I had this intermittent spark problem with the burners on my Amana stove ARGS7659WW and ended up having to replace my spark modulator.

I tested my connections and found I needed to replace my spark modulator. For my Amana stove ARGS7659WW the cheapest modulator I found was ~$80! So, after finding out that Maytag builds Amana I rolled the dice and found that the Maytag Spark Module Kit 12001596 ($21 new on ebay) works great!

Arcing or sparking. Need new piece (has grease on cardboard(?)cover.)

Hope this helps

We own an Amana HDC18 commercial microwave. Lately, it has begun sparking intermittently between the door and the floor. There looks to be a thin spot in the coating on the floor right at the bend on the...

The gasket holding the ceramic floor plate may be damaged. If so, it will need to be replaced, or clean the area thoroughly and apply caulk.

If the cavity metal of the oven is chipped or charred, it will have to be sanded smooth and clean and dried thoroughly.

Then you can apply some high-temperature appliance paint, available from places like Wal-Mart, Lowe's or Builder's Square.

You can find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number from the tag on the oven here.

This is a problem with a faulty HV capacitor or rectifier diode in the cap. You can check the connections, but please OBSERVE HIGH VOLTAGE PRECUATIONS. with lid off.
