I have a broken spark igniter on our CVG4380W cooktop. There are 3 igniters, and it's the one for the griddle section.
I assume that to remove the igniter I must approach from underneith, but there doen't appear to be an easy access panel to the area. There's also a blower / exhaust fan assembly to contend with underneith.
What is the best / easiest way to remove and replace the broken spark igniter?
I appreciate any help you can provide!
I appreciate your post. We had just become used to lighting the griddle area with a long handled butane lighter. It seemed easier than going through the labors involved. However, I like the sound of your approach, and because it is probably much easier than removing the whole unit, I will likely go ahead and replace the igniter. I was surprised at how expensive they are though!
There are two panels to remove. One underlaying the grill with (7) 1/4 screws holding it up. This exposes the igniter Use an open end wrench to remove the igniter nut (it will hang on the wire). On the front of the stove top is a vertical black panel. Remove the cover with 1/4" socket. On the right side you'll see a blue relay. The white wire from the grill igniter will be plugged in there. You can tie a string on the end (that plugs into the relay) to ease the installation of the new wire. Or it's easy enough to fish under the upper panel to the control panel. Ensure that you replace the nut on the new igniter.

Could be the igniter isn't sparking, sometimes they get cracked and run to earth you will still hear it click. Remove the top plate and check the wiring and igniters, turn the lights off and you will see if it's sparking all over the place.
If it's two burners on the same side that won't light, it is probably the igniter for that side. If so, remove the grates, griddle, and griddle sub pan, and then lift up the main "pan (if it's like mine, it's hinged at the back and lifts up). Now, if each burner on that side has a tube going to the middle between the burners, the igniter is in that middle section. Mine is a small plug-in ceramic and metal part (see photo). If yours looks like this, contact me at [email protected], I have a spare.
hi gud day,i think the sensor is we have problem is hard to repair in ur own,try to call the person have expireince for repair that unit, or ur igniter ligther have damage like small broken if u hear have click is ok but much better to check the igniter coz the broken igniter is not directly spark in the burner that why is not light.to check if remove the burner base cover then see if the igniter like a small niddle color white,turn the knob to click the igniter then see it wer the spark directly if u not see it means have a broken igniter.
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.
