JENN-AIR CVG4380W SPARK IGNITER

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! Tiseye

    Thanks for your help.  I was in an auto accident, and have been unable to make the repairs yet. I can see how the blower will come out, and I am confident I can do the job because of your help. 



     



    Thanks again!  Your post in response is appreciated!

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!

Thanks for your post.

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.

You should be able to remove the hose from the blower and lift the unit out of the countertop. Then there should be screws around the sides to take out that will give you access to the inside.

Left burner not lighting


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.

Middle section ticking sound with sparking as if trying to ignite even though knobs aa


see this steps and fix it. God bless yo
Relight an oven pilot:
  1. Turn all controls off, open the doors, and allow gas to dissipate.
  2. Hold a lighted match near the tip of the pilot on the burner assembly. If a burner does not light within two minutes, adjust the pilot, step 3.
  3. Turn the pilot adjustment screw (located near the pilot or the thermostat) in small increments and retest until the pilot has a blue flame.
  4. Check and replace an oven spark igniter:
  5. Turn all of the appliance controls off.
  6. Open the door and remove the oven bottom and the baffle (see above).
  7. Unscrew the igniter from its mounting bracket and inspect it for cracks or other defects. Replace it if it is damaged.
  8. To replace a faulty igniter, find the ignition control module, unscrew the cover, and disconnect the module. Install the replacement part and test.

I was given a 36" magic chef gas cooktop with griddle. It was very greasy and dirty, all the burners were sticky and slow to get turned on, but 2 of them refuse to turn on, parts lists say the griddle...


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.

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.
