Question about KitchenAid 31 in. KGCS105 Gas Cooktop

1 Answer

RE my KitchenAid Gas 4 burner stove top Model kgct365x All of the sudden all four four burners stopped sparking. I'm guessing this is the spark module, Harper-Wyman 6540 (120VAC, 60 Hz, 8mA) Any other thoughts? The closest replacement I can find is Part# 6540S0001. Will that work? Thanks

SOURCE: electronic igniter stopped working

Sounds like the spark module has gone bad. Need to make sure you have voltage to the cooktop first.

SOURCE: burner caps

Call a local independent whirlpool dealer. they can order the parts from a supplier, and most do not charge sipping as sears a.k.a. A&E will. And they will usually be less expensive too.

SOURCE: One burner igniter fails to spark after getting wet

Each burner has its own switch to direct current to the igniter. It appears that one of the four switches burned or shorted out, while the other three survived the flood. These switches are replaceable, so that's how I'll fix the problem.

SOURCE: I have model # KGCT365X KitchenAid gas cooktop and

All four of mine did this.I glued it with a good quality super glue (don't get any inside or it won't fit back on)
Then I wrapped it many, many times with fishing string.Glue the end of the string after you cut it.Make sure that it holds.Then using alot of the super glue,spread/smear it all over the string.Its almost like fiberglass.Let it dry up real good over night.The first one I did almost 6 years ago and still holding.It's a lot guicker and easier then it sounds.

Thermador Gas Range - Griddle ignition will not spark


I have a Thermador Gas Range PG364GDBS - Oven, 4 burners, and center griddle. All are gas. The four burners and gas oven work fine. The griddle just stopped working, no spark. Turning on the griddle control, the gas valve opens(hear it), gas flows (smell it), but the ignitor will not spark (no loud or faint spark that I can hear). I got a replacement ignition device (mount at the burner) thinking it might be the problem, but still no spark. I checked the AC voltage at the terminal and measured 39 VAC between the terminal and ground. Not sure if that is the correct voltage. Any insights or advice would be great.

Ignition sparking on its own with GE mongram gas stove top.


the sparking is one of the switches under the knobs shorted you may be able to open the top and take a switch off 1 at a time and you can figure out what one is shorted.or you can just change all of them.
to stop this you may be able to just unplug the cooktop from under the top.if you unplug the cooktop you should be able to light the burners with a match.
