Jenn-Air - CVG4380W - intermittent sparking

First indication of problem was a tripped GFI outlet on the circuit that powers the stove top. I reset the outlet and I heard the stove fan on with a constant spark. All the burner valves were fully closed. I unplugged the power cord, plugged it back in and the fan stopped but it still sparks (at all 3 locations) every 8 to 10 seconds (much slower than if I turn a burner value to ignite. I suspect the spark relay (I disconnected the yellow wire on top of the relay and it stopped sparking). Any thoughts?

No power to wall unit


Have you tried plugging anything else in?

Also does the cord have a GFI breaker on it, or is the outlet a GFI outlet, if those are tripped it will keep power from going to the unit. If they tripped more then likely they got wet, or there is a short circuit.

Otherwise if all that is good circuit breaker would be next to check.

Reset button ac unit


Hello jerrydj1021 - Often when the breaker trips, it is a mainly because there is too much current running on one circuit. Is the unit plug into a GFI outlet? It is not recommended to use GFI outlets or too many appliances plugged into that one circuit. Try plugging the unit into another direct outlet and see if the breaker trips again. I ask that you please follow up with a comment on the post, at your convenience, to advise if further troubleshooting is needed or if the unit's status has changed successfully. Thank you.

Frig is intermittently tripping GFI outlet.


To be short, the only thing in the machine that really has the capability of causing that is the compressor. Its got a floating short in and when it makes contact it trips the outlet/breaker. Check for any exposed wires just to be sure but I'm pretty certain that the compressor is the culprit and either it or the machine needs to be replaced.

Home fuse box breaker issue


Hi Rex,

It sounds as if the upstairs bathroom outlet and the outdoor outlet are on the same circuit. There's a very good chance that these are GFI or "ground fault interrupter" type outlets, as these locations (and others) have required this type of protection for over 30 years. It was a common practice to run a circuit from the panel to one of these locations (or another) and then run from here to the next outlet and then on to the next. Since the GFI outlet could be purchased for around $10 instead of $30 for a GFI breaker, electricians would install outlets instead - both offered the same protection. A "regular" breaker would supply power to this circuit - but the very first outlet would get a GFI type outlet. It would be wired to the LINE terminals and the cable that feeds the rest of the outlets on this circuit would be connected to the LOAD terminals. If there was a ground fault condition, this GFI outlet would trip, but the circuit breaker would remain on. You would locate and RESET the tripped GFI outlet to restore power. The only time the circuit breaker would trip is if the circuit was overloaded. Overloads would NOT cause the GFI outlet to trip.

Now that you understand how it was typically wired years ago (and still a lot of times today), you should check all the outlets outside your home, in bathrooms, basements, garages, and inside your home next to doorways that lead directly to grade of your lawn or deck. These are required places for GFI protection. Press the RESET on any tripped GFI outlet to restore power. If the outlet will not RESET, there is a condition where the hot wire (black, red or blue insulated wire) is in contact with ground, or a device or appliance connected to the circuit has a problem. Unplug anything connected to the circuit and attempt to RESET again. If still unable to reset, open the outdoor outlet again and carefully pull it out and away from the box. Inspected for damaged or crushed insulation and repair / tape as needed. Before reinstalling, try to reset again. If it holds, trip the GFI by pressing TEST button. The RESET button should pop out. Reinstall the outlet and make sure the wires are not crushed or cut. Press the RESET button again. If it trips, you will have to remove the outlet again and take more precautions against damage to the insulation. it is also possible that the GFI outlet itself has failed, in which case it should be replaced.

GFI circuit breakers and outlets are supposed to be tested monthly by simply pressing the TEST button and then the RESET button. Replace any GFI device that does not test correctly if wiring and devices / appliances connected are OK.

I hope this helps & good luck! Please rate my reply - thanks.

Purchase new 32'' tv 2-day ago, will not work in a GFI plug outlet trips GFI each time you reset, is there something wrong with unit? works fine in a non GFI outlet


Good News!!! GFI outlets are made to trip when a large amount of power is pulled through them. A GFI is basically a small circuit breaker.Your television set is probably just pulling more amperage than the GFI is rated to handle. That means the GFI is working properly And so is the TV!

you, or your electrician has pulled power from one of the gfi outlets to power the electric sparker on the stovetop. If you can figure out which gfi that the power was pulled from, open up the box and find the wire that runs to the stove and remove it from the gfi outlet and connect it to the power before it goes to the gfi.

GFI on cord trips out.


Probable cause is a single pole gfi opposed to a double pole gfi.
* Do not use a single pole GFCI ON A MULTI WIRE CIRCUIT, IT WILL NUISANCE TRIP IMMEDIATELY
Use a two pole GFCI circuit breaker on such circuits.
