heard or smelled coming from the burners when the control number is turned on? However, if you smell gas, I highly recommend turning the unit and the gas off if you can reach it and contact your gas provider. The range itself does not have a switch or regulator to relight it. Keep in mind that it may be experiencing an issue with the spark module, electrodes, wiring or EOC.

One of burners can not ignite only having clicking sound.


First you need to brush out the end tip of the sparking electrode and the burner metal part facing the electrode so they can create a spark. If not any result the you should remove electrode and check if the ceramic cover is broken and the sparking goes in wrong way and you will need to replace it.

Igniter works, but the clicking doesn't stop


Hello,

The electrode (spark plug) for that burner is not telling the spark module the burner is lit and go ahead and turn off the spark. That electrode and the wiring on it need to be replaced,from that burner back to the spark module. I found this place online that sells that part http://www.expertappliance.com/partfinder-gas-stove-elite.php

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.

Romvoing the top of my Whirlpool Cooktop


first thing is the spark module(ignitor-- your referring to) is probably good and your electrodes are damaged. more then likely the problem. when you turn on one burner they should all spark( 1 module controls all 5 electrodes) so lets check that, first. when you turn on any/all burners do you at least hear clicking??. theres a switch under each **** that turns on the spark(erhaps one of them is bad. think of the electrodes as spark plugs on a car, they spark the same way, ck to see that they are clean(free from rust and carbon build up).using emory cloth or a woman's finger nail file try "sanding" down to a shiny surface the very tip of the electrode protruding out of the burner head.look for cracks in the porcelin housing around the electrodes this will lead to miss fires of the electrodes
